Side-smile smirks and eyebrow raises for days. I replace the word
cynical with incredulous 9/10 times
What I’m doing with my life
I'm forging a career in eloquent articulation and wordsmithery. I do marketing and advertising things with a focus on creative content. Still, I've also worked as an inner-city school teacher, an oboist, a web designer, and a tarot card reader. One day I will be Don Draper. Or at least Nina Garcia. I'd settle for either.
P.S. we'll get along if you just cringed at the my use of 'inner-city'
I’m really good at
Tying bow ties and finishing crosswords
The first things people usually notice about me
Either that I'm tall or that my head is stuck in the clouds.
Surprisingly, these have nothing to do with one another.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Anything by Anais Nin, Marquez, or Millay
Movies - Everything from Amelie to Kill Bill. It just has to be pretty to look at, and that goes for TV too. A little camp never hurt anybody either
Music - Ranges from Granola Folk to Witchy Thug Grrrrl Pop. I also have a soft spot for classical music
Food - I'm a flexitarian vegetarian. Eggplant parm is my favorite food group.
The six things I could never do without
- Breakfast foods
- Bjork's first five albums
- Fresh pressed ginger
- Those buttons that hold the ends of your shirt collar down
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Dogs who think they're people and new ways to power-clash my floral shirts
On a typical Friday night I am
Steeping mint leaves in sweet tea with bourbon and convincing
people that this is actually a manly mixed drink and subsequently
complaining about the gender binary.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm secretly a science nerd too. Psychopharmacology is my guilty
pleasure, and I can talk about sexually dimorphic grey matter for
longer than any one should.
You should message me if
You won't mind the fact that I never have nor ever will eat bacon.
