I'm a secretly shy person who makes up for it by playing the
comedian. I might look all put together, but truthfully I'm an
insufferable goofball. It won't take you long to see that side of
me. I have a very active brain with lots of thoughts. In other
words, I will talk to you and use big words. If you like your women
lovely and dumb, look elsewhere.
I am not a skinny girl, nor am I a fat girl. Ideally, I would be
referred to as a womanly woman. I am so blind without my
glasses/contacts that if we were living in caveman times, I'd have
been left behind for the wolves years ago. Seriously if the
apocalypse happens tomorrow, I'd be completely fucked without these
spectacles. Sometimes I wear cowboy boots. Sometimes I wear a
corset. Sometimes I wear yoga pants and a baggy t-shirt but never
will I wear this out of the house.
What I’m doing with my life
5 days a week I'm an event manager for a rather large and amazing space in Somerville. The days in between I'm a painter, social butterfly, and a really good friend. In other words, I'm a busy lady...
I’m really good at
painting, drawing, dancing around like an idiot, singing, making breakfast (I'm serious, I'm the master of all things breakfast), public speaking, interneting, playing ukulele, fixing things that are broken, just about anything i put my mind to.
The first things people usually notice about me
Lately it's my glasses. They also seem to love my magnetic personality and my uncanny ability to charm the pants off of mostly everyone. Oh and let's be honest, my cleavage is pretty fascinating for most people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
movies: Sci-Fi, mostly every movie that Wes Anderson has ever done,
Breakfast at Tiffany's, Auntie Mame, Star Wars (no not those, the
good ones.) I just saw HER and I loved it.
books: Sci-Fi, Jane Austen, Andy Warhol, and books with pictures in
them (painter), I recently read Patti Smith's "Just Kids" and it
may have destroyed my soul. Right now I'm reading the Song of Ice
and Fire series. Before that I re-read several William Gibson
books. I like Neil Gaiman. I like graphic novels. I even like
TV: I have a giant flat screen, I don't have time to bother with
cable so I watch things on Netflix/Hulu. Lately it's been a lot of
Star Trek TNG and Dr Who binges on my laptop.
music: There isn't a lot of music that I won't listen to as long as
it's well written and performed. That being said I can't tolerate
Taylor Swift, Mumford and Sons gives me an immediate headache, and
if you like TMBG we might have issues.
food: I love vegetables. In fact it's hard to find a vegetable that
I won't eat. I like mostly every animal as well. I also enjoy fish
and most things from the sea. I like fresh, well cooked, well
portioned food and I love eating/cooking with others.
The six things I could never do without
The older I get the more I realize that material things aren't ever
really necessary. Who am I kidding though... I couldn't last a day
in the woods without my iPhone, my spectacles, a bottle of rosè,
and a sandwich preferably with cheese.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Inspiration for paintings, what I want to eat, lost loves, places I
want to visit, things I want to write about and share with others,
song lyrics, songs I can play on my ukulele, whether or not I want
to have children, my drive across country, san francisco, how tired
I am, how to approach people, how much I miss my grandfather, how
much laundry I have to do, why people are often so inconsiderate to
servers at restaurants...
On a typical Friday night I am
having dinner at some awesome restaurant I haven't tried yet, or at
a local dance night dancing my little ass off with my friends, or
out seeing one of my friend's bands, or running off to NYC to visit
people, or sleeping... sometimes just sleeping needs to happen.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Despite the fact that I come across as a crazy party girl, I'm
actually looking for real partnership with someone.
You should message me if
Ok here's where I tell you flat out: I don't want to waste my time
talking to some dude who's idea of a good date is going to [insert
terrible sports bar here], watching football instead of talking to
me, having 12 bud lights, and inviting me to screw in the bathroom.
If you aren't a cool, artistic, creative, person who is pursuing
goals and dreams don't bother messaging me. That being said, I'd
like to talk with people who think painting is cool, even if they
don't know how to paint, people who like art even if they don't
know how to talk about it, people who'd rather spend their last
dime on the hills of Tuscany than never get there because they are
too cheap, people who like to dance, people with an ear for music,
people who maybe wrote a few love poems when they were a teenager,
people with goals and visions of the future, people who are kind to
strangers, and people who will be kind to me no matter what sort of
mood they come home with.
