My self-summary
I'm just here in Portland enjoying myself! I work 9-5 processing claims, so I have two fun jobs to remind me that I actually like humankind. I coach lacrosse and work in the beer tourism industry, so there's nothing more fun than sports and drunks! With that being said, I know that makes me sound really busy, but I like it that way. I'm much happier and productive when I have things to do. If I have too much free time, I'm liable to marathon on Netflix.
What I’m doing with my life
I studied art history, then quickly realized there was a bit of a hiring issue. Meaning there is nowhere hiring people with a passion for Baroque art and the grotesque paintings of Caravaggio. So I went back to my home town, found a temp job, and started coaching high school girls lacrosse. And I love it! Now I am coaching nearby and I love that I am giving back to something that I feel passionately about.
I’m really good at
- Baking. Especially to good music.
- Organizing. Although you would never know it based on my apartment. More of a professionally slash academic thing rather than a private thing.
- Telling you what song is playing based on the first few bars. For some reason a brother thought it was important, and decided to constantly quiz me on it in my formative years.
- With that last one in mind, I'm really good at recognizing movie composers and what other movies they've scored. For example, the guy who did the Pirates of the Caribbean movie was ridiculously lazy, because it's the same score as Gladiator.
- Grammar. Good? Bad?
- Looking you in the eye when you talk to me. For some reason it had always felt important.
- Being lazy, when necessary, and often when not.
The first things people usually notice about me
Tough one! I'm always smiling... I will probably talk too much about my dog (she's a brat but I love her)...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read and probably spend too much spare time doing so. I'm the type of person who likes to buy paperbacks of my favorite books and read them over and over again. Some at specific times during the year, like around St Patrick's Day. Although kindle works for the more embarrassing titles. So on that note:

The Historian
Scarlet Pimpernel (the French Revolution fascinates me) and any series mentioning it
The Princess Bride (I own the book and the DVD)
The Hounds of the Mórrigan
Embarrassing children's books that I've always loved.

Sabrina. The Bogart and Hepburn version.
Any sports movie that will make be cry with just enough physical contact (Remember the Titans)
Pride and Prejudice. Yes. I am that girl. And I like all of them. (Fine! The book too!)
Gladiator. I am not joking. My first R movie in a theater, and I can still always watch it.

Walking dead
The league
Big Bang theory
True blood
Game of Thrones
SUITS! And basically everything on USA network
Dexter (when it was on. If you watched it, you know I hated the finale)

I legitimately like everything (that doesn't include heavy metal screaming or twangy county). Music means so much to me. I generally like to bake to 50-60s classics, get dressed to Top 40s, drive to angry hard rock and expletive heavy rap, and just plain listen to classic rock. I like it all, and I find a time for it all. But I you don't like Bruce Springsteen or Neil Diamond, we will never get along:)

Everything but seafood, fish, mushrooms and lamb, for their own reasons. I was vegetarian for a bit, but missed bacon a bit too much for it to be worth it. I love anything with a spice, like Indian, Mexican, and Thai.
Six things I could never do without
My dog
My family
My Disney DVD collection
My rice cooker
My kitchenaide
My fan
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life. What I want to do. What I want to be. How I should go about it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Currently drinking a glass of wine watching some classic movie. But I like to be with friends, I like to have many in multiple cities, and I like to visit them. I'm more likely to go out on Saturday nights than Fridays, honestly. And I definitely prefer dives.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love the Oxford comma, and I am not ashamed.
You should message me if
If you want to meet someone new in this city of amazing food, craft beer, and other amazing things that are better shared.
The two of us
