My self-summary
I am a fan of warm days, college-ruled notebook paper, and grapefruit San Pellegrino. In middle school, I taught myself a small amount of HTML so that I could create and then abandon a Backstreet Boys webpage. I have mastered the three chords necessary to accompany myself on the ukulele as I cover top 40 hits.

I have a crippling addiction to lip balm.

I prefer biscuits to English muffins. I love the smell of citrus fruits. I don’t think there’s such a thing as “too many” pairs of socks. I struggle daily to remember to water my plants, but have no problem remembering birthdays (including family members’ dogs’ birthdays). I am a huge fan of the Oxford comma.

I am terrible at watercolor painting. I have pretty decent handwriting unless I’m in a hurry. I love grocery shopping and don’t mind waiting in a long line to check out.

I talk to strangers in hallways, bathrooms, elevators, and in line at the post office.

I have resisted learning how to play chess because I’m afraid I will be so terrible at it that my self esteem will be forever crushed. I am very good at Pictionary, both as a guesser and as a draw-er. I was happy when Arthur Chu finally lost on Jeopardy.

Unless there is something really exciting happening, I have a hard time staying up past 10:30. I love road trips and audio books. I mix limeade with my beer. If I start to read a book I have to finish it, even if it is terrible.
What I’m doing with my life
I have an incredibly boring job - but not to worry! It allows me to work from home and listen to a criminal amount of podcasts and audiobooks. I've moved to MI from the south to finish my undergraduate degree and save for grad school, so my days are pretty full with work and school, but I'm always willing to make time for an adventure.

Future Me has an awesome life. She works in the sciences, probably keeps bees (and maybe goats), and gets her passport stamped at least once a year. Word on the street is she's run a marathon or two.
I’m really good at
...packing a lunch.

Seriously. You'll want to invite me to your next picnic.
The first things people usually notice about me
My humor. I'm most comfortable when people around me are happy and laughing, so I'm quick to diffuse a tense situation with an (often inappropriate) joke or story.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books: My favorite authors (the short list): Ernest Hemingway, John Irving, Margaret Atwood, Alice Monroe

Favorite Movie: I'll admit it - Lord of the Rings.

Shows: Outside of documentaries (I'm a sucker for anything from the history of cement to nature docs narrated by Attenborough), I love catching up on shows on Netflix and I'm guilty of loving cable shows Game of Thrones, The Knick, Eastbound and Down, and The Leftovers.

Food: I have a sweet tooth - I love ice cream!
Six things I could never do without
My dog (Ernest "Ernie" Hemingway, the best pit bull a girl could ask for)
Something to read
Sparkling water
Lip balm
My camera
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What if the color green as I perceive it is really everyone elses' blue?
On a typical Friday night I am
At home, grilling out and enjoying a delicious beer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I don't hide them, my dog will eat the crotch out of my underwear (but not while I'm wearing them).

When I tried to outwit him and stop wearing underwear, he started eating the crotches of my pants.
You should message me if
You like cashews. They are my least favorite nut and I'm looking for someone to help me finish this fancy nut mix.

Or if you can help me practice my French.
The two of us
