My self-summary
Well, I grew up in Conyers but always wanted to live in city. I like to think that I'm funny, people like to say that I'm silly, and others complain that I'm sarcastic. I'm a bit adventurous, usually in the form of travel when I can pull it off. I also am pretty easy going and can enjoy a good patio and beer as much as night at home watching netflix. I might seem a little shy at first, but that goes away as you get to know me. What I definitely am though is kind, a good friend, and the requisite amount of stupid that everyone should be (just enough to make life interesting but not enough to regret). Some random facts about me, I'm from the south yet I don't like grits, for the longest time I seriously thought flamenco dancing was flamingo dancing, and to this day I cannot spell the word bureaucrat without looking it up first...which I did in order to write that sentence.
What I’m doing with my life
I studied history, international affairs, and also some languages that I can either speak very well or at least fake it for a couple of words. I then joined the Peace Corps and taught English in Kazakhstan for two years which was terrifying, frustrating, and amazing all at the same time. After surviving that fiasco, I moved back and bought a house near Grant Park and am enjoying settling into the city. I graduated from Kennesaw with a masters in conflict management and am loving the roller coaster world of the Job Search! Right now I work for an audio visual company which keeps me busy and at least gets me into Dragoncon for free each year.
I’m really good at
Cooking, frisbee related games, riding horses, remembering obscure facts about random movies, joking around, and climbing trees (though honestly that was done mostly in my younger days).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like a lot of things but usually read books about history, politics, and science fiction. For example The Great Game, Ender's Game, Vernor Vinge's books. I also like most genres of music. As long as it is a good song I don't care if it's pop, rap, or country. Though blues is probably my favorite. As for movies, a few examples: The Big Sleep, Arsenic and Old Lace, Escape from New York, Top Secret, Star Wars, Anchorman... and many more. My favorite food tends to be anything that tastes good, and I love to try cooking new recipes. My favorite show by far is Community, but I also like Suits, Walking Dead, Doctor Who, Silicon Valley, Game of Thrones, and more...dvr is a great invention.
The six things I could never do without
Well, indoor plumbing is pretty nice. Besides that, beer, movies, traveling (or at least the hope of traveling soon), friends, family. Not that I'm materialistic but 6 seems rather limiting.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Things that confuse me..... Also, Places that I still want to see and other stuff on my bucket list.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing with friends out or at home watching something while doing a crossword puzzle
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was captain of the Model United Nations team in college.
