Just going to throw this out there - parents love me. I'm a happy person who is determined to make the best out of any situation. I'm a girly girl who loves to sing trashy 80's music (out of tune) at karaoke nights. At the same time though, I love to spend a Sunday afternoon watching football. I'm into sports - Patriots (since before Tom Brady, thank you very much), Mets (even though they break my heart), and Islanders (I may be their only fan). I graduated from Northwestern, and I bleed purple for my Cardiac 'Cats Football. I love to cook, and it's even better that learning how to cook and bake is a part of my job description. I love traveling and exploring new cities. I'm not content until I've learned something new each day, and I never go a day without laughing. More often than not, I'm laughing at myself. Despite having been born and raised 20 miles north of NYC, I'm very midwestern in personality. Except for when I'm in midtown - I have no problem flinging slowly moving tourists out of my way.
