Still fairly new to Ann Arbor. Moved from DC where I lived for six years, before that I was an Army Brat who moved 16 times!
I'm enjoying my new home so far, trying to make time to explore and meet new people.
What I’m doing with my life
Law school, focusing on child welfare. I'm a former preschool teacher/special education case manager who came to law school to pursue my goal of becoming an attorney for children in foster care.
I’m really good at
Cooking - I love to cook and read food blogs/cookbooks to get new ideas
Keeping in touch with old friends and making time for new friends
Listening - I have strong feelings on a variety of subjects and I'm looking for someone who cares about the world and is willing to talk about important issues
Crafty projects/home improvement :)
The first things people usually notice about me
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Pride and Prejudice, The Count of Monte Cristo, The Goldfinch, Middlemarch, The Line of Beauty, The Alchemist, pretty much any book about Ireland
Movies: You've Got Mail, Sabrina, The Shawshank Redemption, Sixteen Candles, When Harry Met Sally
Shows: West Wing, Modern Family, the Mindy Project, Girls, Downton Abbey, Parenthood, Orange is the New Black, Game of Thrones
Music: male singer-songwriters, Sara Bareilles, Paul Simon, Otis Redding, the Temptations, Van Morrison, James Taylor
Food: popcorn, thai, pizza, healthy vegetarian when I'm cooking for myself
The six things I could never do without
my family and friends, coffee, gps, red wine, books, my cat Huck
I spend a lot of time thinking about
weekend plans. my next vacation. what recipe to try next. law
stuff. child welfare reform. family and friends back in DC.
On a typical Friday night I am
totally depends on the night (and now that I live in Michigan, the
weather!) - maybe home cooking for friends or out at happy hour. Or
if it's been a busy week, just enjoying downtime at home reading or
watching a movie
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to have my nose pierced
You should message me if
you think we'd get along! I'm looking for someone kind and smart and funny...politically liberal and preferably not religious. If you are awesome but not pretentious, I'd love to meet you!
