My self-summary
Where to start? I'm twenty-five, ridiculously cheerful, and a total nerd. I'm a bit of a workaholic, but I spend my free time with reading comics or terrible fantasy novels, running up to NYC to catch a Broadway show, filling my unholy addition to Glee, and wandering around DC attempting to have a social life. I have a really bubbly personality and I love laughing and trying new things.
What I’m doing with my life
Like I said, I'm a bit of a workaholic. I work onboard one of the best trains in the nation (hence the super non-creative username) and I absolutely love my job! It keeps me away from home most of the time and the unpredictable schedule means that I can only schedule things a day or two in advance, but that's just the price I have to do for having such a interesting career.
I’m really good at
Being crazy optimistic and bubbly. finding pretty much everything funny, not taking anything seriously, looking cute in a beret, writing (but not about myself, which should be at least semi-obvious at this point), getting horribly lost in parts of the city that I should know, and making goofy faces on roller coasters just in time for the souvenir camera to flash.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile. I have a giant, goofy smile and I'm smiling probably 99% of the time. It's my default expression.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
1. The Harry Potter series. I'm a total Hufflepuff.
2. Pretty much anything by Mercedes Lackey, but especially her 500 Kingdom series.
3. Lord of the Rings. Enough said, right there.

1. Anything based on my favorite books, although I will nitpick the hell out of them if you'll let me.
2. Stardust. This is like my all-time favorite movie because it's the only fantasy movie that is completely awesome without actually taking itself seriously. It's also one of the only movies that I'll ever say is better than the book, because as much as Neil Gaiman rocks, this movie just blew his book out of the water. I'm pretty sure he wrote the screenplay, though, so it's cool.
3. Pretty much anything in the romcom or horror genre. Or if it has superheroes. I also like pretty much anything with sci-fi/fantasy leanings, but I can be picky.

1. Glee. Yes, I'm kind of obsessed. No, I won't make you watch it. yes, you get bonus points if you do.
2. Doctor Who. Ninth Doctor is my favorite, with Ten close behind. Eleven has yet to really grow on me.
3. Torchwood, although I completely stopped watching after Children of Earth Part Four. I'll try to pick it back up once I stop mourning.

Lots of Broadway and a little bit of Top 40/whatever my friends throw at me.

I'll try anything once, but I'm not a huge fan of spicy food and I'm kind of weird about pizza. My favorites are Spanish tapas and sushi. Ice cream is 100% the way to my heart.
The six things I could never do without
1. My iPad. Since I moved away from all my friends/family about two years ago, my iPad is my one huge connection to them. Plus, internet.

2. Pita chips and dill dip. It's like my number one go-to snack.

3. Upbeat music.

4. Broadway shows. The best part about my job is the free rail travel. I try to run up to NYC to catch a show at least once a month.

5. My purse. My purse is the source of my power. It's got at least three electronics in it at any given time, plus an assortment of make-up, money and who knows what else.

6. Fuzzy socks. I might just be saying that right now because my feet are cold, though.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
"What if" situations. Anything from "What if I got a cat?" to "What if aliens invaded and recognized my complete awesomeness and decided to crown me queen and whisked me away to have all sorts of fantastic adventures?"

I also tend to get lost in whatever the last awesome thing I saw/read/watched was. I'm one of those people who is just incapable of having a mild interest in something. Er, that doesn't apply to people. I swear I'm not one of those crazy "I know we only met once, but I'm ready to get married and have babies!!!1" people.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually I'm at work. If not, I might be at home cooking or out at a movie or at dinner with friends. A few Fridays out of the year, I make a point to go to an anime/sci-fi/pop culture convention of some sort because those are the most fun ever.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I write slash fanfiction, because I'm on that weird fangirl end of the nerd spectrum.

I'm a total klutz and will probably fall down an escalator during our first date or something equally embarrassing.

I'm secretly a Disney Princess.
You should message me if
If you're a nerd who's interested in my nerdiness and would like to go out and do nerdy things together and/or talk about nerdy things together.

If you like having fun doing things because guess what? I like having fun doing things. Crazy how much we have in common.

If you're interested in more than just a hook-up because sex without a long-term relationship really isn't my thing.

And if you're having trouble breaking the ice, just give some random opinions on books or television shows that I mentioned and I can almost promise that'll get me talking. :P If you haven't read/seen anything I listed... what's wrong with you? You seriously haven't read Harry Potter? Get off my profile right now!
