My self-summary
I like to travel and I'm determined to see as much of the world as I can, but I also don't mind staying home and curling up with a good book or a movie.

I want to go on as many as adventures as I can, but when I'm not adventuring, I enjoy drinking coffee, doing crossword puzzles, chilling with a beer, and watching sports, especially football (Go Hawkeyes!) and baseball (Go Cardinals!).

I also watch a lot of Netflix. A LOT. I'm currently working my way through The West Wing.

Also, I'm really bad at describing myself, so I guess if you want to know about me, you'll just have to ask!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently a historical researcher, which is really cool. Eventually I plan on going back to school to become an archivist.

I'm also hoping to travel more. I really want to go to Iceland and see the Northern Lights. Wanna come?
The first things people usually notice about me
You'll have to tell me!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Gilmore Girls
Parks and Recreation
The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
The West Wing
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (but let's pretend it ended after season 5, okay?)

Field of Dreams
Dead Poets Society
Mean Girls
The Princess Bride

Books: I like SO many books, so these are the highlights:
Leaves of Grass
Dandelion Wine
House of Leaves
Corelli's Mandolin

My favorite band is the Beatles, but really, I'm a big classic rock fan.
Right now I'm really into The Eagles and America.
Also, I have music-color synesthesia, so I'm drawn to bands that tend to have songs that have cool colors, which is a big part of why I like America. Sandman by America is the COOLEST.

Podcasts, because I LOVE podcasts:
Oh No Ross & Carrie!
Love + Radio
Hardcore History
The six things I could never do without
The internet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I can travel next and when I can go.

And currently I spend a LOT of time thinking about my fantasy baseball team. It's my first time trying it out and I don't know much about it, but I HAVE to win.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing and unwinding. I like to go out for a few drinks or to see a movie or something when I can.
You should message me if
You want to?

But for God's sake, say more than just "hey." You'll have to try harder than that!
