My self-summary
My name is Jaimie (its strange, doesn't have that anywhere else, so now you know!)

I'm a rather good natured person who is somewhat nerdy. (Okay, maybe more than somewhat. It took playing DnD and carrying around a set of die in my purse before I admitted I'm a nerd. :P)

I like anime and manga. I also love to read a lot, particularly urban fantasy (although occasionally will branch out to normal fantasy, sci fi, and very rarely something else.) I like to watch TV series in marathon form (usually while playing FFXIV, unless it is one've my super favorites where I need 100% attention on it). These usually are sci-fi stuff, but much more open to other genres than I am with my books.

Um, I have two cats (Bruce and Wayne, both female xD) and a dog (Mochi) and live with a roommate (male roommate, Dennis), and work as a mechanical engineer.

Lately I've gotten into gardening.... kinda obsessively. I still lack energy most days to do anything with it, but doesn't stop the plant buying or reading or admiring or planning :P

I used to be incredibly shy, and finally growing out of it. In fact the person you meet now, while at the core the same, is unidentifiable from who I used to be. While I'm still shy meeting people, I also tend to be very open and cheerful.

I'm also super honest, and will say things that ppl don't always want to hear, because that's the truth.

Speaking of honesty. I've avoided dating because I'm not as touchy-feely as other people nor do I have many of those desires. We can talk more about this in private, but straight up I will tell you that I have a complete phobia to kissing so that isn't happening, and sex, while still a possibility, isn't going to be an anytime soon activity. It's extremely mortifying and embarrassing being an outlier in this respect and mentioning this publicly, but feel it needs to be said. I hate the idea of people expecting something they may never get with me if they need it.
What I’m doing with my life
Lazing about... hmmm doesn't sound appropriate, but yup...
I’m really good at

I mean... what am I supposed to say? I'm good at... watching tv? Being a goofball? Reading? I guess reading works, because I do read quite a biiiiit...

So yeah! I can be good at random stuff I guess -- I'm not sportsy nor do I have any special talents to put here, so hard to really say what one is good at. :P
The first things people usually notice about me
Well that all depends on the circumstances...

Online? I'm a goofball
In school? I'm a goofball
Interview? I'm um... easily smiling and good humored random person who gets slightly off topic and a little over excited at some things
On the street? Nothing

So yeah! I'm just somebody that likes to smile and laugh and oh, REALLY likes cute things. But by cute things not kittens and stuff, but rather strange big googley eyed things (like the cat bed on the lamp in one've those photos).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Dresden files (Jim Butcher)
Bloodhound files (DD Barant)

Six things I could never do without
My adorable pets (Bruce, Wayne, and Mochi)
Ability to ignore one's body (if you ever get hypersensitive to everything, you realize how amazing and needed it is when you're "normal" and don't feel anything)
I spend a lot of time thinking about

I tend to think a lot, although most the time its nerdy what nots (like I spent the entire trip to and from Kings Dominion to Raleigh (~3 hours each way) thinking about how one would create a purely mechanical calculator... and how computers came about and stupid mechanical crap like that, but also think about stories and what if this character was there or they came here, or whatever)

Also think depressing things as well! Like I'm quite sure everyone else does, and if you don't then lucky you! XD

But yeh, there's not one particular topic that I think about all the time...
On a typical Friday night I am
At home reading a book, watching an anime, watching a tv show or playing FFXIV. Or gardening! Sometimes I'm asleep too. All the socialization at work drains me, so when end of week comes I crash and sleep for a good amount of time. (That doesn't mean I don't like socializing, its just very very very exhausting, especially with more than one person XD)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Doctors have claimed that I might have Asperger's Syndrome... and while I'll ignore that and claim otherwise, fact of the matter is I do share a lot of traits for it. I also (supposedly) have ADD (ok... anyone who knows me and my family will agree that we all have it.)

And I have an "Auditory Processing Disorder." Basically what that amounts to is that I hear perfectly fine but oftentimes information comes in but my brain doesn't always understand it all. So I tend to say "huh?" "what?" "sorry, repeat that" a lot. This one I fully admit I have, the other two are maybes (they can be confused with each other, and I function perfectly well so whatever if I do!)

I'm also on antidepressants... while I am extremely cheerful and goofy and fun around others, alone I tend to fall to the other side of the spectrum. I'm not giving them up though, because they are a big reason I've broken out of my shell and able to speak to people.

(Example: At start of college I wasn't able to call a pizza man. I couldn't ring a doorbell and would wait outside someones house for up to an hour being unable to knock or ring bell. I couldn't go through drive through... Now though I can do all that perfectly fine, and even able to go to an interview w/o any stress over it. Still have some shyness and dislike of phones though, so if I can get away with using internet or email or talking in person rather than phone, I will :P)
You should message me if
You're interested in me for more than how I look :X

And you read the last paragraph on self summary. It's embarrassing saying so, but not gonna lead anyone on, if I start dating it's gonna go slow.
The two of us
