ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

You: Someone who's up for being friends first and seeing where things go. Because, at the end of the day, I'd like to be with my best friend. (Also, I like taking things slow in a world where everyone is busy and everything is rushed.) Someone who can play the straight man to a somewhat-goofy artist, yet someone who can also make me laugh. Someone who's not afraid to admit their flaws and improve on them.

Still reading? Good. 2 more things: 1) I am not actually a gourd lover. A friend's mother is a gourd expert; her gourd nerdiness gives me something to aspire to, only not with gourds. I actually *hate* the second word when spoken by, well, anyone not Will Ferrell in an SNL sketch. 2) There are a ton of bad usernames on here, so I figured I might as well hit that ball out of the park.

I grew up in a family that was largely military, and as such, value honesty and integrity more than anything and would rather be straightforward from the get go; hence, this novella. But at the end of the day, I'm just a girl who loves to laugh and enjoys spending time with my loved ones and isn't all weekend warrior all the time (snuggly naps/movies on the couch rule!). And while I'm admittedly awkward, I like to think that my awkwardness is part of my off-beat charm; maybe you'll agree.

Interests:
Coffee and conversation, Dining out, Gardening/Landscaping, Hobbies and crafts, Museums and art, Music and concerts, Exploring new areas, Political interests, Religion/Spiritual, Travel/Sightseeing, Volunteering, Watching sports, Wine tasting
Sports & exercise:
Basketball, Running, Walking / Hiking, Yoga
Exercise habits:
I exercise 3-4 times per week
Pets:
I have Cats
Pet Essay:

I have a cat who thinks she is a dog. Bonus points if you have an actual dog, not a psychologically-confused cat.

Political views:
Liberal
Sign:
Cancer
College:
I'll tell you later
For fun:

Reading books. Nerding out. Road tripping to nowhere. Long rambling conversations. Exploring dusty bookstores and estate sales. Amateur gardening. Learning. Making things. Taking photographs. I am also trying to teach my cat to high five, for reals.

Favorite hot spots:

Black Cat. 9:30 Club. My house. That place that is cool now, but no one knows about (it's fun to watch the hipsters). That place that was cool in 2010 (it's empty now, so it's cool again). Somewhere near water.

Favorite things:

The cool old people selling things at farmer's markets. The seaside in winter. Growing things on my balcony. Live music. Wild ponies. Early mornings. My morning cup of coffee. Forgotten museums. That moment right before falling asleep. Belly laughs.

Last read:

The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon. What is the What. The River of Doubt: Theodore Roosevelt's Darkest Journey. National Geographic. Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopedia.
