My self-summary
I'm a Texas girl but I've adjusted pretty well to life in Maryland. I've been really lucky to make a lot of great friends in Baltimore, but now I'm in Silver Spring for the majority of my week and almost starting over. Help me enjoy DC as much as I've loved Baltimore?
What I’m doing with my life
I work at the headquarters of an international aid agency. My job deals with refugees that are resettled in the U.S. It's why I moved up to MD and I love it!

I love to travel - mostly recently turned a work trip to Austria into a three country 10 day whirlwind.

Always going to events ... live music, festivals, art shows, you name it. I love living in the city because it's hard to be bored! I used to play trivia every week and go to karaoke every so often.

Also, I adopted a rescue terrier mix named Paige and I'm pretty sure she's the most amazing dog ever :). If you meet her, you will likely concur. Unless you think the same thing about your own dog, in which case we can agree to disagree!
I’m really good at
- Crafty stuff
- Empathy
- Singing showtunes (but I won't make you listen!)
- Logical reasoning
- Fixing things
- Planning ahead to find activities for a trip
The first things people usually notice about me
Maybe the awesome craft beer I'm drinking? Does that count?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: My favorite book of all time is Les Miserables. Not ashamed to admit that I love Harry Potter and Chronicles of Narnia. I'm always reading multiple books at once and I have stacks (on stacks) lined up to read later.

Movies: When Harry Met Sally, Spaceballs, (500) Days of Summer, Saved!, The Holiday, Office Space, Life is Beautiful, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, The Princess Bride, Taken, the first 3 Indiana Jones and Star Wars Episodes IV, V, and VI.

TV: I don't watch very much regularly, I tend to catch up in a session off of Netflfix or Hulu. I like Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, How I Met Your Mother, New Girl, Parks and Rec, and shows like Last Week Tonight and The Daily Show.

Music: Ingrid Michaelson, Maroon 5, Lady Gaga, Adele, Lenka, She & Him, Florence + the Machine, The Fratellis, various random stuff. I don't like pop-y modern country but I'm rediscovering and loving classics from Willie Nelson and the like.

Food: I love ethnic food restaurants ... Thai, Vietnamese, Ethiopian, Indian, but won't begrudge a good slice of pizza.
Six things I could never do without
1) My Phone
2) Weekend plans
3) Music
4) People I love (family, friends)
5) Yoga/kayaking
6) A fulfilling career
< not in that order >
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where to go next ... my coworkers and I spend a good chunk of time staring at the maps on the wall and planning how to get around Africa, etc. on a budget.

Not having a car (sometimes positively, sometimes negatively). I do have a license and a ZipCar membership ;) - and no stranger to Lyft or Uber. It's just not worth the investment.

My house in Baltimore! I go back some weekends and there are always projects to tackle.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going out or hanging around the apartment with my roommate and our friends - singing karaoke - listening to live music - watching the Baylor Bears on TV! - reading at Barnes & Noble - sitting at an outdoor movie - kicking ass at trivia - looking for fun things to do around Baltimore/Silver Spring!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am really bad at responding to people when I don't see them in real life. So please be patient with me as I'm not on here often!
You should message me if
You're an interesting person and can recommend a good dive bar in the city.

You want to go see an artsy movie at AFI or try out a new ethnic restaurant.
