Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I overuse the word chill. I can't help it.
I'm an introverted extrovert who probably talks too much despite
loving to listen to other people. It can take me a bit to open up,
but once that happens, there might not be any stopping me.
I'm clumsy but think it's hilarious how often I drop things.

I work for a non-profit in the foster/adopt world.
When I'm not working, I'm usually finding new recipes and putting
them in a large folder as I promise myself I'll make them
eventually. It usually takes me about a year to get around to each
I also see movies as often as I can, and Netflix and I are on very
good terms. I used to read voraciously, but have slowed down since
graduating college. I'm trying to get back onto that train. Because
books are amazing.
I was born and raised on the East Coast, which means I spend a lot
of time apologizing for accidentally texting my friends there at 3
in the morning. I've been in California for going on four years.
I'm not really sure where the time went.
I'm incredibly competitive about Trivial Pursuit and Candyland. Any
other games I'm only mildly competitive.
I’m really good at

I own a gross amount of movies and would have difficulty picking
even just a few favorites. Movies I can watch over and over again,
however, include the Harry Potter series, The Princess Bride, Pan's
Labyrinth, Pacific Rim, and many others. I love National Treasure
and have no shame about it.

I'm super fond of young adult books but will read pretty much
anything. I have a soft spot for the Harry Potter series (you might
be noticing a pattern here), To Kill a Mockingbird, Dracula, Good
Omens, The Lace Reader, Gone Girl, and anything Dahl. I dabble in
non-fiction here and there, but I'm definitely mostly a fiction
I'm also always looking for good book recommendations.
I will listen to any music at least once, but I really enjoy most
classical/opera, Top 40, and anything that might be described as
"ethereal witch music."
I love watching Chopped, Good Eats, and Cutthroat Kitchen. If it's
on Food Network, I've probably seen at least a few episodes. Also
into Hannibal, The Whispers, Wayward Pines, OITNB, the X-Files, and
a few others.
