About me: I enjoy the theatre, it's one of my main hobbies. I volunteer to do everything from work bar, to working backstage, to participating in a show. I'm also a Mummer. I enjoy sewing, scrapbooking, gardening, camping, skiing, being outdoors, dancing... I could probably keep listing for a while. I'm in the process of learning to shoot. I want to eventually be a stay at home mom to my children (I don't currently have children). Until then, I work a a tech aid to a geophysicist and run a childcare center.
I have some schooling in holistic medicine and enjoy that immensely. It also cuts down on visits to the doctor. It's amazing what you can treat at home. I use my essential oils for just about everything. I make my own body products so when I step out of the shower it smells like a spa.
Taste in music: I like a little bit of everything but mostly Texas country and the soundtracks to musicals. Putting my ipod on shuffle will result in musical whiplash. Currently on album repeat is the soundtrack to "Rock of Ages" - the stage play, not the movie. Although I enjoy both, I prefer the stage version. There were a lot of changes made to transition to a movie that I feel detract from the point of the show.
I talk, a lot.. I could write pages and pages here but this is not the place or the time..
I believe a first date should be somewhere you can talk. After all, the point of going on a date is to get to know someone. I believe it should be somewhere quiet enough to talk but slightly entertaining (like a restaurant with a bar) or if you're worried about an easy out, drinks at a restaurant at which point you can decide if you want to order dinner. I believe in being polite but also honest; really if you're done with the date just tell me: I'm a big girl. I guess really the point is I'm open to anything although it's hard to get to know someone at the theatre because you spend most of the date not talking. Be creative! or not, first dates especially should be either something intentionally in or intentionally out of your comfort zone. Doesn't really matter which, as long as you know and go with an open mind.
