My self-summary
Hello! I am a 34 year old living in the great city of Baltimore, currently working towards my masters at the University of Baltimore. I was born and raised in Blacksburg, VA, but have been in this area since 2007.

I love people, and really enjoy learning all I can from everyone I meet. I am a huge fan of music--I have somewhere over a thousand CDs (remember CDs?) and several hundred vinyl albums, plus a boatload (that's the official term) of digital music. I also enjoy writing, reading, museums, exploring new areas, video games, and spending time with friends and family. I also love the Orioles and watch every game I can.

I'm finally implementing a long in the making fitness plan, getting to the gym 4-5 days a week. Would love to do more with other people, as well.

I'm a positivist by nature--I always try to look for the best in people, and I believe that people are generally good, and will head towards positive growth when given the right circumstances and opportunities.

Ideally, I'd like to find someone to settle down with, although I know that takes time. So ultimately I am looking for something long-term, but friends are always welcome.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a graduate student at the University of Baltimore, working towards my masters in Clinical Counseling. Also do the whole internship thing.
I’m really good at
--Knowing really random bits of trivia
--Cheering people up and making people laugh
--Starting sentences with "There was a study that found…"
The first things people usually notice about me
Most likely how tall I am. I get a lot of comments on that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: My favorite book is "The Perks of Being A Wallflower." I get something new out of it every time I read it. I read a lot of nonfiction, especially relating to psychology, sociology, history and religion. My favorite author is Anne Lamott, and I also enjoy Willa Cather, David Eddings, Mark Twain, Laura Lippman, Gertrude Stein and Jules Verne. I'm usually reading about six books at once.
TV: Mostly I just watch Orioles games, but I am also a big fan of Conan O'Brien. I don't actually have cable, but I watch shows on Netflix. I'm a sucker for anything superhero related (Arrow, The Flash, Daredevil, Gotham, etc.)
Movies: Anything directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, The Batman Trilogy with Christian Bale, other superhero movies
Music: Some favorite artists at the moment are Greg Laswell, Yoko Ono, Tiger Army, John Lennon, Alkaline Trio, Against Me!, Public Enemy, Dan Andriano in the Emergency Room, Nellie McKay, Passenger, Morrissey, Blondie, Ani DiFranco, Sam Phillips, Derek Webb, Tom Petty, Aimee Mann, Anti-Flag, David Ramirez, The National, Dr. Dog, The Falls, etc.

If it's melancholy singer-songwriter music, I'm probably gonna love it.
The six things I could never do without
--Family & Friends (I'm combining them so I get one more thing)
--Paper and Pen (Again combining--I'm tricky like that)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
--Really weird things...examples include "Why do we condense the phrase "will not" to "won't" and not "willn't" and "Why are they always pairs of there such a thing as a single scissor?"
--How I can help make the world a little bit better
On a typical Friday night I am
Most likely either hanging out with a friend or two, or having a quiet night at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
--I one day hope to have a "Lego room" in my house, where I can set up all the Lego sets I had when I was younger, as well as new ones I may purchase.
--When I was a kid I created a super hero team consisting of Corny Man, Hot Dog Man, and Corn Cob. I'm not even joking.
You should message me if
You're a nice/friendly person who has varied interests and enjoys talking about a wide variety of subjects, and doesn't mind a conversation veering off in a totally random direction.
