My self-summary
I like nerdy things: fantasy, anime, supernatural stuff, books, post-its, etc. I'm going to be a published author at some point. I just need to, you know, finish writing a book. I've won NaNoWriMo twice, but I'm the kind of Nano writer that has maybe 20k decent words and 30k words of absurdity by the end of the month.

I read a lot. I wish I did it more often, but I'm not fast enough to read 100 books a year like some people. And I also enjoy other things, like TV and stupid phone games, so my list of books to read stays long. I can't imagine not having a book I wanted to read next. That'd be some apocalyptic shit right there. I mostly read fiction because I write fiction. But sometimes nonfiction sneaks in.

I try and go boxing in the mornings before work, but it's hit and miss (ha!). I really like sleeping. When I do get my ass out of bed, I love my mornings. I exercise, meditate, and write. But making good, healthy decisions before my adderall kicks in doesn't always work.

I'm fat, but OKCupid didn't have that option. The word overweight is a downer and I have more than a little extra. So I chose curvy, but that usually connotates an hourglass shape and that's not me. Look at my pics and make sure I'm you're type. :) I care more about whether or not we can talk and laugh together, but I totally get that everyone isn't like me. I'm cool with it.

Other important/random facts: I live with my sister and have two cats. I used to be Mormon, but not anymore. Grapefruit is my favorite scent. Courier is my favorite font. And I'm always happier when it's raining.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a director of operations at a digital advertising company. I make sure everyone on my team likes their job and that we have fun on a regular basis. Work takes up so much of our lives. The more of it you can enjoy, the happier you'll be.

I'm writing my first novel. It's about learning to love yourself for who you are. It's got fairies, a mad scientist of sorts, love poloygons, and parallel dimensions. I need to figure out how to utilize all my digital advertising expertise to build an audience for myself, but it hard to find the time. #excuse D:
I’m really good at
Writing (if I do say so myself, which I do), making my bed in the morning, singing in the car when I'm completely alone (so everyone just has to take my word for it), understanding body language and facial queues, managing people, making people feel comfortable, and proofreading.
The first things people usually notice about me
I honestly have no idea. Probably either something I've said (in order to get noticed), often something snarky or funny, or simply that I'm happy. I have resting nice face.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I hate reading long lists of every single favorite on someone's profile, so I'll give you three of each.

Books: Jane Eyre, Catcher in the Rye, and Peter Pan

Movies: Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring, Darjeeling Limited, and Millennium Actress

Shows: The X-Files, Scrubs, and Game of Thrones

Bands: U2, The Killers, and Arcade Fire

Noms: cheese, bread, and Reese's
Six things I could never do without
rainy days
books
people that love me
alone time
something to do
occasional vacations
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I often think about things I would say to people if I had the guts and eloquence to say them. Or I think about new story ideas.
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm usually at home reading, seeing a movie that just came out, or going out to eat.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I talk out loud to my cats all the time, but not in a cool, casual voice. It's usually a high-pitched, sort-of-like-a-baby-voice kind of thing. Don't worry, they look at me like I'm obnoxious when I do it.
You should message me if
Message me if you want to, but if your message looks like you could have sent it to 100 other people on here, I'm not going to answer you. I like it when people listen to me, which means I want to know if you read my profile for reals. And I prefer creativity over cliches. :)
