My self-summary
***Not to sound desperate, but I'm bored to tears and don't know a soul. So if you're up for a no pressure drink, you could make my day!***

I pretty much just got into town. I've spend the last three years of my life in Philly going to law school. I'm relatively new to the area, and want to explore more of what the north bay has to offer.

Currently I'm staying with extended family, working full time, and studying for the bar. I'll start apartment hunting once things settle down for me. Anyway...

I know it's often said, but how the hell does someone actually summarize his or herself? I feel like I'm being asked to give my elevator pitch to would-be dates. That's overrated—so here are some random tidbits (I feel like you can only really get to know someone by talking to them anyway):

I've wanted to be a lawyer since 8th grade.

I umpire.

I believe in listening, empathy, and action.

I believe there are really only two things in life that I can control: my attitude and my effort.

I am absolutely an unabashed nerd.

While I am most curious about all things law/politics/philosophy, I like know a little about a lot. So whatever your passion is, I'll probably dig it too.

I'm super into typography.

After three years of law school, I love that I'm able to read fiction again.

I had brain surgery in 7th grade. (Chiari malformation).

Despite multiple trips to Disney World/Land, I've never met Mickey (sneaky bastard).

I have a dry, dark, quirky, and occasionally juvenile sense of humor.

I enjoy schadenfreude.

Sometimes I find myself chuckling at things that no one else finds entertaining.

I'm tired of the IPA craze... I get it... it has hops. Cool story. I like IPAs too, but sometimes it's nice to have something a bit more complex.

I know why it's called an IPA.

As much as I enjoy craft beer/microbrews, I enjoy Miller High Life and PBR just as much.

I believe in loyalty, integrity, and trust.

I love being outdoors.

I miss city life.

I love music, movies, and art.

I loathe the question: "What do you do for fun?"

I don't do online dating; I do online introductions.

I have ADHD—predominately inattentive type.

I believe in the right to choose and marriage equality.

I believe in being both chivalrous and a feminist.

I'm attracted to strong, intelligent, and independent women.

I am utterly incapable of taking a flattering selfie (or pictures in general).

For me, a good conversation is the greatest aphrodisiac.

This should be enough fodder to get us started, yeah?
What I’m doing with my life
Studying for the Bar.
I’m really good at
Lawyer stuff. Empathy. Always wanting to do better. Procrastinating. Finding something to be passionate about. Eating out. Cooking. Reading, writing, and arithmetic.
The first things people usually notice about me
Blue eyes, dry humor, that I'm breathing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Game of Thrones, Beyond Good an Evil, The Stranger, To Kill a Mocking Bird, The Federalist Papers... others.

Movies: The Big Lebowski... I have a hard time picking others beyond that.

Shows: Arrested Development, Friends, How I Met Your Mother, The West Wing, Battlestar Galactica, Seinfeld, It's Always Sunny, Scandal, Dr. Who, House of Cards, Veep, House of Lies... is Netflix an acceptable answer?

Music: Does NPR count as music? Radiohead, The Tallest Man on Earth, Iron & Wine, Arcade Fire, Al Green, The Avett Brothers, The Cars, The Counting Crows, Daftpunk, Death Cab for Cutie, Florence + the Machine, Girl Talk, Grace Potter, Jay-Z, Kanye, Queen, The Postal Service, Pixies, Okkervil River, Nirvana, The New Pornographers, Matt & Kim, The Lumineers, and Lana Del Ray (that's a good start, right?)
Six things I could never do without
Maslow's hierarchy of needs.
My contacts.
Everything else seems kind of superflous... but I kind of like my cell phone.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why people are so afraid to meet in person...after all, you'll show your ID to a complete stranger—so what's the harm in a public meeting with me? (I have passed a Moral Character test by the state bar. This means I've not had any past conduct which would indicate I lack moral character; also, unlike the guy checking your ID, I'll buy you a drink.
On a typical Friday night I am
...hoping to meet up with you?

At this point, I'm new to the area, so there is no typical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't like scary movies and I don't eat anything that came from a body of water. Don't worry, I don't mind ordering in something other than sushi so you can have yours!

I've got a couple better ones, but they have to be shared person to person.
You should message me if
you're a intelligent, active, adventurous woman, and you'd actually be up for meeting in the near future! Your idea of a first date doesn't involve résumé swapping!

Also, if your "you should message me if" section isn't a long tirade of reasons why a person shouldn't message you, then you should message me! I'm starting a club.

GGG is always a plus too.
The two of us
