Self-summaries are never easy but I will give this a try....
I have a lot going on and have many layers, while still being rather simple. I enjoy the simple things and can have fun in a paper bag. But I love a good adventure too.
I own a television, but it's never been turned on to watch TV.... just the occasional DVD, so if you quote a lot of movies or expect me to know producers, I might not get it. In the last week, I walked into or stood next to three "celebrities", but was only made aware when a friend pointed it out. What am I doing here in LA?
I listen to music all the time, but probably couldn't name a top 40 band or song (-do they still call it top 40)? I am outgoing and nice and will talk to anybody and can keep a conversation going for hours - but, I rarely divulge all that much about myself, because in an odd way, I am actually quite shy.
I like to think I am a mover and a shaker, but really I just have ants in my pants… or ADD – whatever you want to call it, I always have something going on – even when I don’t. Meaning, if I have nothing going on for the day, chances are, I will make something going on – I will go out for a hike, or a long drive, or a coffee on the beach. But I rarely just sit around with nothing to do.
I am currently enjoying exploring the city and learning my way around. I have been exploring Griffith Park a lot and it's my new playground. And I'm documenting all of it with photos which one of these days I will get around to downloading.
I am sweet, funny, and energetic.
I love my career as a nurse. I can let all my best qualities shine. I can be silly and fun. I can be challenged during intense periods, but keep my cool under pressure. I can relate to my patients on a very human level. I can make them laugh and hold their hand when they cry. I can make them understand the complicated by explaining it in lay terms. It's really quite selfish, because at the end of the day, I can feel pretty good about myself and what I'm doing in this world.
Books..... there are many, but Rain of Gold, and anything by Shakespeare.
Movies.... Amelie, City of Lost Children, Inglorious **stards, Princess Bride
Music..... The Clash, The Pixies, Johnny Cash, Rilo Kiley, Jenny Lewis, Wilco, Spoon, Elvis Costello, The Velvet Underground, Talking Heads, Devotchka, The Magnetic Fields, David Bowie. Almost anything you can play super loud in the car and feel no shame in singing along at the top of your lungs. And truth be told, it's ok to feel a little shame about it- when are you ever going to see that person again.
Food.... Sushi, veggies (although I do eat meat), cheese, is coffee in any food group?
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
A great first date might be coffee or drinks where we both really connect and maybe don't want the date to end too soon, but make plans to see each other again soon.
