My self-summary
I find self-summaries hard to write - do I list the "hats" I wear? list my interests? pin a few labels on myself? None of those sound like fun.

Some random facts about me: I am fiercely loyal to those I love. I have a big dumb heart when it comes to animals. I like animals more than people. I don't actually like "people" as a whole, but I love individuals. My head just about explodes when I witness someone spreading misinformation - a little piece of me dies in those moments. Piggybacking on that, I am a research addict - I probably missed my calling as a professional researcher/fact checker.

I love to read (LOVE to read), bake, cook, watch movies, socialize. I am addicted to learning. I read just about everything that I come across, including shampoo bottles and cereal boxes. I have my books split into libraries and small collections. I used to work in a library and the desire to have my own personal library (a room dedicated to books and reading) only intensified.

I would like to find a partner with whom to share my life, but I do not need a partner. I'm very independent, but it's nice to have someone with whom to share triumphs and tribulations and to know that someone has my back and I have theirs.

I talk a lot. Online chat, text messaging, phone, in person...whatever the medium, I talk. A lot. Fair warning.

I am talkative, opinionated, and fun.
One of my best friends describes me as "Introspective, but outspoken." I think it fits.
What I’m doing with my life
I own my own business in addition to working in an administrative position for another company.

In regards to traditional university, I am about 4 classes from graduating with a BA in women and gender studies - I'm on hiatus, but I'll go back and finish someday.
I’m really good at
Baking. I'm not an expert pastry chef, but I can follow a recipe perfectly. ;) Actually, I'm just pretty good at desserts. I make a damn good cookie, awesome cheesecake, and pretty delicious cakes. I guess desserts in general. I'm also pretty good at knitting and other fiber crafts/needlework. Makes me sound like a granny, but I love it.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes - they're green.
I'm also told I'm quite funny (I think I'm just
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I love to read - I'm a book addict. Magical realism is my favorite genre, but I read a ton of non-fiction as well.

Movies: I don't watch as many movies as I'd like to, but I enjoy comedies, dramas, and I love documentaries.

TV shows: I find that I don't really watch TV anymore. I wind up DVRing things and watching them 4-5 months later when I find myself with absolutely nothing to do and start feeling aimless.

Music: I like almost all music - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers is my favorite band of all times - I've seen them in concert three times and hope to see them more. I love classic rock, new rock, alternative, some country, classical...I like music.

Food: I like a wide variety of foods, but I adore Pad Thai. Cheese is necessary to survival - good cheese, that is (Gruyere and the sharpest cheddar possible). I enjoy making food as much or more than I enjoy eating it.
Six things I could never do without
Electricity (I don't do well in power outages - they are a pet peeve of mine)
Physical affection (I really like hugs, even if it does sound a little lame)
My daughter (of course)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- My daughter.
- My future.
- Whatever books I'm currently reading. And the books I'm going to read next. And the books I want to buy. And the books I've bought yet haven't read...
- Where the universe ends. It freaks me out to think about it, but I can't help it.
- What I want to be when I grow up.
- School. I love learning, but I'm not well suited to the "traditional student model." It's not easy for me, and I struggle with it, but I still love it.
On a typical Friday night I am
home with my daughter. When she's with her dad, I'm home without my daughter, watching things I've recorded on the DVR in the months previous. Or just falling asleep far too early.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been sober for 4 years.
