My self-summary
I'm the girl next door. If the girl next door could kick your ass.

I am irreverent, slightly awkward, and charmingly stubborn
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying my free time. Reading in the park. Planning curriculum for my future after-school program. Visiting the Electric Fetus far too often. Making butterscotch milkshakes. Working on my motivation issues and figuring out what I want to be when I grow up. Rocking the karaoke mike. Going apeshit over adorable puppies. Shoe shopping. Half-heartedly networking. Dreaming of social democracy. Planning road trips I can't afford to take. Wondering why there's never time when there's money and vice versa. Quite a bit of blow*. Playing inconsistent tennis. Researching popular musicology. Soul-searching and the like. Envying Mary Lucia.

*apparently sarcasm doesn't always come across on the page, or screen, as it were.
I’m really good at
Singing. Rationalizing. Pop culture trivia.

The six things I could never do without

Wine with Lori's mom.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How accurate these "personality awards" are. While the two I've received so far (more independent and less old-fashioned) are accurate, I've run across several profiles with statements like "how the hell am I considered 'More Republican'?" and so on. Just a little wary of how I'm being represented...
On a typical Friday night I am
Stalking your mom.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There's usually quite a bit more going on beneath my often glib exterior.
You should message me if
You are smart and funny and relatively attractive and don't find it entirely unreasonable that I once spent my last $20 in the world to see Lou Reed.
