My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
***i've been living in paris for the last two and a half years. i am still in paris right now, BUT! i move back home to chicago at the beginning of september.***

stuff i like: black tights. slow jamz. hugs. high fives. structured hats. sweater weather. thunderstorms. mexican candy. phở. nag champa. catch phrases. chicago (my hometown). paris (my second home). schwinn bicycles. malted milkshakes. my record player. old books. good beer. shitty beer. gin gimlets. bourbon. rock. roll. twist. shout.

i don't do yoga and i hate running. in fact, the only exercise i can really tolerate is walking at a moderate pace. i do crunches and push-ups before bed, but i really don't want to.

i am finally having to come to terms with the fact that i am not a cool kid. i don't get invited to rooftop parties with famous instagrammers. whenever i go into kitsuné, i feel like the shopgirls are laughing at me a little bit. this one bartender at le mauri7 told me i looked like someone he knew. before i started to respond, i took a sip from my beer and then dribbled a little bit on my shirt.

no matter how many hip coffee shops and bars i frequent, no matter how many picnics i take on the canal, no matter how much black i wear, i will never be cool enough to be a cool kid in paris. paris, je t'aime, mais vous êtes trop cool pour moi.

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
parallel parking. cutting my own hair. wearing dresses. drinking tea. avoiding cameras. jokes. laughing too loudly. self-deprecation. speaking english with a french accent. giving myself pep-talks: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9U78NbX9ro

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
