I'm a damn Yankee, living in the heart of Texas. People don't understand me, nor I them. I've been here long enough that I tend to fit in now. Although, my tendency to walk super fast everywhere I go sometimes gives it away. Hot summers > snowy winters. I'll never go back.
I'm quirky, lovey, awkward, reliable, and I guess sometimes I can be funny - depends on the audience. Like everyone else on this site, I love the outdoors and am super into traveling, but I don't do it enough because... money. Lack of it, that is. I can spend an entire day at the greenbelt, prefer biking over driving (when time is not an issue), and would live in the water if it didn't make my skin so pruny. I used to run long distances (3 half marathons and 1 full blown marathon), but got a running injury a few years ago that I haven't fully recovered from (physically and mentally). I'm working on that currently, since I signed up for the Austin Half in 2016.
I'm into writing (all kinds), but it seems like when I became an adult with real responsibility, all my creativity flew out the window. I'm now in a perpetual state of writer's block. However, I do get complimented on my email composition at work CONSTANTLY. That's something! I like other kinds of art too, and specialize in photography (I'm a master at Instagram, not kidding), and I like to paint.
There's lots about me - ask if you want to know anything else.
Driving (you know, for a girl)
Knowing what to do in Austin (I've been referred to as a walking Austin Chronicle)
Making my friends laugh
Settlers of Catan
I was told recently by a coworker that I have a facade of innocence... until I open my mouth around someone in a private setting.

My cat, Rupert
If I should move away from Austin. Or get a tiny house and just move around.
What I should cook for dinner, or for gatherings with friends.
What my cat does all day while I'm not home.
I recently cut back a lot on drinking alcohol. I love craft beer, but don't like getting drunk much anymore.
You shouldn't message me if you've ever subscribed to the 'no fat chicks' school of thought. I realize that sentence alone will yield me infinitely less messages than I already receive now, but I'm not interested in dealing with that sort of attitude. I've been on all sides of the spectrum: from fat kid, to super fit, to slightly overweight... and the variance in which I've been treated by people based off that factor alone is appalling to me. So, if 'a little extra' is a turn off for you - don't even bother, please.
