My self-summary
I graduated from a school in Southern Maryland, with a B.A. in Psychology and a Spanish minor. I wanted to be many things, but I think my talents lie in the IT field so that's where I am right now. We'll see where it takes me or where I let it take me.

I like to people watch. I'm usually the person who stands back and observes rather than jumping in with the crowd. I guess part of it is because of my psychology background that I like to interpret people's behavior, but I've always liked to interpret people's actions rather than get myself involved in them directly. Social psychology is what I've studied most, so it always fascinates me when I can accurately identify and perhaps predict social behaviors. I can be a private person, because I'm shy and because it takes me a little while to warm up to people. I'm constantly trying to work on that aspect of myself, but it's difficult. To have a better chance at getting me to open up, you have to be open yourself. I guess that's obvious but you'd be surprised how people don't pay attention.

Another thing, my friends have told me, is that I'm intimidating. I never intend to be a frightful woman, but apparently that's the image I portray. That is one thing I would change about myself if I knew how.

Something else about me.: I value learning, in any shape or form. I like people who can teach me something or expose me to something new that I might come to enjoy, a lot. I guess being open-minded helps a great deal. I also appreciate people who are into substance and not just the superficial.

I love things that most people love: music, books, video games and animals. I also love languages, writing, anime and collecting keychains. I also now love my Subbie.

I am patient, trilingual, and fairly witty
What I’m doing with my life
Working as a system administrator, learning a lot on the job, reading whenever possible, and just trying to continue an upward trajectory both personally and professionally. I'm also trying to learn how to live life more, because I'm often reminded of how easily we take life for granted. I'm trying to appreciate everything a little more, people included. It's all a work in progress.
I’m really good at
Creative writing, or so I've been told. I'm also good at communicating with children and animals, appreciating a large variety of music and trying to practice my technological know-how.

I'm also good at playing devil's advocate for arguments, even if I agree with the other person.

I'm also kinda good at picking up languages. I have Arabic and Japanese next on my list.
The first things people usually notice about me
From a visual aspect: Eyes. I've been told they're pretty, but you are free to take that with a grain or two of salt.
Smile. I've also been told that's nice.

From a mental aspect: I don't know.

* Music.

* Good company.

* An active imagination.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
... Nothing?

Actually, I spend time thinking about what makes people act the way they do. I am fascinated by social psychology and its aspects, so I just like dissecting behavior. I like understanding what makes people do the things they do.

I also spend a lot of time thinking about our country (the United States of America) and the way we're going, and what we're doing with it. With all the recent changes (both bad and good), I guess it can't be helped.

And frequently, I find myself thinking about how to make myself a better version of myself. I'm a work in progress, as most everyone is.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either hanging out with my friends, dancing for hours on end, or relaxing at home, with a pet at my side and a book in my lap. If not the book, then my Blu-ray remote perusing my Netflix queue. I could also be satiating my latest video game craving.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to play Magic the Gathering with the boys in 6th grade. If that makes me a geek, then so be it.
You should message me if
You aren't just trying to hit my vagina. I'm not "DTF."

Pro-tip: If your first message just consists of "hi", feel free to try a little harder. ;)

Also, if I don't respond for a couple of days, then please send me a reminder message! I'm sure I'd love it. :)
