Chicago girl, living in Atlanta.
Hoping to meet some legit people, friends or otherwise. I'm career driven and professional but totally goofy and lighthearted. I love my job and work my butt off. I travel for work, so people with some sense of loyalty is always a plus. :) I am looking to widen my circle of friends and who knows, make have something successful off of OKC. I'm not closed off to the idea, but I am certainly not holding my breath.
You might see me outside of ATL as I travel the southeast. ATL>DC>MD>VA>TN>AL>NC>FL>PR
I love laughing in general- whether it be at myself; while others laugh at me, or just the simple formula of making others laugh. I used to do improv comedy in Chicago, and would love to do it in ATL, it's just really hard to find the time. I can be very outgoing, although at first meeting I might be uber nerdy, shy and/or giggly (refer to the most private thing I am willing to admit section)... but I warm up quickly! I get along with pretty much everyone and I enjoy a good time, no matter what it is: a museum, a movie or a concert or hitting up a local watering hole. So hit me up if you want to show me around or join me in taking on new ATL adventures.
I'm a short, curvy, eclectic, vivacious woman and I make no apologies for it. If that's not your thing, no big deal. But I love who I am inside and out. ;) you gotta rock what you got. As RuPaul says, "if you can't love yourself, then how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else?"
Anyways, I will be playing that by ear. I like surrounding myself with quality people. And enjoy a night in just as much as a night out. I am excited for The Walking Dead to start, and can be found hanging with the buds watching it at the Local on Sunday nights.
I love movies, all sorts, comedy, horror, kids, you name it. Doesn't take much to convince me to go. Lol
The black ladies of Atlanta love my hair. Hahaha
I mean I didn't get this curvaceous shape eating celery sticks hahaha!
Food: I try and eat healthily, especially cuz I am on the road so much. But talking about salads isn't as much fun. So given the choice I lurv:
Pizza (typically NY style is a favorite)
Shrimp Pad Thai
Portillos (chicago hot dogs!)
Bread and Butter...sometimes simple can be sooo damn good
I don't read as much as I would like to, however, I just bought a book of Edgar Allan Poe's best stories, I am hoping to motivate myself with that. I have always loved Rohl Dahl and his children's novels. I always loved the whimsy. I love the feel and smell of new books. I love Catcher in the Rye, The Little Prince, The Perks of Being a Wallflower and I like girly novels, whatever, I am a girl. I'm allowed. so lay off... :) I like being cultured, but I reserve the right to a mindless read every now and then.
Dexter, The Walking Dead, American Horror Story, Parks and Rec, Bob's Burgers, Game of Thrones, New Girl, Fringe, Face Off, Kitchen Nightmares, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Office (UK and American), Little Britain, Arrested Development, No Reservations, Robot Chicken, and the list goes on and on.
Too Long to get into...
But basically it varies between two moods (as sighted below)
An upbeat mix of Haim, Kid Sister, Passion Pit, Little Boots, Datarock, Cut Copy, Men and Women, Professor Murder, Goldfrapp, The Black Ghosts, Black Kids, Brazilian Girls, Chromeo, American Teen, Fiest, LCD Soundsystem, MGMT, Phoenix, Walter Meego, Florence + the Machine, The XX, Sia, The Detroit Cobras, Miike Snow, Calvin Harris, Miami Horror, Foster the People, Kimbra, Deee-Lite (oh hells yea), La Roux, Pharrell, NFG, Reggie and the Full Effect, Ellie Goulding, Operator Please, Two Door Cinema Club, Walk the Moon, MSTRKRFT and Santo Gold
And a chill mix- now that its fall I'm really starting to get back into what I like to call "makeout music" hahaha. I don't have to be making out with someone when I listen to it- but that's what this sort of music makes me think of:
Milo Greene, The Head and the Heart, American Analog Set, Band of Horses, Death cab, As Tall As Lions, Phoenix, Coldplay (their earlier stuff), Grizzly Bear, Mayer Hawthorne, Temper Trap, Walk the Moon, Leagues, Kings of Convenience, Daugher, Damien Rice, Badly Drawn Boy, Jose Gonzalez, Sia...and so on and so forth.
Which one of my 28 cats will eat my face...which neighbor will find my body. Jk no cats or plans for dying anytime soon.
