My name is Patricia. I'm originally from Illinois, lived there all my life until 2012. Because of this, I still don't know many people around here (it's hard to meet people after college!). I am a very loving person, and I like to help those around me. I am a t.v. junkie, a grammar nazi, and know how to play the clarinet and bass clarinet. I enjoy reading, playing board games, playing Terraria and the Sims (I wrote a song about Terraria to the tune of "Bad Moon Rising" by CCR... that's how much I like that game lol), watching movies, exploring places, etc. Sarcasm is like a second language to me.
I graduated with my B.S. in math from U of I in Champaign, IL. I wanted to be a high school math teacher, but it didn't work out. I am an underwriter for a mortgage company. Despite it not being my dream job, I have learned a lot, and see it as my lifelong career.
I'm looking for all the typical things; someone kind, smart, honest, attractive, etc. Nerdy tendencies are a plus. And if you are a tv junkie like I am, we are basically meant to be.
Favorite TV Shows: Game of Thrones, I.T. Crowd, Dexter, Grey's Anatomy, Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, The Simpsons, American Dad, Desperate Housewives, The Guild, Death Note, Firefly, Breaking Bad, Flight of the Conchords, Hell's Kitchen, Master Chef, King of the Hill, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Gilmore Girls, Empire, House of Cards, Better Call Saul, Flip or Flop, Seinfeld, The Cleveland Show, and many, many more.
