Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm 26-years-old, born and raised in Little Rock,AR (except the 4
years of college in FL). I have my BA in English Literature with a
concentration in pre 1800 British Lit. Think Chaucer, Shakespeare,
etc. I'm a huge dork. I'd much rather read a book or listen to
music and knit than watch TV. Bones is about the only exception and
I don't even watch it during the season, I just wait til it's on
DVD. I'm really not into video games, WoW, Magic, etc. So if you're
a big gamer I'm betting there's not gonna be much of a
I'm in Madison for grad school to get my Masters in Library
Science. I hope to be a teen librarian and work with LGBT
I'm really passionate about Africa and the war in Congo. Abuse/war
in any form is never acceptable but right now the way that the
women and children are being treated and the reason for their
treatment makes me sick.
I love to travel and I hope to travel to as many places as
possible. Last November I went to Nicaragua and helped build a
village. Seeing poverty first hand put life into perspective. I
taught a kid how to play frisbee and saw a school where grades k-12
were in the same room and had maybe 20 books, tops. That was a trip
that I'll never forget.
I think that knowledge is about the sexiest thing in the world. I'm
a complete bibliophile (lover of books).
I'm an open book (bad pun intended) so hit me up.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making an ass of myself. Being awkward. Being a good friend. Making
people laugh. I can make some bad ass chocolate chip cookies, too.
I like singing and writing as well, I'm fairly good at both.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Physically; my eyes. I have really long lashes and apparently
"really interesting eyebrows." I guess sense of humor? I'm really

Musically I like everything. Seriously. My tastes range from The
Dixie Chicks to Ani Difranco to Marilyn Manson to choral music to
Patty Griffin to showtunes to opera to The Beatles to Madonna to
Christina Aguilera. Really. As long as "bitches and hoes" aren't
every other word I'm pretty good.
Movies are just about as diverse as books and music:
But I'm A Cheerleader
Shakespeare in Love
Angels in America
Imagine Me and You
A Nightmare on Elm Street
Never Been Kissed
10 Things I hate About You
I'm vegetarian but Thai, southern cooking, Italian, Indian, and
Mexican are my faves.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I'm going to do with my life. Chaucer. Library science. Love.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reading, watching a movie, texting with my friends and being called
a cat lady. Occasionally going to a bar or two, always happy when
my friends are successful in making me go out once I'm out of the

You liked my profile or you simply want to talk. I'm a good
listener. However, you have to say more than "what's up?" I need an
entertaining and engaging convo. NASCAR and obsessive gaming are
really big turn offs.
