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!
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 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

you're fucking hilarious
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 ;)
