My self-summary
I'm currently a tax accountant at a public accounting firm and sitting for the CPA exam. INTJ/borderline ISTJ. When my mind needs a break and the weather permits I work on my house's much-needed landscaping; it had a grand total of three trees and five bushes when I moved in, and there's now seven trees and....I'm not going to start counting the smaller plants. But I do have - a shrubbery!

(side note: if you don't get the shrubbery reference, leave now)

I'm not originally from Oklahoma, or really anywhere (federal government brat). I also don't agree with most of the typical Oklahoma views on things, nor am I country or redneck. Accept and embrace it. If you're ultraconservative, particularly if you think homosexuality is a sin and gays should burn, we won't get along.
What I’m doing with my life
Taking the CPA exam and being a kick-ass accountant. Constantly learning, because it's a driving force in my life. I'm an information sponge, even if there's a significant portion that's usually pretty useless.
I’m really good at
Balancing my debits and credits, violating labels people try to use for me (my favorite movies and music lists are excellent examples of what I mean), and having an escape plan in case of a zombie outbreak.

Also, cooking, kayaking, hiking, and learning.
The first things people usually notice about me
At 6'3", that I'm tall. After that, probably that I'm quiet. Not so much shy as I listen more than I talk. More Don Draper than Harry Crane, if you watch Mad Men.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I really enjoy reading, but with going back to school for the last three years I haven't had much time to do any. Movies and a handful of TV shows have been filling my craving for fiction instead, since there's less of a time commitment. Plus when I start reading I lose track of time.

Six things I could never do without
Beyond the essentials for life:

My dog.

My favorite music.

A toothbrush and toothpaste. I hate morning breath.

Learning. Just because I'm burnt out on the classroom setting doesn't mean I am sick of acquiring knowledge.

Travel. I've visited Atlanta, Charlotte, NYC, and New Mexico in the last few years. The British Isles and/or France may be the next major non-family-oriented trip up next, I'm undecided.

In case of zombies, my weapons.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where should I go on my next vacation? New Mexico was in July 2013, Costa Rica was in 2012, a three-city trip in 9 days (Atlanta, Charlotte, NYC) was in 2011, the year before was another NYC trip. I do love that city. Next up: New Mexico and Arizona at Thanksgiving.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing at home. Tobacco smoke being a trigger for allergy migraines makes it difficult to go out to most places in OKC, and by the time Friday comes I usually abhor the concept of being in close proximity to large groups of humans.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I care more about my dog than I do about most people. Sorry, but it's true. She loves me unconditionally and doesn't create massive headaches, and she's smarter than a lot of hairless apes. Though there are some actual apes that are smarter than a segment of the hairless ape population...Idiocracy is more fact than fiction, unfortunately.

Also, I love geeks and nerds. Intelligence is a huge turn on for me. Yes, I'm sapiosexual.
You should message me if
If you like smart guys. A Venn Diagram of Women Who Like Men To Be Unintelligent and Women I Really Don't Want to Date...would be a circle.

You're intelligent and can hold your own in conversation. At the very least you should be able to form complete sentences and u dnt tlk lyk dis, 4 sho. If I have to spend time deciphering a message it's more likely that I'll delete it instead of putting out the effort. Or to use the Venn diagram analogy, it would be Women Who Are Intelligent and Women I Want to Date.

You're accepting of homosexuality and don't believe it's a sin. You believe everyone should have the right to be happy and themselves. My tolerance for homophobia/LGBT discrimination is about as close to zero as you can get; the only reason it even registers is societal norms won't allow me to react the way I'd like to when I am confronted with it.

You're ready for the zombie apocalypse. The dead will rise! Go pick up the Zombie Survival Guide.

Also, do not message me if you have no intention of meeting up. Life is short, time is precious, and I have little patience for being lead on and then canceled on at the last minute. If you change your mind after making plans, be an adult and say so instead of dragging it out. That'll go over so much better with anyone, not just me.
The two of us
