My self-summary
It is so difficult to capture someone's personality in writing! I actually find self-summaries really challenging to write for that reason, they usually end up coming off as hollow or too professional (I write a pretty killer cover letter though, lol).

I just graduated from Rhode Island College this past May with a BA in English and two minors in Writing and Film. One of my favorite things that I did while in school was an honors thesis that took two years to complete and totaled around 52 pages once it was finished. The paper was an analysis of gender performance in Disney's beast fables and it is by far my greatest academic achievement. I like to mention this because it is something that I think is really unique about me and I find that it is usually a good ice breaker (and I love to talk about it, so by all means - ask away!)

I also co-founded a local sorority in 2009 with one of my life-long best friends and have been an active participant in Greek life ever since. I saw my organization through the national colonization process last spring where we were officially recognized as a chapter of National Panhellenic Council sorority, Alpha Sigma Tau. I am really passionate about Greek life and all of the good that it can do for both the community as well as each individual member. I have watched women grow tremendously in their confidence and leadership ability with every passing semester and I give my sorority a lot of credit for the assertive, hyper-organized, "take action" kinda gal I have become. I am still actively involved as the Recruitment Advisor for my chapter, trying to spread the word about the positive influence of Greek life and help my sisterhood grow.

I love spending time with my family and friends and I try to live a happy, simple life but that usually doesn't wok out too well because I love to stay busy and have my hands in multiple projects at once. I am currently working as an administrative assistant for the United Way and I am obsessed with my job. I am also beginning to look at graduate programs so I can travel and expand my education - I am a Rhode Islander born and raised but I am not interested in being trapped here forever!
What I’m doing with my life
I am working full-time with the United Way of RI during the week and part-time at Babies R US on the weekends. I love working in the non-profit world with United Way but I am hesitant to give up my retail job and submerge myself fully in "the real world." Besides, I love my coworkers at Babies and I've been there for a long time, so for now it all works out. My main focus right now is on grad school applications and recruiting for AST!

I am also going to be giving a presentation at the PCA/ACA conference in Chicago this spring! I have never been to the windy city so it'll be a fun experience!
I’m really good at
I absolutely love dancing! I used to dance competitively and I miss it all the time. Hopefully I will be taking classes again within the next few weeks when my life settles down a bit! I'm best known for my crazy organizational skills and time management issues (I am chronically late!)

I'm also pretty good at procrastination and wasting time watching TV and playing on Pinterest, haha X] (<< oh and I make those faces a lot, I can't help it they are very expressive)
The first things people usually notice about me
People always tell me I have a nice smile and that I dress well. Overall I strive to be a happy, energetic person who people feel like they can depend on and enjoy spending time with. I am generally an open book and I try to be as transparent as possible with how I feel or what I think about a situation - another characteristic that my friends either love, hate, or love to hate. On the one hand it shows that I am an honest, trustworthy person...on the other hand it marks me as someone who can be a bit opinionated.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV Shows-
How I Met Your Mother *(this is a recent favorite!)
Gilmore Girls
Gossip Girl
Sex and the City
The New Girl
(I know, how much more stereotypically female can I possibly be?)

Harry Potter
The Millenium Trilogy
All Sherlock Holmes Novels and Short Stories
Pretty much anything by Edgar Allan Poe
Mind of my Mind by Octavia Butler
(I'm an English major, so really - do you want me to list ALL my favorites? Nah, didn't think so)

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

I will seriously listen to just about anything. My radio tends to live in the 92.3, 93.3, and 94.1 range for entertainment's sake though. I have a serious soft spot for old school rock and rock (especially Aerosmith!)

I am not a picky person, I've listed some of my favorite things but really I'm open to all genres/styles.
Six things I could never do without
I'm not sure this is a real thing, but I will answer it with the six items I have become increasingly dependent on...

My silly answers:
-Good Coffee
-Designer Purses
-Reality TV
-My Convertible Buggy

My serious answers:
-Loved ones (friends, family, and sisters)
-Passionate/intelligent conversation
-New ideas
-Good Coffee

Although I could probably cover all of those things if you would just let me keep my iPad lol
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All the small and big ways I can make a difference in the world... but mostly, how I can work every day to be the kind of person I want my little sister to look up to.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday nights are my sister fun-nights :) but try to find me on a Thursday and you would have the most luck at the piano bar (free admission and half-price drinks, what beats that?!) Or out with friends all dressed up and raising havoc on any Saturday night!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm really not sure what I am looking to gain out of this "online dating" experience. I am starting off just looking for interesting people to talk to and become friends with. I really love the idea of true, organic encounters that happen by surprise so I am still something of a skeptic - but I am trying to be open minded and just see where this takes me.
You should message me if
Message me if you are interested in talking to someone new. :)
The two of us
