My self-summary
Vivacious is a word that I commonly use to describe myself. Mostly because of that damn game where you use an adjective that starts with the first letter of your name is really hard for anyone who's name starts with a V. Anyways back to me...

I'm 28 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.

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. When I was in grad school I loved visiting lots of the baseball stadiums in the midwest.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
I just received my law degree and master of social work in a JD/MSW program at the University of Iowa.

Passed the bar and now I am making ends meet while I wait to be full licensed and get a full time job.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh even if it is at my own expense. I'm also a fantastic wingman. I can probably get anyone laid (even if I have to do it myself ;) ). See I told you I was funny.

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.
The first things people usually notice about me
To keep it real, probably how loud I am.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm just going to be honest and say I don't like watching movies. I'll do it if I really like the person but I will never be the one to say "Hey let's go to a movie!". Sorry I know it makes me weird.
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 whom are underage :/
The six things I could never do without
My SF Giants pillow pet (I am a renter so it's the closest thing I will have to a pet for awhile). Edited to add he was on TV when I went to the Cubs game and had Pablo "The Panda" Sandoval hug him!
Turkey pepperoni (shit is delicious).

That is all I can think of for now.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Lately I've begun to think less about the future and just enjoy my incredible time here on earth. Living in the moment has been one of the best things I've learned over the last few years.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out and about. Either having drinks with friends or on a quick weekend getaway. As I've gotten older I've been getting more into curling up on the couch and drinking wine as well.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My longest relationship was 8 months and it ended in 2007. Can't hold me down!
I love the taste of soap.
I use Old Spice deodorant.
You should message me if
You find me as hilarious as I find myself. You can handle me relentlessly teasing you as my way of flirting. You care about service and volunteerism.
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.
