One of the best compliments i've ever received was from a friend who said I'm the only person she knew that that could talk about anything. I've always considered myself a jack of all trades, so I was excited to hear her say that.
I'm competitive in anything I have a passion for, whether that be cooking, sports, or even staying healthy and in shape, which probably comes from being the youngest of 4 boys (the fight for attention thing...) It's less about being a perfectionist or a know-it-all and more about being inquisitive. If I'm going to spend an hour cooking dinner, why not make it taste great? If I'm going to run every day, why not try to eat a lil' healthier (minus the Pinkberry addiction...)? And growing up, if I was going to play sports, why not work hard at it?
So I did and went to UNewHampshire to play soccer, which was cool until I got hurt and stopped playing.
That would've sucked, but fortunately I learned to sing and play guitar and piano, and now I have a CD on iTunes, which makes me about $9 a year and my mother proud... so it's merely a hobby. I still play and with a new CD coming out soon, i'll be looking to play out in Boston a lot this summer.
And fortunately, with my sales job, I have summers completely off and only work in the spring and fall (and a bit in the winter.) It's a pretty sweet deal.
I don't know where my extreme nerdism comes from, but it's there. I've read Twilight (well written, but way too sappy), know who Katniss is (as do a lot of people nowadays,) and would pay good money for J.K. Rowling to write another 1000 page book. Oh, and I have a bit of an addiction to Game of Thrones. To be fair, I pretty much read any book that's gong to come out as a show or movie and that sometimes leads to me feeling like a high school girl.
I have a great family and group of friends that I see constantly. There's not much I wouldn't do for any of them (and vice versa.) And while I have my favorite places to hang out around Boston, I'm a huge fan of trying new things and places. There is, however, also something great about staying in with a remote and a bottle of wine.
By far, for me, there is nothing I enjoy more than seeing a live show. I'm a big music fan and am always on the lookout for catching a show at the Middle East, Paradise, or HOB before the bands blow up (although there's nothing wrong with grilling in the parking lot of the Comcast Center and seeing a great band, like I did a couple times this summer.)
Another favorite pastime of the summer is Sox games. I'm fortunate enough to have season tickets (which I use for work) and usually go to a few games a month. Bud Light, sunshine, and greasy food... good times.
Anyways, I hope you're still here. I'd love to meet somebody on this site. I know too many people that have met people through Match, and I'm not down with waiting to meet somebody, or hoping to run into somebody at a bar. Shoot me an email or wink if you're interested in talking! Don't be shy!
