i am a student of human nature with degrees in math, English, and education. a fan of footless tights and addicted to refined carbs, i am sometimes too ambitious for my own good. i’ve moved across the country twice in the past 2.5 years, zig-zagging from new york to arizona to maryland. i use all lowercase because I’m creative. or lazy. or both. i've been married to the same man for almost 5 years. we still like each other a lot. i write on my blog about the things that happen in my life. or that I think are interesting. or that i think people will want to know about. i’m usually the shortest person in the room. i’ve been dumpster diving before. i like microsoft excel more than the average person. i over-think almost everything and get offended when people tell me i’m over-thinking something. i like to think that i work out, but the last time i checked, doing 20 minutes of yoga three times a year doesn’t qualify. i am fiercely loyal to those i love. i have never owned a home. i think airplane bathrooms signage is hilarious. i love pinot noir and my favorite thing to do is to laugh heartily with good friends.
