Friends and family are very important to me and I spend a lot of time with both of them. I'm caring, loyal, funny and I talk non-stop when I'm nervous.
I think sitting quietly and watching a sunset is a great way to spend an evening. I love riding ferries and leaning over the back rail to watch the engines stirring up the water. Toe rings make me giggle - which is why I wear them.
I love taking pictures and am happy I have a digital camera - I take pictures of weird stuff and the costs of development would be huge! I like to say I'm an "award-winning" photographer, but truthfully the awards came from the Evergreen State Fair. I've chosen to ignore the fact that everybody gets an award just for entering.
I like to camp and love nature in general, but I find I don't go enough. I'm slowly building my own "camping stock" and it was a proud day when I bought my very own tent. However, with that being said, I most like to camp with my sister and brother-in-law as they actually cook while camping. My sister can bake a cake over a camp fire - something that continues to amaze me. If I was left to my own devices, it would be hot dogs, s'mores and chips for the weekend!
I'm looking for someone who is funny and smarter than me. I believe myself to be a pretty funny girl. As for someone that's smarter than me ... I think it's my partner's job to know the stuff in life that I don't. Seems fair, right?
I consider myself "high maintenance". I put others above and ahead of myself and expect honesty and responsibility in return. I expect people to do what they say they're going to do and say only what they mean. I expect someone to give me as much appreciation and respect as I give them. I know that trust is earned - and I expect to earn yours and make you earn mine. See? High maintenance :)
I am looking for someone who isn't afraid of a strong, independent woman. That may seem silly to list here ... but, things are listed for a reason, aren't they? Kind of like the "Do not ingest" labels on bug spray.
I am thoughtful, silly, and chatty
I love girls with guitars, DMB, Barenaked Ladies, Train, MatchBox Twenty, Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Brandi Carlile. I like music that moves me - makes me feel something.
I love to read and will read almost any genre for entertainment, but I'm starting to settle into "paranormal fiction" as I write book reviews for a website that focuses on that. I read purely for entertainment ... and usually in a bubble bath.
About movies, let's just say I have over 200 movies in my Netflix queue. Yep, safe to say that I really like movies. Not just girlie ones - but action movies. Aliens vs. Predators is a particular favorite of mine. Also, any comic book turned movie I am guaranteed to love for some reason.
A brief look at what's currently being recorded by my DVR:
The Good Wife
The Pioneer Woman
The Walking Dead
Marvel: Agents of Shield
..... and those are the ones that I can recall off the top of my head :)
I'm not A-List so if you "like" me, send me a msg!
