My self-summary
About me: I grew up in California, finished school in Indiana, and just moved to Minnie for work. I am trying to love every minute of life and explore the things around me because I have learned how precious life is and how little time we may have to appreciate it.

I'm excited to learn and do good. I hunger to be meaningful.
What I’m doing with my life
I moved to Minneapolis in mid-June for work. I work in marketing. I have a smart phone and I know how to use it. Note: if this offends you, you may not appreciate my company.

I like exploring. I like adventures. I like living life to the fullest. I am a generally positive person. I'm happy to enjoy the company of similar people.

I've been told I have a good heart and an old soul. I'm almost always up for a coffee or a walk.
I’m really good at
Being culturally unaware and musically handicapped.

(I don't purposely "not know" this stuff. I apologize in advance if I am oblivious to whatever reference you make. I have a horrible memory. On top of that, some stuff I just don't know because I didn't grow up with it.)

No, but seriously - I'm pretty handy (recently I replaced my headliner - kudos to you if you know what that is) and I have a talent for finding great deals. Also, I like to research (mostly consumer purchases) online, and I'm pretty good with numbers.
The first things people usually notice about me
Personality-wise, I come off as shy (or awkward - you choose the appropriate adjective). In appearance, I think many notice my lack of make-up and feminine attire - I prefer jeans and a t-shirt to a dress and lipstick any day.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - I enjoy the classics, but have a hard time recalling names - another thing I'm good at. Recently, I finished reading "The Omnivore's Dilemma," just after Sinclair's "The Jungle." (Which, as a side note, is making me reconsider vegetarianism for the umpteenth time in my life despite my love of meat.) I just started Tipping Point and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

Movies - Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. He loves me, He loves me not. Interesting psychological movies, but also brainless comedy and romance, like all girls. Most recent movies that I enjoyed on Netflix - Rango and From Prada to Nada. On the plane here, I watched Guilt Trip, part of Argo, Identity Theif, and Life of Pi. Now I just have to finish Argo...

Music - I'm musically challenged. I had a guitar but I don't know how to play. I listen to just about anything. I like to sing, but I sound awful. I also can't remember names to save my life, so I may know a song but not the name of the artist or track.

Food - I love food and I often experiment cooking new dishes or trying various foods. One of my favorite things to do when I travel is to enjoy massive quantities of the local cuisine - including street food. Most recently, I purchased a soy milk maker and have been drinking fresh milk daily and making soy/oatmeal and soy/coconut cookies. I am willing to try just about any food once. Newest food tasted: trifle and spiced watermelon. Nom nom nom.
The six things I could never do without
I want to learn to do without "things." I don't get along with those who define themselves by what they own

I prefer my family, friends, and pets. Devices that help me stay in touch with the former are also acceptable. :)

I have realized recently that I can't live without music/dancing and, consequently, a willing dance partner. Apply here if you are said person. This also applies to travel.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- how to lead a meaningful life.
- how to maintain a good relationship with my family.
- where I will travel next.
- what I will do professionally to achieve the above.
On a typical Friday night I am
- dancing
- exploring
- watching a movie
- hosting/attending tea/dinner/snack/movie nights
- eating yummy food! :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sometimes have a hard time staying still (and get bored easily). Some people define this as ADHD, but I think it's simply a symptom of the constant stimuli that we get in this awesome age of technology.
You should message me if
- your interest is sincere and your message isn't generic. (Consider: If the message works for everyone, what makes a unique individual want to respond?)
- you want to chat, grab a coffee/bite, go dancing, or find an adventure.
- you can use their, there, and they're properly. I was an English teacher ... :)
