Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have a crazy/awesome/genius 8 year old daughter. I teach high
school English (English IV and English III AP), so bonus points if
you're LIEK GUD AT WORDS N STUFFS. As of august 2014, I'm in a
relationship with a ridiculous, beautiful, dapper girl. 😍😍😍 (and as
of October 2015, I'm married to her!)
I am a smartass with a very dry sense of humor. I am not a thin
person and you can fuck right off if that matters to you. PLEASE
message me telling me I'm a rude bitch. You will become the
laughing stock of the internet. Truth. Same goes for messages
asking me for pictures.
Aside from my daughter and teaching, roller derby is probably one
of the most important things in my life. I play for Alexandria's
team, the Cenla Derby Dames, and I sub for numerous teams around
the state. I have a 10-game-streak coming up but I love every
second of what I do and if this theoretical you + me thing is going
to work out, you have to support it. Period. The end. I am
ridiculously laid back (to my own peril sometimes) so the fact that
this is a non-negotiable is kinda' huge.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Going back to school to get my MA in English, playing derby all
over Louisiana, Texas, and Mississippi, and spending time with my
awesome kid. I'm a huge book nerd, I love to cook (especially
healthy food), and as of recently, I love working out.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
"your mom" would be inappropriate here, wouldn't it? Yeah...
thought so. People tend to think I'm kind of funny, so I guess I'm
really good at.... wit. I'm pretty good at knocking skaters on
their asses, too, so there's that.
I play the guitar and own five (although that doesn't mean I'm good
at playing.) People think I sing decently. If you're interested, go
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Definitely my smile and my sense of humor. I'm a silly bitch, what
can I say?

Oh geez, this is going to take a while.
This section was crazy-long when I originally did it. I love Chuck
Palahniuk, though. Always and forever. I also really liked the Game
of Thrones series!
Anyway, favorite books:
The Road - Cormac McCarthy
Brave New World - Aldous Huxley
Revolutionary Road - Richard Yates
Choke – Chuck Palahniuk
House of Leaves – Mark Danielewski
Geek Love – Katherine Dunn
No One Belongs Here More Than You – Miranda July
Knockemstiff – Donald Ray Pollock
On the Road – Jack Kerouac
Farenheit 451 – Ray Bradbury
Raw Shark Texts – Steven Hall
I'm generally in the middle of three books, so if you're literate,
Beasts of the Southern Wild
Natural Born Killers
The Usual Suspects
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Again, the music list in particular was super long, so instead of a
compilation of what I listen to (it's pretty long and diverse),
here's what's on my playlist right now:
The Civil Wars
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
The Black Keys
James Lee Hooker
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My kiddo.... who is the best, smartest, most awesome...etc.
3. Family/friends. Of course.
5. Existential conversation.
6. Your mom.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. Feminism: why it matters and why none of it matters.
Love: real or nature's way of tricking us into reproducing.
Stereotypes: why we have them and where we'd be without them.
Identity: are we what society has made us, or are we who we build
ourselves to be.
Haha... That's pretty much day in and day out with me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
... well there IS no typical Friday night. Sometimes I like to stay
home, sometimes I like to go to hole-in-the-wall Irish bars, and
other times I look for a little trouble to get into. ;)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a total goofball. That's not really a secret, but be forewarned
- I don't have a serious bone in my body. And I guess as much as I
come off as a hard ass (which I so totally am!), I still want
someone who will love and fight for me as much as I would them.
That's one thing I've never found.
