So, the basics.....I love to laugh, particularly in response to ridiculously lame jokes. Life's way to short to sweat the small stuff. I'm "precocious", I experienced my mid life crisis(less) career change in my early 30s and I'm now a breath (aka dissertation) away from a PhD. I always thought I was a geek, turns out I'm actually a nerd (OkCupid tests are super valid and reliable so it must be true right?). The career change wasn't that surprising to those who know me well. I'm hyper-rational/logical and question everything, and have done so from an early age. I actually told my (older) brother there was no Santa when I was just barely 4 years old. I was playing Mrs. Clause in a play, and reasoned that if I could play Mrs. Clause, anyone could, so anyone could play Santa, and therefore it must be just a story. Thus began my early career of searching for hidden Xmas presents. My poor mother.
I love a challenge, and figuring things out for myself. If something needs to be done, I don't tend to wait for someone else, regardless of what it is, I just google it and see how it goes. So far my projects have ranged from learning how to knit a sweater for a friends baby, to installing a new dishwasher. Things usually work out.......eventually.
Something important to know about me....I'm Liberal. I mean, I'm liberal for a Canadian. Be warned, but don't worry, I haven't drifted so far to the left that I am a Socialist....yet. If you're extremely right leaning, I'd love to argue with you, but at some point that arguing tends kill any romance.
I'm spending a lot of time at the gym lately and making the time to cook. I recently re-learned how much easier it is to deal with a crazy schedule when you make time to take care of yourself first. It's apparently a very hard lesson to remember :)
