Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was born and raised in North Carolina. I moved to the Chapel
Hill/Durham area around 15 years ago. I tend to be an easy going
person that enjoys the little experiences in life. I think the
journey is just as important as the destination. My friends will
tell you that I'm a kind and loyal person that tries to give more
than I take. I always try to help a friend in need, no matter what
it takes. I have a quick wit and can be sarcastic at times.
I've always loved being in the mountains on a cool autumn day when
the leaves have changed. I also enjoy a clear summer night, just
looking up at all of the stars. My parents built a cabin outside
Boone a few years back and it is a great place to get away from
city life for awhile.
I love to hang out with my friends and family. I have three
wonderful young nephews that are a joy to see and play with. My
best friend is currently working in Denmark for the rest of the
year, but I still talk to him often through email and Skype. I may
have to plan a trip if he decides to take a promotion and stay
longer. I used to travel a lot when I was younger, but haven't been
able to in recent years. It would be nice to start travelling
locally and abroad again.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've recently been trying to get my career on track again. After a
few unfortunate situations I have finally found a stable position
helping to make vaccines. It can be stressful, but it is worth it.
I work night shift, so there are not as many chances to meet new
people outside of work as there use to be. My shifts are 12 hours,
which means I have more days (nights) off. I do have to work some
weekends, though, but have time off during the week which is nice.
I was always a night owl, but with my schedule I am now up all
night, every night. Now if I could just find something to do at 3am
besides watch infomercials.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Learning new skills, observing my surroundings (good for safety at
work), math, science, gardening, woodworking, troubleshooting and
solving problems, listening, and being a good friend. I've learned
some cooking skills, but would love to get better at it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Most people tell me that I'm quiet when they first meet me. I think
it is usually because I'm trying to learn as much about them as I
can. I open up quickly, though.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I usually read science fiction/fantasy, mystery, and horror to
escape life, but I also like to read history and science books to
learn more about the real world. I've enjoyed many books by Stephen
King and Dean Koontz, as well as Michio Kaku. A recent find that I
enjoyed was The Front Porch Prophet by Raymond L. Atkins.
I'll watch any movie at least once.
As for shows, I enjoy The Big Bang Theory, Burn Notice, The Walking
Dead, Game of Thrones, Fringe, Warehouse 13, and Community. I also
like to watch shows on Discovery, Science, and ESPN networks.
I enjoy most types of music. I've recently been listening to
alternative, rock, and folk bands. Linkin Park, Mumford & Sons,
Iron and Wine, Bon Iver, Calexico, Coldplay, Carbon Leaf, Noah and
the Whale, Frightened Rabbit, Pink Floyd, the Beatles, and Johnny
Cash to name a few.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. my family and friends
3. computer/cell phone/internet
5. a good book
6. sense of humor
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What the past has taught me and what the future may hold.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either at work or at home. I work night shift, so I'm on a
different schedule than most people and don't get to hang out as
often as I would like. When I can, I enjoy having serious
conversations or just goofing off with close friends and a beer.
Cooking at home, going out, and live concerts and events are always
popular as well.
