Aaah, yes: the terribly awkward “About Me” page. Back in my single days, I once tried online dating and sat, totally stumped, for hours while trying to figure out what to say in the “About Me” section.
As it turns out, writer’s block helps ensure that online dating won’t exactly be a wildly successful endeavor. Who knew?
Soooo, anyways…about me: I’m perpetually hungry. I love both healthy cooking and fitness, but I have a shameless love of brain candy in the form of rom-coms and celeb gossip. I read voraciously. I’m a displaced Colorado gal living in DC, and sometimes my nostalgia for the mountains and good green chili starts to drive me slowly insane. I have an endless love of green smoothies, music that runs the gamut from teen pop to jazz to gangsta rap, and irreverent comedies. I have a secret dream that someday I’ll be on vacation in London, run into John Cleese (of Monty Python fame) and that we’ll be able to have gluten-free crumpets and tea while being sarcastic together. I love both shoes and football, and I once simultaneously owned both a pink iPod mini and a subscription to Sports Illustrated.
Aside from my family, friends, and the husband who I didn’t meet online — which is a good thing because he probably would’ve been creeped out by my “About Me” section — one of my greatest joys is writing. I’ve moved what was originally meant to be a healthy living blog to this shiny new website (jazz hands!) so I can write about the approximately 8 bajillion topics that occupy my brain on a daily basis, including international intrigue, women’s issues, healthy cookin’, inspiration, fitness, and life as a thirty-something woman who’s trying to figure out what she wants to be when she grows up.
