My self-summary
My eyes change colors. I'm a little obsessed right now with craft brews. I'm passionate about compassion and justice. I wear dresses because it makes me feel girly. Yet I love some good hockey fisticuffs. Go Flyers! Baking cupcakes makes me feel unreasonably accomplished. When I drive, I roll the windows down and sing as loud as I can. I can build a one match fire and man a canoe like nobody's business. I can't imagine life without Wikipedia. I want to buy a house and learn how to lay tiles. I love to get dressed up and go out for special occasions, but I'm just as happy to spend the day exploring the city and the evening at home with some quality Netflix time. I'm a pro at making do on three hours sleep and then crashing for twelve the next night. I try to learn something new everyday. My faith is an essential part of my life.

I'm looking for the perfect Amazing Race partner. The punk to my rock. The wit to my banter. The one who makes the every day feel like an adventure. He must love silliness, tolerate NPR, and be willing to make all the important phone calls. Snuggling addicts welcome. Intelligence is hot. Facial hair and glasses don't hurt either.

I am optimistic, compassionate, and talkative.
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a nurse at a hospital in center city on the night shift. I like my unconventional schedule. I just finished my MSN to become a Nurse Practitioner and passed my boards. Now my life is all about licenses and finding the perfect job.

Three things I'd like to do right now:
1) Travel. Niagara Falls? Disney World? Any National Park in the country? Afternoon in NYC? Yes and please. I need a travel buddy!
2) Quizzo. A standing quizzo date would be awesome. If you're good, it's even better!
3) Beer. I never really liked beer, but awhile ago I went to a beer tasting and gained a whole new appreciation for it. Now I'm just enjoying sampling new brews. I've gotten pretty good with being able to pick something I'll like, but I'm still intimidated by certain varieties. IPAs, I'm talking about you.
I’m really good at
I'm good at being random, awkward, and 5 minutes later than I meant to be. Also making to-do lists that never quite get completely crossed off. I'm great at obnoxiously loud hiccups. Just not at stopping them.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile. And my hair. It's probably my most distinguishing feature.

My friend calls me the coolest nerd he knows. I'm pretty proud of that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I love to read! The Anne of Green Gables Series, anything by C.S. Lewis, The Ragamuffin Gospel, Emily Dickinson poetry, Pride and Prejudice, Gone With the Wind, A Tale of Two Cities, Rich Christians in an Age of Hunger, Pathologies of Power by Dr. Paul Farmer, and A Generous Orthodoxy by Brian D. McLaren. I love to read the "classics", most recently Emma and The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. I read Hillary Clinton's autobiography which made me want to hug her. I'm not above reading what's popular at the moment. Right now I'm reading The New Collected Poems of Wendell Berry and The Edge of Eternity.

Movies: Gone With the Wind, Casablanca, Life is Beautiful, Harvey, Memento, Monty Python's The Quest for the Holy Grail, Top Gun, When Harry Met Sally, Fight Club, Gandhi, 50 First Dates (I cry every single time I watch it even though it's silly!), American President, Knocked Up, 500 Days of Summer, and Amelie. Lately I love nothing more than French films. Go subtitles. I love documentaries in an unhealthy way.

Shows: How I Met Your Mother, 30 Rock, Arrested Development, Downton Abbey, Parks and Rec, The League, Law and Order: SVU, Covert Affairs, Girls. I'll watch pretty much anything on HGTV.

Music: Well...I listen to 104.5 and that should give you a general idea of my taste. But I love so much other stuff too. Right now I'm addicted to Ray Lamontagne, Jason Mraz, Ry Cooder, Jewel, Hootie and the Blowfish, Ingrid Michaelson, Joshua Radin, Janis Joplin, The Beatles, and Cake. Add the Fratellis, Adele, Mumford and Sons, Taylor Swift, and a strange obsession with Pitbull.

Foods: Thai, Asian fusion, Chinese, Ethiopian, my grandmom's mashed potatos, dessert, red flannel hash, really good Jersey Italian, croissants, scones, animal crackers, anything peanut butter, guacamole, Greek, sushi, french fries, breakfast (all of it!)

Worth mentioning. I've also become a big fan of public radio/podcasts. My favorite shows right now are This American Life, PodMed, Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, A Prairie Home Companion, Serial, and Thrilling Adventure Hour. I'm always looking for new ones.
Six things I could never do without
1) Bunny, my stuffed bunny. What a creative childhood mind. I've had him since I was 5 and he's still a total security blanket. I need to know where he is in order to sleep.

2) Faith and all the wonderful people I've met because of it

3)'s the only way I can keep up with all my friends scattered all over the world

4) A book to read. And/or my Kindle.

5) Some kind of chapstick.

6) My color coded Google Calender.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Politics. I try to keep up on what's happening in the world.

How to be a better person in general.

Plans for my next up is a weekend in Hoboken visiting my best friend and nephew.
On a typical Friday night I am
Not working every one! For the first time since September. I forget what to do on Friday nights!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't sleep without an eye mask and earplugs.
I am hopelessly clumsy.
I really enjoy crocheting.
I own ducky footie pajamas.
I once built a 7 level tower out of sugar packets. I have never been able to duplicate this, but I occasionally enjoy trying.
You should message me if
If you think I'm fascinating and wonderful.

You're looking for a smart, sometimes silly, usually smiling, independent lady for debates, dining, and general adventures.

If you're a hipjackster. Ask for details.

You have male answer syndrome. Yes, it's real and I like it.

You want to drink seasonal beer with me.

If you're a Christian who can tolerate my liberal leanings, or a liberal who isn't afraid of a girl who goes to church.

If you send me a copy paste form message, I will respond with a link about how to write a first message. You probably won't like that. I consider it my public service to the ladies of OkC.
The two of us
