My self-summary
Getting ready to move to the Walnut Creek area from SoCal (early September ek). I'll be working down in San Bruno (I know, the commute, believe me I've thought about this one) so I get to see the entire city every day!

I have a pretty full life and I enjoy it, I've lived several different places, Kansas and Kansas City being home with a slight adoption of DC a few years back :) I make time for the things that are important and I'm looking for someone to come along with me on the ride! I enjoy a good think and a good drink.

Me:
I'm friendly and warm with a love of exploration. Nothing is better to me than a stimulating conversation over a good glass of wine followed by an art show or fun theater. I'm brand new to the area so I'm up for almost anything :)

You (maybe?)
Logical, planner, educated and career minded, down with emotions but perhaps wears them on a sleeve under a heavy coat. Also if you understand mathematics and don't mind someone enjoying just listening to you lecture. I like lectures... listening and once in a while giving them, please be down with this. I also enjoy listening to how you got your PhD. or the different types of education you got including that year you spent globe trotting, just no playing poor. I have a weird soft spot for left handed men... don't ask questions, it just gets weird.
What I’m doing with my life
I am an archivist. I am endlessly curious seriously... and I must know everything. I'm pretty nosy too, I can take 'no' for an answer but I'll try my best to figure out why you don't want to tell me something.

I'm also a writer and have published a few poems. Working on a novel and really wanting to put together a chap book in the future.

I occasionally pick up some part time work grading papers by high school students, this has lead me to several conclusions including the American education system needs an over haul and that I am actually a fantastic writer and to never doubt my talents on that!
I’m really good at
Creative projects, especially writing. Taking long hot showers and wasting water (sorry Cali I am working on it!) eating delicious food, petting my cat (well she will have to tell you if I'm any good at it) working on 'telling it like it is'
The first things people usually notice about me
My contagious laugh!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A) I have a ton of favorite books I read mostly non fiction but enjoy fan fic too! In a few book clubs around town as well.

Currently reading: I read a lot of poetry in random journals.

B) I like the classics. I prefer comedies and some drama, but I don't do horror movies, real life is scary enough.

Current To Watch: Not much right now...

Current Theater: Looking to find some local theater to go to and some buddies to go with!

C) T.V. - I mostly use my TV for news (MSNBC most of the time) and sports. I'm a baseball fan so MLB network is on if the news isn't. Once in a while a House Hunters or two... houseporn it's what's for fun!

D) I'm pretty much open to anything and listen to most things. I listen to lyrics and find the poetry in them, then listen to the actual music. I write parodies so... half the time when I listen to a song I'm trying to figure out how to tweak it.

Current Listens: Randomly found myself listening to late 2000's soft rock and revisiting grad school years... wtf... time for Mike Posner I mean damn... DJ Snake... that's hip right now right!?!

E) I'm a foodie, Ill try anything once!! Big carnivore but also have a thing for cheeses.

Currently Cooking: Going to attempt duck on my own!
The six things I could never do without
Intellectually stimulating conversation
A couple of good friends
Resource of some sort to research and write
Good food
Some sort of stability, I enjoy exploring I just need a place to come back to
One to grow on :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Currently ... the elections, writing, trying to make my poems bleed.
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends, I am a friendly introvert so I enjoy going out and doing things. I go to plays and book clubs and an evening out once in a while. That being said after a few nights of heavy socializing I need a day or so to recover so depending on how the rest of the week goes depends on what I want to do on Friday :) Just ask though!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Avid Fan-fic reader... yeah. I'm pretty open on things so there isn't much to hid ... also everything I think is written on my face.
You should message me if
I can't see if you star me so leave a message!

Be the Spock to my Kirk!
