My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm the Program Manager for a non-profit housing agency that helps qualified low to moderate-income families buy permanently affordable houses. This job will make me a multi-tasking queen and a grant writing extraordinaire in no time .

The Bedlam Lowertown is a space where you can see me perform theater-ey things from time to time. I really enjoy performing, volunteering, and just being there.

Through Bolder Options I mentored an amazing girl, and since completion of our mentoring program, I now provide monthly respite care for her. So one weekend a month I am host/mentor to a 16 year old gal. Holy eye opener, Batman!

I cook, and love learning new cooking skills. I went on a baking spree last weekend, and decided that baking's not as bad as I previously thought. My next big project will be making sausage at home. If I can figure out how to be a butcher and maintain paying my mortgage, then that's my next move.

I read a lot, with my book club and on my own. I can also carry a tune, and I enjoy hosting gatherings.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am only OK at falling asleep, but I am really good at finding the most comfortable way to fall asleep.

Other things I am good at? Making people laugh, giving hugs, reading books, planning stuff, shoveling snow, and cooking.

Oh, and wearing glasses.

I am terrible - TERRIBLE - at remembering to take out the garbage.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
If this were real, I could not successfully survive without my glasses.

But really, I need time with people, time alone, books, music, good food, and more of that sort of junk.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The Danish word 'hygge'. Here's the definition off the VisitDenmark website:
'In essence, hygge means creating a warm atmosphere and enjoying the good things in life with good people. The warm glow of candlelight is hygge. Friends and family – that’s hygge too. There's nothing more hygge than sitting round a table, discussing the big and small things in life.'
I think this word is what I love about fall and winter.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I do what I feel like doing. Maybe in pajamas, maybe hosting, or maybe even going out and having fun. Who knows?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
All the terrible crap that's been happening and then is subsequently discussed on social media has made it really easy to identify which people in my life are racist.
