I'm a California girl. It's something that I never realized how strongly I identify with until I moved to this city two years ago and couldn't get my favorite ice cream sandwiches without shipping them across the country (It's Its - they're seriously the best thing ever - EDIT: HOLD THE PHONE - Mariano's now sells them - it's a freaking miracle!) Also, West Coast rap clearly dominates over East Coast.
Having acknowledged that the left coast is so obviously the best coast, I do love Chicago and have made it my home, though I can't say I'll ever care about professional hockey.
ENFP-T - this is a thing, right?
Sometimes I rewatch a TV series on Netflix cause I have anxiety about the time commitment of getting into a new one.
On the lookout for someone who will take care of my morning caffeine and sustenance needs so I don't have to deal. I am currently relatively self sufficient, but this would be the optimal situation.
Foosball. But way better playing doubles than on my own. Care to join me?
Oh...and the running man. I do a kick ass running man (usually when songs of the Poison by BBD era pop up). Along the same lines, I'm pretty rad at karaoke-ing "Shoop." Once I did it without the lyrics in front of me and I'm pretty sure I nailed it.

My knives (For cooking - I'm not some crazy weapon girl)
Restaurants (on the hunt for the best delivery pho - Simply It is just passable)
All of the music
Sometimes I'm painting - usually colorful abstracts with acrylics - to decorate my apartment. I don't find it easy or even particularly enjoy it and it takes a lot of time, but I like having pretty things on my walls and the feeling of accomplishment.
"I want a man who can grill a steak without having to cut into it and check if it's cooked, like a little bitch." - SNL - Melissa McCarthy
"It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for – and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing. It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool – for love – for your dreams – for the adventure of being alive." - Oriah Mountain Dreamer
