About Me

CURRENT MISSION
To not lose my sense of wonder

ABOUT ME
Im quirky. I love laughing until my cheeks are sore and my stomach hurts. I have a thing for sweatshirts, sandals, and sunglasses (and apparently the letter "s"). I love Roxette. I have an unquenchable thirst for seeing the world and doing my part. I'm passionate about environmental issues, but I promise not to shove my tree-hugging philosophy down anyone's throat...unless of course you want me to. Im also notorious for solo dance parties...Im pretty freaking good.

PHILOSOPHY
"The only mistake we make in our lives is to lose our sense of wonder"
