My self-summary
I love trying new things - from new restaurants to getting out in the sunshine for whitewater rafting to visiting new countries. Closer to home, I love movies and books and hanging out with my dogs.

I grew up in Atlanta and stayed here to be near my family, but I love to travel. A few years ago, I took a month off work and visited New Zealand and Australia, and it was the best time of my life. Last year it was Switzerland, not sure where I'll go this year yet. I want to see as much of the world as I can. There's a lot of the US I would like to visit too and hope to eventually take a long road-trip to see a bunch of our sights.

I guess that's a good start for a summary! I'm looking for someone intelligent and funny - I love to laugh and to make my partner laugh. I am looking for a partner, but also for friends - most of my college friends have moved away recently and it's hard to find people who like to read, go to movies, and play board games.
What I’m doing with my life
I work as an industrial engineer. It's pretty interesting and I enjoy it most of the time. I'm trying to figure out what's next.
I’m really good at
Solving problems, being funny when a little drunk, watching TV, and eating burgers.
The first things people usually notice about me
I can be pretty quiet at first, but will open up after I get to know people. I'm not a person who likes to talk just to fill silence.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read all kinds of books. My recent favorite is the Wool series - I couldn't put it down! I really enjoy post apocalyptic fiction and will even read terrible books if the world ends in them (except for the Left Behind series, I've drawn the line there!). Favorite books include Watership Down, The Handmaid's Tale, World War Z, Lord of the Rings, The Stand, and some chick lit I won't bore you with.

I love all kinds of movies too and go to the theater a lot. I like pretty much anything. I loved Mad Max and Arrival. Some favorites include 28 Days Later, Lord of the Rings, Gladiator, Fever Pitch, and Sliding Doors. Pretty much anything but horror/torture-porn is cool with me.

For TV shows, I enjoy Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead, plus Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and Modern Family. I really loved Daredevil and I'm not sure Netflix is capable of bad TV. Some old favorites are Firefly and Battlestar Galactica.

I mostly listen to 98.9 and 105.7 (I really miss DaveFM) - so modern rock and alternative (plus NPR). My iPod is stuck in the 90s and has lots of old favorites like Counting Crows, Weezer, and Toad the Wet Sprocket, but I have some new stuff too like The Killers, Ben Folds, and Andrew Bird.
Six things I could never do without
My dogs
My living room - no place better to unwind
Movie theaters - I still love going like I did when I was a little kid
The Internet - how did we get by without it?
My family
My car - gives me independence and I enjoy driving
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where to travel next!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a lot of interests, but I'm kind of a geeky girl. I like to read almost anything but I have a soft spot for science fiction. I've been to Comic-Con a few times and also really enjoy DragonCon. See my favorite books and movies for more on that. I also like video games and I hope the new Nintendo will be fun. I will play anything with Zelda and I loved Portal.
