Music loving. Educated. Feminist. Open-minded. Curious. Amatuer Chef, Pop-culture Vulture. Cinephile. Reality TV -consuming. Traveling. Dancing Queen. Fun loving. Minnesota/West-African gal. Some goals for 2015 were to: see more live music, eat less meat, visit a new state, finally see Star Wars 😁 Status of those goals: I went to DE, nice state! I'm eating less meat and only kinda missing it. I took my little sister to Jingleball, now there's a story. I still haven't ever seen Star Wars but I hear it's only okay or something.
In 2016, I still need to see Star Wars, but beyond that I want to make some major changes in my life, including doing more international travel and making a career change. Happy Endings is now streaming on Hulu, so 2016 is already off to a great start, I'm excited to see what adventures it will bring, I'm ready!
I'm the complete package. Head, shoulders, knees, and toes, knees and toes.
I think I'm pretty awesome 👌🏾 your move 😉
Harry Potter everything. Yes, I cried when I learned Alan Rickman died. RIP Professor Snape.
Movie theaters are my happy place, especially during Oscar season.
I rule at pop culture trivia. It's my jam.
I'm a frequent podcast listener, any suggestions?
I absolutely love to cook. I feel at peace in a kitchen. I think food connects us as a people, so I think it's important to eat the world. I love Thai, anything my mom makes (West African food), fried plantains, sushi, pizza and kale - don't even get me going on how much I love kale.
Music is everything. I grew up listening to jazz and African music with my dad. I now listen to everything from The Black Keys, to Amadou and Mariam, to Taylor Swift. I love local musician John Mark Nelson.
Though infrequent, naps
Four seasons not The Four Seasons, but that would be nice too
I feel kind of lame if I don't do something on a Friday but I'm slowing coming to terms with that and realizing I'm not 21 anymore. I'm now more appreciative of quiet relaxing nights watching a movie or playing games with friends. Then again, I'm not 70 either, so let's go do something fun!
You don't take yourself too seriously
You're into that black girl magic.
You're a nice person
