I am a history major with an education minor. I like reading, writing, watching TV and movies. I am in a leadership position in my sorority. I hope to graduate at the end of four years and get a job with the government as an analyst. I have a deep relationship with my family especially my baby sister. I have pretty eclectic tastes. I like most music, except hip-hop and edm, and I love reading especially fiction novels.
I have spent time overseas and explored the world. I want to go back and do Ireland, Greece, and Germany among others. So far Italy has been my favorite. Scotland was gorgeous and interning with the state department in Romania was a super cool experience.
I have a pretty firm relationship with God and it is important to me that the guy I am with is the same. I have certain standards for myself that my faith informs that are completely non-negotiable. I believe in both the necessity of church but also the importance of private practice.
I am very ambitious. I hope to have my masters degree, my student loans completely paid off, and own my own house by age 30. Maybe one day I will go for a Ph.D or I'll get another Masters in something other than History, but only time will tell. Point is I intend to be a lifelong learner. Learning isn't ended with education. I want to learn to be a wife and a mother and a sister and a friend. I also want to take up knitting and learn to cook more family recipes from my grandma. I am also the girl who always has a half read book in her purse and no makeup. Priorities you know! :)
I am pretty vivacious. I go through set periods though where I am more insular and then others where I am more outgoing. I'm not super into partying, but a pub (as in the one where you sit down and eat) is more my scene. I have an ever changing sense of humor where something will be funny one day and not the next. I also love slightly chilly weather the kind where it isn't really cold but you are more inclined to put on a sweater and cuddle. I'm not really emotional so usually when I say I'm fine I really am. I'm logical. Like Hermione Granger when she says "I'm highly logical which allows me to look past extraneous detail and perceive clearly that which others overlook."
I wouldn't say I am a hopeless romantic, but well I am a girl. Ideally, I want to wake up everyday and think I am getting married today. Because I believe that is what relationship is a continual choice to be together. A choice to love someone for their flaws AND their strengths. Also cuddling and hand-holding are awesome. Except at the movies, do the arm thing by all means, but do it in doses please! It hurts after a while. Communication also is key. The physical aspects are super nice don't get me wrong, but the emotional and intellectual aspects are just as awesome if not more so.
My favorite quote is by Jules Ellinger "There has never been a statue erected to the memory of someone who let well enough alone.”
Finally, if you find all of this interesting enough to contact me please don't say something like "Hey Sweetheart," "Morning Beautiful," or "Hiya Sexy". Comments about my physical attractiveness are nice and all, but I prefer to be known for my mind. Give me a little something to work with. I know you find me fairly pretty or you wouldn't have clicked on the picture; now show me you read my self-description.
My ideal first date is pretty casual, but unique. Movies or bowling would be okay, but it would be awesome if there is some more thought put into it. I would be cool to go to a high school/ college theater production, a poetry reading, or a sporting event would be different.
