I'm moving to a cute little house on a lake in Gardner in a few months, and I don't know anyone out there. I was hoping to find some new friends here on OKC!
I graduated with my BA in History and a minor in Arabic Studies in May. A few weeks later I gave birth to my son. I'm a new mom, but I promise I won't let my son dominate the conversation. He's the most important thing in my life but I never liked when parents only talked about their children, and I vowed never to be "that mom". I've never posted on FB about my son's bowel movements, and I never will.
We're moving on a piece of land with about four acres. I'm super excited to have all that land to garden and build on. I can't wait to eat my own freshly grown, organic food next spring and summer. I've worked at a garden center for nearly seven years, and I have experience with vegetable gardens, but I'm super excited to have the space to finally build a three-sisters garden. My ultimate goal would be to live completely off my own land, but I don't think I'm in the position or zoning to do that yet. I'm also hoping to build an archery range and an adult obstacle course, something Tough Mudder styled.
Going on a health-food-only diet and then baking a banana bread and proceeding to eat almost the entire loaf ;)
Shows: I'm a huge Mad Men fan but didn't get into the series until a few months ago. I also love Battlestar Galactica, Orange is the New Black, Firefly, Arrested Development, and Desperate Housewives.
Movies: Do Documentaries count as movies? I'm often watching either a historical, political, or social documentary on Netflix.
Food: Indian, Middle Eastern, Mexican, and junk food. I'm also in love with Trader Joe's Caesar Salad and gluten free JoJos
Books: I love reading historical fiction. I'm in a book club which has opened my eyes to new books I never would have read, but historical fiction is still my #1.
I also often find myself in deep discussions about theoretical physics. I don't have a science background, but I'm deeply fascinated about this stuff. I love thinking about complicated issues that are hard to wrap my head around. I could stare for hours into space and just imagine what's up there. I'm not saying I would be one of the people who volunteers for that one-way trip to Mars, but I'm certainly in love with the idea of exploring outer space.
I find myself on subreddits like /r/Glitch_in_the_Matrix and /r/TheTruthIsHere. They're mainly about paranormal happenings and encounters with the unknown. Though my science-y boyfriend teases me for buying into this stuff, I still love the chill I get down my spine when reading those stories. If that stuff sounds interesting to you, just add www.reddit.com in front of the /r/ part and check it out for yourself!
