Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Originally from southeast Florida. College in the Blue Ridge of
North Carolina. Eight years ago I came to Chicago for a 'brief'
summer layover... and here I am. One year of Americorps, a few too
many moves and lots of public transportation later -- I now call
this city my home.
Quite outgoing. Sometimes I wear a flower in my hair. I adore polka
dots and am often sporting cowgirl boots. I can be goofy and fiery
and sometimes a fast driver.
A Libra through and through, I swoon at the feeling of romance in
the air. Value conversation -- both the mundanity and depth.
Moments before dawn is my favorite time of day.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Most of my experience is in the non-profit field. Lived the the
dream in retail for a few years. Now a in a full time Masters of
Social Work program.
Taking dog walks. Allowing room for contradiction. Drinking coffee.
Finding the good in people.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Picking out Christmas trees. Omelettes. Hard work. Dancing my arse
off. Making things less awkward. Thrift shopping.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My dogs. Coffee. Family. A body of water. Good tunes. Stillness in
between moments of life's chaos.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
"We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are." -Anais
Where i'm headed... Both on the short term on long. Social justice.
Silliness. Love. Which boots to wear. Equality. The formation of
identity. The middle way. The right thing to do.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Spooning my pups. Or sipping on a rich, hoppy beer out on the town.
Dancing perhaps. Or just cozied up in pj's.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

sure how iceberg lettuce can taste so good.
