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 CRO.

For fun, I like to paint and take art classes. In the past couple of years I have taken classes in wood carving, graphic design and pottery, and am currently learning how to make stained glass. I really enjoy the performing arts and like going to plays, dance concerts and live music.
I’m really good at
numbers, compooters, making healthy food taste rull good-like, procrastinating for as long as possible and still creating quality work, organizing things, following directions, going to great lengths to save a bug who has found itself in a troubling situation
The first things people usually notice about me
my stoic nature and unearthly beauty
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
For books, movies and shows I like sci-fi, fantasy, mystery, and true crime. Haruki Murakami is one of my favorite authors. Recent good reads: Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki, In Cold Blood, Girl on the Train. Current reads: Red Queen and The Making of a Racist. Next up: Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, and The Martian Chronicles

Some food favorites are ice cream and jelly belly beans and chips and salsa

arctic monkeys, animal collective, austra, blonde redhead, broken bells, cold war kids, delta spirit, deer tick, dr. dog, fever ray, gnarls barkley, little dragon, lower dens, maps & atlases, middle brother, minus the bear, modest mouse, phantogram, radiohead, rhcp, rumspringa, the avett brothers, the black keys, the doors, the white stripes, twin sister, yeasayer
The six things I could never do without
animals, creative outlets, a well-deserved drink, a well-equipped kitchen, alone time, my bed/body pillow
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....
