My self-summary
I'm restless. I love old movies. And Rachel Maddow. And documentaries. And bourbon. And rumple shots. And The Young Turks. And imgur. And dark nail polish. And mascara.

Bill Hicks is basically my soul twin.

I'm a contradiction. I'm not quite ready to grow up and fall in line, but I fake it very well.

I've always questioned authority, and I wanted to be a writer when I was a little girl. I like to think that's why I'm not a fan of cops and I prefer cheap bourbon...
What I’m doing with my life
I help secure federal funding for foster children, which pretty much boils down to me finding other people's mistakes in time to fix them. So, yeah, I have a shit load of spreadsheets.
I’m really good at
Getting lost

Doing my makeup/changing clothes while driving - this comes in handy more often than it should

Forgetting names. Even 5 minutes after you tell me.

Remembering song lyrics. Any genre, any decade... good songs, shitty songs, doesn't matter... if I've heard it more than 4-5 times, then my brain has, for whatever reason, decided that it is VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION that should be remembered forever - at the expense of people's names, apparently :/

Picking out the perfect present

Basketball (yes, really)
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyelashes (people always think they're fake) and my VERY Southern accent

The six things I could never do without
NPR

Sharpie pens

Dive bars

Stiletto heels

Bourbon

Satirical news shows
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to drag a kicking and screaming Mississippi into the 21st century.......... just kidding, that's impossible.
On a typical Friday night I am
Running late, most likely.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm deathly afraid of squirrels. And those little birds that are always hopping around your car in parking lots.

...I'm also pretty fucking terrified of the 2016 GOP presidential candidates
(Update: Every time I see Ted Cruz on TV interacting with another human being, I have this overwhelming urge to yell "Run!" at my screen. Because god that man is just sooo creepy.)
You should message me if
You've ever heard "Conversation With the Devil"
Bet you haven't ;)
