I'm kinda short with a big personality! I work for a nonprofit that
helps teach people how to care for those who are grieving which I
love, but it can get overwhelming at times. I have a bachelor of
fine arts in creative writing and masters in poetry, so it's safe
to say I like to write :) I also have a pug puppy who is my
constant companion and is always teaching me the value of patience.
What I’m doing with my life
Working...a lot... I do hope to one day teach at the college level,
so I'm hoping to get on the path to a PhD very soon.
The first things people usually notice about me
I don't really know...my nose piercing I guess? Or the tattoo on my
foot - guess it depends where they're looking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: too many to list but I really love the classics Huckleberry
Finn, Oliver Twist, The Great Gatsby, Clockwork Orange and The Old
Man and the Sea. Anything by Hemingway, Twain, Faulkner,
Fitzgerald, Dickens, Vonnegut (I did my thesis on Cat's Cradle).
And newer talent such as Eggers and Foer. And I'll always have a
place in my heart for my homies on the poet side: Cummings,
Collins, and Auden.
Music: anything but country. I also have a borderline unhealthy
obsession with Incubus - it's real, it's beautiful; don't judge me.
Also like Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, Johnny Cash, CCR, Sublime,
311...it just gets more all over the place from there.
Movies: I love all movies - bad ones, good ones, funny ones, scary
ones. It's pretty much impossible for me to turn down an invite to
catch a flick. But particularly I like The Science of Sleep, The
Squid and the Whale, Brazil, 12 Monkeys, Pineapple Express, Wet Hot
American Summer, The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, Fear and
Loathing in Las Vegas, and I heart Huckabees.....etc, etc, etc
The six things I could never do without
Miles my puppy
The time / ability to be creative
Oops! That was 7....what can I say? I'm a rebel
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I recently burned several holes in my carpet due to an unfortunate
hookah accident, so I'm in the process of repairing said carpet
without my landlord being any the wiser....shh!!
You should message me if
If you're looking for a partner in crime. I'm old and young at the
same time so I spend a lot of time pretending to be an adult and
tending to adult things but cartoons still make me laugh and I'm
pretty sure I have the same sense of humor as a 12 year old boy. So
I'm looking for someone who is doing the same and can make me laugh
and keep me on my toes.
