Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
* I am currently studying abroad in Brazil until July. I'm having
the time of my life all the while trying to "find myself" and
whatnot. :) *
I believe I am far from the average girl. I moved to Raleigh for
about 5 years and now I'm back and somehow still feel like the new
girl in town.
Here are some things you should know about me:
My friends are my family, I see no separation. I hold doors for old
people, but cut others off on the highways. I have tattoos and I
won't apologize for them. I own more band t shirts than I can
count, but I like to dress up on occasion. I work hard, I play
hard. I cannot walk in heels to save my life. I love the smell of
autumn, burnt matches and library books. I believe in ghosts. I am
a responsible procrastinator. I love to laugh and I love making
people laugh. I'll sing really loud to songs on the radio, but only
if I'm alone. I hate alarm clocks. I'm emotional. I can't stand
liars or hypocrites. I tell crazy stories. I love attention, yet I
enjoy my time alone. I'm passionate. I hate fakes. I will never
label myself according to the music I listen to. I am spiritual. I
love learning new things.
I like listing things in succinct sentences that sometimes do not
I can carry on a conversation about anything, because I believe
opinions are free for a reason.
Things I like:
, old Hollywood
, expressive eyebrows
, eye contact
, cute beards
, I-Can't-Sleep phone
, holding hands
, cold weather
, weak knees
I am genuine, passionate, and awesome
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
That's what I'd like to know.
My appetite for adventure is overwhelming at the moment. I want to
travel, go on roadtrips or just pretend to be a tourist in my own
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I love writing, but I have to feel inspired. I can't just force the
creative process or else it will be absolute garbage. I've also
started to sketch/draw again and I'm enjoying it....so far.
I also feel like when someone states something they're "really good
at" I immediately start to doubt their skills. So, here goes
Talking about nothing
Talking too fast
Taking pictures that have more character than expertise
Singing in the car
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My laugh. I feel like people usually hear me before they see me. I
am often loud and usually laughing.
Other than that I would say either my smile or my eyes.
I feel that I come off as a very warm person but I have been told
that when I'm concentrating really hard on something I look like
I feel that first impressions are ridiculously important, to me
anyway, and I often find that I'm disappointed when people don't
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Wow, where to begin.
Literary works of:
-I am obsessed with movies so couldn't even begin to tell you my
favorite ones. Anything from the 80's(ie. The Breakfast Club) or
any historical period piece (ie. Troy, Gladiator, etc) will do me
just fine and also any films with: Jeff Goldblum, Robert Downey Jr
or Mandy Patinkin.
I can't go without MallRats or Empire Records.
-I'm permanently bummed that I can never meet Orson Welles.
-I also have an unhealthy love for Paul Newman as he stars in one
of my favorite movies of all time, Cool Hand Luke.
I don't think I have the strength to list all of my favorite bands.
Music is definitely a huge part of my life, so here goes.
, The Avett Brothers
, City and Colour
, Elvis Presley
, Blink 182

I love spicy foods.
I also love sushi, Italian food and a good southern meal.
I hate tomatoes. I can't decide what I hate more, the taste or the
I also don't like lettuce on warm sandwiches. Lettuce, to me,
should never be warm.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Dr. Pepper chapstick
The basics, really.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-I'm trying to spend more time thinking about the present, the here
and now. But I usually tend to think too much about the future and
what may or may not happen.
Also, what's for dinner.
-On a more serious note, I also tend to think about my escape/life
plan if and when zombies attack the mall while I'm working. I've
worked it out so that I would find all the wire hangers possible
and hoard them in the catwalk above all of the stores and forge
them into weapons. I would also make said catwalk my temporary
hiding place. As far as food and whatnot I might just prefer to
become a zombie because honestly, mall food? Ugh.
-I also think that if I had a time machine I would go back to the
80s and become an international pop-star. Why, you ask? Because it
was after the 70s(who wants to wear THAT much brown?) and before
the 90s (where the invasion of having to be uber-attractive almost
to the point of being unusually perfect ruins my chances of getting
by on my personality alone HAH). Also because I love to dance like
a fool to upbeat songs and I don't mind overdosing on hairspray.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I would like to say either working or out hanging out with friends.
But lately its leaning towards usually working.
I enjoy being social but also love staying in.
I love getting friends together and going to watch a movie on its
I used to love going to see bands play at all the amazing venues
around town but lately my love has faltered.
I also love going on day trips to nowhere. Give me a good playlist
and weird attractions/landmarks and we're set.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm terrified of failure and disappointment.
But I'm slowly learning to accept things as they are and quit
freaking out about things that haven't even happened yet.
