Things I don’t like: Bad Dogs, Complacent Ignorance, Communication Problems, Confrontations, Mathematics, Bigotry, Dirty Dishes, and When Birds Fly into Windows.
I am currently attending school and working part time. I am studying Information and Library Sciences and Elementary Education. I find it terribly ironic that I am studying ILS and yet have absolutely no time to read for pleasure.
I work at a small library and moonlight in a writing center. In the summer I work at a local museum as an interpreter and gift shop attender. And I help edit a newspaper (I even write articles for it sometimes).
I blush entirely too much. I sometimes get tongue-tied if people address me directly. I can be shy but I am comfortable with silence.
I look you in the eye and have a tendency to skip small talk. I ask questions.

Ehhh, no thanks. I only say this because I can’t stop myself when I start to watch a show. I mean, ca'mon, Game of Thrones… How addicting is that!?

Well, not the zombie kind but our carbon footprint, our widening ozone hole, and the dwindling of natural resources. Ever seen 'The Road'? Terrifying!
I used to go to bed at 8 and, though I still have the tendency to look forward to sleep, I am working hard to kick the habit.
I think armpits are much more attractive with hair.
I really want to hear about what you're cooking for dinner, or how you saved a snapping turtle from near death, or a musical experience that you enjoyed, or a poem you wrote.
While I respect the person you are and that you are reaching out to another human being, I am NOT interested in having sex with you, no matter how much money is involved. I am also very much NOT interested in whether or not you are attracted to my physical appearance. I don’t want to hear ‘Hi, how are you’, ‘What’s up’, or other such greetings. I’m sorry, but no thanks.
