I'm a nerd and proud of it (DFTBA ya'll). I love to read and
collect books. My collection now numbers upwards of 450. I've read
95% of them. I tend to be shy when I first meet people. But once I
am comfortable, I'm a little bit crazy. Also, I really like to
cook. I once recreated Cafe Rio's sweet pork salad. It was pretty
good if I do say so myself. I also make a mean baked flan.
What I’m doing with my life
That is a very good question... I'm workin' on that. I recently
graduated from USU in literary studies. I hope one day to meet a
guy who can be my forever best friend. For now though I'm just
trying to become who I want to be.
I’m really good at
Reading. Writing. Laughing.
(An explanation: I enjoy laughing and find many reasons to do so.
People are always asking my why I'm laughing. The answer is usually
(Also, I'm pretty good at helping people write essays and such. A
useful skill I believe.) :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I always have a book in my hand. Right now I'm reading Eon by
Alison Goodman. So far so good! People also notice my eyes. They

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'll read anything, and watch anything other than horror. I'm a bit
too much of a chicken. Some of my favorite books: The Thief, The
Last Knight, The Count of Monte Cristo, Fangirl, Eleanor and Park.
Some of my favorite movies: Star Treck, She's the Man, Twelfth
Night, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. Some of my favorite TV shows:
Psych, How I Met Your Mother, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Supernatural. I
listen to big band and jazz music. Right now my favorites are Mel
Torme and Sarah Vaughan. I love chocolate. I'm a nerdfighter and I
love to listen to podcasts (my favorites are Radiolab, TAL, and The
The six things I could never do without
My kindle (so many books in one), chapstick (hate chappy lips),
sweatshirt (comfort), poofy pillow (comfort 2.0), computer
(connection) and piano (entertainment).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
That is another good question. I don't usually pay attention to
what I am thinking about. I suppose it is usually a mix between
food, books and nothing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing games with friends. Or family. Or both. :) That or reading
a good book. Or watching a good movie. But usually games.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I may or may not have a secret obsession with foreign soap operas.
It's a problem.
You should message me if
You'd like to get to know me or if you just want someone to
to. I'm a good listener. Or I guess in this venue, reader...
You should also message me if you just want a new friend. I

(As a side note: Not to intimidate you or anything, but I'm
more likely to respond if the basic rules of grammar are
in your message. So yeah... that's all.)
