Age: 25 (Almost.)
What I Do, Job-wise: Attempt to establish legitimacy for myself as “a writer.”
What I Do, Fun-wise: I help edit an anonymous humor blog, read and write about sex, occasionally spin poi, take comedy classes, hone handstands, and make some really delicious breakfasts. Big fan of travelling. Karaoke is also a favorite. As is red wine. Oh, and yelling out Jeopardy! answers on my boyfriend’s couch.
My Motto: How you do anything is how you do everything. And vice versa.
My Anti-Motto: Trust me.
The First Movie Star I Ever Had A Crush On: Jonathan Taylor Thomas.
My “celebs to make out with” list: Angelina Jolie (of course) and Mila Kunis. It’s short. I’m trying to be realistic.
The Most Played Song On My iTunes: “Natural White Noise for Babies.” I’m so embarrassed about this. Runner up: “Kiara” by Bonobo.
Last Book I Read Without Skimming Any Parts: Prozac Nation by Elizabeth Wurtzel (Only took me ten years to get to.)
My Most Worn Item of Clothing: The thong that lost its elasticity long, long ago.
Beauty Products That I Hoard: My mom’s cover-up. She still thinks she accidentally threw it out. Sorry, mom.
I smell like: Probably my boyfriend. Or Aveeno.
I Have Faked An Orgasm (Yes/No): Absolutely! I was runner up in a Rocky Horror Picture Show first timer’s fake orgasm contest. Still not sure if the fact that I didn’t win says something good or bad about my sex life. In any case, I resolved to be perfectly honest about all things pleasurable about four years ago. So far, so good.
