I'm looking for good places/people to spend time with here in
Detroit! I am an energetic, intelligent girl and I like to have as
much fun as possible, regardless of where I am or the people that I
am with! I enjoy reading, writing, watching documentaries and
movies, trivia, and game nights, but I'm also a social butterfly
that needs to take flight on a regular basis.
What I’m doing with my life
I just moved to Detroit from Albuquerque, NM to work at Wayne State
University. I'll be getting my PhD in Rhetoric and Writing,
teaching English, and working at the writing center. That's pretty
much what I was doing in Albuquerque, but it was much hotter and
drier. So far I'm enjoying living in a new place that is very
different from the one I was born and raised.
I’m really good at
I'm a people person. It's a love/hate relationship. Mostly love
though. I'm also good at writing and general communication...call
me Clarify! There are several things I'm trying to get better at
such as cooking and waking up early.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have very recognizable laughter. My friends can pick me out of a
crowd if I'm laughing. And I usually am. Since I've been in
Detroit, several people have commented on my smile. Apparently I
have a pretty sweet bicycle, also.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love going to concerts, plays, movies, reading books and
listening to music. I like to see and experience what humans are
possible of creating. My music tastes are varied, but I would have
to say hip hop is my favorite genre. Like any musical genre it is
divided into Top 40 and independent artists. I like the independent
ones most. Aesop Rock, Brother Ali, Mac Lethal, Dead Prez, Commom
Market, Blue Scholars. But I can't hate on Jay-Z. He wrote a book
and I read it. I also have a healthy appreciation for good 'ol rock
'n roll and electronic music that makes you move. Albuquerque has
an amazing hip hop scene that I was very involved in and I'd like
to know where the hip hop is here in the D! If you don't believe
ABQ has a good hip hop scene, just ask me to send you some tunes.
Then you send me some of your favorite local artists' music!
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The zombie apocalypse, sandwiches, what book I should read next,
fighting a bear, quesadillas, what I should write about next, how
exactly do you teach someone how to write, anyway?.....basically I
didn't spend a whole lot of time thinking of what to put in this
On a typical Friday night I am
Most likely I'm somewhere with good food and beer and I probably
rode my bike there, weather permitting.
You should message me if
....you have fingers.
If you enjoy good beer or trying new beers. I am quickly filling my
fridge with more beer than food because everywhere I go there are
beers that I haven't tried before and I want to try, but I can only
drink so much by myself before it gets unseemly.
If you don't have a profile picture of you wearing
If you can compose a first message longer than "Hi! How are you?"
