Meet the West Indian/African-American/Latina New Yorker who loves
books, dancing, graphic novels, and exploring the city. Little
cafes rock her socks, as do video games. All you letters people
will note that she is an INFJ with random moments of shyness
coupled with a dash bit of sarcasm.
What I’m doing with my life
BEING AWESOME. No, not really. But I'm pretty... sweet. c:
Teaching English in Japan, plus continuing my dance studies over
I’m really good at
Having a dry sense of humor, listening to people and helping their
problems, dancing, humming little tunes, being witty, making corny
jokes, NOT writing about myself...
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes. And my smile. And that I never stop moving (even when I'm
half asleep and leaning on a friend's shoulder, apparently).

The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
why some people think I'm cool when I'm seriously a dork.
On a typical Friday night I am
Now working. My weekends start on Saturday, but I'm usually out and
about with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Batman isn't real, guys! hahahaha~
I don't like chocolate. It's not really personal, but it's personal
preference so I'll pretend it is.
And I once scared myself when I was 10 while watching A Christmas
Carol because The Ghost of Christmas Yet-To-Be looked like a
Dementor. Yep. That happened.
You should message me if
you like quirky girls and any part of this made you smile.
Do not message me if your only going to say "hi"
or some cheesy pick up line. (And, honestly, all pick up lines are
cheesy if they're meant to be taken seriously.) If you are,
however, going to use a cheesy pick up line to make me laugh, by
all means go for it. Just be clever. <3
