My self-summary
19 November: London!

17 November: Headed to Budapest!

14 November: headed to Prague, followed by Budapest, and then finally making my way to London. If you have favorite spots - send me a message and I'll gladly check them out!!

4 November: I'm in Vienna for 2 weeks for work. If your an American ex-pat (or an all around awesome guy) willing to take a gal out and show her the city, message me :).

I'm looking for someone who's got ambition. Intelligence is a turn on. Keeping in shape isn't easy - it requires diligence and control. That's why it's sexy. Relationships are give and take, but also requires compromise and communication. I'll take care of you well if you treat me right and make me feel loved.

I'm a nurturing person at my default so I like to take care of the ones love. I'm kind of a nerd. I can be a bit of a snob about some things. I mostly need to learn how to be comfortable in my own skin. I want the finer things in life, but also crave roughing it in the outdoors. I can be a bit of a homebody sometimes. I'm fueled by adventure and wonder about the world. I think experiences shape a person, so living through unique situations and seeing the world makes for an interesting life.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to figure out this whole life thing.

Really just trying to work on me - career, interests, physical/mental health, fitness...
I’m really good at
Treating my friends and family right, finding really awesome places to eat, baking tasty goodies, dreaming about traveling to far off corners of the world (and occasionally traveling to them), running in heels, laying the snarkasm on thick, and basking on the beach.

Don't let the stilettos fool you, doesn't mean I can't trek through the woods or throw down for a wrestling match.
The first things people usually notice about me
I wear my heart on my sleeve.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
- MUSIC -

"Somebody to Love" is highly appropriate for this venue I suppose (and also happens to be one of my favorite songs).

Give me that soouuulll baby.

Also I can lip sync to just about any 90s love ballad and I have a soft spot for 80s tracks.

(P.S. If you thought I was referring to the J. Beebs version of this song, please shoot yourself in the foot because that is an egregious error. EDIT: 2 years later after writing the preceding, his new tracks are pretty dope)

- SHOWS -

I am terribly drawn to procedural dramas like Law and Order and Criminal Minds. If I happen upon it on TV, I'll get totally sucked in.

I can be coerced into watching the occasional anime, especially if it's food or adventure/fantasy related.

I have a penchant for being scared shitless via really terrible horror-type shows. I loved Penny Dreadful and have watched most of the American Horror Story series.

Other than that - anything comedy, adventure, or intriguing usually makes it on my list. I keep tabs on: Blindspot, John Oliver, Great British Bake Off (I'm addicted to sugar), Bear Grylls: Running Wild, Naked and Afraid, The Voice (I don't sing very well, but damn I wish mommy and daddy paid for voice lessons growing up), Game of Thrones, Black Sails...

- BOOKS -

I used to read A LOT as a kid, part of being a really high-achieving nerd. I should dedicate more time to reading these days. I'm a huge fan of historical fiction and The Alchemist remains one of my favorite reads.

- FOOD -

I.LOVE.FOOD.

Everything is up for grabs and no culture is safe from my hungry belly. Street food, fine dining, food trucks, home cooked meals. I love it all. To top it off I have a terrible sweet tooth and I love all things pastry.
The six things I could never do without
-Cafes that serve delicious pastry and coffee
-My friends
-A good belly laugh
-Something to strive for
-A rockin' pair of heels
-A home cooked meal
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My future and how I can improve it to make me a happier, better person.

Where I can travel to next.
On a typical Friday night I am
May be up to any number of things; i.e. concocting a delicious dinner with friends, playing a video game, dancing in the city, watching a movie, jetting off to a weekend getaway - you get the picture. I keep a schedule, but I pretty much just go with the flow.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You'll just have to get to know me better to be privy to any of that information ;)
You should message me if
-You've got the balls to do so
-If you're not a jerk
-If you want a dance partner with whom you can learn salsa, samba, or something else
-You can teach me to squat properly
-You've got a sense of humour
-You want a new climbing buddy at Planet Granite!
-You have a cool new hiking suggestion or fun activity to do
-If you spot a cheap flight and need a last minute travel buddy!!
-You think you we can jive together and you would like to go out on a fun date :)
-If you think you can keep me on my toes in mind and body ;)
