I love living here in Washington D.c. I love the city, the chance for my job, the sincere, "Zion East" feel at church and the endless opportunities to indulge my favorite hobbies (museums, art, movies, school, bike-riding).
I am only interested in guys close enough to date in person. I am not interested in anything long distance.
I love watching movies and talking about cinema and while these often overlap (yay for Baz Luhrman and Oscar season!), I must admit I saw both Music and Lyrics and 27 Dresses twice the weekends they opened.
My calling in church right now is to be a ward missionary, which is gloriously more fun when there are investigators at church, which there are right now. I've usually been an RS or Sunday School teacher before, so I suppose this is my chance to dust off the open heart and say hello to strangers. It's scary every time but it's always worth it.
I grew up in Texas with three brothers, but I have friends I've had for so long I've secretly adopted them as sisters. Since my mother died, I've stayed close to my dad and my brothers. I love to rove the world, and one of the best parts is being able to call my father or my brothers or friends and share with them my adventures.
When I'm out of school, I watch BBC television on DVD, hang out with friends, go to the gym, and read everything I can. While in school, I go to class in the evening and haunt libraries reading about Roman history before running out in search of social interaction. I'm not sure what I'll do with my MA in Latin when I get it, but I'm very much enjoying the process of obtaining it.
Hmm...other key words: oil painting, old bookstores filled with old books, travel, mountain bikes, politics as a spectator sport, Doctor Who, scriptures, friends, grace
I think the best of romances contain a strong element of friendship and respect in addition to a warm and fuzzy mutual attraction. I would like to meet somebody who is interested in someday getting married in the temple and having a family.
Intelligence, honesty, and greatness of heart are very important to me. If that's you, I'd love to hear from you.
