Living in Athens GA and seeing what kind of new adventures I can get myself into. I've lived in Athens for quite sometime now and yet still find new communities and people to meet all the time. I have a great circle of friends/family having stayed here for some time now but am always interested in meeting someone new. If I'm not Salsa Dancing at Little Kings on Weds, getting involved with local theater on the weekends, or finding the latest new restuarant food to share with the rest of the world. Then I'm at home unwinding with Netflix browsing and thinking of food ideas and wanting to get into food blogging
What I’m doing with my life
I recently started a new job in Winder working for an online company, it has "normal" hours to allow me to do my other interests and be "responsible" as well.
I'm always on the lookout for new ways to better myself through various activities... Most recently been going to dance events that allow me to blow off steam and learn from very talented people!
Involved with the local community theater (musicals and the likes) and also finding various volunteering around town I.E. the Athens Roller Derby team.
I enjoy cooking, its therapeutic, finding a recipe and then slightly altering it... That's the fun part but mainly I just enjoy sharing what I've made with people and seeing them happy is what keeps me motivated and that enjoyment has spread through other venues of my life.
I’m really good at
Meeting people; I've been told I'm very approachable and easy to
Also, I have an unusually high number of contacts or information of
local food businesses, people/back stories.
More on this later.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told that I have this way of making people feel comfortable around me(usually...). If I were to pick something physically I've been told my smile has been noticeable in the past.

On a typical Friday night I am
-Doing whatever catches my attention that night.

-Going out with friends to find a place to dance downtown or grab a
light drink/ amazing food place and relax.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a Real hard time walking on grass bare foot and cilantro tastes like poor choices to me (its genetic!)
While not the most PRIVATE thing to say, figured it's a good opener for you to ask more questions.
You should message me if
You are up for saying hello in person one day; as much as I enjoy meeting new people online you learn more about people over coffee/food once compared to several emails. This whole online OKC stuff has been odd to say the least but let's do this.
