My self-summary
I am an animal rights activist and I love photography, graphic design, and playing the piano. I am also a gamer and can get down and dirty with the best of them. I have many aspirations and I plan to reach every single one. I am proud of my accomplishments in life thus far, but I have much left to do. I enjoy simplicity and appreciate complexity. I love learning; knowledge is a drug. I long to travel the world. There is more to see and do than is possible in one lifetime, but I hope to get damn near close. I teach nursing students. INTJ.

Under My Details, it says my "ethnicity" is white. Well, technically, white is not an ethnicity, it is a race. My ethnicity is Dutch, German, Swedish, Danish, English, and Norwegian. Yes, I am a mutt.

I am introverted, imaginative, and inquisitive.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a Registered Nurse. I have a BA in English and worked as a high school teacher for my first professional job. I later decided to enter the healthcare field and earned a BSN and Master of Public Health. I have experience in Neonatal ICU, school nursing, and nursing education. I currently work as a nurse educator and am studying in a Doctorate of Nursing program with a focus on becoming a Nurse Practitioner.
I’m really good at
Video games! =P And listening. :)
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes or my hair. My hair is curly and some days it can be pretty wild. My eyes are blue-green. I tend to get a lot of nice compliments. :)

Some Favorite Quotes:

-Ash (Ian Holm), Alien
Six things I could never do without
1) my family
2) my friends
3) my pets
4) school
5) video games
6) chocolate
I spend a lot of time thinking about
1) My future as a nurse! I will have a lot of options and I am trying to decide where I would like to ultimately end up.

2) My future relationship(s). I hope to meet someone to have a long-term relationship with, but it has to start somewhere and you can't force love. Some might end in friendship and that is okay. Friends are always good, too. :) Ideally, I would like to become good friends with someone where that bond turns into a romantic relationship. Having friendship as the base to romance is always a wonderful thing.
On a typical Friday night I am
I like to go out to low-key places once in a while to enjoy some drinks and a little dancing, but with my current nursing schedule, I find myself needing some nice R&R at home with some good company, popcorn, and a movie. :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to play FarmVille... ack! Sad confession of a gamer. Add to that CityVille, Frontierville, and Treasure Isle. I know, I know!
You should message me if
You like smart (but not egotistic) girls who seem shy/reserved at first, but have a very affectionate & talkative side waiting to be discovered. :)
