My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an over-achiever with a helping-people complex, a nerd, and a lot of friends say that I'm a good friend, except for the fact that I'm difficult to get in contact with.

I'm frequently away from my phone, and when I'm around it, I don't enjoy texting. I like people who call and who want to chat; I also like people who wave at people they know on the street (as a nerd/dork, I appreciate other nerd/dorks). I'm better known for writing my friends long emails or handwritten letters than texting back.

I may not be the most attractive woman in the room, but I know that I'm honestly a good and kind person, and I try my hardest not to hurt others through words or actions. I'm the type of woman who wins over entire families the first time I meet them; grandparents love me, mothers adore me, and the kids always want to know when I'll come back to hang out with them again.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a teacher and a student (literally, not just in the metaphorical sense). I'm a graduate student at a small private school in Boston.

I am a novice hiker; my goal is to work my way up to hiking the Badlands before my 30th birthday. Preferably on clear nights, when the stars will be out in full.

I travel frequently. This year on my spring break, I went to Niagara Falls. When I moved out here, I stopped in Gettysburg, PA. Last year, memorial day, I was in DC. And the amount of small trips I've taken between the larger ones have been innumerable. I've been to Europe, the Caribbean, Canada (I know, not that impressive, but I liked it! Even the pharmacy for cheap meds with my grandma...) and up and down the east, south, and midwest. I'm hoping to go west soon, beyond visiting family in Seattle, WA, and hit many national parks along the way.

The thing that most people tell me is cool that I do (and without fear), is travel multiple days, by car, and on my own. Give me an empty stretch of road anytime, and I'll be happy.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
reading people and their moods, helping others with situations that they find troubling, giving hugs, and sharing love. I'm a good cook, I'm a good crafter (I do a lot of crafts when I start to feel bored), and I'm really good at comforting babies who can't help but cry.

If there were another section about things I'm terrible at, I would say that I'm terrible at singing, taking my own advice, and taking care of unwanted pests in the home. (Especially mice. I nearly fainted once and had to call the building manager to come take care of it while I was standing on top of my couch in my pajamas.)

I love reading. I've read a lot of books in the last year, and I'm always working on something new (or five or six new things). I just finished Erin Morgenstern's "Night Circus", and I just finished a few books for school, all young adult novels that were pretty good.

I've been watching a lot of documentaries lately, everything from the paranormal to oppression in India. I also tend to go to the movie theater when I'm feeling stressed out. Fortunately, that means that I've seen quite a few new movies this year. I'm a HUGE Marvel Cinematic Universe fan, and love watching new (and old) Marvel TV shows and movies.

My favorite shows are the Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Supernatural, and Sherlock. I keep up with Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and Agent Carter, and I also watch a lot of shows like American Pickers, and Hoarders ("One makes me feel bad about hoarding, and the other makes me feel good about it.")

I'm most into mellow indie-rock bands, 90's alternative, and brit rock. I enjoy hearing new (to me) music, and I've just started listening to this podcast by KEXP called Music that Matters. Great podcast. I also just got a new car with Sirius XM, and I'm ecstatic. There are a couple cover bands in the city that I try to see when they play as well, so expect me to drag you along to one of their shows.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Hugs. Humans need 8 hugs a day to feel happy and secure.
2. Planner. I have a pretty busy schedule, so I need to keep organized.
3. The Armadillo in my living room. I tried to give him away, but he made his way back to me.
4. Coffee. I tried to go a week without a coffee machine, but I broke down and bought one that had a self-brew cycle. There is nothing better than waking up to the smell of fresh brewed coffee.
5. Netflix and Hulu. I tend to binge watch tv.
6. Blankets. Because they're the only things that keep you safe at night.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Depending on the day: what I would do in the event of a zombie apocalypse (and what if my life was like a zombie apocalypse... "man, walking in this mall sure was a bad idea"), cute things, cute people, and random trivia.

I think about creating and hosting a children's tv show that is like Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood, since I feel there is a huge gap in children's entertainment and the things they should be learning in school.

Also, you know how places have scents? Like you go to your childhood home and it has this family scent, and then you go to your grandparents house and it has another scent. I'm constantly frustrated by the fact that I can never get my home to smell as good as my childhood home and I have NO idea what my mom and grandparents do differently. I spend a good deal of time thinking about that too.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At a movie, hanging out in parks, star/moon gazing, reading new books, enjoying a nice dinner in celebration of making it through an entire week, spending time with friends, or sleeping.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm learning to play the concertina (a tiny accordion), and I've almost mastered "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" in just a couple of days. I'm kind of proud. I have no music ability.
