I'm 27 and haven't been in a serious relationship since I was 18. Does that make me worry that I won't ever find someone? Sometimes. Mostly though I am happy and proud of the things that I have done in my life. I love all of the places that life has taken me and I am almost sure had I met someone earlier in life I wouldn't be where I am right now. Life is quite fantastic despite the stress that grad school tends to bring.
I am a passionate person which is both a good and a bad thing. I am a complete slob and if you ever see my room clean give it two days. I'm fiercely independent but also often needy for attention. I'm loud and usually opinionated but the amount of empathy I have for the world overtakes me at some of the most random times. I'm also a terrible speller. I sometimes have a problem with story topping, I don't mean to but I usually have a similar but cooler story :). I hate when people use ellipse incorrectly or just inappropriate punctuation in general (though I have not quite mastered the comma).
I'm always down for a weekend adventure and I seriously become joyful when I find awesome deals on websites like Priceline and Groupon. I'm also on a mission to visit all of the midwest baseball parks before I graduate. Combining my love of baseball with affordable travel just makes me giddy.
To sum it up I am a pretty wacky individual. My friends think I am great and I believe I have a lot to offer someone, that someone, when I find them.
I'm also earning my Masters of Social Work while in law school. If everything goes as planned I'll be getting both degrees in 2016!
I'm also really great at planning things. I am the go to friend to plan weekend outings and I never let my friends down. I'm a strong advocate in every aspect of my life.
I'm also good at being self aware. I'm sometimes painfully honest but I think hiding the truth only just wastes everyone's time, one of my biggest pet peeves by the way.
My taste in music is varied and usually dictated by my mood. Ke$ha gets me pumped to go out and Mumford and Sons sings me to sleep. For some reason Adele's "Someone Like You" gets me pumped sometimes.
My all time favorite band is Dashboard Confessional. I no longer am an emo kid but I still love his vocals and I am really into Chris Carrabbas new band Twin Forks.
My favorite book since the age of 12 has been Stargirl, I actually have a small tattoo of the little stick figure that is on the cover of it.
I'll also add that I enjoy sports a lot. I have a bit of an obsessive problem when I get interested in a sport. Something somewhat obscure pulls me in but then i become a huge fan. SF Giants for instance; I fell in love with Brian Wilson and then became obsessed with the Giants even after he left (I have had my own mlb.tv account for three years now). 49ers while always a fan from back when I watched them in spring training camp at UOP having Kaepernick be from the 209 made me even more pumped about them. Then there is womens gymnastics, actually no clue i have always loved them. I do feel somewhat weird for following a bunch of Team USA on Instagram who are underage :/
Turkey pepperoni (shit is delicious).
That is all I can think of for now.
I love the taste of soap.
I use Old Spice deodorant.
Do not message me saying "What's up". If you read my profile and cannot think of a clever way to engage with me then we would never have worked out. Although I will say from experience this is hard but at a minimum you should be able to personalize an initial message in some way.
I'd also like to add that I genuinely feel bad when someone writes me a nice message and I ignore it because I am not interested.
