I'm tiny. I'm loud. I have a lot of thoughts and feelings. And I'm
a nerdy gal who loves sports.
Um, but seriously? I guess I like to think of myself as pretty
passionate, occasionally opinionated, and really into long,
in-depth conversations about just about anything.
Oh, and the octopus is hands down my favorite animal. Absolutely
What I’m doing with my life
At the moment I'm pursuing my Master's in English Literature while
teaching freshmen composition. I think I might want to be a
professor one day? But who knows. Right now the only plan is to be
a student for the next forever. Yay learning!
I’m really good at
I have a knack for reading people. I can tell a lot about someone
from the first impression (so no pressure!). I also used to dabble
in theater, so I'm a little bit of a performer as well :)
The first things people usually notice about me
My height and my voice are what people usually notice when they
first meet me. I'm a petite little thing, but my personality more
than makes up for it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am an unashamed Dave Matthews Band fan. I've seen them seven
times. This is just something you should know about me right off
the bat. Otherwise my musical tastes are really eclectic.
Everything from classic rock to 90s alternative to mash-ups
(GirlTalk all day every day).
I also love pretty much every sports film that has ever been made.
Rocky, Remember the Titans, The Natural. You name it, I've probably
seen it. Other favorites include: American Beauty, Fantastic Mr.
Fox, Cool-Hand Luke, and Paper Moon.
And nothing makes me happier than hunkering down for the evening
with some 90s cartoons. Gotta love that Hey Arnold!
Listing favorite books would take the rest of my life, but tops are
always: Catcher in the Rye, The Great Gatsby, Catch-22, and
Matilda. And I have to include the Harry Potter series. Because
The six things I could never do without
My lovely, totally strange, but totally lovable family.
Books. I need them.
The interwebs. Why can't I quit you, social media?!
Music. I need it in order to work, to exercise, and really to do
just about everything.
Chocolate. I am an addict.
My purple converse high-tops. I've had them since the 8th grade.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I don't know what it's like to NOT think. But mostly I think about
the future, and all the homework/grading I should be doing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging with my grad school buds being nerd-a-licious and drinking
some beers. (Trying not to get drunk, but sometimes these things
can't be helped).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to be on medication for anxiety. Sometimes you just need a
little extra help.
You should message me if
Send me a message if you just want to chat, if you're game for
making a new friend, or if you'd like to grab a beer with me.
I'm not interested in random hook-ups, so keep that in mind. But
otherwise, hit me up!
