I'm still not as unique as I'd like to think I am.
Also, I'm in a relationship and not looking for anyone else. We can
be friends, though!
What I’m doing with my life
Going back to school and waitressing. In the not-so-distant future,
however, I'm planning to trade in my soul for a law degree. Much
more functional, they say. I'd also like to move back to Manhattan
as soon as possible.
I’m really good at
Losing my lighter. Remembering details, including quotes, names,
faces, and instructions. Video games, but only on PC or 360.
Cynicism in inappropriate places. Sarcasm that isn't immediately
obvious. Cooking, from years of working in restaurants. My sense of
direction is pretty awesome as well.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm pretty shy before I've warmed up to a situation. Maybe my
overuse of unnecessarily big words. Or my hair, which is kind of
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Orwell, Chbosky, Tolstoy, Chekov, Vonnegut, Hemingway, and
Palahniuk are my go-to authors if I'm asked about books. Poets that
I'm attached to include Neruda, Kunitz, Keats, Williams, Simic, and
Rilke. I'm also a Barnes and Noble addict, and will read mostly
anything that doesn't get away from me fast enough.
I'm really into movies that make me think. Pulp Fiction, Inception,
The Prestige, that sort of thing. I'm also a sucker for foreign
films (think Pan's Labyrinth) and have been known to sit through
documentaries about almost anything. And then there's The Boondock
Saints, which is just essential.
Serious honesty as far as music goes: blink-182, Death Cab for
Cutie, Ryan Star, Walk the Moon, NeedToBreathe, Matt Nathanson,
Augustana, and Jeff Buckley. I'm always open to and searching for
new musical discoveries.
Cooking and baking are some of my favorite ways to spend nights.
Favorites include white pizza, peanut butter cookies, anything
spicy, and the occasional strawberry pop-tart.
The six things I could never do without
I'm rather fond of my kitten Lily, Diet Coke, Spotify, chapstick,
bananas, and internet access.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
things that matter, like how I'm about to be late for class, or
things that don't matter, like how in the world I'm going to
survive law school. Also, I tend to get poetry stuck in my head,
almost like a song. Recently, it's been one of three: "Clenched
Soul" by Pablo Neruda, "Touch Me" by Stanley Kunitz, or
"Scheherazade" by Richard Silken. All of that aside, my thoughts
usually revolve around how little sleep I've gotten in the past few
On a typical Friday night I am
Going out to a bar or hanging out with my kitten and watching
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm really self-conscious about my height.
