Today I went shopping for stripper shoes, Leftover Crack/Choking
Victim records, and grapefruit spoons; that's probably all you need
to know about me.
What I’m doing with my life
I live in South Austin, and I am currently squandering my degree. I
generally make my own schedule, and I love the freedom that offers
me. My priority right now is enjoying life; I’m all about the
fun-tivities, good food and drink, and great friends. I’m sure I’ll
be in the market for a real job soon, but I guess I’m just waiting
for inspiration to strike. While I’m enjoying all Austin has to
offer, I’m not sure I’m here for the long haul. I wouldn’t say I
have the wanderlust, but with so many great places to call home,
it’s hard to imagine staying in one place for too long.
I’m really good at
I’m really good at a variety of things one should discover in due
time. I can say I’m great at making small talk, but I think for the
purposes of OKC, I’d rather have more meaningful conversations, I
guess I’m alright at that too though. I’m really best with my
words: talking, writing, what have you. I also make pretty great
cappuccinos, smoothies, pasta salads and cocktails. Oh! And I might
make the best terrible "your mom" jokes you've ever heard.
The first things people usually notice about me
The first thing people usually notice about me tends to be either
my eyes or my smile. Physicality aside, I’m talkative and have an
opinion on just about everything.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This is by no means a comprehensive list:
Books: I love Hunter S. Thompson, Hemmingway, Vonnegut, David
Sedaris, John Waters and Chompsky. I’m embarrassed to admit I
really enjoyed the Hunger Games. I’ve had a lot of fun lately
rereading those High School required reading books like Catcher in
the Rye, 1984, Brave New World, Wuthering Heights, and Heart of
Darkness. One of the best nonfictions I've ever read is Please Kill
Me, and every once in a while, nothing hits the spot like a memoir.
Just finished The Reason I Jump; read it.
Movies: Trainspotting (most Danny Boyle), Fear and Loathing in Las
Vegas, Pulp Fiction, Evil Dead 2, Amelie, The Act of Killing, John
Waters flicks, all those Disney Classics I grew up on, the Brat
Pack ‘80’s movies, and just about any comedy (although most of them
are only worth watching once).
T.V.: The Office, Sherlock, The Walking Dead, Futurama, The Daily
Show, Workaholics, Planet Earth, MST3000, Adventure Time, No
Reservations, How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory,
Music: Punk, ska, folk, so many great bands, don’t know where to
start so I won’t, but I’d love to talk about it one on one.
Plus I freakin love NPR, but not the music, just the talky
Im pretty sure my spirit "animals" are: Erik Petersen of Mischief
Brew, Jon Stewart, and Martha Stewart.
The six things I could never do without
1. Obviously the people I love: my family and friends
2. Good food and drink and a lot of coffee.
3. The occasional visit to the adirondacks in the fall.
4. My car; nothing’s more freeing than being able to hit the gas
and be miles away in no time
5. Divey bars
6. My cell phone (I don’t even use it that much, but I always panic
a little when I forget it)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Death and taxes. Well, maybe not taxes, but finances. Crippling
student loan payments are easily the biggest stress in my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
I’m all about going out on week nights. Sunday through Wednesday
are my jams, so come Friday, if I’m not working, I like to lay low.
There’s nothing better than a small get together with good friends
and a few cocktails. If friends do want to go out we never go to
dirty 6th. The East side or Rainey Street are a lot more fun and I
don’t feel like throwing elbows.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I probably get rejected more than anyone you've ever met, and I'm
not sure anyone has ever truly loved me for who I am.
You should message me if
You should message me if you’re looking for a genuine connection,
and maybe a partner. If you love to talk and can have fun in all
sorts of places from class to scary trash and you get down with
soaking up some culture or adventuring I’d love to hear from you.
You should also hit me up if you enjoy making people smile, or
laugh, or whatever, just happy. It also bares mentioning that I’m
no stick figure, I have a pretty big butt, so if you’re looking for
some skinny girl, you’re probably not going to like my womanly
curves. If you’re into mildly intelligent women and are self
confident, we might just get along. Most of all I’m looking for a
person to share experiences with, who can show me new things and
enjoys the same. DO NOT bother me if you’re from out of town and
are looking for an easy lay on a visit, I already hate you.
