My self-summary
I'm looking for good places/people to spend time with here in Detroit! I am an energetic, intelligent girl and I like to have as much fun as possible, regardless of where I am or the people that I am with! I enjoy reading, writing, watching documentaries and movies, trivia, and game nights, but I'm also a social butterfly that needs to take flight on a regular basis.
What I’m doing with my life
I just moved to Detroit from Albuquerque, NM to work at Wayne State University. I'll be getting my PhD in Rhetoric and Writing, teaching English, and working at the writing center. That's pretty much what I was doing in Albuquerque, but it was much hotter and drier. So far I'm enjoying living in a new place that is very different from the one I was born and raised.
I’m really good at
I'm a people person. It's a love/hate relationship. Mostly love though. I'm also good at writing and general me Clarify! There are several things I'm trying to get better at such as cooking and waking up early.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have very recognizable laughter. My friends can pick me out of a crowd if I'm laughing. And I usually am. Since I've been in Detroit, several people have commented on my smile. Apparently I have a pretty sweet bicycle, also.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love going to concerts, plays, movies, reading books and listening to music. I like to see and experience what humans are possible of creating. My music tastes are varied, but I would have to say hip hop is my favorite genre. Like any musical genre it is divided into Top 40 and independent artists. I like the independent ones most. Aesop Rock, Brother Ali, Mac Lethal, Dead Prez, Commom Market, Blue Scholars. But I can't hate on Jay-Z. He wrote a book and I read it. I also have a healthy appreciation for good 'ol rock 'n roll and electronic music that makes you move. Albuquerque has an amazing hip hop scene that I was very involved in and I'd like to know where the hip hop is here in the D! If you don't believe ABQ has a good hip hop scene, just ask me to send you some tunes. Then you send me some of your favorite local artists' music!
Six things I could never do without
Excellent companions
Delicious food
Delicious beer
Delicious cocktails
Dance parties
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The zombie apocalypse, sandwiches, what book I should read next, fighting a bear, quesadillas, what I should write about next, how exactly do you teach someone how to write, anyway?.....basically I didn't spend a whole lot of time thinking of what to put in this box.
On a typical Friday night I am
Most likely I'm somewhere with good food and beer and I probably rode my bike there, weather permitting.
You should message me if have fingers.
If you enjoy good beer or trying new beers. I am quickly filling my fridge with more beer than food because everywhere I go there are beers that I haven't tried before and I want to try, but I can only drink so much by myself before it gets unseemly.
If you don't have a profile picture of you wearing sunglasses.
If you can compose a first message longer than "Hi! How are you?"
The two of us
