My self-summary
I like to dance, have adventures, and eat.

I sing in my car, and dance while I shower and cook.

I also love spending time with my cats (don't worry, there's only two of them), but am unfortunately given to calling them my "kids" (oh yeah). I will choose them over you if you put me in a position to do so, so maybe don't do that.

I have a genetic propensity to being sort of tightly wound (thanks mom) as well a predisposition to lateness (thanks dad). We all struggle with not becoming our parents, so I'm working on both of these faults. No no, don't worry, when I've mastered these there's plenty more to keep me busy ; )

I haven't prioritized dating for many years, preferring instead to focus on my career and personal independence. It still doesn't rate very highly, I won't lie, but everyone keeps telling me that I'll make time for the "right person". I snear sarcastically every time this is said to me, but I'm open to the possibility.

The rest you'd need to ask about...
What I’m doing with my life
Trying not take myself or others too seriously... it's a work in progess.

Working as a psychiatric nurse in the community. UPDATE: I've been promoted! I'm going to being getting a medically enhanced residential psych support team up and running--- they're making me the boss-lady. This is very exciting, but will mean that I will be exceptionally busy for a while. Don't be sad if I don't respond to your message for some time after you send it because dating will be getting placed lower on the list of priorities for a bit.

I enjoy being active. I have been into ballroom dancing for a few years and recently started training in Krav Maga. ( I know, I know--- I tried yoga first. Turns out I'm just not that fucking zen. ) I also hit the gym regularly. Exercise is how I deal with stress... and that third helping that I just needed to have...
I’m really good at
Being really organized at work, and completely sloppy at home.

Exceeding the speed limit without getting caught.

Cooking, and wearing my frilly red apron while I do so.

Shaking my groove thang.

Being straightforward about what I want.

Resetting the time on electronics, including the one in your car.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told that my posture is remarkable. I stand up straight, don't you?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read more than most people I know, but still less than I used to. I'm typically reading two books-- one on the treadmill and one in my leisure time. My treadmill book is either a trashy romance novel or straight up erotica, both of which will get me on the treadmill and staying there for an hour at a time. My leisure book will vary between something enlightening or entertaining. My favorite book is The Blood Oranges by John Hawkes and I've devoured many books by Kerouac. However, I have also read the entire Hunger Games, Twilight, and Fifty Shades of Grey series. Anything that blows my hair back!

I don't watch TV. I haven't had any sort of TV programming in my home for over 6 years and I do realize this makes me very odd in most people's eyes. I watch only movies! And I'm pretty open to most genres, though I don't usually prefer war movies. I will admit to a growing library of cheesy dance flicks-- it's a weakness!

My music preferences vary from day to day. But I'm not typically in for country, hard-core gangsta rap, or screaming metal.

I LOVE food-- eating, making it, thinking about it endlessly... I have a very short list of things I won't eat.
Six things I could never do without
1. Coffee
2. A hairbrush and Chapstick
3. My sister
4. My "kids" (you were warned)
5. Can I list coffee again?
6. Dancing
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Food. What it will be, where I will get it, and when I will put it in my belly. Then, belatedly, when I will be visiting the treadmill.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hitting the gym before going out to see friends, but only if I have the energy! I'm just as happy to spend time cooking a nutritious and extravagant dinner and having a glass (or two) of wine in front of a movie. Most recently, my Fridays are predominantly spent going out with the weirdo I met on this site before you...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm allergic to latex. Not throat-closing near-death allergic, but it's not pleasant. Too many latex gloves in nursing school made this happen.
You should message me if
You can handle a moderately eccentric, fiercely independent, potential-future-cat-lady type.

You know and understand the words to "Hold on Loosely" by 38 Special.

You know better than to ask for "sexy pics" before you've even met me.

You want to take me out for Brazilian rodizio where you will manage to not be disgusted when I insist on eating chicken hearts, followed by gin drinks and salsa dancing, because this is currently my idea of a perfect date.

And finally, you should message me if you're NOT the douche who reported the picture of my kids that was then removed by the moderators. You know who you are.
The two of us
