I like to hit the gym a few times a week and go out to mellow dinners with friends as often as possible. I often am in bed pretty early Monday - Thursday, but on the weekends I like to have a little more fun. =) I enjoy hiking when the sun is shining and swimming when it is really hot. I love the beach and doing anything out doors. I am not a couch potato and feel like I am missing out if I don't do something each weekend outside my house.
I am going back to school for my PhD in the fall of 2012 because I decided to defer for a year. I want to work and earn some money so that I have a safety net. I want to go to school for psychology and hopefully become a forensic psychologist. Ideally I would like to work with kids only, but I am open to what school will open my eyes to.
I am kind of a dork sometimes and have a witty and sarcastic sense of humor. I enjoy laughing at myself and can't stand those who can't take a joke. I have a weakness for men who have large vocabularies (I told you I was a dork!) and like politics. I lean a bit to the left, but am pretty unique in my political views. There is no one party that really encompasses everything that I think and feel.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
My ideal first date would be going to sporting event (mostly because it would be outside) or comedy club, although I am open to doing just about anything.
