-Originally from New Jersey, and I lived in New York and Michigan before moving to Charlotte.
-I'm a Plaza Midwood girl, so you'll often find me at the local neighborhood haunts.
-Love live music, especially shows at the Fillmore.
-Drink a lot of coffee. Followed by more coffee.
-Believe that the best conversations are had late at night/very early in the morning, preferably over stiff drinks.
-Speak my mind. I don't sugar-coat much. Straight shooter.
-Stay fit and am partial to taking long runs outside, especially if it's raining a little bit.
-Miss the snow. I never thought I'd say that, but absence makes the heart grow fonder and all that.
-More "type A" than "laid-back."
-I care about what's going on in the world and I make an effort to learn about it.
Books: far too many to name. Anything historical fiction (especially if they're set during WWII); sci-fi/fantasy is cool, so is suspense, and I'm on a funny-lady memoir kick right now. Currently (or recently, depending on when you see this) reading "City on Fire;" I have mixed feelings so far.
TV: is it streaming and can I watch the whole series in a long weekend? Some faves include Sherlock, Orphan Black, Breaking Bad, Parks and Rec, Archer, Broad City, BoJack Horseman, or whatever is up next on my Netflix queue.
Music: St. Vincent, Lord Huron, MS MR, Florence + The Machine, First Aid Kit, LCD Soundsystem, Ben Howard, Avett Brothers, Faded Paper Figures, Robyn, Laura Marling, Cat Power, Bon Iver, Jose Gonzalez...your basic indie/folk stuff.
Food: anything. Seriously. Anything. Except meat. So, maybe not anything.
And new running routes.
