My self-summary
On the surface, I seem ordinary, but once you get to know me, you'll find me surprising. At first glance, I might seem quiet, but once we start talking, I can have a lot to say. I'm interested in all sorts of things: books, movies, music, travel, current events.
I do tend to be a workaholic, and I'm trying to break the habit. I'd really like to meet people I don't work with, as currently all my friends are also co-workers. But work is taking up a big part of my life.
What I’m doing with my life
I teach writing at an area university.
I’m really good at
teaching and writing
The first things people usually notice about me
I was recently told that the qualities people see in me are insight, dedication, executive skills and communication skills. Of course, that person was talking about my professional self.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My all-time favorite movie is the first Matrix film. I've become hooked on Japanese animation, which generally amuses people since I don't fit the stereotype. My music collection is fairly varied, but American roots music and celtic folk music are a fairly sizable portion.
When it comes to television, I can be pretty geeky. I've been a Doctor Who fan since the '80s. I went through an anime period a few years ago. I look for great stories and great characters. Currently, Mad Men is my can't-miss television.
It's hard for me to pin down favorite books, though I suppose Jane Austen's Persuasion is one of the top five. It's about a couple who meet again 8 years after breaking off their engagement.
I've become hooked on Food Network. I'm not a great cook, though I do quite enjoy baking. I would love to take cooking classes.
Six things I could never do without
In no particular order: something to read, a hot bath, an Internet connection, my car, the ability to think, and flannel sheets
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend too much time thinking about work. I also tend to day dream a bit. I think about writing fiction again, but I just haven't had the time to devote to it. In fact, I suspect I spend most of my time thinking about time in one way or another.
On a typical Friday night I am
Home watching TV. I'm not a "go out and hit the bars" kind of girl.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been putting online dating off for a very long time because I've been intimidated by it.
You should message me if
you're interested and you're in southern or western Virginia, or nearby.
The two of us
