My self-summary
So, spoiler alert, I'm married as of August 2014, but I'm looking for new friends and people to hang out with in my area. I am a southern girl transplanted around the country. I'm currently working on my PhD in psychology (third year--almost there I hope). I'm always looking for new stuff to do (SCUBA, target shooting, random new musical instruments). I took my first flying lesson this past summer, but I don't think I'll be pursuing a license. I'm big on cooking and I like to make things grow in the garden. I love to travel (although I have yet to see East Asia, Australia or Africa--there's much to do!). I enjoy target shooting and hunting. I also love fantasy football, swimming, dancing foolishly, and drawing (graphite and ballpoint mostly).

I love big cats but I am wary of very small dogs. I have a wonderful black cat named Roland (named for both The Gunslinger series and a favorite Warren Zevon song...that and he comes when I say "Roland," so I guess he likes it), and a red tabby named Olive. I love dogs, too, but I don't have the space or time for a dog right now.

I like the mountains (hiking up them, not falling off of them). I read a lot. I'm really into movies. Netflix is not one of the six things I couldn't live without, but it's damn close.
I think (almost) all drinks taste better through a straw, and I use one whenever I can. I love to travel and want to do more of it. I believe in getting as much out of being alive as possible.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a therapist by trade. I left my job at a private clinic in order to pursue my doctorate. I married someone I found here on OKC! I'm doing research but mostly spending my time doing therapy and teaching undergrads.
I’m really good at
I like to cook and bake and people tell me I'm good at it. I also like to read Tarot (though I don't believe fortunetelling is real--pondering Jungian archetypes is a bit of a hobby). I love games especially spades, dominoes, rummy, MTG, and trivial pursuit. I also love video games (GTA series, Assasin's Creed series, Minecraft, Elder Scrolls, lots of others). I am also decent at sizing people up and remembering the little things about them.
The first things people usually notice about me
My conjoined twin...and my bouncy hair!

Six things I could never do without
Not counting the basics (food, water, air): My passport, good conversation, freedom, solitude, humor and music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
insanity, situational ethics, birds
On a typical Friday night I am
Dinner, outings, or random web-chicanery with my husband, going out with my friends to blow off steam, or, on occasion, just staying at home to do all the stuff I told myself I was going to do earlier in the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I eat peanut butter out of the jar.
You should message me if
You're bored and you want to have a fun conversation.
