After a few months and a number of a non-Match dates later...(I decided to re-write this over, and write the things I was always afraid to admit)
My alarm clock is set at 5:30 am and by the time I get up, I’ve probably hit the snooze button about five times; I am not a morning person. I try to sleep in as much as I can. I take long showers; I don’t care! I get dress in 3 minutes, hair and makeup in 10 minutes. I drive to work and I have really bad road rage. I make a damn good smoothie/protein shake concoction. I need caffeine in the morning, I drink hot tea so I can function. I can eat the same thing over and over again for months! My daily reads includes New York Times, Fashion and Philly Blogs.
I enjoy an active lifestyle-working out has helped restore a sense of balance and harmony in my daily routine. I run at least 15 to 20 miles a week, sometimes more, if I’m training for a race. I’ve damaged both of my knees from Mixed Martial Arts, so I run a pretty slow pace- 10min/mile. Running clears my mind; Yoga keeps me grounded. I miss MMA-I have trained in Brazilian Jujitsu (white belt), Muay Thai and Krav Maga. I have my own gears. Last year, I bought Thai pads, Sparring gloves, Handwraps and a mouth guard, and Amazon recommended that I may also need a jockstrap:) I always have a late night treat (Chocolate Coconut Ice cream w/ Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups cereal) - while I watch TV: CNN, Fox29, ESPN, History channel, Seinfeld /Friends reruns and DVR (UFC fights). I read magazines or a book on my Kindle before heading for bed.
Coffee; People watching at the park; Meeting friends for Dinner; I look forward to Sunday Brunch (I always have Scrapple on the side); Sunday Mass; sometimes I sneak in a trip to NYC.
Vacation: Germany and Thailand will have to wait- I’m planning to drive cross country w/ my brother, this summer. He’s moving to LA. I love adventures--my life is enriched not by the places I've been to but the people I've met, and the lasting relationships I've made.
- My age gives me a certain kind of perspective and confidence that comes from life experiences, and mistakes I’ve learned from the past.
-I am loving, faithful, affectionate and a good listener, but I am also frank, direct and I’m not afraid to speak my mind.

-I have a tailor- I can’t stand clothes that doesn’t fit.
-Flea markets and Thrift stores are a lot of fun!
-I love to cook, but not so much baking.
-Cut-off Levis shorts are a weekend staple, especially in the summer time (as seen in my pics).
-I prefer Texting. I absolutely hate talking on the phone!
-Religion (Catholic) and Political views (Conservative)-Don’t even try to change me!
