I consider myself to be laid back, independent, thoughtful, and genuine. And of course, I love to laugh (I think including that line is a requirement now). I value a night at home every now and again, especially with the right company, but most times I prefer to be out living life. It doesn't matter if the plan is for trivia, music, or just watching the game, I like to keep busy. I have a great group of friends and love my family, even though they're all a little nuts. I'm happiest when everyone is together under one roof, being loud, laughing, drinking, and acting foolish.
I like to think I can handle myself in pretty much any social situation. I may not always be the life of the party, but I will definitely be at the party. I like trying out new places and different things (thanks, Groupon, for even allowing me to test out my glassblowing skills). My recently discovered favorite pastimes include stand-up paddleboarding, boxing, and painting.
I love holidays, birthdays, and celebrations of all kinds - basically any excuse to decorate, give gifts, and wear glow bracelets. Nothing pleases me more than exchanging Christmas stockings or goody bags filled with yo-yos, bubbles, pop rocks, and kid toys. I have a closet full of dressy clothes, heels, and sparkly things, but most days you'll find me in jeans and flip-flops, and if there's any sort of chill in the air, I will most definitely be sporting a well-worn sweatshirt.
I follow all the local teams, of course, but for me it's really all about football. I'm happy spending all day Sunday at a bar or a friend's house watching back to back games, and am excited that preseason is only a few weeks away. I love any sort of music, especially if it's live, even if I don't know the band. Doesn't matter the genre, I am always willing to give it a listen...even country. I like to travel, when time and money allow, and would love to find someone else who wants to roam around the world.
Now try not to let all this awesomeness intimidate you. I also talk too much, tell bad jokes and sometimes forget the punch lines, can't whistle, am more than a little bit clumsy, and live in fear of spiders.
As for you? I am far from perfect so wouldn't want you to be. Hopefully you will be kind hearted, intelligent, trustworthy, and a tad bit sarcastic. The rest we can figure out as we go.
