My self-summary
I'm in love with a lot of things. Books and movies and music and theatre and art, to name a few.

I grew up as Northeast as you can get in the state of North Carolina (on one side is the Outer Banks, on the other is Virginia state line).

I'm pretty clumsy. I fall a lot. :)
I like things from and studying different cultures.
I studied abroad Spring 2010, and that influenced me in a big way.
I love going to bookstores and finding random performances in the city to go to with friends and silly events no one pays enough attention to on campus and downtown.
What I’m doing with my life
I just received a BA in English at UNC Greensboro; I moved to Pennsylvania in 2012 to get my Masters in Publishing and Editing.
I am Assistant Manager at an indie bookstore, and I LOVELOVELOVE it there. Some days I toy with the idea of opening my own indie bookstore, but I just don't know at this point.
I’m really good at
Anything with words.
I can read, write, edit, debate, all that jazz.

I'm also good at talking, listening, having fun in arbitrary situations, sleeping, making lists, falling down, being sarcastic...
I'm sure there's more.
The first things people usually notice about me
Honestly?
My boobs.

The six things I could never do without
books
tea (sweet, chai, and English Breakfast above all)
music
my car
a kitty of some sort in my life
family and friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything.
I think and think and overthink every aspect of everything.
It’s just what I do.
I like thinking about happiness and the future and different aspects of life.
And I think about people a lot.
Who they are, what makes them that way, all that.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching bad TV.
Out to dinner, at the movies, or playing Wii with friends.

On special Friday nights, I like going to some event (play, musical, concert, etc.).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I never want kids. I think I would make a terrible mother, and am too selfish to compromise any of my dreams or goals for a family. I have the utmost respect for those who do want kids, but it's just not what I'm looking for.

I do not compromise my beliefs for anyone, so don’t ask me to.
This doesn’t make me a prude or a jerk. It’s just a fact.
You should message me if
--you're interested in friendship.
--you want to tell me something.
--you have some question or comment.
--you're bored.
