This is still a work in progress, much like myself. I need to
update it, but have to think of something sufficiently witty, yet
provacative thing to say, but for now I just need to go to
I hate my job. I work for the TSA, which means, yes, I pat down
your granny and take away her water. I hate my job. Did I say that
already? But it pays the bills, sorta, and is certainly not where I
want to stay.
When I'm not working I'm perfectly happy sitting at home, watching
movies and knitting, but I'm always up for a nice muddy cave trip
too. I can't settle on just one thing that interests me, which
means my life is a bit cluttered at times, but I always try to make
it fun. I love trying new things, even if I have to admit I'm a bit
scared at times.
I love animals, hate self-centered people, and my ultimate
nightmare is becoming a subarban housewife with 2.5 kids, a dog and

What I’m doing with my life
Graduated college in 2007, with degrees in anthropology and french,
with grand plans for my life. But with no real experience, and the
economic collapse that happened just as I graduated, I still don't
have a 'real' job. I had hoped to work with the UN, preferably
overseas somewhere, where I can at least pretend I'm using all my
french classes. If that doesn't work out, I wan't to join the Peace
Corps, something to get me out of the country for awhile, and feel
like I'm doing something worthwhile with my life. Hopefully I can
I’m really good at
knitting, making a fool of myself, typos, noticing random mistakes
in otherwise good books, acting like I know what I'm doing when I
really have no idea, which can lead to interesting results.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes probably, or my hair when I let it do its curly thing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - The Harry Potter series, Diana Gabaldon's novels, Lord of
the Rings, Stephen King's books, especially the Dark Tower series,
American Gods, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and others.
Movies - All the Monty Python movies, Pirates of the Carribbean,
The Princess Bride, Airplane, Labyrinth, Lord of the Rings
For TV - Currently, I'm addicted to Doctor Who (new and old
series), Battlestar Galactica, Lost, and House.
Music - I'll listen to basically anything, but I have a strong
aversion to rap and country music, because of my dad's wife. My
favorite is rock, and my favorite band has been Pink Floyd since I
was about 14. Green Day, Tool, and Korn are really good too.
Food - I'll try almost anything, but I'm not a big meat eater. I
have this thing against seeing the meat still on the bone, I guess
it makes it more apparent that I'm actually eating another being.
But give me a boneless, skinless chicken breast and I'm happy.
The six things I could never do without
My computer, my dogs, water, food, air, and something to keep my
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the future, and what it's going to look like if the world, and our
country in particular continues on the course we're currently set
at. That's why I want to try to make a change, somehow, even if
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm not working, I'm probably hanging out with my friends. If I
have the weekend off, hopefully I'm off getting tired, wet and
muddy crawling through a cave, or off at the river, swimming with
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't have all that much experience in the dating scene, mostly
because I've always been rather withdrawn and reserved, which I'm
trying to change about myself.
Also, I randomly have explosively loud hiccups, which come out with
an actual 'hic' sound, just like in the cartoons. It often startles
strangers, who don't know whether I've sneezed, or set off some
sort of bomb in my throat. It amuses me though.
You should message me if
you want to know more about me, or if you think I'm an interesting
person and that we would get along.
