Here are some things about me: I'm a 20-year-old 2nd-year student at Grinnell College in Iowa, though I'm from Tulsa, Oklahoma. My time is precious, and I prefer to spend it reading, writing, and noticing the world around me. I'm sometimes shy, but I never mean to be stand-offish. Then again, sometimes I'm an elitist and sometimes when you think I'm mocking you, I really am. I am passionate about words and creating perfect moments, and I put far too much effort into perfecting the world around me, my space, my schedule, and the clothes I wear. I'm pretty much a perfectionist in general. When you catch me in the right mood I'm quite witty. If I could live in an alternate reality, I would be a sassy girl reporter in a 1940s comedy with plenty of fast-paced banter. I hardly ever get enough sleep, I'm a vegetarian, I drink massive quantities of tea, and I buy way too much high-priced yarn off the internet. If I were left to my own devices and given an unlimited budget, I would force all of my friends to live with me in an artists' colony/sheep farm in the Colorado Rockies, where our days would be spet basking on sun-drenched rocks, and our nights would be spent stargazing. I like the world, and I like the creations of people in it, but I am fundamentally opposed to math (that doesn't mean I'm not good at it). Also, I'm kind of an exhibitionist.
