My self-summary

If you're a fan of bulleted lists (and really, who isn't?)
-Capitol Hill
-Erstwhile painter and crafty person
-Kitchen tinkerer

And no I do not consider those first two contradictory :)

Longer Summaries!

Was born and raised in the South (Mississippi by way of Georgia), but I moved up to Seattle couple years ago. The city's strange and wonderful and weird, and so far it's been pretty neat.

I've been informed that I'm essentially a 1950's housewife with a beard. I like baking, cooking, and hosting parties, and actually give a damn about my apartment. Unconfirmed sources also report that I'm trying to learn how to knit. Also love painting (acrylics and watercolors; oils are a bad idea with cats...), and am trying to get more into the art scene in Seattle. Latest attempts are blacksmithing and jewelry-making classes down at the Pratt Center.
What I’m doing with my life
Professionally: Just got my bachelor's from Georgia Tech and am starting out as an engineer. If you see a tiny Brazilian lady around town, it might be my boss, so tell her I'm awesome, even if you've never met me, please?

Personally: Taking care of two cats, Whiskey and Mocha. It's a lot like having two adorable drunk people in the house. Whiskey may or may not be watching me type this now. I'm also taking art classes around the city.

Socially: Cooking comfort food for, sharing wine, and playing games with friends. They tend heavily towards one or more of the letters in LGBT, and just as heavily towards board gamers.
I’m really good at
Cooking! I make a mean southern spread and can bake the hell out of a cake.

Travelling! Always trying to tick new places off my to-visit list. Recently checked boxes include Japan, Spain, and the entirety of the California coast, Iceland, and Scotland.

Art! Well...more like 'sorta good.' I paint watercolors and acrylics, and have been getting into metal work recently as well. Ask me about my bezel sets!
The first things people usually notice about me
My propensity for the word "y'all." I don't get why you northerners find that so dang amusing >:(
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Anything by Neil Gaiman, Brandon Sanderson, or John Scalzi. Major fantasy fan.

Movies: Pixar. Pretty much all of it. May or may not have been watching Wreck It Ralph while setting up my profile. Oh, and Hot Fuzz is England's greatest contribution to society since fish and chips.

Music: On a bit of an EDM kick right now, though I like rock as well. Most recent music on my phone is Tiesto, Paramore, and the soundtracks for "Scott Pilgrim" and "The Book of Mormon"

Food: Anything Cajun, though red beans and rice is my absolute favorite.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where my career will end up. Scheming how to get my family to move up to the PNW so I can see them more often. How I can paint in my apartment without it resulting in a blue cat wandering about (...again). Other crafty things I can do in a small apartment.
On a typical Friday night I am
Beer and cookouts on friends' roofs, board game nights, the occasional bar-hop, weird kitchen experiments, and movie nights.
You should message me if
You want to grab coffee. In person. Friends are great. As are internet acquaintances. But that's not what I'm here looking for.
