My self-summary
Okay so here's the deal, I'm terribly bored... and frankly, it's
exhausting constantly being on the look out for a nice man in the
dirty streets of LA. My name's Erika (obviously). I'm generally a
friendly, down to earth kind of girl- but, honestly, I get a bit
snarky and sarcastic sometimes. Some of my friends and family might
say that I'm neurotic, I like to call that quirk. I'll admit I am a
little immature, but not as in "reality TV" drama.. more like crazy
silly fun. Also, I always seem to be up really late. I often enjoy
"making things" late at night. For a good majority of my life I
have aspired to embody any sort of creativity or create any kind of
beauty, but trust me--i am no Van Gogh. Alas, I have yet to
discover that I have any great artistic talents, so now I
vicariously seek to surround myself with the company of those
creatively talented and beautiful things!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a student. I work. Blah blah blah
I’m really good at
making pie
being generally unorganized
putting together a tent
sleeping in
breaking things
The first things people usually notice about me
Either than I'm a bit quiet but sweet tempered, or that I'm a total mess and completely scatterbrained. It's usually one of the two.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books- I love reading (especially childrens books!). A few of my favorite are The Elegance of a Hedgehog, The Little Prince (Dessine-moi un mouton!), The Giving Tree, Godric, and various types of coffee table books.

Movies- I could absolutely sit on my living room floor with a bag of gummy bears and watch movies from dusk till dawn. Some of my favorites include (but are not limited to)- The Graduate (of course), Leon the Professional, The Royal Tenenbaums, Edward Scissorhands, Reality Bites, Pride and Prejudice, The Harry Potter series(10 points for Gryffindor!!!), Big Fish, The Kings Speech, A Single Man, A Serious Man (and anything else buy the Coen Brothers), Stardust, Two for the Road.....this could go on for ages

TV- I loved the show "Pushing Dasies" until it was canceled... those bastards. I've seen every episode of Sex and the City about a thousand times... it's a girl thing- dont try to understand it, just accept it. I also like: Two and a Half Men (before Charlie was replaced by Aston), Man Woman Wild, True Blood, Game of Thrones, Man vs Food, and an assortment of home design shows.

Music- Unlike most of my generation, thanks to the birth of the ipod (thanks Steve Jobs, may your bloody brilliant soul rest in peace), I can't recall the artist and name of every song I hear. And I don't put a lot of effort into discovering cool bands nobody has every heard of. But I do love music, it makes me feel good. Music that I could never get tired of- Fleetwood Mac, Coldplay, The doors, Pearl Jam, The beatles, Tegan and Sara, Adele

Food- Yeah, it's a favorite pastime of mine. It's very rare that you would see me pass up trying something new, I mean if you stick a Balut (a boiled egg with a nearly developed baby duck inside) under my nose we might have some problems. I love the food truck scene. I love pho'. I love pastrami sammys. My two favorite foods are sushi and homemade (note: this part is very important) spaghetti, as long as they aren't on the same plate.
Six things I could never do without
Places to try to new or outrageously delicious food
Odd and curious things/people to wonder about
Art and creatively inclined people
Tea (preferably black with cream and sugar please)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm kind of obcessed with quotes. Some examples would be:

A man must be able to cut a knot, for everything cannot be untied. -Henri Fredric Amiel

What men want is not knowledge, but certainty. Bertrand Russell

"Let everything happen to you, Beauty and terror, Just keep going, No feeling is final" - Rainer Maria Rilke

The absence of flaw in beauty is itself a flaw. -Havelock Ellis

Sanity is very rare: every man almost, and every woman, has a dash of madness. -Ralph Waldo Emerson
On a typical Friday night I am
I am usually with my sister and/or with friends. Where? Who knows... but generally on the weekends we frequent art walks, lounges, flea markets, cafes, bars, and taco trucks.
You should message me if
If you have something more to say than "hey, you're cute". Compliments are sweet and always accepted, but a little mundane.
If you have never (admittedly) taken a "mirror pic"
Maybe if you have brown hair and a bit of scruff.
If you have atleast a few creative bones in your body.
If you open doors for ladies.
The two of us
