My self-summary
I guess I'll start with the fact that I'm new to Portland! I arrived in this beautiful place on August 20th, 2013, and so far, I really like it here. This is the last question I answered b/c the other questions weren't quite as open-ended.

Hmm, I'm a talker. I am a curious bird. I love learning new things. I love traveling and seeing the world. I love making new friends. I enjoy listening to others and hearing their stories. I love story time. I love women. I like going to museums. I like the zoo. I am historically a gym rat (getting back into it) and have made some great friends there! My family is uber important to me. I have 2 brothers, a half-sister, and 2 half-brothers. I'm the oldest. I'm responsible. I'm a dreamer. I love life and I love to laugh. I'm incredibly loyal and would do anything for any of my friends. I make friends easily. I'm random. I like people watching. I love tattoos and have two...I'm getting two more in August! I think a good pedicure is almost as good as sex. I drive fast and I love cars. I grew up in Irving, Texas (a suburb of Dallas). I went to Baylor. I have a BBA in Accounting. I'd love to be living in England within 10 years...hey, it's nice to dream! I like to play pool. I'm feisty. I love surprising friends with little gifts (nothing extravagant or expensive...just thoughtful little tokens). I LOVE postcards!! I want to take a photography class again...especially now that I have a decent camera.

I could say much more, but my hand is tired from typing so if ya wanna know more, feel free to drop me a line. :-)

I am spontaneous, loyal, and friendly
What I’m doing with my life
This could be a potentially loaded I'll answer it as directly as possible.

I am a Sr. Accountant for a corporation in downtown Portland in the Enterprise Intercompany department. I am a global process owner for an area of the financial close and I spend a great deal of my time attempting to get people all over the world do things correctly. If you really want to know more about what I do daily to fund my life, just ask.

I am attempting to get back into a gym routine. I used to go to the gym regularly...and by regularly I mean anywhere from 5 to 9 times a week...some days I used to go twice a day. I let myself go when I got into my last relationship ( as you can tell from my I'm trying to get back to where I used to be physically speaking.

I'm making new friends and expanding my social circle. :-)

I am singing! I'm a member of the Portland Lesbian Choir, which I've found to be very fulfilling.

I'd also like to give back to the community by doing volunteer things...from 5ks to Habitat home builds. I did them back home and enjoyed them immensely!

Ah yes, I'm a gamer...well used to be anyway. I am not obsessed with gaming consoles (I own a Wii, Xbox 360, and a PS2). I do however enjoy World of Warcraft and even though I haven't played in a while, it holds a special place in my heart.
I’m really good at
well, I don't like to brag, but...

- driving fast (though not recklessly - although my Texas definition of fast is quite different from the Oregon one!)
- getting dressed and ready to leave the house in less than 10 mins
- making people smile with my silly remarks or jokes
- putt-putt (or losing the game of putt-putt)
- getting along with kids (I believe I'm a big kid...but I know how to be serious too)
- putting people at ease
- planning vacations
- keeping in touch with friends and making an effort
- cheering people on

I guess that's all for now, lol
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes or my smile I think...I've heard a few times that I'm always smiling and bubbly from people (though I must warn you this isn't always the case, but I do love to smile and laugh...keeps me young!)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Oiy, I looove reading...I don't do it very often b/c I also love being out and about, but a few of my faves are:
- Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe
- Huck Finn
- Grapes of Wrath
- 1984
- Tipping the Velvet
Also just about any lesbian novel, the Twilight series, and anything Sherlock Holmes

Movies: I love bff in Texas and I used to go to one a week, so I've seen quite a few, but there are still so many to see. I like all kinds of movies too, from romantic comedies to horror. I will list 5 of my all-time faves here:
- The Help
- Gone in 60 Seconds
- Field of Dreams
- The Blindside
- Imagine Me & You

Music: My life would be non-existent without music. It floats my boat and soothes my soul. I like just about every kind tastes are very eclectic...from jazz to rap to rock to classical. I'll list a few of my recent faves here:
- Scissor Sisters (this band is fucking awesomesauce fun so if you've never heard them, give em a'll make you wanna dance)
- The lady stylings of Lana Del Ray, Lorde, and of course Florence and the Machine
- The Beatles (need I say more? and if you don't like them at least a little, I'm fairly certain we won't be good friends)
- Caedmon's Call (it's a Christian band, but their sound is awesome and I think their songs can relate to anyone)
- Deathcab (and by default, The Postal Service)
- Norah Jones (she's a Texas girl and she can play a piano and her voice is angelic)
- Sarah McLachlan (pure awesomeness)
- Melissa Etheridge (puts on a great show live and her music is the shiz!)

Food: Well, I'm a southern girl, so I love my food, lol. I'd have to say my fave foods are fruits though. If I ever met a girl that made an incredible fruit salad, I'd follow her to the ends of the world, lol....I'm not kidding xD
The six things I could never do without
1. Gum
2. The interwebs
3. Music
4. Transportation
5. Relationships/Interraction with others
6. My cell phone

These are in random order, btw.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
life, love, and the pursuit of happiness. No really, I think about:

Why I'm attracted to the people I am
I ponder my brother's actions (since I'm the oldest, I worry about their life decisions sometimes)
What I want to be doing in 10 years and how to get there
Why people do cruel things
What makes people tick
How to bring a smile to someone's face
My next vacation
And any other random thing that crosses my mind...
On a typical Friday night I am
With my gay the gym, their house, or out somewhere. They moved here from Texas almost a year before me and they are family to me, so I love spending time with them. If I'm not out with them or at their house, since I haven't made a ton of friends here yet, I'm working.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
o.O I'm an open book, so if I haven't said it here yet, if we hang out and become friends I'm sure you'll hear it at some point.
You should message me if
You are awesomesauce!
You like new friends
You are quirky
You aren't grouchy
You love to laugh
You are random
You want an activity buddy
