My self-summary
I'm shy in person when I first meet people... but once I get to know you I'm quite outgoing, silly and fun. I love reading books, listening to music, baking!, perusing the internet, watching movies or just hanging out with a few close friends. I prefer the company of close friends over random, loud parties.

I'm color blind, so if I ever upload a picture where my clothing does not match, please don't blame me. I often think my clothes are colors which they simply are not. It's nice to have met one other color blind friend who knows the frustration of buying a lovely pair of corduroys, thinking they're grey, but learning they're green. Arghh! But the tag said GR!!!

I just started volunteering with PAWS. It's heart-breaking and rewarding. I want to adopt all of the animals.

I am well-read, affectionate, and bashful
What I’m doing with my life
I currently work for Dyson... the sweet sweet vacuum company. Although, technically I'm part of the Airblade hand dryer team (even better if you haven't experienced it yet!). Check us out online!

I started running again this summer. How the heck do you manage running outdoors during a Chicago winter?
I’m really good at
Reading, writing and arithmetic. Baking cookies--seriously. People swoon over my cookies. NOT watching television. Eating double stuff Oreos. Dressing myself (even if the colors don't always match...). Sharing space. Loving animals. Sleeping. Making my bed every morning.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm quiet/shy, energetic, silly, fashionable and fit.
Oh, and I have cool, cool glasses.

Six things I could never do without
Only Six?

Dogs, friends, books, computers, family and dogs. And bookstores. And hot chocolate. And the sun. And girls. And cereal. Yes, cereal.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The future, my career path, how much wood could a woodchuck chuck, why is it so bloody cold, what book to read next... the usual stuff.
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading, watching a movie, with close friends, on the internet, at Barnes & Nobles or Borders, at Panera, etc
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have boxers with Beagles on them. Boxers with Dalmatians. Boxers with Chihuahuas. Boxers with Dachshunds in sweaters. And boxers with... Boxers on them!
You should message me if
You really, really want to. If we appear to have enough in common. If you just want to give it a shot. If you're my soul mate. If you want to bring over some Double Stuff Oreos. If you have a dog and want to share. If you want to go to Target.
The two of us
