I graduated with honors from Webster University in 2011 with a major in English Literature and minors in Women's Studies, Philosophy, and Media Communications.
I currently work as a content specialist (glorified editor and project manager) for an online freelance management service. It's a stressful job and I work long hours but I'm lucky enough to say that I love what I do.
Above all I'm really attracted to people who are both intelligent and passionate. I would rather stay in and talk than go out and fist pump in the club. I love that fiery look in someone's eyes when they're talking about something they really care about. It's a big turnoff for me when a person doesn't have at least one thing in their life that they can get really excited about.
Some things I get excited (talking) about: Feminism, David Foster Wallace, LGBTQ rights, institutionalized racism, anarchism, drug laws, police brutality, religion and spirituality, gender, hockey, conspiracy theories, Jenny Lewis, existentialism, mountains, aliens, etc.
While I like to discuss important issues and have deep conversations, I also think I have a good (sometimes dark) sense of humor. I absolutely LOVE to laugh and make others laugh. Life is serious enough as it is, and we can all use a little more funny in it.
As I mentioned before, I'm not a big partier and I'm a bit of an introvert, so I generally prefer ordering pizza and watching Netflix than going out somewhere. I'm also a super picky eater, so good luck taking me out to dinner! BUT I do like to go out and have a good time when the occasion calls for it; I'm not *totally* boring. Like... Have you ever played demolition ball?! So dope.
I'm super low maintainence. 99.9% of the time I'm in jeans and a tshirt. I haven't worn heels since prom, and I almost never wear makeup. If you're into super feminine women (and there's nothing wrong with that!) I'm probably not your gal. :)
Movies: "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," "The Big Lebowski," "Mad Max: Fury Road" (I want to see it again!), "Don Jon," "Chasing Amy," "Super High Me"
Shows: "Roseanne," "Law and Order SVU," "House," "30 Rock," "Garfunkel and Oates," "Cheers," "Louie," "United States of Tara," "Maron"
Music: JENNY LEWIS (I want to marry her), Rilo Kiley, Andrew W.K., Bon Iver, Tallest Man on Earth, Deer Tick, Zeppelin, Modest Mouse, Incubus, Rage Against the Machine, Jay-Z, Hendrix, Missy Elliott, Tegan and Sara, Fleetwood Mac
Food: I'm a super picky eater. My staples are pizza, burgers, chicken, steak, and toasted ravs. I don't eat cheese or pasta.
I don't shave my legs. At least not very often.
