Decided to redo this thing!I am 28 (as of writing) and I work in patient accounts in a hospital in the (not so) sunny southeast of Ireland. I am a graduate in theology and anthropology, and totes loved university—it was nerdtastic. And yes, I am a major league nerd and bibliophile. Deal with it! I will be returning to University to do a MA in comparative religion in 2017 with a goal to doing a PhD in 2018/2019 in the same.
Cutting to the chase—I am on this Website as there is a paucity of YSA in this country and an even greater paucity who share my interests and personality. My interests include theology, philosophy, biblical scholarship, anthropology, Star Trek, and reading a lot of books
Personality-wise, I am an ISTJ. I am strongly introverted, and it takes a while for me to get “comfortable” around another person, but once I spend quality/awesome time with someone, I tend to open up. I am also (as previously mentioned) nerdy, and make no apologies for that! Related to that, I am not much of a talker (at least initially), but am a great listener . . . except when someone raises the topic of theology and/or the Church—you won’t be able to get me to shut up. Just a friendly warning :)
The Church is very important to me. I have a firm spiritual witness of the LDS Church, and a “must” for a potential significant other is that they have one too and take it seriously (though not inerrantly/are not a fundamentalist vis-à-vis the Church). Calling-wise, I serve as a counselor in the branch presidency. Prior to that, I taught Gospel Doctrine in my previous branch (New Testament) and loved it (I got to discuss the New Testament and spread my love for Koine Greek!). I also run a blog dedicated on Mormon/biblical issues called "Scriptural Mormonism."
If you are still interested after reading the above, it probably means we have a lot in common already and hopefully you are a bit less introverted than I am and break the ice (see the “message” button above^ there you go . . . ;) )
