Let's see...... how about ten words:
talented (is that too prideful to say?)
(And, if we're being honest, a wee bit) scared
Other than that...I love to meet new people and I'm new to the area.
More? Oh, alright then. I'm AJ. I was born and raised in Utah though I've lived several other places and as my parents are both from Oregon I consider that my second home. I have a relatively large family that I adore including 10 nieces and nephews to whom I am, by far, the best auntie ever! I have a wide variety of interests and hobbies that include but are not limited to singing, dancing, drawing, reading, hiking, climbing, biking, and photography. I love visiting and exploring new places as well as meeting new people. I love being around people especially the positive, kind and humorous variety.
What else...hmmmm... I'm currently attending the University of Maryland in the quest for my second master's degree in set design. My first was in architecture from the University of Utah and while architecture is still pretty awesome, I've realized that it's not what I wanted to do with my life. What I want most of all is to be a mother, but until that happens I'm taking steps in that direction while continuing to pursue my dream of designing sets. I know I'm where I am supposed to be and doing what I'm supposed to me doing and it feels great.
As far as what I'm looking for, I think it's kinda the same thing everyone is looking for: their eternal companion, the one they are meant to be with. For me that would be someone who is close by, kind, considerate, dedicated, loyal and also fun, intelligent, happy, loving and, preferably, hilarious. If you can make me laugh and get me to joke along side you, I'm half-way in love with you already. I really want to be with someone who loves me as I am and for who I can be. I want to feel lucky to be with him and hope he feels the same way about me. I would hope it goes without saying as this is an LDS site, but I'm also looking for someone who is strong in the church. The gospel is incredibly important to me. It is an essential part of my personal well-being and happiness and I can not live without it in my life. Being with someone who feels the same way and understands that part of me makes all of that so much easier. I'm not perfect, no one is, I've made just as many mistakes as the next person but I know that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me and wants me to be happy and to live with Him for all eternity, and that's what I want too.
If you're interested, drop me a line.
Have a great day and thanks for checking me out ;).
