I have a fairly active social life - I like to go out with friends and share good beer and conversation (and sometimes karaoke!), but sometimes I'm happier just staying in and enjoying a good movie. I'm also a fan of the great outdoors; I enjoy nature, particularly a clear sky on a quiet, warm night.
I'm a naturally curious person, and I always enjoy learning new or interesting things, regardless of the topic.
I am pensive, sentimental, and compassionate
When I'm not working, I like to spend time exploring new experiences around the Twin Cities with friends, new and old. I greatly appreciate the sense of community I've found since moving to Minneapolis, and the ease with which I can find other people who share my interests and outlook on life.
I like to travel when I can - I had a summer job in Hawaii in college, spent a few weeks in Europe right after graduation, and I also went to Asia twice on a couple of choir tours. I'll always enjoy the memory of those experiences, how they broadened my mind and showed me new, different perspectives on the world. I'd really like to travel again soon, maybe to Europe again, if I can save up enough money and time off to make it happen.

The beauty of nature.
What impression I make on other people.
Whether or not I truly know myself.
Society, Culture, and the different modes of thinking it molds into us without us realizing.
You love scifi and/or fantasy.
You like to sing or play an instrument and need a Bass or a Clarinet with which to jam. :)
You enjoy long, interesting conversations about anything and everything - from the big questions like "Why are we here?" to the little ones like "Why is this beer/wine/food so tasty?" :)
You just found out something so fascinating and strange that you just have to tell someone about it.
