I'm a full-time student, full-time waitress with a variety of
interests and a cat. I'm intelligent, driven, open, curious, and a
When I die, and everybody is standing around my coffin talking,
here's what I want them to say: "She was kind." "She was generous."
"She helped a lot of people / made a lot of lives better." "She
really supported her children." "She lived her life according to
her values." "She truly demonstrated the right way to be." "We will
miss her." "She was loved."

What I’m doing with my life
I'm studying Dietetics (the food one, not the Scientology one), on

I'm really short! I'm also almost always cheerful, and a bit loud.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't have one favorite of any of these. I know everybody says

each of the many, many things I like, I would say... A
Companion to Wolves, Invention of Lying, Music Man, the theme
from Star Wars, and the absolutely delicious thing I just
made with spaghetti squash, garlic, sun-dried tomato, and olive
The six things I could never do without
Oh good grief.

At work. Waitress, remember?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There was a lot of emotional abuse in my house growing up... I'm
still working through the dings and dents it put in my psyche. I
am working through it, though!
You should message me if
Any of the above strikes a chord.
