Biography

I'm a 24-year-old PR/marketing guru originally from a small town in CT.

I'm someone who is blessed to have many wonderful and amazing friends who are always up for a good time, a long talk and are the first ones there when times are tough.

I like to laugh and smile a lot. I can be funny at times and definitely a smart ass at others. I'm the first one to make fun of myself and the crazy situations I often find myself in.

I live my life with the belief that things work out as they should, even if you don't particularly care for the end result. Chalk it up to character-building. With that, the powers that be seem to have one hell of a sense of humor.

I'm passionate, thoughtful and messy. Books and expensive purses are my downfall, as are bargain shoes. I have big dreams and even bigger hopes for my future. I believe that success is a direct result of the effort you put in and that we each have the ability to change our paths if we work hard enough.

I've been known to sleepwalk, drink a two liter of diet coke at a sitting and watch eight hours straight of bad reality tv. I've put 20,000 miles on my car since I bought it at the beginning of August.

I recently found my first gray hair. I am choosing to believe it's from having too much stress in my life and not because I'm getting old.

I've been known to listen to the same three songs for an entire 6 hour drive. I truly believe that I was born to play drinking games. I laugh when I get nervous. I like to think the best of people and may sometimes give them too much credit.

I have a loving mother, a brother I am proud of and a father who often breaks my heart.

My ex-boyfriend is gay and is one of my best friends. I was once told I had a brain tumor. I worry. A lot. About most things and anyone I care about. I believe that you've got to take risks. And do things that make you feel uncomfortable.

And to add onto the above, here are 100 other things about me:
