Birthday: june 28
Favorite color: how about the lack of? shades of greys and blacks? no? ok…then, periwinkle.
Lucky number: seven
Height: five-four and a half …that half is important to me.
Talents: i slay at karaoke-ing to will smith’s wild wild west. i’m not ambidextrous, but can give myself a salon-quality manicure on both hands. finding new music.
Last Dream you remember: i honestly cannot think of the last dream i had. so it was probably really good ;)
Can you juggle: not even close.
Do you like writing: i love writing. or rather, i love the idea of writing. academically…writing was always difficult for me. don’t get me wrong, i was damn good at it. but i was a perfectionist. once my sophomore year of college, my contemporary political thought professor accused me of plagiarizing a fifteen page paper on Rousseau’s Emile…claiming it was the best paper he’d ever read. i cried. a lot. he agreed to read it again, and ended up giving me an A-…i’m still bitter about that minus. personally…writing is an outlet for me. a way to quiet the never-ending swirl of thoughts in my head. although, lately those thoughts feel safer tucked away. even so…finding my voice is important to me. i seem to have lost it somewhere along the way.
Do you like dancing: i love dancing! it usually takes a few drinks until i’m willing to bust out some moves (they aren’t that good)…but that’s pretty much everyone, right?
Do you like singing: yes! fun fact. i recorded a few singles in high school. they are embarrassingly cheesy, but not completely awful. maybe one day i’ll track down those mp3 files and let you all have a good chuckle.
Fantasy Dream Vacation: my euro-trip!! i leave next friday…three nights in london, followed by four nights in paris. two in brussles. one in bruges. three in amsterdam. i’m going by myself…staying in hostels, traveling by train. and i could not be more excited for it!
Dream Guy: i mean…this guy is pretty good looking. but no, seriously. my dream guy is intelligent. well-versed in current events. has taken the time to form opinions about the state of the world. he’s funny. a great conversationalist. isn’t afraid to be silly with me. he’s passionate and compassionate. has big dreams and chases them. he’s my best friend. he loves me, and lets me love him. he’s out there…somewhere.
Dream wedding: honestly…there used to be a time when i thought about this. but the older i get, the more i realize none of it really matters. i don’t care where i get married, or what the color scheme is. i don’t care about the size of the guest list, or what’s on the menu. all that matters to me are the promises we will make to one another, and the close friends and family who will be there by our side to help us celebrate. oh, and good beer.
Dream pet: if they could find a way to make them stop shedding, i would love a bernese mountain dog!
Dream job: i wouldn’t mind making a career out of this whole blogging thing.
Favorite Song: john mayer…covered in rain. this has been my island song since 2001. it’s just perfect, you guys.
Hair color: no preference really, but nothing crazy
eye color: no preference
humorous/serious: definitely a sense of humor, with a touch of sarcasm
tall/short: tall, but not too tall.
Biggest turn off: selfishness. ignorance. bros. not having an opinion.
Biggest turn on: confidence. intelligence. witty conversation. knowing who you are and what you want. beards.
I will never compete for someone’s attention. You feel the need to talk to a plethora of people, be my guest. But do not be surprised if I fade to the back of the crowd and start a new path.
