There once was a girl named Lauren
Her life was anything but borin'.
Marathoning, her hobby, takes her many miles;
Basketball, softball, and football also bring her smiles!
Her favorite team is from Notre Dame
Make a joke about Lennay Kekua and she'll think you quite lame! :)
So if near Atlanta you also reside
Let's meet for a drink or coffee, and enjoy the ride!
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a financial strategy consultant. My work is project based and has the ability to take me on the road quite a bit, which, at this point in my life, I'm really enjoying. However, I'm currently working locally, and enjoying not packing a suitcase weekly.
Aside from this, I'm also into trying to do things to improve the lives of others and myself. I enjoy giving back and spend time doing so at places like Medshare and Ronald McDonald House. An ideal match will make us both want to live our lives to make both the world and ourselves the best we can.
I’m really good at
Remembering random things. I come in pretty handy during bar
trivia. I also have an uncanny ability to remember names and people
and random details of their lives.
Also, cuddling :)
The first things people usually notice about me
-My eyes (they're green)
-My hair (it's long and dark brown)
-My legs (they're pretty muscular from all those aforementioned miles)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe; Brave New World by
Aldous Huxley; Michael Lewis books (Moneyball, The Big Short); the
Bible and the Notre Dame Book of Prayer
Movies: Rudy and other Vince Vaughn movies (yes, he's in it :)),
chick flicks like Pretty Woman, Legally Blonde and Dirty Dancing,
comedies like Wedding Crashers, Hitch and Elf
Shows: Used to love Lost...now, Modern Family, Parks and
Recreation, Community. Oh, and Dance Moms. It's a trainwreck that I
can't turn off.
Music: Fan of lots of things in most genres...lately, Aaron
Copeland and Adele are my most played
The six things I could never do without
Aside from the standard family, friends, water, breathing,
-Notre Dame football (well, Notre Dame sports in general)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Love. Life. How to become a better person. What are my goals and
how do I achieve them.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends, whether it be in the Highlands, Midtown,
Buckhead, or at a sporting event in Atlanta. I do, however, also
enjoy the quiet Friday night at home as well with a movie and some
wine. Lately though it seems like every other Friday, I'm out of
town and thus enjoying the sights and foods of wherever I'm at.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Once you get to know me, feel free to ask :)
You should message me if
You write better poetry than me or anything else in my profile makes you think we might be a match :) Looking for something more substantial than just a "netflix and chill" situation.
