My self-summary

I have a cat. Her name is Prudence.

I believe Butter Pecan ice cream really tastes like maple syrup.


My first name is Karlie.
I’m really good at
Writing on a deadline
Speaking Swahili
Attempting to be creative
Being terrifyingly honest

The six things I could never do without
1. Communication
If you can't communicate with me about things, there is no way a relationship would ever work between us. Friendship begins with communication. At least tell me your name. This username bullshit really bugs me.

2. Hugs (Physical contact in general)

3. Christmas
The time of year that people change. I love giving gifts and seeing the look on someone's face when they see an act of kindness right around the holidays. Whether it be Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa... regardless. The holidays change people, and it's a beautiful thing. (And no, I don't just put this up for Christmas time. This is up year 'round.)

4. Scented lotion
Makes me smell good and moisturizes my skin. Win win situation for everyone.

5. Friends/Family
"Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies." Aristotle
My family and I are quite close.

6. Chapstick
My mom put me on Accutane in High School. Now I have a complex about chapstick. I will always have some sort of lip moisturizer around me. (My favorite is the Softlips Vanilla kind.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-What my cat is thinking about
-Attempting to play various instruments. (Ukulele, mbira)
-My family
-How I can make things better for other people.
-Zanzibar, Tanzania
-The differences between "east" and "west"
-Trying to think of a way to make treadmills and stationary bikes the new way to make green energy. I swear, I really believe that there's promise in these everyday work out aids.
-Milk replacements
-Attempting to bake gluten free cake. A couple of my good friends have celiac.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working or at home, shining a laser around my living room with my cat. I might go out every once in a while.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm one of those people that pretends I'm in a music video. I also give concerts. My mirror has been my most faithful audience.
You should message me if
You enjoy good music, peach rings and you think that not all silence is awkward.

If you don't mind that sometimes I forget English words.
