My self-summary
I like working with kids because we share the same stupid, juvenile sense of humor. I also really like playing Battleship and Mancala, I can't believe I ever forgot that coloring pages and doodling for hours are both amazing, and I think farts area really, really funny.
What I’m doing with my life
I am an educator - camps, youth development, daycare, preschool, you name it - trying to break into more of that in the museum-y, cultural side of things. (I have a Master's in basically Museum Studies). I'm also starting a non-profit with a few other people. I also do a ton of babysitting to make ends meet, because well. Education and non-profits and arts = big money, amirite?

Trying to ignore my student loans, trying to be the most well read person alive.
I’m really good at
Unconsciously mimicking everyone I have ever known, even in front of them.
Talking six year olds down from existential crises.
Making deviled eggs (most recent: french toast deviled eggs)
The first things people usually notice about me
I talk REALLY loud and I curse A LOT.

I also REALLY like using caps. Clearly unrelated.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Villette by Charlotte Bronte; The Culture We Deserve by Barzun; anything by Mary Roach, ever; currently obsessed with Patrick Rothfuss' Kingkiller Trilogy (nerdery).

Movies: Anything by Tati, I am Love, Fish Tank, My Winnipeg, Encounters at the End of the World, In the Mood for Love, In the City of Sylvia, My Dear Enemy, Children of Men, Shoot 'Em Up, Pacific Rim, The Host, Cleo from 5 to 7, Hocus Pocus, The Burbs, Clueless, Newsies.

Music: Songs of the Summer: Monica - First Night, Haim - Hold Me, TLC - What About Your Friends, Tupac & Co. - California Love, Darren Hanlon - Cupid, The Dixie Cups - The Worryin' Way, Clarence Carter - Slip Away, This Year's Kisses - Nina Simone, Joni Mitchell - Chelsea Morning, the new EXO album

TV: Regular Show, The IT Crowd, Spaced, Peep Show, Luther, The Wire, Buffy, The Fall, Super Fun Night, dorky Korean Dramas, Orphan Black, Mad Men, Vikings... and The Daily Show, every night. I deeply love Parks and Rec but Leslie Knope's blind idealism hits a little too close to home and sometimes its hard to watch.

Food: I just like good food. Practically, I have no allergies and eat for convenience more than I'd like, and I love cooking and grocery shopping and food is just great. Madison Market for life.
The six things I could never do without
An internet connection, Seattle Metro, little dude friends (hanging out with kids), sun, fart jokes, FRIENDSHIP! **sparkles**
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can manage to afford to buy a dog as soon as possible.

Vintage furniture, clothes, and housewares. I don't buy much, as I'm broke, but my etsy wishlist is a beautiful monster to behold.

Cover letters. OH GOD cover letters.
On a typical Friday night I am
My typical Friday nights are usually pretty boring or else involve me going to one event, getting shitty drunk on one beer and in bed by 11. I've come a long way since the graduate school bacchanalia.

I DO have a typical Sunday though, which is reading on my couch, drinking coffee, listening to Preaching the Blues on KEXP. Then I go to the farmers market and buy a lot of lovely produce that will inevitably go bad before I can eat it, hit up Vivace for MORE coffee, then come home and clean for the first time in a week. Then I weep a little in the fetal position because Monday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a feminist. Which isn't actually private but separates the wheat from the chaff.

I never learned how to ride a bike or swim.

I hope to someday be that lady who carries a small dog around in her purse*. Maybe feed it table scraps at restaurants, I don't know. I guess how extreme that gets depends on how well this online dating thing goes.

*and/or a cat leash lady.
You should message me if
Man, I don't have an answer to this. I used to ask people to name their favorite X Files episode but that got boring pretty fast, since everybody named the same few episodes. It was a bummer.

Also, are not a libertarian. Libertarians love me, why? WHY? Libertarians, you are the worst. Stay away.
