My self-summary
Hi there! Well, this is awkward. Thanks for checking out my profile! I consider myself a lemonade maker. The older I get the more I've come to value being in the moment. Life is too short. That's what brought me here seeking to connect. Down from the clouds, I'm smart, funny, super empathetic, and fun to be with. Nerdy and web connected. Poetic sometimes, soulful all the time. I am seeking someone who is authentic and comfortable in their skin.
What I’m doing with my life
After a good couple of years out, I am back in school working toward a PhD in ethnomusicology. I'm also a musician (vocalist) but haven't found the time to play in a while. Here's hoping that will change soon!
I’m really good at

And singing, writing, laughing, joking, cooking, chatting, and hard work. I'm also a great daughter and friend.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my height, but my sparkling personality is probably a close second. ;)

The six things I could never do without
Good pastries
Perfectly worn-in jeans
My laptop
The love of my family and friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the future, while trying my best to remain in the present.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing from a busy week. Usually something relatively quiet. Happy hour with friends maybe.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
that I know exactly what I am looking for.
You should message me if
you're smart, funny, and are both circumspect about life and focused on being in the moment. :)
