My self-summary
Quick list of things about me because I like to make lists:
- Graduated from KSU 2 years ago, managed to get a job with an awesome company in St. Louis. For better or for worst I somehow managed to get transferred back to Topeka.
- Coffee: I love it. I regularly get funny looks from my friends when I tell them how much I spend on the stuff.
- I’m terrible about staying on one topic when talking to people; there are some many interesting things to talk about my brain can’t focus just on one.
- Boats are probably my favorite thing in the world; summer just wouldn’t be complete without spending some quality time lounging around on the back of the boat.
-I travel on a fairly regular basis for both business and pleasure. Unlike a lot of people I really don’t mind living in Topeka (every city is what you make it), but I can’t help but to get out to explore new places/have random travel adventures with my friends/co-workers.
-Messing around in the kitchen is one of my newer hobbies, in particular baking; I have found it to be a great way to decompress from a long work week. I’d say I’m definitely a solid 90% in the “Hey this is really good!”/ “Holy crap that’s horrid!” hit ratio with my cooking
What I’m doing with my life
I use to want to be a paleontologist, but then I turned 6. Then I wanted to be a boat builder, but I turned 12. Then I wanted to be an architect, but I turned 18 and realized I don’t want to be broke the rest of my life. Now at 24, I work for a construction company out in St. Louis as an quasi-engineer/estimator. Is it as glamorous as being an architect? Nope, but I think it’s about 10x more interesting/challenging and I have yet to find a job that has quite as much of an adrenaline rush as the one I have now. I love what I do and don’t think I wouldn’t change it for anything in the world.

The number one reason why I love my job though: I get paid to color stuff with highlighters!
I’m really good at
Well I don't mean to brag or anything but I've got some mad coloring skills.
The first things people usually notice about me
um...I'm bald. After they get over that big shocker, they usually feel compelled to touch/rub my head with their icy cold hands. Why people do this I have no clue, but I can tell you that the whole "grab my head with your freezing cold hands" experience is completely un-awesome.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: I listen mostly to alternate rock although I like to throw a bit of indie and pop in there every now and then for good measure. Currently frequenting the top of my playlists: The Mowgli’s, Blondfire, Matt & Kim, Daft Punk, Alt-J, M83, Icona Pop, & Beastie Boys

TV: I really don’t watch any TV, there are way too many other interesting things to be doing.

Food: I’m pretty much down for anything. I’ve recently started to challenge myself by trying some of the foods I’ve had a prejudice against since I was a kid; mostly mushrooms and seafood. My favorite food though: steak; nothing fancy, just quality meat, properly seasoned & cooked.

Books- I read, a lot; I’m into everything from the classics to science fiction although I've been trying to stick more toward the non-fiction side of things right now. Currently I'm reading Dance with Dragons by George Martin and slowly making my way through Thomas Jefferson: The art of power. Some of my favorites include the Dresden files, anything by Douglas Adams, The Heart of Darkness, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Fahrenheit 451, The Grand Design, The Pearl, Naked Economics, and many others that I don't feel like typing out.
Six things I could never do without
1. coffee (life would just be depressing without it)
2. boats (again life would be depressing without them)
3. a stocking cap in winter (my head gets bloody cold in the winter)
4. cool summer mornings (um...I just like them, 'nuff said)
5. Goals (This is pretty self-explanatory)
6. A watch (I'm all about being punctual)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
um...probably on how I need to focus on what I should be doing instead of thinking about dumb things like why people continue to make toasters with settings that can burn toast in such a horrible way that no decent person would eat it.
On a typical Friday night I am
I can be a bit of a workaholic so Friday nights are usually my stay at home and let my brain try and recover. Saturday is the day I'm usually out and about, doing stuff with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Needles make me cringe and snakes make me want to scream like a little girl.
You should message me if
You've found my ramblings somewhat interesting, you're bored, or you want to have in-depth conversations about really random stuff (like toasters!)
