My favorite type of people tend to be those who appreciate banter and sarcasm as much as deep conversation and are recklessly passionate about whatever it is they do. I enjoy discussing social issues, playing soccer, badass timpani rolls, green vegetables, TV dramas, Golden Age musicals, running long distances while listening to good music, Pittsburgh, and feminism.

The six things I could never do without
A park to run in
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How fun it would be to live in the universe of a Woody Allen film. Why flannel instantly makes all men more attractive. Should I go to law school. How can people not believe in climate change. So people really not like me or am I just being paranoid. How much I wanna be Mindy Kaling when I grow up. Why can't we all just get along. How far am I from a decent bagel.
