About Me

Hello! My name is Lauren. I'm 30 years old. I currently work at a library, and I love it. Being in a building full of books is my dream come true. When I'm not getting distracted and adding way too many books to my to-read list, I'm tutoring kids and going out to a local school to read. It is exciting to share my love of written language and to see kids get excited about it, too.

Other than reading, some of my hobbies include hiking, cooking, and finding new places to explore.

Favorite Music

Empire of the Sun, The Shins, Imogen Heap, Pete Yorn, The Killers

I also like to listen to different things depending on my mood. This includes k-pop, ocean or whale sounds, native american music, and rain sounds

When it is actually raining (or gloomy) it is what I call a "Coldplay day" and I'll listen to Coldplay all day.

Favorite Crafts

I enjoy all types of crafts. Mostly I've done various cross-stitch projects. I was a big coloring book fan way before it was trendy and zen to be a coloring book fan. I've dabbled with polymer clay, felt dolls, crochet, calligraphy and sewing. For a time I was overly obsessed with making origami stars. Most recently I've been trying my hand at painting and watercolors.

Favorite Television

Gilmore Girls (has to be my favorite show of all time), Parenthood, Boy Meets World, New Girl, Pretty Little Liars, Man VS. Food

Currently watching; Thirteen Reasons Why

I also recently started watching K Dramas. If anyone has any recommendations, let me know! I'd love delve deeper into this newest interest of mine.

Favorite Books

Anything Edgar Allan Poe, The History of Love- Nicole Krauss, The Mummy- Anne Rice, anything Jane Austen, Rebecca- Daphne Du Maurier, Brave New World- Aldous Huxley, White Noise- Don Delillo, The Time Traveler's Wife- Audrey Niffenegger, Into the Wild- Jon Krakauer

I'm also on a Young Adult kick.

Obsessions

Pineapples, anything literary or bookish, Kawaii, Gudetama!!!, Disney Tsum Tsum, Penny's Fill-In Puzzles, emojis (especially the poopmoji), donuts

Scents

I am a compulsive sniffer of colognes and perfumes, body sprays, men's deodorants (think AXE and Old Spice), etc. I love good smelling things. If you have a scent you want to share, I'd be happy to hear what your favorites are. Be sure to jot it down on your swaps! I'm also all for you spritzing it on your correspondence, should you so choose. If you want to send samples, I'm all for that, too.

I once smelled something so amazing that it is still driving me crazy to figure out what the scent was. If you help me find it, I will love you for life! So don't forget to include what the scent is called. hehe ;)

Oh! and it doesn't have to necessarily be perfume/cologne scents. One of my favorite scents is the smell of fresh cilantro!

Spanish

Beginning June 2017 I decided to revisit my goal of speaking/reading/writing Spanish fluently. I took 5 years in school, but do not feel confident in my ability. If anyone speaks/writes Spanish, I'd love to have perhaps a few lines written and translated in your letter or message to me, or even a list of a few of your favorite words (and translated). I need all the practice I can get!

I'm also open and searching for someone who is willing to be my Spanish Pen Pal. If you're interested don't hesitate to direct message me. I'd love to have a pen pal from someone in a Spanish speaking country (Mexico, Spain, etc.), but anywhere will do!
