Hey there! My name's Elaine, and it's nice to meet you! Yeah, I'm a nerd - into anime, video gaming, Star Wars - you name it and I've probably stood in line for a midnight release of it! I travel to conventions throughout the South and they're the highlights of my year!
When I'm not busy finding something new to watch on Crunchyroll or ridding the universe of Jedi scum, I'm a Nursing student, wondering what came over me that day I decided to enroll! But, I remember that everyone deserves amazing patient care and I trudge through the medical texts for the greater good of my future patients and myself.
I'm a little bit of a traditionalist when it comes to love. I'm looking to take things slow because I would love to form a deep connection with you and learn everything about you. I don't want us to feel pressured into anything, however, and I could really use more friends in my life; although, it would also be great to find a partner to grow with, learn from, and have with me through this whirlwind of endless adventure and opportunity.
What I'm doing with my life:
Trying to survive Nursing School. Being able to list off bones and muscles is super important, apparently.
Working as a private caregiver to someone with special needs. At times, this work can be taxing and tiresome (I'm only human after all), but it's also rewarding and humbling.
Trying to eat a little better and get up and moving more. So far I've cut out tea, soda, sweets, and snacks. I think I may die. Starting to play DDR on the regular for exercise. Much excite! And Pokemon Go making me walk at least 3 miles almost every day, haha!
I'm really good at:
-Baking! Homemade cookies (Yes, from scratch!) and I want to get better at making cakes. Watching the smiles radiate over people's features while they take that first bite is why I started dabbling with baking in the first place. (And Gordon Ramsay inspires me to also learn how to be a chef.)
-Video gaming. Hand-eye coordination on point. I always wonder if I could be the female Markiplier if I had the time, lol.
-Singing (in the car.) Let's sing a duet while sitting in traffic! Do you want to be Sonny or Cher?
-Representing Ravenclaw (with Slytherin tendencies.) Intelligence. Wit. Wisdom. Creativity. Originality. Individuality. All traits of a Ravenclaw, but I can be mischievous too and have a little possessive streak when I feel my friends and family are being harmed in any way. There's also my "naughty" side.
-Catching the references you make. I'm just too nerdy for my own good ;3
-Finding that silver lining in any bad situation. Life is too short to stay focused on whatever awful things have happened to us. "Ah yes, the past can hurt. But, we can either run from it or learn from it!"
-Rolling a Critical Miss at the worst possible moment because that's just how my luck in playing D&D is. We.. don't talk about the time my bow string snapped and rendered my character blind and the chaos that followed.
