I find it's hard to write about yourself because the qualities you are proud of may not always be the qualities that other people like the most about you.
I am a bubbly person, I get excited easily and sometimes my carefree attitude borders on careless. I don't always think ahead and I'm really forgetful about some things, but I still have a good head on my shoulders. Some days I live with my head in the clouds - I'm a dreamer looking for an outlet. I spend a lot of time inside my own head, thinking about the world and life in it.
Dreamer tendencies aside, I take pride in my intelligence and independence. Implying that I am not smart or not good at something is the easiest way to get on my bad side. I have my down points like every other person but it's hard for me to let others in and depend on them to pick me up again, even though I have a habit of being everyone else's shoulder to lean on.
I'm an odd mix between a socialite and a nerd. I love going out, being around people and partying from time to time but I'll also hole myself away for a weekend playing video games (and not your silly sports games or shooters, they don't count). Which one I prefer depends a lot on my mood and who I'm with. I've yet to find a guy who is a little bit of both and I guess I really just want someone that will keep up with me no matter what side I channel.
At my heart, I'm a little bit of a southern belle because that's how I was raised, but I chose to leave my hometown and find a place where my ideas, thoughts and opinions weren't constantly frowned upon for being radical. So here I am.
All I've been doing for the last year is soul searching and trying to better myself.
I took a break from college starting in December '11 because I woke up one day and realized I wasn't where I wanted to be and I hadn't accomplished anything that made me happy in the last four and a half years. I thought I would be back in school by now, but for a lot of reasons, I've decided to put it off a little longer. I don't want to waste my time or my money on uncertainty.
I currently work at Disney World full time, which is not as magical as you'd think. It's taught me a lot that I never expected, but it's not where I want to be five years from now either.
I'm mostly focused on becoming a happier, healthier me. I go to the gym, I eat healthy food and I surround myself with positive people. I don't have room in my life for people and things that just want to drag me down.
Right now, I don't know where my future is taking me so I'm just living in the present.
* I'm not looking for a hook-up, so if that is your intention, move right along and don't bother with a message. I don't waste my time with boys looking to play games.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I like to be surprised, but one thing I absolutely will not do is go to a guy's house on the first date. No Ifs, Ands, or Buts. If you ask me to, I will probably start ignoring your messages.
