I am a recent transplant to Phoenix from Michigan. After graduating with my second Masters degree from the University of Michigan and taking a year out of the profession working at Starbucks, I moved out here to have a fresh start and be closer to my dogs (and of course my twin sister with whom they live).
After being in Phoenix for 2 months, I found a job in my field as an architect and planner for a large corporation. I started a few weeks ago and I am enjoying it so far. I am still working at Starbucks on nights and weekends for the time being.
I grew up camping and fishing during the summer and going to Cedar Point as much as possible. I love to read when I get the time, which isn't that often. I enjoy going out on weekends, either dancing or just having drinks with friends. I try to live a pretty casual life but I always have a million projects going on. I am definitely up for going to new places and having new experiences.
I like to work with my hands, be it refinishing furniture or painting (rooms or art). There is also nothing better than the feel of pencil on paper when it comes to drawing. I also sew a lot. My current profile picture is of the Renaissance festival clothes I just finished.
What I’m doing with my life
I just got my first job in the architecture and urban planning profession. It is great to have a set schedule. Still working a second job at Starbucks for the time being. We will see how long I can handle both jobs.
I’m really good at
Organizing. Probably a weird thing for me to be good at, but at least I'm honest.
I would like to think that I'm a good friend. I'm always willing to drop anything I have going on to help a friend out with anything. Even if it's hard work like helping someone move or renovate something.
The first things people usually notice about me
I tend to talk a lot. I don't really mean to, it just happens. I am
also a twin, so that is pretty noticeable when we are together.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I like to read basically everything except science fiction. I tend to read historical based books with a bit of romance in them.
I have a short attention span so I don't go to the movies that often but I love watching movies at home. I like romantic comedies and drama, any movie with a complex plot and not a lot of gore. I recently started watching Dr. Who.
I love to try new foods. I really liked african food when I was in Senegal. I love mexican food and eat it whenever I get a chance. I'm always willing to try new dishes, especially anything spicy.
The six things I could never do without
Phone. It's the only way I can stay I contact with some of my friends.
Family(especially my twin and grandma)
My cats! (I have an 11 year old cat and a 5 month old kitten.)
My dogs! (Really my sister's dogs. So glad I just moved to Phoenix to be around them.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Was moving to Phoenix the right decision? New city so now I need to learn about it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sleeping... Most Saturday's I have to be at work by 6 am.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Still not sure what I think of living in Phoenix. It is weird living in a place where I don't have any friends of my own. Just my sisters church friends. I don't go to church, which makes it bit weird with them. Definitely need to get involved with some things of my own.
You should message me if
You want to chat or are interested in going out. I'm always up for making new friends and going new places. Especially being I have only been in Phoenix a few months.
