Hi friends! I have noticed a few new faces around here and I thought I'd take a moment to reintroduce myself to those of you who don't know much about me aside from my affinity for photographing myself and my huge lady crush on Shakira.
I'm a Florida native (and Gator fan!) who upped and moved to the West coast almost three months ago looking for adventures and that's exactly what I've found here in the Bay Area. I've seen more naked people, creativity, freedom of expression, kindness and craziness in the past few months than I had after years of living in the 352.
I studied journalism in college, and despite the naysayers (myself being the main one, of course) I'm finally putting my degree to use. I have the best family ever (the kind that gets excited and passes the phone around when I call) and I miss them like crazy.
I run a lot, but not necessarily well. I've been jogging (with a soft "j") since my high school cross country days and I'm currently training for my first full marathon. So if you follow me on InstaGram, you're sure to see lots of sweaty selfies and #healthrelatedhashtags.
I take my pudgy sausage of a beagle mutt, Ziggy Stardust, running with me a lot. She's pretty much the coolest dog around, even when she eats my hair and I then have to pull it out of her butt for her (TMI?). She paws my head until I let her crawl under the covers and yea, we spoon. Whatever.
Needless to say I'm single.
Sometimes I drink too much and my split personality disorder starts to kick in. That hot mess is called Rose, but you can read about her here. I also get epic hangovers, so I tried to contain her. I'm obsessed with music. Mix CDs are, in my opinion, the ultimate gift, right after concert tickets.
I'm lactose intolerant and pretty bitter about it, so I spend a lot of time hunting down vegan pizzas and trying disgusting cheeses made of vegetables.
Lastly, I'm super friendly and I want to know more about you, so please introduce yourself so we can be friends!
