a twenty-something chickadee obsessed with caffeine and puppies and all things pink. trying to succeed without seriously compromising the value system instilled in me by my oh-so-amazing parents. prone to bouts of melodrama and melancholy and flighty-ness. sees the value in retail therapy, girlie brunch and excessive pampering. prefers to go to sleep early and insists on large sunglasses when in public. [they make it so much easier to people watch.] enjoys making to-do-lists and obsessive use of planners. the proud owner of an estranged turtle [darwin] and a puggle puppy [maximus]. enjoys sushi and mcdonald's equally. will not eat a steak unless it's rare. consumes an unhealthy amount of caffeine, though has managed to seriously reduce nicotine consumption.
