My self-summary
um. So I've been on OKC for *years*. Like, through major life transitions. So some of the shit on here is old, as in ancient history. Most of it is still accurate, because, you know, history doesn't really change too much. But this is what you need to know: I'm married. I am happily married, to a gent I met on this website no less. We don't have anything near a traditional marriage, but that's not necessarily an invitation for all of the sexy times, and if that's the only reason you hit that message button, you're not going to get too far. I'm interested in fun chats and real life friends. I only have so much patience for online chitchat, but I have all the patience for going out for coffee, dancing, drinking or game night, especially if my husband can come along (he's cool, I promise). We don't have much of a social life in Austin, so the more friends, the better.

I guess as an update, I am a bit of a training nerd, I really love doing instructional design stuff. I was training for a web hosting company but they let me go, sad day.

Here's some older stuff that I don't have the heart to delete now because I spent a lot of time of this, dammit (although now I do find myself cleaning it up a bit):


I studied Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, I love both topics, and can talk your ear off about them. I think creationism, or ID (intelligent design, not instructional design :) ), is a bad joke, and that religion talk is beneath scientists. Richard Dawkins drives me nuts, he's a pretentious ass. But his books about evolution are amazing and I highly recommend them. I just don't like the attitude of someone knowing there is no god, and being so sure of themselves they think they can decide for everyone else.

I think greed is a horrible human trait, but one that is very very hard to even minimize, much less eradicate. My take on the topic revolves around my environmentalist tendencies. There are many many things that we do that harm the environment, and harm ourselves, and there's no reason for it, other than it's just habit, or it's built into this image of luxury that people aspire to. In this case, there is no reason for 1-2 people to live in a 5000 sq ft giganto mansion, furnish it, heat it, air condition it, keep pests out, etc etc (not to mention transporting the materials thousands of miles to actually build it), just to have a place to store their crap. The bad thing is that people really do need a place to live, and they do deserve a place that is nice, etc. I don't really fault them for that. But if everyone does it you have problems. And if only a few do it you still have problems - everyone wants to keep up with the Joneses, and part of happiness is thinking you've got it better than your neighbors. Oh, the humanity.

I love being outside when I can. I grew up in the country, and love natural history. I am always trying to learn more. Being outside lets me clear the rat-race gunk out of my head. I love camping, fishing, hiking, floating the river (especially the Guadalupe), wandering around on a wildlife refuge, photographing whatever catches my eye, or basically any excuse to get away from it all.

Oh and to reassure you, I am about 90% cute and cuddly, mischievous, and adventuresome. It's just that the serious stuff tends to get in the way more when interacting with people.

So if you've actually read this far, I'm sure we'd get along fine.
What I’m doing with my life
Looking for work. Trying to find something to mesh my two passions: training and the bio sciences. Wish me luck.
I’m really good at
constantly surprising people about me. One minute they think I'm quiet and innocent, the next minute I'm getting uneasy glances at my maniacal giggling. People are either amazed that I am intelligent or surprised I can be incessantly silly at times. I relish those surprised looks that tend to get plastered on people's faces around me.

I can't tell you how many times people have expressed surprise that I curse. Not sure why. Fuck it.
The first things people usually notice about me
look I can pretend you'll notice my beautiful blue eyes or my grin, but I got curves everywhere. *EVERYWHERE* it's kinda annoying.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Ok I feel like this is getting cluttered, so I killed off a lot of shit in here. Allow me to give you my favorites, but please don't think I'm limited to this:

-Neil Gaiman
-Robin McKinley
-Malcolm Gladwell
-Archer (PAM!! <3<3<3<3)
-music (pretty much anything)
-food (I love a wide variety of foods, and am particularly interested in clean food)
Six things I could never do without
a deck of cards with appropriate scoring implements, music, books, a river to float down, stars, something to organize
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how everything is connected, and how if we could understand just a fraction of those connections, we could completely change our world as we know it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either finding trouble wherever I can or crashing the fuck out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I will not insta-judge you. Everyone gets a chance or three or a million, however I do admit I'm not always the most patient person.

Do with that what you will.
You should message me if
I'm pretty friendly, and can really only think of reasons you maybe shouldn't message me:

-you are *only* looking for a long term girlfriend (that's not really something I can offer!)
-you have a strong predisposition for typical gender roles - we probably won't get along
The two of us
