My self-summary
I'm outgoing, fun-loving and funny on occasion (or at least that's what people tell me). I really love to laugh, so being around other people who have a sense of humor (and an appreciation for sarcasm) is necessary. I'm very open-minded, and down to try anything once. My idea of a good time ranges from enjoying the Texas sunshine to dancing to shoe shopping to cooking to watching documentaries to playing with my dog... or we can have a beer. Or a glass of wine.
What I’m doing with my life
Just finished my Ph.D. at UT-Austin. Also the youth's favorite professor.
I’m really good at
Having fun no matter where I'm at. I try to make the most out of any situation.

Oh, and karaoke. I'm the karaoke queen.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a lot of hair. When it's curly, people tend to be really fascinated by it.

Also, I have several tattoos. Some are pretty visible, like the ones on my foot and forearms, and the rest are, well, not so visible.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This is a hard, because I have a TON of books, films, music and food that I like... I have pretty eclectic musical taste, and listen to just about everything but heavy metal. My music collection has everything from Jay-Z to Elvis Presley to Edith Piaf to Sugarland to The Black Keys to Prince to Nirvana to Yo-Yo Ma to Erykah Badu... I also like film scores.

Books-wise, my library is either academic stuff or it's fantasy-fiction novels. I have the entire Wheel of Time series and the A Song of Ice and Fire series. I'm always open to suggestions, though... sometimes I worry I'll never get around to reading anything just for the fun of it.

Food is easy. If it tastes good, I'll like it.

Film... also really eclectic. I love critically-acclaimed and absolutely terrible movies, and I honestly can't pick a favorite. The most common directors in my collection are Tarantino, Spike Lee, Spielberg, Scorsese and Judd Appatow.
Six things I could never do without
my dog, Kira
my phone (to keep in touch w/ all the important people in my life)
my bed
oh, and football.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...how things are socially constructed.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing at home, catching up on shows I DVR'd during the week and drinking wine.

I do like to go out once in a while. Love a good dance party.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I find YA novels (and their subsequent film versions) entertaining. Despite their penchant for teenage love triangles and hokey "love" scenes, they're an easy way to escape academic reading for a little while.
You should message me if
...you still think the MJ Crying meme is hilarious.

...you have thoughts on Jessica Jones or Daredevil (since I'm on top of my Netflix game for once!)
The two of us
