Currently I am a full time student who is on track to graduate in the spring of 2017. My post undergraduate plans are to continue for a master's in History, with plans to continue for a doctorate, and a beyond that a tenure track as a professor of History. I returned to school to better myself, and have a wider choice of careers after I get my B.A., which means I may/may not have time to go out every single weekend. Homework has a high priority (but it will not be that way forever). I enjoy learning and have missed academia since I dropped out in the late nineties (was burned out and tired of being broke). I have 2 semesters of German so far, with two more to meet the degree requirement. I worked at a major transportation firm for nearly nine years before I decided that I wanted my life back and after having a go-nowhere job I re-enrolled in school.
There are no children, crazy stalker ex-girlfriends/wives, drugs, or drama in my life. I would like to have kids in the near future as I feel having a good paying job to support them is a requirement. Bill collectors are not beating a path to the door on my residence. Mechanical things fascinate me; I perform my own car repairs, and change a tire long before AAA shows up. Avid reader (more like devourer) of 4-5 books a month (lately they have been adventure/mystery, history of technology and fiction). I do not hunt, but do target shoot on occasion.
Trombone player in three community bands now, and I have been playing for a total of fifteen nonconsecutively years now. Pop music is not my style as it all sounds the same to me, nor am I able to pick out Lady Gaga (or any of the Kardashian's too) in a line up should my life depend on It. lol. Not a follower of any sports teams, as I never could get into them, however I do know enough about them to follow a game and cheer at appropriate times.
Tattoos are wearable art works along with piercings, and multiple hair colors (especially when the light hits them and you can see all the subtle, hidden shades). Curves are preferred, but am not fussy as smarts trump beauty every time. Despite society telling me blonde-haired women are more fun, I prefer redheads and brown-haired women. Cheating and games conflict with my moral code, unless its Monopoly, then all bets are cancelled ;-).
Should I have kept your interest throughout my ramblings, please feel free to drop a line. My ego will not be bruised if you make the first move. If your attention has not been maintained, I wish to thank you for taking the time to check out my profile, and wish you the best of luck in your quest.
My preferred first face to face meeting would be in a public place and over a meal. I am not opposed to a tavern, as long as it's a quiet enough place to converse without yelling. I shall save the romantic ideas for a later time. ;-)
