My self-summary
Let's skip this part and let you decide for yourself....seems better than me spewing a bunch of random things I think are important for you to know.
However....if I must...
Who wants to go on an adventure and take me with you? I am always looking for somewhere new and exciting to go to. I make it a point to go to at least one new place a year...doesn't have to be exotic, just somewhere I've never been, though most years it's more than 1 new place. I always have a trip in the works and could always use new travel buddies. I've been pretty lucky to have been raised in an airline family and the perks have been awesome....though underused lately!
So ya like to watch a good (insert desired sport here) game....guess what....me too!! I know just enough to keep me interested, but not enough to steal your sports guru crown.
I'd consider myself friendly, have a sense of humor...won't be headlining open mic night, but I get funny, loyal, independent to a fault, stubborn, genuine, generous....
This should be enough to get us started!
What I’m doing with my life
In the last year I got to reboot my career teaching nursing at one of the local universities...just what I needed and I love it!! Up until now, I have spent my career as a pediatric oncology nurse. Yes, it's sad at times and a downer in conversations, but it's one of the most rewarding thing I've done in my life.
I’m really good at
-crossword puzzles...I used to always do them with my dad on Sundays
-directions and getting around new places...my sister calls me "JPS"
-naps
-on the flipside...functioning on little sleep. actually i think my entertainment value increases due to delirium. Comes from over a decade of working the night shift
-bringing perspective to a situation...I just like to challenge people to think outside the box a little
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told I'm short...I hope people are aware I already know this!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
movies: ferris buellers day off, shawshank redemption, good will hunting, wizard of oz, beautiful girls, little miss sunshine
current dvr list: greys anatomy, top chef, law and order svu, americas next top model, real housewives-most are normal, but i'm a sucker for some of the guilty pleasure reality shows
music: really depends on what I'm doing. Roadtrippin...classic rock or country; going out...top 40 or something that gets me dancing....pretty much anything I hear played live
travel spots: hawaii, australia, belize, new orleans, new york, berlin, southern spain
The six things I could never do without
Besides the basics of life...there isn't really anything I couldn't do without. I choose not to be without:
-my pup
-an adventure in the works
-a cold beer after a long day
-phone/computer- gots to stay connected
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what's next...my next trip, my next career move, my next trip to the grocery store...
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends on the week, I could be working (I still pick up shifts at the hospital). I could be chilling on my couch with my dog, dvr and a beer. I could be drinking with friends. I don't usually turn down an invite to something that will get me out of the house.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
No skeletons, but the least you can do is treat me to dinner first.
You should message me if
-You dont' have a house full of cats or live in your mother's basement with no intention of ever leaving
-You are educated, have a passion for something, can make me laugh(I promise that's easy to do), are good-hearted, treat others well, and are generally awesome
-And please live in a vicinity where we might actually be able to meet at some point...not half way across the country or world (this one would seem to be a given, but somehow requires the disclaimer!)
-You actually have pictures of yourself....without them I assume the worst about your appearance
