I spent several years in college working retail and if you had told me then that I would purposefully greet anyone with the word y'all, I simply would not have believed you. But here we are. I have grown to love y'all as a symbol of where I'm from, and also a really easy way to address a lot of people. It's a great word.
I grew up in Texas. I like it there a lot, but I live in Brooklyn now.
New York is made of magic. Occasionally the kind that makes life difficult, but magic nonetheless.
I spend a lot of time listening to, talking about, and seeing music. It's always been that way.
I spent half a month's rent seeing Springsteen on Broadway and I cried for two hours.
I really like when I can be a big nerd about things I love.
That's often language, both the one I speak, ones I wish I spoke, and the forgotten ones.
I will show you multiple pictures of my dog, named after Dolly Parton.
I enjoy talking about her and her namesake at length.
My favorite class I took in college was on the history of country music.
My second favorite class I took in college was on diagramming sentences.
I bake with most of my free time, and do yoga to make my brain feel balanced.
I really love telling a great story.
