For someone who prides themselves on being a word-nerd, I seriously fail at describing myself. I am funny-ish and immature in that ‘If you leave me in a room with an action figure, I am going to play with it’ sort of way. I am sweet, honest, trustworthy and frankly, a little too bold sometimes. I could tell you that I'm a voluptuous Linux ninja and you should ph33r my 5killz, or that my nickname should be hadouken because I'm down-right-fierce, but these traits don't fully encapsulate who I am. I'm not perfect, not "too good to be true", but I work relentlessly to be something... extraordinary.
I can be a bit of a geek; I love table-top gaming, mostly getting together with friends and just having a good time. Honestly, if you knew me for a decade you'd never know how deep the rabbit-hole that is my nerddom goes. My interests are eclectic though, because I'm also a big fan of interior decorating, I love to cook, philosophize and write, and I pride myself on my homemaking capabilities.
I have a Gypsy's soul and aim to conquer the world one vacation, coffee shop, and bodega at a time. I've briefly explored the pacific coast of Costa Rica and traveled a bit of Asia, staying in Japan and then trekking my way into Thailand. I’m planning for a solo France/Ireland adventure later this year once work slows down a tad. And while I don't technically consider it "travel" I've been to every state with the exception of Alaska and Hawaii. Despite my wanderlust I have absolutely no sense of direction and you'll have to like this about me, or at least be amused when I ask if you're sure we're going the right way... for the dozenth time. Some things about me:
- I enjoy linguistics and communication (perhaps far too much).
- I would rather stay home and watch Anime or play co-op than go to a party.
- I can quote Firefly, The Simpsons, Family Guy, and Futurama at the drop of a hat! (And frequently do.)
- I enjoy wine tasting.
- I am not afraid of public speaking and occasionally moonlight as a college lecturer.
- I have a tattoo and plan on getting more; many more.
- I can swear like a sailor and tell the dirtiest jokes.
- I can talk technology, philosophy, and politics and will wax it with passion.
As for what I'm looking for? Someone with a sense of humor who is fun to be around; someone who won't find it odd when I talk about how defensible a place is in case of zombies (you would be surprised how often I get weird looks about that one). Someone who understands all about game night. I've been labeled a "free-spirit" on several occasions, though I believe that is merely a polite way of saying I'm chaotic; ideally I'd like to find someone who has a clear sense of self with ambitions for their future who is flexible enough to embrace my chaos. I hope to find someone whose passion for life and adventure rivals my own, so when I get that look in my eye they aren't afraid to just pack an overnight bag and hit the ground running.
In bullet-point format ideally I'm looking for someone who:
- Has a sense of humor.
- Is intelligent or well-spoken (INT or CHA, they can't *both* be dump stats).
- Is ambitious.
- Is family-oriented, honest, and loyal.
Good relationships are based on great friendships, so ultimately I'm looking for a friend who I can fall in love with. Overall I am the nicest thing that hasn’t happened to you; the fun girl with a strange sense of humor and little to no shame about it.
