My self-summary
Well, my name is Amber, and I like to speak my mind.

I really enjoy spending time with people. It's something that I thrive on actually.

But I'm also okay with being by myself too, reading or listening to music. It depends on my mood.

What I need above all else is for someone to be honest with me. If you feel uncomfortable, tell me. If I'm pissing you off, tell me. If you're over me and never want to see me again, JUST FUCKING TELL ME. Above all else I want someone that WANTS to be with me. And to not be with someone that doesn't want to be with me; there's no worse feeling.

I'm in college, double majoring in Marine Biology and Chinese. School wasn't a priority for me when I was young, but now it's the most important thing in my life. I love what I'm studying, and can't wait to be out in the real world doing it.

I also really enjoy taking pictures. Not for show or anything, more like keeping memories and that.

I like to have fun, and really will try anything once (well, mostly).

I'm an ENFP, though I am on the F/T border. Some tests put me as an ENTP, but also only barely.

I have no idea what to put here. I hope I don't sound awkward...but I probably do.

I really like to make funky things in the kitchen. I don't like a lot of food, but the food I do like I'm totally okay with mixing in strange ways. Like canned corn and BBQ sauce. Or ramen and eggs. Ah, college eating.

I also really like Stumbling online. I do it so often and I just get amazed at how many hilarious things are on the internet.

There is no rhyme or reason to this, by the way. I'm just typing to type.

I think goofy boys are better than serious ones. Cause it's not like they aren't able to be serious, they just enjoy being playful more. And I'm into that.

I am super allergic to cats. Like, I don't even like being around people that own cats cause their clothing makes me sneeze. I get that people really love them...just do it far far away from me.

I'm really messy. That might be my worst flaw in fact. I'm not like a hoarder or anything, I just live a little disheveled.

I watch Discovery Channel, documentaries, and Netflix more than any human being should. It's a little ridiculous.

I did my first two years of college in LA then transferred back to URI. I'm originally from Boston (meaning I love the Sox, Celtics, Bruins, and Pats, don't mess), but I don't have the accent. I go back there a lot because that's where my family is, and I love being home. Rhode Island is very different than what I'm used to, especially in terms of concentration of people, so I'm still adjusting. The fog here is overwhelming, but the beaches are totally amazing. I love going down to the water and sitting on the sand.

I love love love driving. When I'm with people it's singing songs and playing padiddle; when I'm alone it's much more zen, peaceful. Even over long distances, I relish the time I spend with my car.

And now I'm ending this because I don't know what else to say.
What I’m doing with my life
I am currently working very hard on my recovery. I just passed my 6 months of sobriety. I'm staying active in the recovery community, working, and spending time with other clean and sober people.
I’m really good at
Listening and helping people work through their problems.

Also, laughing at dumb jokes. Trust me, terrible puns will always get a laugh from me. If you're an amateur comedian, put me in the front row, I'll make you look good.
The first things people usually notice about me
How loud I am. My voice really carries, and I like to talk, so everyone tends to notice that about me.

Or maybe my hair. It's wicked curly and poofy. People like touching it, oddly enough.

The six things I could never do without
Family, friends, iPhone, laptop, lighter, camera.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Really really random things, like what lives at the bottom of the ocean and why old people sometimes just stop aging. Like, my grandpa has looked the same for the past 15 years. It's like he just froze in time. WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN!?

Also, I try to translate what I'm thinking/saying into Chinese in my head, just to work on my skill level.
On a typical Friday night I am
My home group is on Friday nights, so I'm there early to make coffee and sell raffle tickets. After that, I'm at home, watching SVU, Crimibal Minds, or something on Netflix with my roommates.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am an alcoholic in early recovery.
You should message me if
You have any questions, I'm an open book.

Or if you just want to talk, I really do enjoy meeting new people.

Or if you like Star Trek, because none of my friends accept my obsession.

Or if you're in recovery and want to talk about it. Especially early recovery, like me. We have to help each other out.

Or if you have a cute dog (especially a corgi). I will hang out with you just to chill with your dog.
