I'm 24-years-old, born and raised in Little Rock (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 future.
I really like to cook and bake. I'm FINALLY getting back in shape after shoulder surgery/the fatness of college. So I simply cook/bake for the fun of it and then give the food away.
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 have two awesome cats Zoe and Taterbug (he came with the name, but it fits him perfectly somehow) as well as a new puppy named Dante. I'm a huge animal lover and a vegetarian since birth. Literally, my parents are vegetarian.
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 and I'm applying for a masters in library science for the coming fall. I'm a complete bibliophile (lover of books) so it's perfect for me.
I'm an open book (bad pun intended) so hit me up.
