I'm happiest when I'm creating things: writing, drawing, baking. I'm also a fan of nature in gentle doses: long walks, biking on Rails to Trails, trying to learn the constellations. I'm a girl who loves debating and discussing everything from the latest story on NPR to the latest plot twist on Dexter or Game of Thrones. I'm a good listener and the kind of friend who holds on to friendships and makes them work despite the changes the years bring. My religion is very important to me -- in my family, Judaism was how we expressed love, and I'd want to share that with the person I'm in a relationship with.
