My self-summary
I'm going to let these two quotes serve as my self summary:

"Never take it seriously, if you never take it seriously, you never get hurt, you never get hurt, you always have fun, and if you ever get lonely, just go to the record store and visit your friends." -- Penny Lane from Almost Famous.

"In the wild, there is no health care. In the wild, health care is, 'Ow, I hurt my leg. I can't run. A lion eats me. I'm dead.' Well, I'm not dead. I'm the lion. You're dead." - Dwight Schrute

This is how I try to live my life.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a librarian who works in the suburbs, but lives in the city.

I've grown up in Chicago my whole life, but haven't had a chance to truly explore the city in my 20s so that is what I'm doing. I love the outdoors and walk whenever I can.
I’m really good at
making friends. I'm not talking acquaintances or friends you see from time to time. I'm talking best friends, ride or die type of friends. It's a curse really.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'd have to say my eyes (which are hazel) or my laugh. I've been told I have a contagious laugh and I tend to laugh a lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Ferris Beach, Harry Potter, The Great Gatsby, One Hundred Years of Solitude, Midnight's Children, Wuthering Heights, The Dinner, Never Let Me Go.

I just started reading S by JJ Abrams and Doug Dorst. If you read it, let me know what you think!

Movies: The Departed, Kill Bill, Garden State, American Beauty, Bridget Jones' Diary, Thirteen, Blades of Glory, About A Boy, 13 Going On 30, The Royal Tenenbaums, Silver Linings Playbook, This is What We Do in the Shadows

TV: I think South Park may be the greatest show ever created. These are very good too: Veep, Silicon Valley, The League, Parks and Recreation, Game of Thrones, Its Always Sunny, The Office, Arrested Development, How I Met Your Mother, Scrubs, Grey's Anatomy.

Music: I'm obsessed with the music subreddit Listen to This for finding new music. Some bands that I currently listen to are Bastille, The Format, R. Kelly (Saw him in concert a couple Summers ago. He was amazing!), Mumford and Sons, and The Postal Service. French music holds a special place in my heart as well.

Food: Buffalo wings or Caesar salad. Opposite sides of the spectrum, I know. I'm also a huge fan of chocolate.
Six things I could never do without
1. My family and good friends
2. Music
3. Laughter
4. Hair products
5. Some form of technology
6. Books.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
This is so cliche, but the future. I'm trying to not think about it so much though and live in the moment.

Also how I can apply this video to OkCupid.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually hanging with friends after I get off work at the library.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like puns way more than any average human being should.
You should message me if
You have a great sense of humor, you think we would get along, you have a good pun or song you'd like to share with me.

... Or, y'know, if you want to or something.
The two of us
