im a big family person. thats a double-entendre, because im super close to my extended family, and there are also an obscene number of us.
I am an activist for all human rights & gender equality.
I practice faith, forgiveness, & loving my neighbour more than religion. I believe in God, but you may not, or you might have a different God, and both are okay. I won't try to change you.
i like helping people and making things.
i would dance from place-to-place if this was an acceptable means of travel.
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a counselor at a boarding school for girls with emotional and behavioral disorders.
I make art and sometimes sell it.
I dance and perform around Asheville with some pretty amazing ladies.
I’m really good at
illustrating, spelling, being sarcastic, empathizing, dancing
ridiculously, losing my phone/keys, creating awkward moments,
procrastinating, hiding small braids in my hair and finding them
later, embarrassing myself, eating pie, petting puppies, taking
bubble baths, laughing until it hurts.
The first things people usually notice about me
my inability to make decisions. my generous backside.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
indie rock. funk. electronica. soul. mash-ups. folk. americana. select hip-hop. postmodern jukebox. alabama shakes. mariah carey. outkast. CAKE.
YA-lit. comedic memoirs. short stories.
B-horror. Rom-coms. Big. Ghostbusters. Home Alone. Mean Girls. Clue. Jurassic Park.
Bob's Burgers. The IT Crowd. Parks & Rec. Seinfeld. Full House. Criminal Minds.
i love food. just, all of it.
The six things I could never do without
(im doing duos for some because last I checked, this wasn't for a grade)
1. family/friends and a means of traveling to see them
2. The ability to dance & create.
3. a music-playing apparatus & danceable tunes
4. long-sleeved t-shirts
5. Mexican food
6. a vast film library at my constant dispense
I spend a lot of time thinking about
making it in the real world. finding a dude for realsies. kittens. things I could craft. being a kid. going on adventures. tasty food I want to nom. why people drink milk. how to get discovered at karaoke and sing in a soul band.
On a typical Friday night I am
hanging out with interesting folks. at a bar enjoying a local craft
beer. singing off-key to karaoke classics. dancing to live music
and causing a ruckus. watching netflix by myself with a bottle of
wine because im a boss.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i squeal with delight when i see small, furry animals.
You should message me if
you... want to learn why pie is so dear to my heart. find quirkiness charming. are open-minded. are fluent in sarcasm. want to chat over a local beer or three. can dance decently or do not mind embarrassing yourself trying. actually live in the same city as me. like intelligent conversations with offbeat ladies, and can start one with more than "hey. how's it going? you're cute."
im a good girl and i want a decent guy and i do not think that is too much to ask.
