I'm a big nerd - I enjoy board games, trivia, sci-fi, knowledge in general. I can geek out about instrumental music, Star Trek, certain books/authors.
I've been going to the gym consistently since February and have started to actually enjoy it. I'd be interested in finding someone to hike with since I don't know good hiking trails and it'd probably be something I'd enjoy.
Not really into the bar scene, although if a place has a unique theme or ambiance I'd give it a shot. I'm more interested in playing pool and enjoying conversation than getting drunk.
I've got degrees in both music education and nursing. I work as a nurse doing night shifts on Saturdays and Sundays. That's not going to change any time soon, just giving fair warning.
What I’m doing with my life
Working, learning, self-improvement. I've become a much more positive person in the last few years and I'm pretty happy with who I've become. I'd like to ultimately find a partner in life and start a family.
I’m really good at
Playing musical instruments. Picking up random bits of knowledge.
The first things people usually notice about me
Eyes, I think. Probably depends on the person.
Personality-wise it all depends on the setting in which you meet
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Assassin's Apprentice, by Robin Hobb; Dune, by Frank Herbert (yes, I've read all of them); Earth and The Postman by David Brin; Anne McCaffrey's DragonRider series, I've read all (I think) the books about PERN; The Rowan, also by Anne McCaffrey; The Dark is Rising series, by Susan Cooper (these are young adult books but still good); Phantom, by Susan Kay; the Kushiel books by Jaqueline Carey; The Neanderthal Parallax, by Robert Sawyer
Movies - A Knight's Tale; Moulin Rouge; Gladiator, Ever After, Shrek, Serenity, The Incredibles. In general I enjoy action/adventure and sci-fi. Not particularly into horror.
Music - depends on my mood. Nickelback, the Beatles, and a bunch of musical soundtracks are things I play often. Can't deny that I like classical music; usually I prefer stuff that I've played in band or orchestra, or things I have conducted. It's amazing what a difference it makes when I study a piece of music and then listen - the appreciation is that much greater.
Shows - I tend to watch TV online. Naruto Shippuden, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, and Once Upon a Time are things I've watched lately.
Food - ice cream.
The six things I could never do without

Everything - I think too much
