Some random facts about me: I am fiercely loyal to those I love. I have a big dumb heart when it comes to animals. I like animals more than people. I don't actually like "people" as a whole, but I love individuals. My head just about explodes when I witness someone spreading misinformation - a little piece of me dies in those moments. Piggybacking on that, I am a research addict - I probably missed my calling as a professional researcher/fact checker.
I love to read (LOVE to read), bake, cook, watch movies, socialize. I am addicted to learning. I read just about everything that I come across, including shampoo bottles and cereal boxes. I have my books split into libraries and small collections. I used to work in a library and the desire to have my own personal library (a room dedicated to books and reading) only intensified.
I would like to find a partner with whom to share my life, but I do not need a partner. I'm very independent, but it's nice to have someone with whom to share triumphs and tribulations and to know that someone has my back and I have theirs.
I talk a lot. Online chat, text messaging, phone, in person...whatever the medium, I talk. A lot. Fair warning.
I am talkative, opinionated, and fun.
One of my best friends describes me as "Introspective, but outspoken." I think it fits.
And I'm pretty good at knitting and other fiber crafts/needlework. Makes me sound like a granny, but I love it.
I'm also told I'm quite funny (I think I'm just goofy...lol).
Movies: I don't watch as many movies as I'd like to, but I enjoy comedies, dramas, and I love documentaries.
TV shows: I find that I don't really watch TV anymore. I wind up DVRing things and watching them 4-5 months later when I find myself with absolutely nothing to do and start feeling aimless.
Music: I like almost all music - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers is my favorite band of all times - I've seen them in concert three times and hope to see them more. I love classic rock, new rock, alternative, some country, classical...I like music.
Food: I like a wide variety of foods, but I adore Pad Thai. Cheese is necessary to survival - good cheese, that is (Gruyere and the sharpest cheddar possible). I enjoy making food as much or more than I enjoy eating it.
Electricity (I don't do well in power outages - they are a pet peeve of mine)
Physical affection (I really like hugs, even if it does sound a little lame)
My daughter (of course)
- My future.
- Whatever books I'm currently reading. And the books I'm going to read next. And the books I want to buy. And the books I've bought yet haven't read...
- Where the universe ends. It freaks me out to think about it, but I can't help it.
- What I want to be when I grow up.
- School. I love learning, but I'm not well suited to the "traditional student model." It's not easy for me, and I struggle with it, but I still love it.
You are looking for something that has potential.
You are looking for a new friend - I'm always interested in meeting new people!
Please don't message me if alcohol is a huge part of your life...I'm sober and don't really want to date someone who drinks all the time. Occasional drinks are fine, I don't have a problem with that...but daily? Nope, can't do it. Sorry!
