I’m excited about life at all times because plainly it’s more fun than not! I used to wish people would communicate via Broadway show tunes, then Glee came out, and I wished it even more. I was once crowned Miss Congeniality and when I laugh, which is often, I scrunch my nose and smile too big for my own good.
I develop word crushes resulting in many a dog-eared page and believe that using delicious as an adjective is infinitely better when not applied to food- i.e. a delicious spring breeze. My case of wanderlust is insatiable, and if I could, I would make like George Eliot seeking successive Autumns around the world! I’ve dived to the depths of the Pacific (I thought my Urban Decay eyeliner might stay, it did not), zip-lined through Costa Rica, participated at a nude beach on the Côte d'Azur, and once wrapped a python around my neck on a safari in Singapore.
After undergrad, I asked the eternal 20-something question (what the hell should I do with the rest of my life?!?!) then attended a school where we were told to “make it work,” which I did at the tents of Bryant Park, during fashion week. Yes, it was ba-nanas. I fiercely subscribe to the notion that the time is always now and when I’ve decided to jump, neither angels nor principalities can convince me otherwise. I attribute my rose-tinted ideals and impossible standards to my parents who are living proof of the American dream.
One day I will zip around THE big city on my Hermes orange vintage bicycle, have a dog named George, live on a tree-lined slash cobble stone street, renovate my pre-war brownstone, and know that I made my mark!
