My self-summary
I like to think of myself as a student of life; coincidentally, I just finished formal schooling (funny how that works out). I'm an Electrical Engineer with a Philosophy minor - and I'm not as snooty as that sounds (right now, I make circuit boards). I like the outdoors: more climbing, hiking, and canoeing than skiing or other snow sports; I'm less fond of being cold.

I'm a reader. I am practical-minded, and I like to be precise; I guess that's the engineer side showing through. I think the Oxford comma is a necessity, and I don't really feel like it's been twenty-four years.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm just starting a new job in a new state - been here a couple months, and still not sure quite what's expected of me (it's a new position, so it's not all me - a relief to know!).

Eventually, I'd like to teach: nothing younger than high school, and probably something like a Waldorf or Montesorri style. It's more organic, allows flexibility, and I've always been told I approach things from a different perspective - I want to allow my students to have that same freedom. - ...Actually, I've recently been told by a few teachers I respect very much that they think I'd do well with small children. So that's something to think about.
I’m really good at
I enjoy cooking. I'm not as adventurous in the culinary arts as I'd like, mostly because I haven't been cooking that long, and I have to eat my own creations.
Procrastinating, though that's not really something I should brag about (oops! ^_^).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - I tend toward fantasy. I love novels that are more psychological in nature, with a lot of character development. Examples: Jim Butcher's Codex Alera, most things by Piers Anthony and Robert Heinlein, almost everything by Terry Pratchett, and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time.

Movies - I'll watch most things once except for horror, which I refuse to see. If I'm picking, I'll probably choose something with at least a splash of humor and a upbeat attitude (though I'm often in the mood for a heavy dose of action as well), like Despicable Me, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, The Bucket List, Howl's Moving Castle.

Music - A little bit here and there. I like Santana, Jimmy Buffet, the Bare Naked Ladies, Sister Hazel, Incubus, Sting, and Enya's great to fall asleep to. I'm not big into most country or rap, but there really aren't very many songs that I dislike enough that I'd change someone else's radio.

Food - I love spicy food; not hot-spicy, but full-flavored. Sprinkle some tarragon, add some cumin! Bland is alright for comfort foods - but if I'm hungry, I usually want something with taste.
Six things I could never do without
Glasses (20/350 in my good eye! >_< )

Books!! I love to read - enough so that I used to get surprised looks from teachers, etc. when I *wasn't* reading.

Alarm clocks (I hate mornings)

Something in my hands! I fidget, and having something to do (even I'm not actually holding anything) helps me not get nervous.

My extensive family - not that I want to spend every day with them, but knowing they're present if I need help is a warm fuzzy.

Hmmm #6.....more books!! XD mwahahaha!!
On a typical Friday night I am
Recently, I've been all over the place. I've been out visiting family, playing games with a group of friends, reading at home, or even working and trying to bang out something over the weekend when we've got a deadline. I don't really go "out" by myself, but I'm happy to go with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I seriously consider pretty much every question I find - even those that are supposed to be hypothetical. So far, I've always decided in favor of that first gut feeling, but I did give it serious thought.
