My self-summary
I'm a native Houstonian, back after a stretch in Austin.

I watch Seinfeld re-runs regularly even though I've seen them all a hundred times. I'm a big sports fan, you don't need to be though I have plenty of other interests.

I'm very ambitious, open-minded, and family oriented. My favorite thing to do is laugh.
What I’m doing with my life
I finished grad school and the CPA exams. I work downtown at one of the world's top professional services firms.
I’m really good at
finding the humor in any situation.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm soft spoken and easy going. Physically, people probably notice that I'm tall, skinny, and pale with brown hair and blue eyes.

Six things I could never do without
Wikipedia and Google
competition of some sort (games, sports, etc.)
A good laugh
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my future and my career. Self-improvement. New York City. An overseas secondment.
On a typical Friday night I am
eating out, at a Rockets or Astros game, possibly at the movies if it's Fall/Winter, at a show or taking it easy with a good book or movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
In general I'm very open about everything and I have a bit of a self-deprecating sense of humor. I would say that nothing is too private for me or off limits.
You should message me if
you are interested in me and have a lot of the personality traits I am attracted to: Affectionate, Intelligent, Curious, Animal lover, Good with Kids, Sweet, Caring, Compassionate, Open, Smiles a lot, Happy, Upbeat, Fun, Feisty, Feminine, Stylish

You're confident and would rather just meet up than send messages back and forth.

Or you know how to put a duvet cover on.

If you are a classy Cajun girl, somewhat of a rarity, definitely message me!

Also, I'll add that my only real pet peeve is flakiness.

Note: I'm interested in going to more shows this year. The following acts are going to be in town: Morrissey, Old 97's, Billy Joe Shaver, Frankie Valli, Elvis Costello, and Raul Malo. If you're interested in being a date for any of these shows let's meet for drinks and see if we want to go!
