I'm independent, grounded, and laid back. I love to laugh, and have a very healthy, hearty sense of humor. I spend a lot of time in San Francisco, as that's where I work, and quite a few of my friends live. My job is one that is pretty stressful, so I spend most of my free time relaxing. I like to go out every now and again, but the club scene isn't my thing anymore. I'm more of a casual bar/lounge kinda gal. I love music (HUGE hip-hop head.) I check out live shows whenever my schedule will allow for it.
I like to take drives, listen to music, sleep in, dance, read, watch movies... I am very much a child of the concrete...so while I love to take long walks, and sit by the water...I enjoy exploring the architecture and funky history of the city. I love to travel. Currently planning a trip to Austin for Austin City Limits!
What I’m doing with my life
Im enjoying it. Im on a journey that Im loving. I'm a hard worker,
and I'm working on figuring out the perfect balance of work and
play. I love to learn, and I'm looking to finish my studies, and
really settle into what I'd like to do when I grow up.
I’m really good at
Talking shit. Haha. No, seriously. I'm pretty funny. I have a knack
for quoting song lyrics that are relevant to the conversation. I
enjoy baking, and crocheting.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'd have to say...my smile. I often get teased about the fact that I show pretty much every tooth in my mouth when I smile, but...it's a decent set of teeth so, I'm good with it.

Food:: Anything Asian. Japanese (SUSHI!!) and Vietnamese are my absolute favorite, but I enjoy it all.
Music:: This is so hard. Music is my greatest joy, and I could sit and list forever. So. I love hip-hop. I love jazz. I love soul. I love R&B. I love classical. I love alternative. I enjoy classic rock. I can deal with some country. I feel like I slight artists that I love if I start to list them, and then leave someone out. So. This is a quick overview.
The six things I could never do without
My calculator watch
Journal (and pen)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
A whoooooole lot of random things. I wouldn't even know where to
begin. But, it makes for some very entertaining material, when I
write it down. I enjoy writing, and it comes out in many different
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I count the stairs when I go up/down them. All the time. It's
weird. Perhaps It's because I'm a bit clumsy, and if I count them,
I'm focusing, sure to take each one with care...so I don't fall and
