I like to hike, do yoga, eat pizza and make bad puns. I'm really great at finding the perfect GIF for any occasion.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently getting my Masters in teaching ESL (English as a Second Language) at American University and I graduate in May!
I’m really good at
Trash talking during Monopoly but not actually winning, rhyming, dancing at weddings, and reaching things off high shelves.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm tall...I'm about 6ft 2, and NO-- I don't play basketball. But I did play volleyball in high school and did swim team for 16 years!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: A Prayer for Owen Meany, Mountains Beyond Mountains, Half the Sky, Cutting for Stone
Music: Florence and the Machine, Lord Huron, Mumford & Sons, Third Eye Blind, The Lumineers
The six things I could never do without
1) My friends! (I love being around people, so life would be a bummer without these kids)
2)A paper and pen. I'm always writing stuff down and getting ideas
3) The internet in general...I will admit I waste too much time here
5) Being outside. I think better and am happier in nature
6) INTELLECTUAL CONVERSATION....I like people to challenge me, my brain and my beliefs.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm a linguistics nerd, so I read a lot about language in my spare time. I think a lot about how I can make life better for immigrant and refugee students. I think maybe one day I want a PHD.
On a typical Friday night I am
No such thing as a typical friday night!
But mostly i'm out goofing off with friends, be it out at bars or
just chilling around someone's apartment. I love to socialize, and
I do enjoy partying, but not everyday. I value chill time with my
friends, hiking or hanging around.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a totally irrational fear of butterflies.
