I grew up in Charlevoix, MI, moved to Grand Rapids after I finished high school and have been here ever since. I go to GVSU and work second shift at an area hospital. Tends to make dating hard, but I would like to change that. I had my own place for about 4 years and absolutely loved it, then I moved into a duplex with a coworker/friend for a year to save money, and now I'm back on my own again.
Music is pretty much amazing. If I could listen to it 24/7, I would probably be completely fine with that. My taste changes with my mood. The presets in my car range from country, to rock, to hip hop, and a little bit of easy listening.
I love being outside and taking in the sunshine while I can. Tubing, beach, fishing, grilling, you name it. It's hard to enjoy the outdoors when you're in the city though because I grew up in the country, so I'm still catching on to that.
I am down to earth, sarcastic, and affectionate
Just go for it. I'm kinda shy, but open up once I get to know you and your reactions to things. I'm goofy, and like to laugh a lot.
UPDATES : I've made a lot of changes to better myself and get healthy again. On May 3, 2011, I made one of the most exciting and biggest life changes to date. I decided to have lap band surgery and get back to a happy and healthier me. I immediately began dropping weight, and after hitting the evil plateau, I'm back on track. I'm currently down 68lbs and counting!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I'm not too picky. I hate the typical dinner and a movie though. Let's do something crazy and spontaneous!
