I have no problem making friends in a room full of strangers, making me an excellent +1 to weddings and work events. That said, I couldn't be more thankful for a small handful of my most amazing life-long friendships.
I think Dolly Parton and my Mom effectively sum up how I try to live my life:
-Growing up, my Mom had two rules: Be nice. Work hard.
-Dolly Parton once said, "Figure out who you are and do it on purpose."
I don't know my final destination, but I know what I want along the way. Looking for someone to share adventures and the life that happens in between.
Things I'd like to be really good at: ordering off a long menu, VLOOKUP, driving a manual car, rolling my R's in Spanish (there's a reason I speak French!), sleeping in.
Also, I'm wearing my hair straight these days so friends and even family need a double-take to recognize me if I haven't seen them in a while! It's an unexpected, unintentional albeit fun little game I'm playing:) Need to update pics.
David and Goliath - Malcolm Gladwell
Movies: The Thomas Crown Affair, Rudy, A Chorus Line, Love Actually, Seven, Little Shop of Horrors, Mannequin, Ocean's Eleven
Shows: The West Wing, So You Think You Can Dance (don't judge!), Gray's Anatomy, The League, Breaking Bad, The Newsroom, House of Cards
Music: I pick up music like I pick up accents - unexpectedly and without much effort. I like most of it and appreciate people who have an opinion about it. My iPod is usually on shuffle.
Food: Pretty adventurous and a big fan of the veggies. Can't go wrong with black beans, ice cream, brussels sprouts, and anything Mexican. Can't get on board with olives, pickles, or black licorice. Making a meal for family and friends is one of my favorite things.
