I am a loyal Banana Slug alumna. I work hard, except for my last
few college papers because by that point I gave zero fucks. I'm at
my best when I'm with others but as I've grown I've been a lot more
in tune with my need for me-time. I'm a caretaker at heart and I
find intelligence and creativity incredibly attractive. I'm here in
LA for the foreseeable future and am excited to make the most of
our amazing city.
What I’m doing with my life
Just finished an accelerated EMT course and working on the rest of my state licensure reqs. The eventual goal is to be a nurse but I figured I'd start here. Quit my travel agent job of 2 years because I was miserable. I am also the site coordinator for a retreat/camp program for high school students.
I’m really good at
-parallel parking. Seriously, I will park you DOWN.
-folding paper cranes.
-making cheesecakes and French toast.
-BS-ing papers. If I had dollar for every well-written paper I'd
done on a book I hadn't read, I wouldn't even need this degree. I
supposed that's a skill unto itself. Suffice it to say I'm good at
critical thinking and problem solving.
The first things people usually notice about me
I wouldn't know, and I wouldn't really want to know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Book Thief, The Poisonwood Bible, Harry Potter, Wuthering Heights, Breakfast of Champions, Pride and Prejudice
Benny and Joon, Pulp Fiction, The Big Lebowski, anything Pixar
Orange Is The Bew Black, Breaking Bad, Bob's Burgers, Food Network competition shows
90s! (LFO, Third Eye Blind, etc.), Dumbfoundead, Chance the Rapper, Fleetwood Mac, Sara Bareilles
Also country. Not gonna lie. Luke Bryan can do no wrong.
... I like a lot of things. Especially the song "Build Me Up Buttercup."
- Tito's & Kogi
- Curry and naan
- Avocados & mangos
-Cheesecake (especially the ones I make)
-The oatmeal my uncle makes on Thanksgiving morning
-Cream puffs from Angel Maid bakery. (They're better than Beard Papa.)
The six things I could never do without
-My family, and friends that might as well be family.
-Cuddling on cold days
-Excessive blankets and pillows on my bed
-Rainy winters and sunny, beachy summers
-Venice Beach + bike rides
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What my next job will be. Also when I can finally get a dog and what its name will be and exactly how happy we will be together.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends, or hangin' with the fam.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
R. Kelly's Ignition Remix is decidedly my favorite song ever. I mean, of all time. This is not a joke.
You should message me if
you feel like it, or if you'd like to check out a farmers' market
or coffee shop.
Secondly... if you want to help me tackle the depressingly long
list of movies I haven't seen.
Thirdly... If you like boba. This is obviously less of a
requirement and more of a bonus.
