**Update 12/26/12: I’m currently out of school at the moment, working to save money to go back to a better school (shooting for FSU). So in the meantime, I’ve turned into a workaholic to try to save. If you have any tips on how to become a millionaire overnight, please share.** ;)
Unfortunately, at the current moment, work takes up a lot of my time. I work 7 days a week at two jobs, one of which I hope to leave as soon as possible for the better paying one. I’ve been at my old job for about 3 and a half years, but it’s kind of a dead end. I like the work itself, and the people I work for, but in the long run it’s just not lucrative. In the little bit of spare time I had over the summer, I tried to spend it at the beach. Recently I found a great place to go hiking, but I’d love to find some new places to go since I made it to the end of that trail and back a few times now. When I’m not working, I tend to get bored easily and don’t stop moving until I’m completely exhausted. When I do get completely exhausted, sometimes I like to veg out and watch some of my favorite TV shows. In general, though, I feel guilty about watching too much TV. It makes me feel unproductive, but sometimes it’s the perfect way to spend a lazy day. I don’t work out regularly, but I stay in pretty decent shape by always staying on the move and not eating garbage. Both of my jobs involve a lot of walking. And “a lot” is probably a huge understatement, haha. Did I mention I’m open to foot rubs?
I’m outgoing, independent, and looking for the same in someone else. What I’m looking for is someone who has a high sense of adventure with a positive attitude, and who is highly motivated about life in general. One of my favorite sayings is, “I’ll sleep when I’m dead.” Overall, I'm looking for someone with goals, who wants to have an education and be successful (if you’re not already). I’m into pretty nerdy/geeky stuff, and that tends to be the type of person I’m attracted to. I’m also looking for someone who can keep me intellectually stimulated, or at least tries. You don’t have to have a college degree to have an intelligent conversation. Just shoot from the hip, be honest and straightforward, and don’t waste my time, that's all I’m really asking for. Most of all, have a sense of humor. ;)
Other basic stuff about me: I like mostly rock music (Korn, Tool, Deftones, Pantera, etc). Some hip hop, some R&B, some country, but at the end of the day, it’s always rock that gets me going. I’m a huge Zelda fan. Like, huge. One of my friends pointed out that almost everything I own has a Triforce symbol on it (I even have a Triforce tattoo…). I’m also a big fan of the Big Bang Theory, Dexter, Bones, Fringe, Lie to Me, True Blood, Grey’s Anatomy (this show is not gay, it’s awesome), Harry Potter (also not gay, awesome), and Ayn Rand (do you know who John Galt is?).
"Man—every man—is an end in himself, not a means to the ends of others; he must live for his own sake, neither sacrificing himself to others nor sacrificing others to himself; he must work for his rational self-interest, with the achievement of his own happiness as the highest moral purpose of his life." | The Ayn Rand Column ‘Introducing Objectivism’

Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
First dates should never be same. I would not like to do something I've done on a past first date when going on a new first date, but dinner does seem to be the thing to do. Who doesn't like dinner? :) Someplace with a laid back atmosphere would be ideal, where we could just have a conversation and get a perspective on what the other person's interests are.
Of course dinner should either be a beginning of a date and lead to something more fun, or should follow up something fun that already happened. Anything is possible, but outdoor activities always seem to be the most adventurous and exciting. :)
