My self-summary
1. I'm an artist, and therefore stubbornly lonely.
2. I have lived in 5 U.S. states.
3. I work, like, a lot. I have a full time job and work freelance outside of that.
4. I have a ridiculously sweet dog and a bizarrely confident cat. I have never lived without pets.
5. I am addicted to playing in the dirt.
6. I am equal parts completely dependable and horrifically irresponsible.
7. I am empathetic to a fault.
8. I am very spontaneous and up for new adventures - you will never hear me say the words, "I'm scared to do that."
9. I'm really serious about not being too serious.
What I’m doing with my life
I work for a performing arts organization in town, and write and perform as much as I have the energy for on nights and weekends. I own a house in South Philly, which is taking up a lot of my time now - lots of improvements to be made! I came to the Philly area for grad school, and was lucky enough to find a home here. I love my neighborhood and have a really supporting network of friends. I hope one day that I'll be able to share my wonderful life with someone wonderful.
I’m really good at
I write pretty well. I make a mean breakfast.

I'm a very empathetic person, and I think I do a good job of making the people I meet feel special.
The first things people usually notice about me
My easy demeanor, my smile, my ability to make you feel comfortable. I have short hair now, too - no surprises.

I love food. Food is my favorite food.
The six things I could never do without
A book, cold beer, something to write with, something to write on, someone to talk to, a place to be alone
I spend a lot of time thinking about
When the apocalypse, zombie or otherwise, might occur.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably a play followed by drinks with friends. Or falling asleep by midnight with my dog in front of the television.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I will deny it to the day I die, but the truth is I'm a deeply competitive person.
You should message me if
You don't read the words "I want to have fun!" and interpret them as "I want to have sex with a bunch of strangers from the internet!"

Also, I know this isn't like a lot of girls on here, but I think meeting someone from OkC who seems interesting as soon as possible is to best way to remove the internet-weirdness from the situation. So let me know if you're actually interested in grabbing a drink/coffee! A real conversation would be great!
