I'm committed to making the world a better place, and want to work on gender-based violence issues. I meet deadlines, I run on time, and I take my responsibilities seriously. I also love to laugh, be ridiculous, and generally have a really positive outlook on life. I love to dance (even though I'm not any good at it) I tend to chair dance when working at a desk. I don't like loud bars generally (although I'm not strictly opposed), I prefer more chill places where I can actually talk with people or shoot a game of pool.
I love traveling, but now that I'm finally settled into a full time job instead of living the grad school life I don't get to do as much of it as I like. My favorite place that I got to live for a while was Ramallah, Palestine.
I enjoy going to the movies, my favorite are action or superhero movies (very excited about this new Superman movie featuring Batman, although still very dubious about the casting). But I also like a good evening of Netflix binging on the couch with a glass of wine, especially once it gets too cold to spend a lot of time outside.
I also love college football, my user name is a homage to my favorite team. Fall is definitely my favorite season.
I am happy, focused, and honest.
Currently getting back into playing ice hockey now that I live in an area with an ice rink, not any good, but I love to play. I'll join any intramural sport that will have me and my fairly uncoordinated self, I just really enjoy team sports.
I spent time in college and law school living/studying/working/wandering around the Middle East/Africa, and hope to make it back there eventually, although I still don't know how that fits into my picture of the future.
Movies: Wedding Crashers, Crash, Erbs am Halb Sechts, Dot the I, Boondocks Saints, Fight Club, Spiderman I and II, Casino Royal, Lucky Number Slevin, Star Wars (the originals), Indiana Jones (the first three), The Fugitive, Fried Green Tomatoes, The Three Muskateers, When the Wind Shakes the Barley
TV: The West Wing (I could watch seasons 1-4 on repeat for the rest of eternity possibly), Doctor Who, Castle, How I Met Your Mother, NCIS, Law & Order (regular and SVU), Downton Abbey, Bones (a recent addition to my TV watching, the ridiculous gore in the opening scenes cracks me up), Game of Thrones.
Music: I love country music, more a fan of stuff from the 90s and earlier, Garth Brooks will always be my favorite country singer. But I also enjoy pop, oldies, some rock, etc. Snow Patrol is perhaps my favorite band of all time.
Food: I'll try just about anything. Ethiopian (injara is just so tasty), Vietnamese, and Middle Eastern cuisines are among my favorite. Also, there's almost nothing that beats a good cheeseburger.
2. Friends (they keep me sane, happy and going strong).
4. Music (I listen to music no matter what I'm doing).
5. Good food/cooking
You're relatively happy person and would like to get coffee or a beer something similar (I actually don't like coffee, but it sounds better than "let's get a diet coke"). Also, you should have some interest in the world around you, politics (domestic or international), or you've traveled, or want to travel, etc.
