I am a workaholic, by neccessity not by choice. I am a college student with loans to pay, and the current job market blows to say the least. Although I love my job, it doesn't exactly rake in the cash, and until I win the lottery or pay my debts off thats a huge factor for me. (Hence why I decided to pursue a more practical degree in nursing). If money wasn't an issue, I believe I would choose to work quite a bit as I enjoy the field I'm in, and I can't stand to sit still or be unproductive if I can help it.
When I don't work, or go to class (which is 1 day/week if I'm lucky), I do a myriad of things. I usually catch up on sleep, hangout with friends, read (usually related to alternative medicine), play videogames (XBOX360), knit, workout, surf the internet, watch netflix (mostly anime/cartoons or documentaries) or finish up classwork. I used to party like it was 1999, but now I try to take life a little more seriously. (Not that I don't want to have fun, but there is more to life than getting high/wasted).
I'm nerdy/geeky by nature. I simply LOVE to learn. I find knowledge so empowering, and addictive. For those of you who don't believe me, just check out my Facebook page and look at how many colleges I've attended throughout my life so far.
So, I am sure you're wondering, what does this all mean? It means I like the Discovery Channel, the History Channel, the National Geographic Channel, documentaries, politics, talk radio (NPR), and philosophical discussions. It means that I am the archetypal eccentric absent-minded professor (Think Doc Brown) and find intelligence far more sexy than any other quality a person could have. (Although a great sense of humor comes in at a close second.)
Despite being a very independent, blunt and on occassion absurd woman (I earned the nickname "Miss Oblivious" after all.) I am quite loyal. I don't give up on people or relationships easily.
I may not have much in terms of money or physical things, but whatever I do have I share readily, and will almost never turn down an earnest request for help. (from being an unofficial chauffuer, a tutor, a last minute babysitter, a shoulder to cry on, or a unpaid maid, you can rely on me to come when called).
So if you wouldn't mind dating or befriending Phoebe from "Friends", find Edward from "Cowboy Bebop" adorable, or feel Milly from "Trigun" is more perceptive than she looks; then I may just be the one for you.
