Decided to redo this thing!I am 29 (as of writing) and, until recently, worked in medical accountancy. Now I am back in education to get fully qualified as an accountant in my hometown in the southwest of Ireland.
I originally graduated in theology and anthropology, and totes loved university—it was nerdtastic. And yes, I am a major league nerd and bibliophile.
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 :) Once I "warm up" to another person, however, and begin to trust them, I tend to open up more easily (typical introvert trait).
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 to 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^ :P )
