My self-summary
What I'm definitely not good at: a self-summary.

I'll fill you out when I'm ready!!!!
What I’m doing with my life
Bookseller by trade -- rather poetic since my mother was a librarian and I literally grew up in libraries. But I've always loved being around books.
Away from the job I find myself still reading up on what's new in the world of movies and new cars, not to mention solo scenic afternoon drives in my VW (love road trips), and any opportunity to capture that genuine photographic moment.
I’m really good at
Photography (usually outdoor settings and annual auto show in Detroit), making books of my photos on my laptop.
Recommending cars for friends/family that are searching for a new one.
Collecting books.
Talking about book/comic book to film adaptations at length with friends.
Using passive-aggressive sarcasm during my workouts (really good at that).
Lining my car up perfectly at the car wash without any guidance.
The first things people usually notice about me
To be honest, I'm not comfortable asking someone that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Six things I could never do without
1. My glasses (not for long 😉)
2. A way to listen to music
3. Car
4. A way to take pictures
5. Laptop
6. Principles

***Yes, I did not include my cellphone. Nobody that I know ever calls me. And vice versa. Plus, I didn't include family and friends because they are not things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Different ways of doing things better. Whether it's working more efficiently at the bookstore, interacting more freely with those around me, or fine-tuning my own task management, I always want to do things better.

Whether or not I can read the Harry Potter series, all of it. Yes, I know, how can I love books, work in a bookstore, but have not read them yet?! And I'm aware that the films (which I love) only scratch the surface. But as I have a hard time finishing books - even if I really like them - the H.P. series (and The Lord of the Rings for that matter) is my Mt. Everest.

Future road trips. I love the road and the solitude it offers, not to mention the sights and sounds on the way to point B. Plus, everyone is usually asking me where I'm going next. (To be honest, once you've completed the once-in-a-lifetime road trip, subsequent trips feel less and less fulfilling. Except visiting the Field of Dreams baseball field.)

Adding and subtracting from my dream car garage.
On a typical Friday night I am
Finishing up at work and grabbing some dinner; then hanging out with my friends, going to a movie, relaxing at home, or whatever else the moment calls for.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My first relationship, not to mention my first date, wasn't until I was 25.

And there's barely anything in my fridge.
You should message me if
You've made it this far and are still interested.

You can picture us having intelligent and most likely laugh-out-loud conversations.

You know how to use proper grammar, both written and verbal.

You can take a picture of yourself that doesn't also include the camera-phone you're using to take it.

You want to.
The two of us
