My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am the feminist daughter of a librarian, which helped me develop into a bookworm. I can be a bit of a nerd, and socially awkward at times. I wear my heart on my sleeve, even though it always ends in heartache. I am a Texan who moved up to Chicago six years ago.

I love vintage fashion from the 30's, 40's and early 50's. I just started taking swing dance lessons.

If you have a Handlebar or Imperial mustache I'm already smitten by you.

I have been told that I am a bit of a music and film snob, but I call it knowing what I like. I bake when stressed out. Music is a big part of my life, one-day hope to meet someone who I can merge my music collection with.

Sometimes I toy with the idea of starting a bluegrass band or a punk group with a 60's girl group twist.

I'm in search of meaningful interaction and connections.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work doing freelance work. And take care of other people kids part-time. If I have free time, I'm reading and trying my hand at making comics. Listening to music while cuddled up with a book (I'm good at pairing the right album or playlist, with whatever book I'm reading). Working on zines. Going to shows. Going to galleries. Any time I get to use my free time baking is pretty much a good day.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a pretty good listener and conversationalist. I'm that person people call late at night with an issue, and ends up staying up with them until the wee hours of the night.

I have a knack for turning awkward situations into something to laugh at; it’s a skill that has taken me years to prefect.

I've become pretty awesome in the kitchen and turning non-vegan recipes vegan.

Dancing like no one is watching. In fact the quickest way to my heart is going with me to The Green Mill, Windy City Soul, or Neo.

Oh, and I’m pretty awesome at creating road trip playlist.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been told the way I smile. Followed by my awesome glasses. I'm usually wearing an outfit that consist of some band shirt, paired with a hoodie or sweater and skirt. Trying not to be noticed but ended up laughing at some joke I overhear.

I have every birthday and holiday card ever given to me. Along with most of the notes I passed in high school.

I have a happy dance for every occasion.
