My self-summary
INTJ

Spent 3 years in Denver, loved it, and now I'm back in the Dirty South. Big fan of music, baking, writing, gardening, being with friends. I'm going through a bit of a quarter-life crisis, figuring out my career, losing weight, and really focusing on finding out what makes me tick. So right now, I'm looking for meaningful connections and conversations. I always admire a healthy beard. Interests include sushi, brews from Great Divide (omg), SNL, Lorrie Moore, "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me," farmer's markets, choral music, porn, peacoats, Poulenc, Pixar.

I appreciate dogs and prefer cats. As I realized in a drunken conversation with a friend, dogs are easy. Dogs are for people who don't have people. And then we started singing selections from Funny Girl.

I am well-rounded, introverted, and permeable
What I’m doing with my life
Studied baking and management at culinary school in Denver. Recently moved to Charleston (so excited to become a local) and took a job as a bread baker. The job is kicking my ass a bit--lots of heavy lifting--but once I develop the right set of muscles, I'll be good to go (and rippling with sinewy power). It's a position that should lead to climbing the organizational ladder, so I see myself in management in a few years.

Also, ever since the supreme court DOMA stuff, marriage suddenly seems like an option for me. So, I'm sorry if I get starry-eyed thinking about commitment and sharing my life with someone I love.
I’m really good at
downplaying myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't say anything if it's not worth saying. Sometimes this translates as shyness. But sometimes something is worth saying because it's pretty fucking hilarious. So watch out!
Six things I could never do without
Never? Never ever?

Computer (sigh)
Friends
Good conversations
Boiled peanuts
Regular access to a piano
Laughter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
linguistic hypercorrection. Hypothetical conversations. Bits of life that would make for a good short story. Student loans. My future kitchen. Growing more vegetables.
On a typical Friday night I am
either very fun or very boring. It all depends on my company, and what I did Thursday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've never seen The Titanic.
You should message me if
you saw something you liked.
