My self-summary
I can be serious, but I also have a quirky streak, and I appreciate those who encourage the latter to come out in my personality more often.

I work hard (and quite a bit), but I also very much appreciate the time that it takes to build and maintain relationships with friends and family.

Keep reading if you would like to know what some of my friends/family think of me:
I polled some of the people I'm close to in different aspects of life and asked them to describe me in 4 words or fewer. Here goes:
--Bright. Fun. Energetic. Intelligent.
--Smart. Loyal. Quirky.
--Neon. Loyal. Smart. Dedicated. Neon!
--Brilliant. Straightforward. Caring.
--Passionate. Funny. Smart.
--Smart. Fun. Witty. Caring.
--Beautiful. Smart. Caring. Loving.
--Intelligent. Quirky. Joyful. Responsible.
--Playful. Insightful. Protective.
--Intelligent. Fun. Kind-hearted. True friend.
--Dedicated. Team player. "I don't know what word it would be but something to describe your laugh."
--Intellectually curious. Loyal. Painfully adorable. Deliberate.

Man! If you are ever having a bad day, you should give this poll to the people you're close to. That turned out better than expected. Instant way to brighten your day! Anyway; you can do you own analysis and judge which ones might be the most prominent of my personality traits.

My sense of humor is definitely very sarcastic. I lived with and hung out with guys for most of college, so I am not easily offended and I do appreciate a guy who can give me a hard time in a friendly, flirty way. Just be warned, I will give you a hard time right back!
What I’m doing with my life
The past year my life has been pretty consistently filled with a lot of progress in the "adulting" category; with a house, an MBA, a new job position, two dogs, and a new car to show for from the year I suppose I can no longer deny that I am truly making Indy my home and maybe even starting to settle down a bit. I am excited for things to calm down a little this school year so that I can spend more time enjoying the city with friends, staying in with the pups, and growing in my new role at my school.
I’m really good at
Making friends.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes or eyelashes. Apparently my eyelashes are quite long.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite musicians are Keane, Damien Rice, Greg Laswell, and Cake. Also I'm a sucker for catchy pop music and still hang on to a bit of my "emo" phase from high school from time to time.

I don't watch much TV (in fact I don't own a TV), but I go through phases of marathon watching seasons worth of shows on Netflix and Hulu. Favorite shows are probably Blacklist, Criminal Minds, and New Girl. I wish I could be Zoe's character when I grow up.

I like to read very much. I like a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction, although I don't read as much as I wish I did. I like to use reading as a way to embrace my inner nerdy-ness!
Six things I could never do without
A good book
My car (although I'd love to live somewhere where I did not need this)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to help students learn and how to help teachers help students learn.

Questions like, "Could your red be my blue?"

What step(s) will be up next in life.

Why people (including myself) act the way they do in different situations.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out with friends, in resting with my dogs, or on a drive up to the lake house or to travel to see friends!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have lazy eyes, which I can normally control, but are dead giveaways when I am exhausted and/or have had a couple of drinks.

I have a very difficult time making decisions. I have skipped meals before because I could not make a decision about what to have.
You should message me if
You are educated or otherwise successful in life, have a steady job (preferably a career), use correct grammar (even in text messages), and want to spend time with a fun, nerdy, and independent woman.
The two of us
