About Me

I've lived in Chicago for the past five years with my childhood best friend, who happens to share the same name as me (although with a slight spelling variation).

I like to sit in coffee shops and drink tea and write short stories inspired by the people sitting near me.

A few years ago, I started running to help with stress and anxiety and have grown to love it (on most days). I've recently started doing yoga which has been a fun but rocky road since I am in no way flexible.

Listening to podcasts, thrifting, playing board games, and cooking/baking rank pretty high up on the list of things I enjoy doing.

Favorite Music

Simon and Garfunkel, Lana Del Rey, alt-j, Coeur de Pirate, Sufjan Stevens, Modest Mouse, Taking Back Sunday, Fleetwood Mac, and Radical Face to name a few.

Favorite Books

White Oleander, Dept. of Speculation, Rules of Civility, What Alice Forgot, Fangirl, A Prayer for Owen Meanie, Daughter of Fortune, Practical Magic,Code Name Verity, and The Call

Podcasts

Invisibilia, My Favorite Murder, Lore, This American Life, With Special Guest Lauren Lapkus, Natch Beaut, This Feels Terrible, How Did This Get Made, Why Won't You Date Me, and Who Weekly

Comment: The PC you sent is so adorable & cute! I love it! We've met up again in a swap! And strangely, it didn't have the postmark stamp on it. I don't know how it made it through the postal service without being stamped. I'm impressed by your small handwriting.
