I am what I often times hate being called by anyone the slightest
bit older than me...spunky. It seems to fit, regardless of how lame
it sounds. I love to search through life to find hidden awesomeness
in things often ignored by the general populace. I like to walk
through life with an open mind, hoping that every person or event I
experience will leave me a little more wise and a little more in
love with the world. I tend to be liberal with most things and
crave anything out of the ordinary. I am the perfect example of
what a tomboy grows up to be. There is nothing better than a good
beer and a great game at the end of the day.
What I’m doing with my life
Growing the fuck up. I moved to Louisville about two years ago
while trying to discover myself post college, doing not a damn
thing involved with my degree of choice. I am trying to discover
who I am and determine the right path for my life. I am trying to
meet as many people and garner as many experiences as possible
while I still have the excuse of being young and reckless.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh. My dream job is to be a stand up comedian and
then transfer that into writing. Making people laugh gives me fuel
for my day. It provides me with a genuine feeling of happiness. I'm
also rather good at being a care giver, despite my rambunctious,
debauchery influenced nature. I have a huge heart and tend to go
out of my way to make sure my friends are happy.
The first things people usually notice about me
I look like I teach kindergarten...so when I open my mouth and say
something that breaks that stereotype, people tend to be surprised.
I also tend to have a lot of energy and a dominating, infectious
spirit. People trying to be polite describe me as charming. Those
who wish to tell me the truth say I could make a sailor blush.

The six things I could never do without
My Sense of Independence
Being Able to Create
The Feeling of Reading a Great Book for the Very First Time
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If I were a kid on Legends of the Hidden Temple, would I have won?
Why do people love Bud Light and Fireball? How I ended up in
Louisville, KY. What I could be doing right now to further my many
career goals. Why does my cat do the shit that he does....
You know, basically what they edited out of Sister Hood of the
On a typical Friday night I am
Serving booze to the drunken masses in the Highlands, wishing I
were the one being handed the bourbon.
On my off days, I blindly wander through the city trying to find my
new favorite restaurant or cocktail. If I feel like staying in, I
grab a nice six pack or throw some good bourbon on ice and go
through half of my record collection.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a disgusting relationship with the album Rumours by
Fleetwood Mac. I cannot drink without it coming up. You will be
forced to listen to this vinyl with me.
