My self-summary
Not actually a waffle. Not actually needy. Secretly a crêpe.
What I’m doing with my life
Classically trained musician and naturally talented taker of naps. Novice climber of trees and gifted-yet-wreckless upstart in whole "Adulthood" racket. Peddler in trivia, bar-champion of quiz night.

Moved from Brooklyn to Philadelphia about a two years ago (wow), but still feeling like a noob. Spending most of my free time these days still trying to fit in in my new city.

Homebrewer. Olympic Weightlifter. Bipolar individual and mental health advocate. Practicing buddhist. Flexible Nonmonogamist. Feminist.
I’m really good at
My roomie tells me that I'd be "good in the apocalypse," so I've got that going for me

Six things I could never do without
-Glasses (soooo blind)

-Earplugs (I spend a lot of time in front of large speakers)

-A well-stocked kitchen (cooking's my stress reliever)

-Pen & Paper (I seriously never leave the house without my journal)

-My books (comprised 75% of the boxes in my recent move)

-NPR (The soothing drone of Terry Gross is like crack to me; on the inside, I'm really a middle-aged woman from western Mass)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Falcor from the Neverending Story.
On a typical Friday night I am
Bouncing around the city to see some live music. Or at home, in bed, nursing a bourbon and good book.
You should message me if
-If you figured out the secret to balancing ambition and happiness.

-If you can transition seamlessly between a night out at the Symphony and a sweaty DIY house show

-You want to help me build a robot

–If you are weirdly passionate about horror movies and get down 'n nerdy dissecting genre conventions.
The two of us
