My self-summary
I'm 29 years old, currently in the red-tape-and-paperwork nightmare of getting divorced (so only looking for friends as of now). My ex and I dated for over five years before getting married, and were separated after less than 2 years of marriage. It wasn't my choice, but it's a really long story, and this is supposed to be a "summary", so I'll leave it out for now. :P
What I’m doing with my life
I have a bachelors and masters degree and am currently employed using both. My real dream is to be a writer, which I'm pursuing slowly, but surely.
I’m really good at
I love working with kids and teenagers. I also love to write, paint, draw, and run. I ran my first marathon last December in Las Vegas (my time was officially listed as 'slow-as-molasses'), and ran my first Tough Mudder last October. I plan on doing both again this year.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair (long and blonde, usually worn in a ponytail), and then my eyes. And then my smile, because I am almost always smiling.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Harry Potter, The Dresden Files, and basically a lot of young adult fiction. It's what I want to write, so it's what I mostly read.

Movies: My tastes range from gritty and cult (Fight Club, The Big Lebowski) to animated (Coraline, The Adventures of TinTin). I can enjoy almost any movie, though, unless it was made by Michael Bay. But be forewarned: I'm one of those people that talks in the theater.

Shows: I don't watch much broadcast television unless it's sports or local news, but on Netflix I love Sherlock, Dr. Who, Burn Notice, Hell on Wheels, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Futurama. Not really a fan of Family Guy.

Music: I love old vinyl, even though I own none. Crosby, Stills, and Nash, Neil Young, The Allman Brothers, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, et cetera. Nineties era alt rock is my favorite, including bands like Nirvana, Audioslave, Alice in Chains, Tool, and Soundgarden. For modern music, I'm a big fan of Passion Pit, Peter, Bjorn, and John, Two Door Cinema Club, Iron and Wine, and Mumford and Sons.

Food: I love to cook, and I love to cook healthy. I enjoy experimenting with recipes and unusual ingredients, seeing what I can do with them. I also make a mean homemade pizza.
The six things I could never do without
I've sort of learned, after splitting my possessions, not to limit myself on "stuff I can't live without".
So anyway, here are six things.

1.) My laptop (only because it's got all my writings stored on it)
2.) A good pair of running shoes
3.) My old, beaten, written-in Bible
4.) My guitar (so I can practice so I won't suck)
5.) Coffee.
6.) Good beer

I wanted to go the route of "loved ones and friends", but they're not really 'things'. And it goes without saying that I can't live without them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I just spend a lot of time thinking. Most of the time I am so scatter-brained that I have five or six things flying around between my ears.
On a typical Friday night I am
I love spending time with friends, or going out with one person and making some adventures and memories. A few weekends a year I'm running around with my youth kids from church on retreats or mission trips. I also like leaving town on mini-vacations to visit my family.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was a little kid, I wanted to be a pirate when I grew up (and I still sort of want to).
One of my biggest celebrity crushes was/is the Supernanny.
I have a pair of Chuck Taylors that are older than the students I teach.
You should message me if
You're looking for someone to hang out with, at least for now, and you love intelligent conversation. If you and I share three or four things I listed, then we're bound to have something to talk about.
