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'm not a big girly-girl...I don't wear make-up regularly and I feel more comfortable in jeans and t-shirt with a pony tail than a dress and heals with my hair done up. 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 - Israel is on the Asian continent but not really considered an Asian country) 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 recently got my dream job. Now that its getting warm out again, I'm spending a lot of time gardening and trying to get some stuff on the outside of my house fixed up. In my free time 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. I am also involved in the Jewish Federation and volunteer with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. 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.
