I am shy and quiet at first, but once I get to know someone/a group of people, I am very outgoing and talkative. I'm not a big phone person, so if I text instead of calling, don't be offended. I love to do things outdoors such as hike or go canoeing even though I hate bugs/spiders/snakes. I also love to travel, whether it be in the US or abroad, my goal is to make it to all 7 continents. I've already got 4 (technically 5) out of the 7. I'm not a big sports fan but I try and make it to a couple Purdue football games every year and watch the others. Although if I'm watching a sport with someone who can explain it to me, I tend to get interested in the game/match. I work in the pharmaceutical/biote ch industry and love my job, especially days I spend all my time in the lab. I recently bought a house in the broad ripple area so most of my free time is taken up by trying to get everything where I want it, pictures on the walls, and repairing all the things I'm finding that I didn't notice when I looked at the house. I'm also spending a lot of time gardening and trying to get the outside fixed up now that it is warmer out. Even with the things that need to be fixed though, I love the house and the area. When I'm not at work or working on the house, I like to hang out with friends, read, play with my dog and cat, do some crafty stuff, watch tv, or go out on the weekends. Family is very important to me and I try to spend time with them at least once a week. If there is anything else you want to know, just ask.
