I've just moved to Brooklyn for a job, but I'm originally from
Nebraska (go Huskers). I moved to London for law school and then
took a job in Houston. So I'm kind of...homeless...in a way? Um,
but not really. Love to travel the world and experience different
cultures, read, films...y'know, all the other things that everyone
loves to do.
What I’m doing with my life
Not much. Just joking! I work for a human rights non-profit, the
same one I worked for in London. I am a latte sipping liberal for
sure (perhaps the very definition) so beware that my work is quite
controversial and I strongly believe in it. (That's not to say that
I can't discuss "the other side", but if that drives you nuts, you
can't say I didn't warn ya.)
I’m really good at
sarcasm... I'm hopelessly efficient and can make plans like no
The first things people usually notice about me
My laugh. I have a hugely large laugh. It annoys some, others tell
me it's endearing. And I laugh a lot. A lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I adore Shakespeare. I love to read so am willing to read just
about anything (although perhaps not sci-fi and fantasy). A fan of
non-fiction mostly. I also love movies and TV box sets, and am
slightly obsessed with Mad Men, True Blood, Veep, The Mindy
Project, and 30 Rock. I love horror films, but can take a miss on
the chick flicks. I have been a vegetarian since the age of 9 and
have recently become a vegan.
But I'm always up for new things.
The six things I could never do without
My passport; my watch (hate being late); shoes (cliche but true);
my phone (yes, I'm that annoying person that checks her emails
constantly...I apologize in advance). My amazing network of friends
who have been absolutely supportive of my BS. And
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I try not to think. It's just so taxing.
Where I'm going to travel to next.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a pub for one or two and then home to watch movies and chill
out. I'll go on Saturdays, but usually pretty laid back on
Since moving to Brooklyn, circumstances have seen it fit to place
me at the laundromat on Friday evenings. So...that sucks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Haha, what do people actually admit to on here?! I can't think of
anything as I don't really hide anything anyway, but as soon as I
can think of something, I promise to post it.
You should message me if
You've read this whole thing and still want to.
