    Tell Us Something Interesting About Yourself:
    I'm currently searching for a job as an Elementary Educator/ Guidance Counselor or any job working with Children/Families. I currently work retail but am very much looking forward to... uh... NOT work retail EVER AGAIN!  I am also currently learning American Sign Language from various video courses, books, and the ABC Family show Switched at Birth (which, for ABC Family is surprisingly good!). My maternal grandfather had genetic nerve deafness, which obviously is hereditary. My mother is beginning to feel the effects of hearing loss, and I have had hearing troubles already in my lifetime. My experience communicating with my grandfather would have been so much easier if he and I knew sign, which seems so silly to think about because he just barely could be understood in English. All the same, I feel ASL would broaden my world with teaching, and with my own hearing impairments that I may develop in the future.

    Age: 24

    Significant Other's Age: 26

    What You Do: Photographer/Video store clerk. (A winning combo if I do say so myself)

    What SO Does: Journalist

    State of Relationship: Fan-freakin-tastic. Just got a new apartment together.

    How Long You've Been Together: A little over a year

    How You Met: Interwebz. 

    Wedding Date (if you're engaged/married): N/A, the only serious wedding discussion that have been made are that we want to do it and we like the idea of being married by an Elvis impersonator.

    Real Babies: 0

    Fur Babies: 4. It's a herd. 1 pitbull (Jane), 3 cats (Monster, Gozer, Amsterdam), tons of insanity and fur everywhere

    Loves:  Cooking/eating, music, photography, taking the pup for walks with SO, museum hopping

    Hates: people who talk on their cell phones at inappropriate times/in inappropriate places, cleaning the bathroom, when the dog eats out of the litter box, inconsiderate neighbors

    Pet Peeves: Lateness, inappropriate cell phone use (as previously mentioned), trying to have good conversations with close-minded people

    Hobbies/Activities: photography, reading, cat-wrangling, watching excessive amount of movies

    Favorite Thing About Your SO: Going to avoid the tacky "everything", or superficial "gingerness", and go with his passion. It manifests itself mostly in his workaholic tendencies, but I love that he really throws himself into doing what he loves. I'm the same way.

    Least Favorite Thing About Your SO: He can be a real grumpy mo-fo. Usually when tired, frustrated, or during one of his bi-monthly "I swear I'm going to quit smoking" days. He also can be super pessimistic.

    Describe Your Personality: obnoxiously talkative, generally laid-back, loyal, passionate, sort of crazy in a cat lady way
     
    Snark Level (1 [low snark] - 10 [high snark]): Somewhere between 7-9, depending on the day. I tend to hate everything 5/7 days a week, so it can reach a 10 under the right circumstances. 

    I've Been On TK Since: No clue how long. I lurked during my first engagement, so for most of 2007 then I quit. Lurking again since January for work, but I was lurking for entertainment reasons several months before that.

    How You Came to Be On TK: I was originally on TK a few years ago when I was previously engaged. I didn't come back for a few years after we broke things off, but I leapt in and signed up when my SO and I began discussing marriage in a non-joking manner. Which was pretty early in our relationship, because we were infatuated with each other and stupid. Now we just dig our lives enough to consider getting hitched.

    How I like my potatoes: Pretty much any way you want to serve them to me. Are you making me potatoes with butter, cheese and bacon on top? I'll ditch my SO and kiss the ground you walk on.

    Favorite book/author: The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera. I'm also a huge Camus fan and still love my favorite book from Childhood (The Little Price)

    Tell Us Something Interesting About Yourself:  I never outgrew walking on my tip toes. I got bullied mercilessly for it until high school, which is when I discovered that it made wearing heels relatively painless.

    What You Do: Student at LSU, studying Communication Disorders/Speech Therapy

    What SO Does: Student at LSU, studying Biology/Pre-Med 

    State of Relationship: Dating. We don't live together, but we stay together every night.

    How Long You've Been Together: 6 1/2 years

    How You Met: Grew up in church and school together. We were never really friends, but we had mutual friends and ended up hanging out at a football game our Freshmen year of High school. I remember thinking that I always thought he was quiet and kind of nerdy, yet he made me laugh the whole night.

    Wedding Date (if you're engaged/married): N/A

    Real Babies: 0

    Fur Babies: 1, Pug named Lillie (pic of Lillie in my avatar)

    Loves: Desperate Housewives, my pug, LSU football, painting my nails, reading, going to new restaurants 

    Hates: Theres not many things that I hate. Although, I do find girls who jump from guy to guy every night to be very obnoxious. Baton Rouge is full of those types of girls and I feel like they are constantly talking about their escapades. So I guess you could say that is something I hate.

    Pet Peeves: See 'hates.' I dont have any pet peeves, that I can think of. 

    Hobbies/Activities: I enjoy taking Lillie to the dog park. She has so much fun running around, and I have fun seeing my other dog-owner friends. SO and I enjoy hanging out with our friends and seeing concerts and small bands around town. 

    Favorite Thing About Your SO: He is really, really funny. He makes me laugh all day. Plus, he's extremely smart- which is very sexy. 

    Least Favorite Thing About Your SO: He thinks it's ok to re-use washcloths. Not just for one day, but for like, 3 days at a time. I'm constantly putting them in the dirty clothes hamper and he'll say "HEY that was clean" I'm like no, babe...it's disguisting. 

    Describe Your Personality: I tend to be up-tight or high strung at times. It's something that I'm working on. I think that I'm generally a friendly person and I really like laughing. I'm usually not good at understanding sarcastic people.

    Snark Level (1 [low snark] - 10 [high snark]): I guess medium snark...like a 5 or 6? 

    I've Been On TK Since: I'm not sure. January maybe? I'll have to check and then come back and edit.

    How You Came to Be On TK: I wanted to look at Bridesmaids dresses for a friends wedding, so I made an account.

    How I like my potatoes: I love mashed potatoes with brown or white gravy. I also like Potatoes Au Gratin.

    Favorite book/author: I love so many books and authors that I don't think I can choose. Lately I'm on a James Patterson kick. I love the mystery and suspense of his books, and they are so easy to read because of the short chapters.

    Tell Us Something Interesting About Yourself: I'm a terrible swimmer, and my parents have a pool, a house on the lake, and a boat. All of those things make me nervous.
