My self-summary
I'm outgoing, fun-loving, and funny on occasion. 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 pretty open-minded, and down to try most things at least once. My idea of a good time ranges from enjoying the great outdoors to dancing to online window shopping to cooking to watching documentaries to playing with my dog... or we can have a drink (beer, wine, bourbon...it all appeals to me).
What I’m doing with my life
Just finished my Ph.D. at UT-Austin. New to the city (incoming professor at Florida State).
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 (seriously, I've won contest money more than once).
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 and some are, well, not so visible.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have pretty eclectic musical taste, and listen to just about everything but heavy metal. My ideal music collection has everything from Jay-Z to Nat King Cole to Edith Piaf to Sugarland to The Black Keys to Prince to Nirvana to Yo-Yo Ma to Tchaikovsky/Mozart/Bach to Erykah Badu to Jidenna... 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. This makes me realize I need to seek out more women directors (love you, Ava DuVernay and Gina Prince-Bythewood).
Six things I could never do without
- my dog, Kira
- my phone (gotta talk to my folks at least once a week)
- my bed
- books
- music
- 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 have an idea about what covfefe means.

...you think the "Thanksgiving" episode of Master of None, Season 2, is an epic piece of television.

...you miss Sense8 and Underground as much as I do.
