Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Things you might need to know about me, or rather might be
interested to know about me:
-I don't like cheese. I don't mind pizza, but only from pizzerias,
and even then some pizza can have more cheese than I can
-I majored in literature, but I'm terribly ill-read [It's not that
I don't enjoy reading, its just must easier, in my down-time, to
watch a movie, as I have so much assigned reading for school] [Not
that I am not in school and reading as much, I have found myself
falling back in love with it.]
-I don't do small-talk. I jump right into getting to know people or
the heart of whatever matter might be on my mind.
-Stars give me a sense of peace and tranquility like almost nothing
else I know
-I love being in or near bodies of water. I don't know why, but I
have noticed the trend. I suspect there is also a sense of
tranquility around the water, that it can be peaceful but also full
of activity and unknown treasures and who knows what else?!
-I talk to myself and inanimate objects on a regular basis.
[Sometimes I greet flowers, or apologize for bumping into tables,
or chide myself for making a mistake]
-I think those daisies that you find growing all over the place
that are apparently weeds are the prettiest flowers
-I still pick up dandelions and blow all the seeds off of them when
I see them and I still try to get honey from honeysuckles
-I enjoy Disney movies because they have happy endings.
-Love is my religion.
-I cannot wait to be a mommy. As much pain as I've seen my own
mother endure, and other mothers, I still look forward to the day I
have my own children.
-I truly believe that love is all we need.
-I don't really like the taste of alcohol
-If it were socially acceptable, I would wear my pajamas
everywhere, all the time.
-I am EXTRAORDINARILY sarcastic.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just entered into my career as a high school English teacher. So
far, I have taught 9th and 10th graders.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I would like to think that I am pretty good at reading people. I am
certainly a very loyal friend and would do just about anything if
someone, anyone, needs me.
Also really good at sarcasm.
The first things people usually notice about me

I suspect people often hear me before they see me, hopefully they
noticed a relatively intelligent, humorous, allbeit loud, girl.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

As a literature major and English teacher, I am surprisingly
-I only recently read the Harry Potter books and loved those.
-The Shack by William Young and just though it did a wonderful job
of portraying what an encounter with God might be like. -Most
things by Ellen Hopkins, a young adult author who writes her novels
in free verse poetry.
-Fault in our Stars by John Green
-The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
-Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
-The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
-I, Tituba, Black Witch of Salem by Maryse Conde
-The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfeild
I love watching movies. But I love watching the same 20 movies that
I know I love. I tend to stick to animated movies because they have
happy endings. Romantic comedies are unrealistic. Action films are
just a series of explosions and passion. Horror movies are just
things jumping out at you and death. I enjoy comedy, but smart
comedy: Mel Brooks comedy, British humor comedy. Not some of the
stupid, boy humor, crude humor comedy. I literally could not finish
watching Step Brothers or Pineapple Express.
-All Disney Movies
-All Pixar Movies
-Most Dreamworks Movies
-Musicals (Chicago, Rent, Grease, Annie, etc)
-Classic 80s and 90s films (Breakfast Club, Teenage Mutant Ninja
Turtles 1,2, and 3, Goonies)
-Harry Potter Movies
-The Other Guys
-Horton Hears a Who
I try to keep up with Saturday Night Live because it keeps me
slightly update on current events, although recently its been
unimpressive. I love Psych and if I ever get a Netflix account I
will be watching a lot of that. And then I love the typical crime
shows although I dislike some of the spin-offs.
-CSI (Las Vegas)
-Law and Order: SVU
-Stand-up via Comedy Central
I hate this question, my favorite kind of music, mostly because I
don't know how to answer it. I enjoy Mumford and Sons and the
artists that show up on my Mumford and Sons Pandora Playlist.
Mellow-ish? I don't know. I enjoy Regina Spektor and Adele. I enjoy
oldies. I enjoy listening to whatever is on the radio. I'm not too
picky. I think I just don't like anything too extreme. Pure
screaming is probably not for me. Certain rapping that uses a whole
lot of negative language to not say that much is also probably not
for me. Country music that has so much twang I cannot understand
it, probably not for me.
Food. I always feel like I'm pretty easy and I'll eat everything,
but apparently that is not quite true. I love all the things that
are bad for you. And I prefer vegetables raw, rather than cooked
and squishy (a texture thing, I guess). And I don't like cheese. Or
mushrooms. Or just straight onions. Or celery. So that's it really.
Love all meats and fishes. LOVE sweet potatoes. I'm pretty sure I
could sufficiently survive off of little else than sweet
potatoes...and maybe peanut butter...and bananas. I enjoy spinach
salads with craisins and almonds/walnuts. I guess I'm just not all
that adventurous when it comes to food.

to answer. Somedays I have conversations with myself. Most nights I
struggle to turn my brain off.
