Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm addicted to books, and am never without one. Not because I'm
particularly intelligent or anything, but because there is
something wonderfully safe and beautiful about the written word, it
is where I feel most at home. When not reading, I am shy around new
people and bouncy and ridiculous around friends. I want to learn to
rock-climb and paint, and go spelunking and travel.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am an in-home caregiver. I have worked with the same family for
four years. My job is like being home away from home, and I love
the children I work with. It is my ultimate hope to become a
librarian, and, eventually, an archivist.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Taking tests, climbing trees, appreciating food cooked by other
people (I'm a terrible cook), playing tetris. . .and other things,

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

All the books, Though my top five favorite books, to save time, are
East of Eden by John Steinbeck, Gone With the Wind by Margaret
Mitchell, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith, Fried Green
Tomatoes by Fannie Flagg, and The Curious Incident of the Dog in
the Nighttime by Mark Haddon. Then there's the Perks of Being a
Wallflower, Fahrenheit 451, well that's seven, I did better at
stopping than I expected =) Movies-wise, I've a weakness for
anything done by Focus Features or Disney, and I don't really watch
TV because we do not have cable, though I love TedTalks on Netflix.
I love 90's music and know what I am sure is every single song ever
sung by the band Cake. I am also partial to some country music,
Johnny Cash, musicals, and Frank Sinatra. I like sushi, macaroni
and cheese, grilled cheese, and rice, bean and cheese tacos.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
books, friends, car, phone, computer, hope
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
everything and all the things and how they are connected to each
other. The latest thing I've read or seen on TedTalks, my dreams
for the future, I think about so many random things that have
nothing to do with anything, but are all connected to everything
ultimately, I don't care if that makes no sense.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out getting a beer, (I have a fondness for craft beers,
particularly stouts and belgian tripels) either with a friend or
two, or with a book.

you want somebody to do things with or to talk to. We could go to
painting with a twist, or take hikes, grab a beer or browse through
half-price books. or just be penpals, as I have a fondness for
sending and receiving things in my mailbox that have nothing to do
with ads or bills. I suppose that I should stress that I am looking
for friendship here. My friends have slowly but surely moved away
to chase job opportunities and I am looking for friendly,
like-minded people who like to hang out and try new things.
