I’m officially in my 30′s, I recently relocated to Austin from Chicago, I have my MBA and a couple of Bachelor’s Degrees, I’m a Marketing Coordinator (when I’m employed) which means I’m great at organizing but terrible at delegating, I think the internet is the best thing since sliced bread, I’m pondering becoming a PhD in something, I’ve been known to hold a grudge, I shop too much, I don’t see my friends enough, I read trashy novels, I’m addicted to celebrity gossip, I live for vacations, I’m a know-it-all, I’m mad at Starbucks for making Carmel Apple Cider all year round when I thought it was a special winter-time treat, I’m usually in bed by ten, I hate cleaning the bathroom, I have a wiener dog named Oliver, I’m a stickler for proper grammar but use it incorrectly all the time, my favorite color is green, I love froyo, new underwear, and room service, I wear Uggs year-round, I have a weakness for sequin, and I can really cut a rug…

This is my app, so you can follow the madness...
