My self-summary
To Do List:

Filmmaking! That's my passion.
So naturally, I'm a corporate lawyer. For now.
To the guys cradling small furry animals in their OkC profile pictures: I see what you did there. Well played, sir.
Played volleyball in college and overseas, until my shoulder decided it was done. So it goes.
I need structure, but dread routine. It kills the soul.
My spirit animal is Maya Rudolph.
I used to throw impromptu solo dance parties whenever I became too boring or serious. Then I aged out of such shenaniganry. Bringing it back.
Born and raised in Orange County, CA.
Studied abroad at Oxford. One word: Hogwarts.

I will live in London at some point before I die. Oslo would be nice too.
SkyMall is underrated.
I have a hate-hate relationship with the word "should"...

...and those little leaflets that fall out of magazines when you pick them up to browse at the store.
"Oops" is better than "what if."

1) Wearing an ill-fitting suit.

I’m really good at
1) karaoke.
2) photo-bombing.

The six things I could never do without
1) my fam
2) something to look forward to
3) a day completely to myself
4) a creative outlet
5) yoga pants
6) the ability to laugh at myself
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- Story nuggets. There are so many stories out there waiting to be told.

- My original Gameboy, and why/how/when it went missing. 97% sure it involved my mother and Goodwill.

- A bluegrass-hip-hop compilation.

- The next step.
On a typical Friday night I am
not tottering in heels outside da clurb*.

*Note: Not to be confused with dance parties. Those are awesome. Especially impromptu ones.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
- "Mars Attacks" gave me nightmares as a child, and unsettles me to this day.

- Once upon a time, in the Land Before Facebook, pictures were taken. Pictures with horizontal peace signs, pouty lips,
and heads tilted jauntily to the side. Any and all evidence of said pictures has since been destroyed.

... I could say they were taken ironically, but that would be a lie.
I would say "don't judge," but I fully expect judgment here.

- I'd be sorted into Slytherin.
You should message me if
1) You are one of "the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, who never yawn or say a commonplace thing but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles." (EDIT: apparently this quote has been usurped by the biddies. Don't care, keeping it.)

2) One of your photos is a shirtless selfie taken in front of a mirror.

3) You're a fan - or at least a disciple - of the Comfortable Silence.

4) You don't own anything that cleverly misappropriates Britain's WWII mantra.

5) Social media slightly overwhelms you too.

6) #3 under "What I'm Doing With My Life" made you hate me a little bit.
