My self-summary
ENFP

I'm always introspective, always learning, always changing.

Current goals include: resisting the urge to type (...) after every sentence, introducing myself at parties, and hmmmm I read a very convincing buzzfeed article about the benefits of washing your hair in cold water as opposed to scalding hot so I guess I'm trying that out!
What I’m doing with my life
I recently decided to take a semester off from completing my degree at Willamette University. My degree is in Creative Writing.
In the meantime I am moving to SE Portland to live with beautiful creative people in a big warm house, work as a waitress/bar-back, write, go to open mics, self publish, spend time at the IPRC, and work on my general mental health- learn to be happy and pretend to be an adult for seven months before slipping back into the world of undergrad academia.

My only hope is to have a job I dont hate. In the long-term, I'd love to write for TV or blog.
Short-term career goals include being the chubby female bartender with tattoos whos dry sense of humor comes off kinda mean but you really just want her to like you?
I’m really good at
Solving conflict through comedy. I deal with almost everything that makes me uncomfortable by joking about it until It becomes completely desensitized... I'm also really great at teasing people. If I'm not making fun of you I'm probably just disinterested.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm pretty tall... chubby and I'm either wearing exclusively all black or every color possible.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I spend a good amount of time listening to podcasts surrounding comedy, entertainment business, bar culture, etc. Namely obsessed with Marc Maron's WTF, Professor Blast off, Employee of the Month and Radiolab.

I'm a student so of course I binge watch TV! Into GIRLS, Broad City, Louie, Maron, Sopranos, Peep Show, The Shield, The L Word, Saturday Night Live, Comedy Bang Bang, Veronica Mars, True Detective, Bored to Death

At risk of sounding like an asshole while listing off authors..... here's a list of authors/poets I like:
George Saunders, DFW, Audre Lorde, Faulkner, Flannery O'Connor, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Ama Ata Aidoo

My music taste varies with my influences... I listen to a lot of Punk, Folk Punk, Bluegrass, Alternative stuff, Whiny stuff, Loud stuff, Most stuff
The six things I could never do without
1. Burritos
2. Introspection/intuition
3. Close intimate relationships of all kinds
4. Drive to create
5. Good beer
6. television/podcast subscriptions/tumblr
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The great cosmic joke, poetry, writing, people I love, creating community, conflict resolution, love in general, my future/ambition, how to be and stay happy, influences, what it is to be an adult, how to avoid doing that, beards, hair, bodies, gender, power, dichotomy PLEASE HELP ME I CANT STOP LISTING THINGS AND MAYBE IM SpIRaiLnGgg
On a typical Friday night I am
Drinking all the beers
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have three tattoos, a nose piercing and a tongue piercing
You should message me if

you find that you thrive as the center of attention
you're not threatened by someone who also enjoys the spotlight
you live near the Portland area and you wanna make a friend and possibly get a beer ;)
