{ Helena in some bullet points? }

I like to think of myself as a person who can't be easily categorized or classified by simple things such as words, and I'm sure that if I tried to write this in narrative form, you'd be reading for hours...so I'm going to give you a nifty set of bullet points covering some random facts and hope that you come out of this experience knowing a little bit more about me than I could explain in my bio. Have fun!

• I was born and raised in the beautifully sunshiny city of Dallas, Texas. People who know me are well aware of the abundance of Texas pride that I exude on a daily basis (I have a four foot by six foot Texas flag hanging on my wall and a topographical Texas map hanging on the door to my room GAH I LOVE THAT PLACE) and are not afraid to tease me incessantly about it.

• The color orange looks TERRIBLE on me. This is sad, because I think it's one of the happiest colors that exist in this world and I wish very much that I were able to buy a pair of bright orange rain boots. Maybe in another life.

• If I could eat 24/7, I probably would. Do you need a favor? Offer me tiramisu, and I'll probably oblige. Ooh, or roasted Brussels sprouts. Or Szechwan Green Beans from the Mandarin. Om nom nom.

• My iTunes library occupies most of my hard drive. This can sometimes be a problem, but I think that I can deal with a slow-running laptop as long as Gillian Welch, Mahler, Bill Evans, and the Modern Lovers are always a click away.

Currently, I am full of apple cider, stir fry, and anxious anticipation for the year that lies ahead of me. I'll be sharing the best of what I discover in this here blog. Happy reading!

(feel free to stalk me on Facebook; I love new friends and good conversation!)

Szechwan Green Beans are the best thing at Mandarin. Without a doubt. OH and the tea. Mmmm.
