My motto: I'd rather play than be a spectator. Well, except for rugby and hockey. Those are damn fun sports to watch. Rugby is 24/7 on African local TV, hard not to appreciate the athleticism. Cheerleading was outlawed in my family (n=8), "why watch when you can play?" is what my pops said. It happily stuck.
I moved to Atlanta seven years ago (from Wash D.C.) for grad school. My likes: Cross Fit, dog parks, conjuring friends for Spades, Canasta, Egyptian Rat Screw, any sports-oriented groups (most recently bocce ball), and of course trivia happenings. I'd love to learn disk golf; never played. I supremely enjoy hitting a ball with strings. Tennis has superseded soccer in recent years. To sum myself up; I prefer activity, or any enriching experience over the usual. I like to be challenged.
I work in global public health and really appreciate having a job where tangible outcomes are somewhat realized ;). Traveling is both a benefit and a challenge. I get to go to places I couldn’t pronounce before I get on the plane. Here’s a fun fact: I’ve been to more countries than U.S. states. Thailand most recently, but my mainstay is the motherland - Africa (no creationism here). On to Dar Es Salaam, Zanzibar and Johannesburg in late Nov and early Dec.
I’d love to cover more ground both domestically and abroad with a similarly adventurous partner. About that partner: I’m looking for a man (key word: man) with a healthy sense of confidence with well-articulated goals, one who truly enjoys new experiences. Oh and humor! A quick wit is extremely attractive. Intelligence and humor are important to me. Bonus points for the ability to tie your own shoes, knowledge of the bicameral system, and lives near a MARTA stop. OTP is just too far.
