My self-summary
Alaska born and raised, I have moved out of state several times only to be drawn back home a few years later.

I am outgoing and personable, and I thrive on new experiences. While I'd ideally like to meet someone to settle down with (and let's face it, isn't that why we are here) settling down does not mean settling.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for a communications company as a business service representative. The job pays the bills and puts food on the table.

I also commute to the valley one night a week to teach a night class at the community college. The job doesn't pay the bills, but is my passion.
I’m really good at
Convincing the undergrads I teach that I know as much as they think I do.

Actually, cooking, I'd say I am a pretty damned good cook. Not the next great chef good, but I've never received a complaint before. (I take that back, I once made a from scratch spaghetti sauce, I only found out after the meal was prepped that the guest did not like onions.)

I am extremely punctual and tend to become annoyed when people are not.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I fidget and can not sit still for long periods of time. I always seem to have a book on me. I am energetic and it's not because of the copious coffee intake (well perhaps slightly).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Book: Song of Ice and Fire, LOtR, short stories in the New Yorker and Harper's Mag. I've been on a kick reading modern novels lately, but I find when I finish them they leave little impact.
Suggestions? Like all fans, I eagerly await The Winds of Winter

Favorite playwrights:
Albee, Strindberg, Mamet, Simon, Racine, Aeschylus, Moliere, Shakespeare, Wilde, Labute

TV: Until just a few months ago I had not owned a TV in over a decade. Now that I am working for (that company), and they provide free TV service, I have one and do not have to rely on watching shows online.

Plays: As You Like It, Rosencrantz and Gildenstern are Dead, Fat Pig, Under the Yum Yum Tree, Desire Under the Elms, A View From The Bridge, The Birds, The Visitor, The Homecoming, The Owl and the Pussycat, Barefoot in the Park, I Love You, Jimmy Spud, Closer....the list could go on and on....

Food: I enjoy cooking and make a habit of trying new dishes regularly. Nothing beats prepping a meal at night, putting it in the slow cooker before work, and coming home to a (hopefully) fantastic meal.

Music: The Sex Pistols, Offspring, Velvet Underground, Blondie, The Ramones, Carpenters, Mamas and the Papas, Beatles, Police, Eurhythmics, Neil Diamond, Eagles, REO Speedwagon, E W&F, Blink 182, MXPX,
The six things I could never do without
Theatre
coffee
something to read
Vernors Ginger Ale
Black-out curtains
I spend a lot of time thinking about

When am I going to have time to crack open whatever it is I am reading at the time.

Whether I should bite the bullet and leave AK again to pursue life goals
On a typical Friday night I am
Heading downtown to grab a drink at a bar and people watch
