My self-summary
I've just signed up for this, just testing the waters for now. Hopefully I'll update this better when I get a better sense of what people write in these things, haha.

I am curious, nerdy, and delightful
What I’m doing with my life
Currently trying to figure out what's going on in my future. Social work degree? Maybe. Something tells me I should take some time off and see what's out there before I make a big committment like that, and getting out there socially is a big part of that. Basically, I'm ready to have some fun and make some intereting memories/mistakes.

I'm a pretty shy person, leaning towards hermit at times. More of a pub girl than a club girl, you could say. Seeing me dance in public means one of the following has occured: a) brain transplant, b) high degree of intoxication or c) get a scarf because hell has frozen over.
I’m really good at
Procrastinating. If it were an Olympic Sport I'd win the first gold medal, for sure. One of these days I'm going to totally screw myself over school-wise but I keep dodging the bullet, amazingly.

I'm constantly in pursuit of new things to listen to, and crafting the perfect playlist for everyday activities like cleaning, driving, and public transit.
Six things I could never do without
(besides friends and family, of course)
my iPod
Diet Dr Pepper
comfortable shoes (I only rarely suffer for fashion)
mini altoids
Giants baseball
and something to read.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Things I could have done differently, what resume rewriting I should probably be doing instead of whatever I'm doing at the time, what I could do to better understand the people and world around me. Kittens. Corgis.
On a typical Friday night I am
Taking it easy with a few close friends, nothing too crazy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I aspire to be on Jeopardy some day (Nerd!). I'm basically a collector of totally useless knowledge, like the capital of Liechtenstein (which is, incidentally, Vaduz). You want me on your team for any sort of trivia game.
More private: Only recently have I stopped biting my nails. Thank you, awful childhood habits.
You should message me if
You made it this far! Why the hell not?
