I cover my face with my scarf when I'm embarrassed.
I've only ever owned cars with manual transmissions.
I am a public defender and I have very strong opinions about the criminal justice system.
I was a theatre nerd in college and would love to get back into it, but I'd settle for being an audience member for now.
What I’m doing with my life
Lawyer by day, sometime waitress by night. I'm also trying to learn Spanish, sort of.
I’m really good at
Writing. Arguing about things I care about. Talking to myself. Singing in the shower.
The first things people usually notice about me
Recently, that I look like Katniss Everdeen (also known as Jennifer
Lawrence). We share an ability to say weird/awkward things but she
wears an Oscar dress and shoots an arrow better than I do.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love reading but lately don't have much time to do it for fun. Old favorites include: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Fall on Your Knees, Chuck Palahniuk novels, 4.48 Psychosis, The Nine. Finally finished Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson which was simultaneously inspiring and infuriating, so it took me a while.
Movies: What About Bob, The Princess Bride, Away We Go, Little Miss Sunshine, Almost Famous, Boondock Saints. I'm a huge fan of movie trailers.
Shows: Parks and Recreations, The Daily Show, Last Week Tonight, The Walking Dead, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Recently discovered Orphan Black, which is amazing, and arrived very late to the GOT party, but I'm super on board now.
Music: Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson, Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens, Adele, Gnarls Barkley, Muse, Ben Folds, Guster, Cake, Fun.
Food: I don't like spicy food. I would much rather clean than cook.
The six things I could never do without
1) The people I love
2) Alone time
3) A camera
4) My cozy bed
5) The sun
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The way life should be and jokes that only I think are funny
(example: Q- What is green and has wheels? A- Grass. I lied about
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing and laughing with good friends and good beer or in bed by 10 because having a grown up job makes it difficult to stay up late.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a blog.
You should message me if
You watch movies with the subtitles on.
You think cucumber in your water is better than lemon.
You're not a fan of the online dating game.
