I love bonfires, going to shows, trying new restaurants, reading, coffee, cuddling with my cat, and researching things that interest me. I enjoy a good used book/record store, walking around in Philly, and trying new things. I'm typically up for anything. I'm a raging feminist and LGBTQ Alphabet activist. I'm an aunt to the most adorable little boy ever, and the people who I consider family always come first.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to live my life the best way I know how. I work, I make time to visit my friends, I try to learn something everyday.
I’m really good at
Laughing/making people laugh/taking a joke
Keeping an open-mind
Making really goofy faces
Telling really funny inconsequential stories.
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes or my smile.
Or on a more realistic note: how short I am.

The six things I could never do without
Friends & family
An open mind
Music and art
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why someone put the 50 Shades saga in the section that was CLEARLY
for classic literature. (It's been a year and I still think about
How I end up in a Twin Peaks Etsy search every few months.
On a typical Friday night I am
In my PJs, doing laundry, having a glass of wine, and catching up on some tv. Friday night's tend to be my "me" time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My first name is not Ann.
ALSO: I once won a trophy for the most gutter balls at a work bowling party.
