I love to laugh and I have a very outgoing and crazy/weird (in a fun way) personality. As Cameron Diaz said, "I'm not ashamed to be a bubbly, funny person. It's just as valid as being a brooding one." That's pretty much what I go by.
I am also a huge nerd and take advantage of every opportunity to learn something new. I love to have fun and will try (almost) anything at least once. I also love to travel, I love to get up and go to new places and get away.
I am originally from New York City (I actually grew up on the UES, I'm not claiming to be from there just because I spent a year or two there), and try to go back every chance I get. I'm definitely a New York girl, but I have a soft-side as well. So don't be scared. ;)
And I'm the girly-girl who loves sports and cars. A lot. (I actually went to school for sports journalism, before finding my true calling.) But I'm also the girl who will dance and sing around my room for hours in absolute bliss. I like to think I'm a nice, rounded combo.
I thought it might be nice to meet some people while I'm there, especially because there is a good chance I'll be moving back if all goes well.
I'm also very passionate about what I believe in and want to do with my life, which people seem to notice pretty quickly, and like. I don't think I'm preachy about it, just knowledgeable and easily excitable about certain topics.
I like to read non-fiction or books relating to current events/topics, such as Half the Sky, Confessions of an Economic Hitman, and A Thousand Splendid Suns.
I own all the Die Hard and Lethal Weapon movies, but I also have been known to watch the occasional chick flick. I'm really into documentaries and films based on real events. So basically I'll watch anything as long as it's not a horror movie. Too scary!
I can't live without House, Glee and Jeopardy.
I'm a music omnivore. Currently I'm obsessed with Young the Giant, Punch Brothers, The Black Keys, The Lumineers, and I always listen to lots of classical. I'm not a big fan of rap or metal... I find them a little grating...
And I will eat anything, but unfortunately I'm allergic to meat (I still will take little bites though. I miss being a steak girl). But I LOVE to cook. I'm actually considering going to culinary school for no reason other than pure pleasure.
-Like showing people around Cape Town and don't mind that I will be COMPLETELY out of my element.
-You're fun and like to go out and try new things.
