My self-summary
I love to draw, read, make stuff. I'm a bananagrams fiend and I hide my stacks of unread books in my closet as to not feel overwhelmed,
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an artist. I make paintings, drawings, and small wood sculptures. I teach art at an elementary school where I practice my Spanish. I am a letter writer, recovering thrifter, and expert vegetarian paella maker.
I’m really good at
trivia and word games
baking scones
letting people know that I care about them
decorating/design
The first things people usually notice about me
my distinctive but understated fashion sense.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: On Sundays I like to listen to classical music, and on Fridays I listen to synthpop really loud on my way to work.

Movies/tv shows: Angels in America, Project Runway, and
BBC murder mysteries.

I love public radio documentary/interview-type shows -- Interfaith Voices, State of the Reunion, 99% Invisible, Radiolab, etc.

Books: Alif the Unseen, The World to Come, The Charioteer, and C.S. Lewis' Space trilogy. I really like the work of Sherman Alexie, Ursula LeGuin, Chaim Potok, Robertson Davies, and John Dubus.

Foods: vegetarian food, chocolate, oranges, tea, really good bread, olive oil, olives, popcorn, dried mango.
The six things I could never do without
family (esp. my sisters)
close friends
public radio
libraries/museums
tea/coffee
art
I spend a lot of time thinking about
language: etymology, communication, translation, etc.
how to avoid becoming a cat lady art teacher who wears whimsical outfits and dansko shoes
colors
On a typical Friday night I am
at a friend's gallery opening, or just taking it easy after a long week (i.e. pjs, puppy, and netflix)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My sister helped me write this. If you don't like it, it is her fault.
You should message me if
If you want to go drink tea sometime, visit a museum, or learn about pottery.
