My self-summary
I'm a Florida girl who's pretty new to Charlottesville. Though I miss home, I love taking advantage of Virginia's fun opportunities. I like being active and outdoors, whether it's going to movies, hiking, camping, skiing, canoeing, going to the beach, playing tennis, raquetball or ultimate, or just grabbing a coffee or beer with friends. I enjoy hosting dinner parties and cooking for other people in general. I am equally happy going to hear an orchestra play, going to a good sports game (hockey is my favorite though football's a close second) and going clubbing (with the right people). I like going to museums because history excites me. I also love trying new things. Traveling is perhaps my favorite thing in the world, as I enjoy meeting people from all walks of life and hearing about their experiences and trying to understand their ideologies. I lived abroad for a year.
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying my great job and trying to figure out what's next.
I’m really good at
I'm a decent wakeboarder. I've been doing it since I was fourteen. This is definitely my favorite sport. I speak Spanish well and I also sing really well.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been called bubbly before.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A Tale of Two Cities, La mitad del alma, Parks and Rec, 30 Rock, Big Bang Theory, etc. Don Quijote is the funniest book I've ever read. I'm reading The Jungle right now. I love war movies, those with a political or historical theme, and period pieces. I like a lot of movies based off novels and/or about historical figures or events, but mostly I like movies that make me think, that teach me something, or that show me gorgeous scenery from far away places. Also like documentaries and am a sucker for romantic tragedies like The Painted Veil and P.S. I Love You. Two of my favorite movies are Midnight in Paris and A Beautiful Mind. Don't get me wrong--I like a good comedy too, but I prefer dramas and action flicks generally.

Love classical music and am trying to get into it more; I took piano lessons for 13 years. I almost always enjoy anything folk-sounding and have a random penchant for fourties' music, especially Tommy Dorsey. I know very little about music except for what I listen to on the radio in the car every now and then. I like learning about artists from other people who know more than I about music (which is nearly everyone I've met thus far). I really enjoy movie soundtracks and my life would be incomplete without John Williams and Alexandre Desplat.

I eat almost everything except for mayonnaise and tuna. I love a good salad as much as a delicious steak or burger. I could never be a vegetarian.
Six things I could never do without
Family, friends, a wakeboard, a passport, a good book, a Spanish-English dictionary.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Literature and how it reflects political movements and history, ideology and perhaps art. How to find cheap ways to spend as much time as possible in Spanish-speaking countries.
On a typical Friday night I am
out with friends, reading or watching a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a life-size cut-out of Han Solo from a long, long time ago. And the first time I saw "Thriller" was in a college class called American Popular Music.
You should message me if
you are looking for someone to hang out with and with whom to have interesting conversations. A relationship would be nice if it gets to that.
