My self-summary
Well, since there's more to say than I could possibly fit in this little text box, I'll just give you a sampling of random facts:

I like to go to restaurants, bars, bookstores and see live music, but I also like to get out of the city and into nature for walks, hikes, and bike rides. Sea kyaking?! I'm a soccer fan and I love new experiences as long as they don't involve mortal danger.

I like camping and travel and learning -- doing these are major goals of mine for the next couple of years. I am definitely looking for someone who has goals as well, either similar to mine or with his own spin. Direction is good -- the goal doesn't have to be set in stone.

I like a lie-in as much as the next girl, but I like to live an active lifestyle too. I just got a bike recently and I've been having a pretty good time riding around on it.

Netflix and I have a pretty solid relationship and I love all kinds of movies, both highbrow and not. I'm an admitted Joss Whedon/Buffy/Firefly fanatic and would love to browse through Amoeba with you, especially for indie music, but I'm pretty open to new/other genres.

I'm fun and funny and I'm usually a happy girl. Ultimately I'm looking for a partner and a best friend, someone who definitely has their own thing going on but who wants to share it all with me. But friends are good things too!

I am keen, goofy, and hopeful
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a freelance editor by trade and I'm almost finished with my Masters of Science in Nutrition. I am interested in food, both medicinally and in terms of its, well, deliciousness. I'm a foodie, and I love to try new restaurants! When you put these two things together with my need for social time and my love of sleep, you'll deduce that I can be a pretty busy girl at times. But you know what? I wouldn't have it any other way...
I’m really good at
Editing, writing, telling stories, being supportive to friends, sarcasm, being loyal as the day is long, singing songs in the shower, remembering useless details.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes and my goofiness. Usually in that order.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books -- too many to mention, but I love Iris Murdoch, Robertson Davies, Vladimir Nabokov, Paul Auster, Jane Austen, EM Forster.

Favorite movies -- Out of Africa, Rushmore, Bottle Rocket, Out of Sight, Mansfield Park, Room With a View, Howards End, Shaun of the Dead, Charade, Serenity, LOTR, Pride and Predjudice, Hot Fuzz, She's the Man, Dead Man, many more.

The six things I could never do without
something to read
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Nutrition! I'm finishing up a master's degree in the subject and it's one that has always fascinated me. However, I'd describe myself as much closer to foodie than food policewoman on the nutritionist continuum. I think that food is a fascinating subject from many standpoints: culturally, medically, and socially!
On a typical Friday night I am
Fridays I'm often resting, watching movies, and/or making plans for the rest of my week. I love going to restaurants or movies or bars, but Wednesdays and Thursdays seem like slightly better days for these things. I'm not immovable on this point, but that's been my trend lately.
You should message me if
You like to stay in and listen to music/watch movies/tv and talk (or not talk)

You like to get out for road trips or hikes or camping

You like to try new restaurants, both of the fancy and the hole in the wall variety

You're a thinker and a communicator. You're affectionate and sweet.

Goofiness is a plus!
