My self-summary
I'm an adult bookworm who likes good books and good coffee.
What I’m doing with my life
I write and read a lot (both inside and out of work.) I was a history major in college and am still drawn to good stories and projects that require lots and lots of research.
I’m really good at
trivia games, Jeopardy and correctly identifying one-hit wonders.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have really long eyelashes and a distinct voice. I'm also an introvert with an excellent memory. People also notice that I'm good at pop culture and trivia related things.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The best books I've read recently were "Chemistry" by Weike Wang (go read it!) and am about to start "Pachinko" by Min Jin Lee. I also love everything from biographies, mysteries to romance novels.

Movies: I go to the movies a lot and wanted to be one of those people who watches all of the Best Picture nominees, but then I quickly realized that I have no interested in watching Leo get mauled by a bear.

Shows: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, The Daily Show, Law and Order. (I also love PBS and will happily watch any costume drama you put in front of me.)
Six things I could never do without
(not including friends and family): Books, pens, NYtimes.com, grapes, notebooks, coffee.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Inbox zero (I found that the secret is to periodically delete everything after 3 weeks because if you haven't gotten to it by then, it probably is either not very important or it's so important that you've already gotten into trouble.)

Things that create joy and positivity (like a lot of people, I've found that it's been hard to not despair about the state of the world of the last six months or so. I've been actively working to counter that by also focusing on things that make the world better.)

Introversion. I love people and things and conversations, but I have a tendency to be an introvert and constantly need to balance that.
On a typical Friday night I am
hanging out with friends, or alternatively, watching TV after a long week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've seen every episode of Saved By The Bell (including the episodes from the Good Morning, Miss Bliss era).
You should message me if
I like to think I'm fun and interesting. If you agree, let me know.
