Practically perfect in every way.
Introduction
My eighth grade language arts teacher gave me this EE Cummings quote in a frame on my last day of class, and it inspires me today as much as it did when I had braces, glasses, a bad haircut, and bony limbs: "To be nobody but yourself in a world that does its best, day and night, to make you everybody else is to fight the hardest battle any human being can fight and never stop fighting."
 
I read, write, listen to so-bad-its-good music (like Taylor Swift and Ke$ha), and do Bikram Yoga like its going out of style but revile at the thought of cardio exercise. I consider Oprah one of my personal heros, get personally offended when people insult Beyonce or McDonald's, own a power sander, power drill, and always have paint thinner on hand. I am not a morning person, or a night person. I love to make new friends and really want a puppy but am waiting until I am responsible enough to keep a plant alive in my home for longer than three weeks.
Bragging rights
I reserve all of my narcissism for my still-evolving style blog.
