(Bonus points if you have over eight years of experience as a forklift operator.) Example 5: Straightforward and Down-to-Earth I'm a graduate of Texas Christian University, where I majored in Post-Modern Literature. 80% of the time you'll find me with my nose deep in a book (except on Sunday nights from 9 - 10 PM when Breaking Bad is on - GO HEISENBERG! Travelling is also a major passion of mine, and I spend a lot of my free-time planning out future adventures. I have an 18 month old german shepherd named Ringo - he unfortunately lost one of his legs in a car accident, but he's still the cutest thing on the planet!I would love to travel through South America sometime, especially Argentina. I love animals and hope to meet someone who shares this passion. she knows what she wants out of life and has her finances in check.
“I sing Bob Dylan in the shower and Robyn in the car” or “I lived in a houseboat for three months…until it sank.

During the day, I can be found sitting in an office cubicle, feverishing tapping my phone with hopes of getting a new high score on Candy Crush.
