I have a passion for words, mental health, and travel size beauty products.  When I grow up I’m going to be an author and psychotherapist with a really sick medicine cabinet.  I’ve written two books, published zero.  I’ll also have a master’s degree soon, so I think I’m hot shit.  Sallie Mae disagrees.

What I Do, Job-wise: Grad school stuff.  I also write, though people don’t usually pay me to, but I think that should still count.

What I Do, Fun-wise: I laugh at things that are really inappropriate, drink frozen raspberry margaritas, and make irresponsible financial decisions so that I can see the world.  My passport is very appreciative.         

My Motto: “Nothing beats a failure but a try.” – Mom

My Anti-Motto: “Live every day like it’s your last.”  And spend every day gorging on Popeye’s fried chicken? Not a good idea.

The First Movie Star I Ever Had A Crush On: Ariel from The Little Mermaid.  For serious.

My “celebs to make out with” list: Uncle Jesse, Blackie Parrish, and John Stamos in that order.

My Most Worn Item of Clothing: Panties

Beauty Products That I Hoard:  Travel sized anything (See bio) and nail polish in bright summer colors

I Have Faked An Orgasm (Yes/No): Yes. Including a few of the ones I’ve given myself.  I’m insecure like that.
