My self-summary
I'm a pretty adventurous person and like to try new things and see new places, but I also like a good bit of structure and routine when it comes to day-to-day things.

I'm a relatively low-key person. I generally prefer dive bars to clubs, and small gatherings of friends to crazy parties. I'm equally happy going out with friends on the weekend, or staying in to read, watch a movie, or partake in whatever hobby I'm currently enthralled by.

I have a fairly sarcastic/dead pan sense of humor, but I am surprisingly bad at recognizing the like when used by other people. I take things very literally.

I'm a very creative person, and enjoy the company of other artsy/creative people (which is not to say I don't appreciate other types of people). I am a painter, and show my art at various cafes/restaurants around town. Whether or not the outcome is "good" (totally subjective), I enjoy the process of painting. But of course, it is most enjoyable when the end result is a kick ass piece of art.
What I’m doing with my life
For money, I work in project management at a Clinical Research Organization.

For fun, making and attempting to sell things on Etsy, taking graphic design and other art classes, reading, and watching way too much Netflix.
I’m really good at
math and numbers, compooters, making healthy food taste rull good-like, procrastinating for as long as possible and still creating quality work, organizing things.
The first things people usually notice about me
probably the cat hair that is everywhere
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Currently reading Oryx and Crake, My Stroke of Insight, Michelangelo's Mountain, and A Short History of Nearly Everything. It is doubtful that I will actually finish any of them.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Random art projects. What to cook next. My future dog. Life and death.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends, preferably at a place with pool or shuffle board and cheap whiskey drinks. Maybe at a show. Or at home doing arts and crafts. Or at home being lazy. Or at someone else's home drinking and playing board games.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I frequently miss the trash can that is two feet from my desk. It's like at a weird angle or something though....
