I'm St. Louis born and bred, although I lived in Chicago for about seven years. I'm a cheerful realist or a realistic optimist...not sure where the line is. I'm a feminist (and think it's weird that feminism has to be a category these days and that there are people out there who AREN'T feminist). I'm a do-er and a fun-seeker; if I think of something I want to do, I usually find a way to do it. This varies widely, from figuring out what I can bake without going to the store to traveling to Iceland twice in the last two years. We're not on this planet for a very long time. I try to use that time to experience as much as I can, change as much as I can for the better, and eat as much Ethiopian food as possible.
OkCupid thinks I'm "less adventurous." I disagree, and now I am "more offended."
