I'm a morning person, lover of autumn and winter, and an introvert at heart. I think traveling is one of the best things in the world (15 countries and counting), but find myself always a bit nostalgic for DC whenever I'm gone. I think IPAs are a bit overrated, but good beers, wines, and bourbons always make for an enjoyable day. I love books, podcasts are my audio accompaniment for being out and about (though none are NPR-based, which baffles some people), and I'm equally comfortable watching a football game or a Kennedy Center show.
Things I like in a person? I love when someone is independent and smart; when they have passions and interests that make them tick. The type of person who can get asked a question about something and goes on and on in their answer because they're so excited and wrapped up in their interest that they forget they're in a conversation. I love confidence and openness to the world. I like when someone shows they can be equally stubborn and empathetic. And though I would love to find someone who has similar interests to me, I'm looking for someone who can expand my view of the world, and not just share mine.
I was also recently told by a number of people who just met me that I'm the easiest person to talk to and that I make people feel comfortable around me.
TV: Archer, Fresh Off the Boat, the Big Bang Theory, Family Guy, Bob's Burgers, House of Cards, and a bunch of Netflix shows.
Books: I read mostly nonfiction and history..WWII, the Middle East, American Revolution....I love it all! My Kindle is a well-used staple in my life.
Music: I'll listen to everything but country. Yea, I loathe country.
