I’m a 29 year old fake red head who finally figured out in my first two years of grad school that happiness is a journey (not a destination). I am slowly but surely working towards a PhD in
at Old Dominion University. I also work for the Navy and am a college instructor.
I practice hot yoga and I work with a personal trainer. I prefer my books to be first editions that smell a little musty. I spend a lot of time at the local indie theater and the museum in my neighborhood. My favorite place in the Universe is enjoying live music with good friends. If you love The Wire, we will probably be friends forever.
I’m a little obsessed with coffee, Bourbon barrel stouts, Pinot Noir, and Manchego. I love to cook, but more importantly, I love to eat. I'm what some people might call a locavore.
Other fun facts: I have a blog
, I love playing with purple eye shadow, and I'm a cat mom.
“Be careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream.” ~ Lao Tzu
