My self-summary
I'm a mix between Californian and Southerner. I spend too much money on coffee and take far too many photos of my cats. I have a career that I enjoy and work with some very fun, if challenging, people. I'm one of those people who prefers to support local business and makes a habit of striking up a conversation with strangers. I like to garden, and I will talk about it. Be forewarned. If you're into gardening, I'm down to help you in yours!
I have what I call an extroverted introvert personality. My sense of humor is a mix between self depreciation, sarcasm, and bad puns. I relish cheesy jokes. I am not quick to genuinely anger, and am very confident. I like who I am, cherish where I've been, and I am enthusiastic about the future. I am extremely independent and have what I've been told is a very strong personality.
I'm not one of those people who spends a lot of time in front of the television; I haven't had TV in 8 years. I enjoy reading, listening to music, and exploring. The bar and club scene has never been my cup of tea, but museums, antique auctions, and coffee shops are right up my alley. I've taken to trying to find places that ease my homesickness, and I've found a couple that I'd be willing to share if you're game.
What I’m doing with my life
I moved to the Twin Cities two years ago from the Deep South, and I'm still exploring.

I wish I were using my degree for more than personal enjoyment, but I do like my career very much.

I just got a Russian hamster named Boris. He's small, furry, and fights for the proletariat daily... When he's not eating sunflower seeds.
I’m really good at
Nerdy references, silly walks, caffeine consumption, and the Oxford comma.

I'm also the token Bama fan in this state, it seems. I am unrepentant. Roll Tide.

I've also been told I should do voices for cartoons-- interpret that as you see fit.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my bright red hair or my distinctive laugh. I've been told it carries.

When I'm either really happy or upset, my Southern drawl comes out to play.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I really enjoy non fiction books, mainly history based, and if you can recommend any, I'd love to hear from you!

I'm a huge fan of horror and comedy movies, of which I have not seen too many lately.

I don't really watch television, but I do have a soft spot for Star Trek, Bob's Burgers, Rick and Morty, Mr Robot and a few others.

As far as food, I am not too picky, but my biggest weakness is miso, and lately, Vietnamese.

Right now, the soundtrack to my life consists of Kimbra, Trombone Shorty, and Florence and the Machine, Robyn, Caravan Palace, Parov Stelar, Bastille, Alabama Shakes, Die Antwoord, Peter Fox, and Sido. And I just discovered the Night Riots-- why has no one told me about them?!
Six things I could never do without
Lip balm.
Eyeliner. Sometimes excessively.
And lately, my hi-vis safety gear. I'm very fashionable.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether I have enough burnt orange pyrex.

The answer is consistently no.

Currently: how awkward the left side of my head is now that I'm growing out my side shave.

Also, this says I'm suave? Since when?
On a typical Friday night I am
I usually start work early, so Friday nights are relegated for being cozy and treating myself to some good food.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a hard time deciding what to message people.

And I've been accused of being a hipster, but you can decide for yourself on that one.
You should message me if
You are at least okay with tattoos, have a good sense of humor, and would like to get a coffee. Or, if you know of a good local coffee shop. Have a garden? Want to help in my garden? If so, talk to me.

If you want to go drink heavily after the results of this election, I'm game. Dear lord, I need to drink this away.
The two of us
