i'm inquisitive, slightly complicated, and unapologetic. i am also
a walking contradiction because i tend to apologize for things over
which i have no control. i am incredibly empathetic, and incredibly
loyal. i talk a lot.
i am rarely serious but i am always sincere.
i am Myself. Always.
What I’m doing with my life
i majored in English at VCU, and minored in British studies, mostly by default—i have a certain affinity for British literature.
i ride horses.
Presently, i'm doing life.
I’m really good at
Witty banter. Laughing at all situations in life. Being
spontaneous. Excessively using ellipses. Not ending sentences with
prepositions (even in speech). Dissecting literature. Using
parentheticals within parentheticals. Seeing all sides. Playing
with words. Being self-reflective.
Being appropriately immodest and inappropriately humble.
The first things people usually notice about me
i put them at ease.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
i'm working through a reading list (which i assigned to myself), that includes Joyce, Nabokov, Woolf, Hesse, Anais Nin, etc. and more (as pretentious as all of that name dropping sounds, i'm a lit major who hasn't read some of the most prominent/influential/profound works in the "canon"...My Bad)
Otherwise: Jane Austen, British Romantics/18th/19th century British novels, Oral History, Harry Potter(yup), and some shameful guilty pleasures (ie. i've read all of the True Blood books)
Movies: (top 5) Good Will Hunting, Dead Poet's Society, Anne of Green Gables, Mean Girls, Stoker
An odd list perhaps, but i will defend every choice.
Music: Brand New and Fleet Foxes are two of my juxtaposed favorites.
The Weepies, Bon Iver, Emiliana Torrini, Feist, Iron & Wine, Lydia, Band of Horses, Silversun Pickups, The Milk Carton Kids, Say Anything, The Lumineers, Agnes Oban, The Shins, Prairie Empire, Rilo Kiley, et cetera, and then some...
i love good, simple food.
Food is passion, and wine is pleasure...and Manhattans please me very much, as well.
The six things I could never do without
kissing. music&books. NPR. laughing. front porch/river drinking on awesome summer nights. rolling countrysides(i am an equestrian, through and through). snow: all 4 seasons really. being ridiculous. texting(cringe). dusk&dawn.
...Romanticism (capital R)
#6: My Intuition.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
um, everything. life is absurd, and our existence is both vast and obsolete. i think about it.
mind over body.
the Oxford comma.
thinking. i'm way metacognitive...hahaha...but really...
On a typical Friday night I am
that all depends...on things, typically...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i put honey in my coffee.
i still buy cds.
i love Christmas. Love. The season is enchanted for me.
i am a terrible speller.
You should message me if
your idea of a great evening involves a field, a blanket, wine, and the stars.
(Oh, and lots of laughter)
this may sound like a TERRIBLE cliché, but really, it's awesome.
you aren't threatened by a headstrong girl...my will is a force of nature...
Sarcasm and Wit are never far from the tip of your tongue.
