My self-summary
Californian who lived in Melbourne (Australia, not Florida) for the past two years by way of Boston, Massachusetts (for a year) and London (for four years).

Lefty politically, writer, lover of coffee and natural wine, occasional baker of banana bread, educator, adventure seeker.

Profile name is an homage to the cleverest tumblr of all, marrying my unironic love of Beyonce and US politics:
What I’m doing with my life
-freelance writing about pop culture, coffee, food, wine, politics, etc
-planning adventure always

I just moved back to the USA and I'm currently job (and city) searching, writing, swimming, making wine, eating burritos, and enjoying the last minutes of summer.
I’m really good at
-traveling light
-finding good coffee
-making chili
-writing letters
-knowing/ rapping all the words to "Baby Got Back" (because I'm a feminist)
The first things people usually notice about me
Dreamy curls
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Zadie Smith and Caitlin Moran for their beautiful thoughts on London. Lucky Peach and Render Food Mag for their cultural critique.

Broad City, Grace & Frankie, House of Cards, AC360, Kitchen Cabinet (Australian food and politics show that's amazing)

Belle & Sebastian, 60s girl groups forever. Chvrches and Børns this week. The National for train journeys.

Degustations with funky wine pairings, sloppy burritos, avocados for days, specialty coffee, Nashville fried chicken ...all about consumption of things that are good because they're made with good ingredients (food, wine, coffee, etc). You could call me a food/ drinks snob and you'd be judgy, but you'd also be correct.
Six things I could never do without
1.) my iPhone
2.) yoga
3.) cheese
4.) news/news-ish websites (CNN, NY Times, Jezebel, Gawker)
5.) my passport
6.) my friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I'll move in the USA.

Social justicey things that keep bleeding hearts up late at night wondering.

Cuisine and what to write about it.

My dream job.

Road trips.
On a typical Friday night I am
consuming, ideally dancing...not doing enough of that, gabbing
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I were reading my profile I'd be annoyed by the shifting list formatting.

I've never seen Casablanca. You want deeper than that, you need to buy me a drink.
You should message me if
You like road trips. You're happy with where you are in your life (you have your shit together). You're an ally. Your friends would agree that you're open-minded, generous and funny. You're from continental Europe or the UK (...and want to marry me for a visa. Just kidding. Sort of).

You can be critical of the status quo and feel really grateful in equal measure.

You think drinking wine in bed is an excellent use of a Tuesday night.

Or, like, any other reason.*

*but you have to make me laugh
The two of us
