I get a natural high from live music, meeting new people, and learning completely new things.
I'm a Louisianan, so I'm well versed in drinking and eating crawfish (hence the pescatarian, I haven't managed to give up seafood yet). I love to dance. To any type of music at any time. I've been known to break out at a Waffle House. I love to sing even if I'm not particularly talented, but I don't do karaoke. I like board games and bonfires and beaches and forests and cities and mountains and waterfalls. I like having my bare feet on soft grass or in warm sand. I like to imagine shapes in the clouds. I'm not one for sports, but I do enjoy hiking, camping, and yoga.
I tend to use big words when I'm nervous or in new company, so I think I come across as arrogant. I also get easily distracted so can seem aloof. But I like hearing people's stories, and I'm really good at making friends everywhere I go.
It's probably worth saying that the thing I'm most interested in is making friends. It's great if it goes somewhere, but I have no expectations in that regard. I want to meet people who share interests, but can also teach me something new and vice versa.
I have a master's degree in public relations and 5 years of work historyin the world of public health with HIV/AIDS, then a few years in an environmental conservation organization. I work in marketing for a private school now.
Music: I tend to stick to indie, but what a wide range that is. Some of my favorite bands are The Decemberists, Eels, Old 97s, Harvey Danger, Rural Alberta Advantage, Okkervil River, Hey Rosetta!, Rilo Kiley, Aesop Rock.
TV: Firefly, SG1, Scrubs, Psych, Dead Like Me, Castle, Dr. Who, Supernatural. I don't have cable, so what I watch, I watch online. I enjoy Television, but hate scheduling myself around it, so I'm usually out of the loop.
I love food. Period. I'm usually up for anything, though I have a particular fondness for Indian and Latin fusion. I don't cook much myself, but I'm happy to help in the kitchen anyway.
Oh, and tacos. I've been known to eat tacos for every meal for days without even noticing.
Will I ever *really* be able to play the ukulele (It won't be for lack of trying)? Where can I find my next taco? Where am I going this weekend? What bands are playing in town tonight? If my floor were lava, how would I ever get to my bedroom? (related: start studying parkour)
