My self-summary
Hadn't been on here for a while. I'll have to re-write the rest of my profile here soon, as it is from a while ago, but for now, it's still pretty accurate:

I enjoy a lot of the simple little things in life, and it is not hard to make me smile or laugh. I have my up days and down days like anybody, but no matter what I still tend to be an optimist. I can find a way to get interested in just about anything (with the exception of Organic Chemistry... if you've taken it you probably understand), from music, to sports, to art, science, theater, psychology, to pretty much anything you can think of. I am very much a people person, though as I get older, I do appreciate my alone time more and more. I love to travel, and would love to do a lot more of it than I've gotten the chance to do thus far. I am a pretty difficult person not to get along with, and I can usually find at least some common ground that we share. I am always looking for new experiences, and will typically try anything at least once.

As for what I'm looking for on here... I mean, yeah, obviously it would be great to have the good fortune to stumble upon the love of my life and live happily ever after, etc. But, basically I am just looking to find really fun and interesting people that can add something to the richness of my life experiences, and for whom I can do the same. That could be as friends, as something more than friends, as activity partners (ha, we could even go hit up some karaoke or something, lol). Like I said, I like people, and I enjoy making new friends.

By the way, I just put the "very serious about agnosticism" thing over there because I think it's pretty funny to think of how someone could really be all that serious about agnosticism... Oh, and my response on body type is also sarcastic. But even if I DID fit the description of being "Jacked", I sure hope I wouldn't refer to myself as such.

I am Adventurous, Quick-Witted, and Curious
What I’m doing with my life
Recently moved to Oklahoma City from Omaha, NE. I was born and raised in Omaha, but I also spent some time living in KC, Branson, Springfield, Atlanta, and Chicago. Right now, just working as a Training Coordinator and Operations Supervisor and at a plasma clinic, and saving up some money to be able to go back to school without racking up a bunch more student loans.

Aside from that, just the usual- trying to better myself in any way that I can, trying to find interesting new experiences, and trying to find good relationships with great people that will be fulfilling and rewarding for all parties involved.

Just getting back into running again after having to lay off for a good while due to a knee injury. Also branching into multi-sport. I just signed for the 2016 NYC Triathlon, which I'm pretty excited about. Hoping to do my first 70.3 by late fall.
I’m really good at
I guess people tell me I am good at singing, and dancing (though that may be more for the humor), being sarcastic, racquetball, playing drums, talking/listening/giving advice, problem solving, if I'm training I can be a half-way decent distance runner, and I'm pretty darn good at making people laugh. There aren't too many things that I'm really horrible at, but unfortunately nothing I'm really ridiculously stellar at either. Kind of a jack of all trades, master of none... it always feels a bit odd filling in this part, but I guess there ya go.
The first things people usually notice about me
My Voice- I get told a lot that I should do radio (maybe they're just meaning to say that I've got a face for radio...); My Laugh-which I'm told is contagious (though I find it ridiculous); My Smile; My overuse of parentheses (as I am currently illustrating); That it feels like you've know me for years right away... I guess there's not one constant, so let me know what you notice!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I tend to like books that make me think. That can either be through a good story or through some keen observations about life. I really enjoyed Tuesdays With Morie, Wild at Heart, Blue Like Jazz, etc. I have also found that I love quotes, they can be so concisely profound... though I also like ones with pseudo profundity e.g. "Once bread becomes toast, it can never be bread again..." I do like witty or satirical stuff like Kurt Vonnegut and I really like short stories. I have also developed the not-so-wonderful habit of starting like ten different books at the same time, and lately I have found that I am almost incapable of walking into a bookstore and not buying at least one book before I leave.

Currently Reading: Slaughterhouse Five and The Hobbit

I pretty much like movies in general. I like silly comedies, heavy dramas, intellectual documentaries, tongue in cheek mockumentaries, yes, even chick flicks... anything that's either done well enough to appreciate or so poorly that it's funny. My favorite movies are ones that combine a number of elements and are able to make you laugh, cry, think, learn, and sometimes even change all in one. A few I consider classics: Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Good Will Hunting, Silence of the Lambs, Charade, Empire Records, Stranger Than Fiction, True Lies, Amelie, Anchorman, The Cutting Edge (I know, but I love it), The Shawshank Redemption, Magnolia, The Incredibles, Memento, The Princess Bride... the list definitely goes on, but I'll stop there.

Ha, I've realized that I tend, for whatever reason to like TV shows with one word titles... House, Psych, Dexter, Weeds, Scrubs, Castle, Bones, Community, etc. There are many with more than one word too, though. And ya gotta love The Daily Show.

I like any music that makes me feel. Makes me feel happy, sad, whimsical, empowered, reflective, feel the need to get up and dance, feel the need to sing along- to me that's the whole point of music: feeling. I like rock, jazz, latin, classical, oldies, some hip hop, a little rap, funk, blues, some indie/emo, singer songwriter. I'm pretty much up for anything. I recently acquired a record player/record collection, and I'm loving it. And I would definitely take any suggestions anybody has on good venues that I should check out now that I'm in OKC.

I love the experience that dining can be. The familiarity and home feeling of going to an old hang out and getting your favorite dish. Or having new dining experiences and finding great new places to go; whether that be an old dive or a posh new place. I miss having friends around that like to go out for sushi (I don't know why people are so scared of it, but to each his own I suppose). Predictable as this is becoming, again, I guess I'm up for most anything.
Six things I could never do without
Family and Friends, Intellectual Stimulation, A Sense of Humor, Helping People, A Little Adventure, Creative Expression (or at least appreciating that of others)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything. I don't think anyone has every accused me of not thinking enough, lol. I do find my self asking Why and How about any number of random things throughout the day. How does something work, Why was it designed that way, etc. Guess it makes sense that I have ended up in a scientific field.

And of course the normal things, like where will I be in a few years, and who will be in my life, and how do I meet all the goals I have for myself, but not overdue it by trying to reach them all at once.
On a typical Friday night I am
Any number of different things. Sometimes just staying in reading a good book or renting a movie. Other times, out to dinner and a show. Or going out for a nice summer night run. Who knows, I'm up for most anything though.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am pretty much an open book, so I guess I don't see what I feel is too private exactly... anything you wanna know, feel free to ask and I'll likely answer.
You should message me if
You feel like it... I like people!
The two of us
