My self-summary
-I like lists!
-Originally from New Jersey, and I lived in New York and Michigan before moving to Charlotte.
-I'm a Plaza Midwood girl, so you'll often find me at the local neighborhood haunts.
-Love live music, especially shows at the Fillmore.
-Drink a lot of coffee. Followed by more coffee.
-Believe that the best conversations are had late at night/very early in the morning, preferably over stiff drinks.
-Speak my mind. I don't sugar-coat much. Straight shooter.
-Stay fit and am partial to taking long runs outside, especially if it's raining a little bit.
-Miss the snow. I never thought I'd say that, but absence makes the heart grow fonder and all that.
-More "type A" than "laid-back."
-I care about what's going on in the world and I make an effort to learn about it.
What I’m doing with my life
I came to Charlotte for my job (I know, yet another transplant), and I'm working as a public interest lawyer. I love it. So much. I get to meet lots of great people, and I like helping them when I can. (Plus, I get to yell "Objection!" on a regular basis, so that's fun.)
I’m really good at
All things baking and cooking. I always enjoy experimenting with new recipes and ingredients. I was raised in a very bland household, so discovering spices has been an awakening for me.
The first things people usually notice about me
My friends say it's my legs. I prefer to think it's my biting wit.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A non-exhaustive list:

Books: far too many to name. Anything historical fiction (especially if they're set during WWII); sci-fi/fantasy is cool, so is suspense, and I'm on a funny-lady memoir kick right now. Currently (or recently, depending on when you see this) reading "City on Fire;" I have mixed feelings so far.
TV: is it streaming and can I watch the whole series in a long weekend? Some faves include Sherlock, Orphan Black, Breaking Bad, Parks and Rec, Archer, Broad City, BoJack Horseman, or whatever is up next on my Netflix queue.
Music: St. Vincent, Lord Huron, MS MR, Florence + The Machine, First Aid Kit, LCD Soundsystem, Ben Howard, Avett Brothers, Faded Paper Figures, Robyn, Laura Marling, Cat Power, Bon Iver, Jose Gonzalez...your basic indie/folk stuff.
Food: anything. Seriously. Anything. Except meat. So, maybe not anything.
The six things I could never do without
Red wine
My cats
JUSTICE
Coffee
Sweet tunes
NPR
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Making fancy cocktails. I've just gotten into this and am working on my home bar.

And new running routes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Heading straight from work to happy hour, and then transitioning to a low-key evening. There's nothing quite like relaxing HARD at the end of a long week. Thursday and Saturday nights, however, are another story.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Gotta leave some mysteries intact.
You should message me if
you are not an enemy of fun.
