My self-summary
In the process of relocating from Denver, so just browsing for now.

I'm originally from the Carolinas and I still maintain that slower pace of life, I tend not to let the little things get to me. I thrive on the opportunity to expand my social circles and can usually find common ground with just about anyone. I could describe myself in such original keywords such as: Easygoing, Low Maintenance, and Laid Back...but won't.

I have my life together, apparently living on your own with a career, transportation, and fiscal responsibility is an accomplishment these days. It would be nice if you could say the same yourself. I do have solo custody of my teenage son, thought I ought to throw that out there since it's a pretty common deal breaker (which I understand why). I've kept him alive all on my own for this long, so we're doing pretty well. No, we're not the cliche package deal I keep reading on here; while he won't be going anywhere I'm not asking for anyone to take the role of Mom. I've created a decent balance of work life, home life, and a social life.
What I’m doing with my life
As in work? I'm in Information Security; no that doesn't mean I'm a Rent-A-Cop at the library. It's a subset of the IT field and you're probably falling asleep at this point.

One day I would like to break into the competitive world of sign spinning but it's one tough nut to crack.

As in play? I wish! I keep fairly busy updating and DIY'ing the house, this means I'm intimately familiar with the aisles of Home Depot and the dining table more often than not, doubles as the drop off point for my HD run plunder. That said, the proper motivation could tear me away for a drink or possibly even dinner.
I’m really good at
Snarky remarks during bad movies or reality TV

Getting lost and finding something better than what I was originally looking for

Pub quiz: never first and never last, comfortably right in the middle of the pack
The first things people usually notice about me
My Presidential Physical Fitness award, maybe? I won it in 4th grade and mom had it bronzed and I still wear it to this day.

That I'm a strong, independent black woman who don't need no man?

Probably whatever politically incorrect statement is coming out of my mouth. I don't toe either party line so it's only a matter of time before pissing off someone.

Trustifarians find me particularly offensive...good.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Various stack of half read non-fiction.

TV: Slowly work my way through series on Netflix, I do like a good British comedy.

Movies: Again whatever I come across on Netflix.

Music: Don't have any specific tastes though I'm a sucker for 90s on 9. If it's catchy I'll listen.

Food: Pretty adventurous here, end result of many years spent living abroad. Prefer independent joints over chains though.
Six things I could never do without
Duct tape
Grocery delivery (Holy shit is it awesome)
I spend a lot of time thinking about

The twenty year cycle of fashion, my old Reebok Pumps, jorts and Big Johnson/No Fear shirts are going to be "in" again any day now!

A business venture I'm planning called "Puppies and Candy", I already have the big white van and candy, just need some more puppies.

Reminiscing on the most entertaining election cycle since Ross Perot and his graphs
On a typical Friday night I am
Book signing at the local bookstore; at least until security escorts me out...again.

My Saturday nights are typically more entertaining, and for the more adventurous out there, I might know of a party or two where costumes are socially acceptable outside of October.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once called Clinton "dude" and said "fuck" in the same sentence...yes, to his face and while he was still President. To be fair he walked up behind me and I didn't realize it was him.

I sometimes talk or sing (usually songs I'm making up as I go) to myself when I'm out and then suddenly get really paranoid because I can't remember if I'm using my inner or outer voice.

I own stock in a chain of strip clubs. Not really private but definitely heard a wide range of reactions to this little tid bit.
Update: sold the stocks, apparently lap dances aren't considered alternatives to collecting dividends

Also not so private but I had a vasectomy years ago. Despite what others have imagined, no amount of PowerPoint presentations, sexual bribery, or pleading is going to convince me to have a reversal just to put a baby in you. I don't doubt you'd make a great mom but the thought of starting over with diapers and daycare is terrifying. Quite honestly the entirety of my 30s and half my 20s have been dedicated to being a dad and my career. I intend to enjoy my 40s, rediscovering who I am as an adult. These teenage years are me doing so with my floaties on in the shallow end of being an empty nester.
You should message me if
You prefer the crossword puzzle to the seek-and-find.

You have a good head on your shoulders and your life together

You're profile has some substance to it

You get that my weekdays can be a bit hectic between work, the boy and my everyday responsibilities but I'm in no way looking to pass those off on anyone else

Oh, and if the Neo-Nazis would stop messaging me that'd be great
The two of us
