I'm a Johnnie, a musician, an optimist, a reader, a storyteller, a lover, and not infrequently a troublemaker.
Here are some things that I like. Maybe you'll like them too!

earl grey, irish breakfast, sugar, green tea

earl grey: how do you take your tea?
Earl Grey: it depends on the tea. Black teas I generally want at least a little sweetened, and sometimes with milk, depending on the tea. Green tea I only sweeten if I need the honey for my throat (or if I fucked up brewing it). For herbal teas, I sweeten based on my mood.

Irish Breakfast: I don’t know that there’s one country I have a burning desire to visit. I’ve heard amazing things about Canada’s national parks, though. So, Canada and/or anywhere that I could see Northern Lights. I want to see those in person someday.

sugar: tell me about your first crush
Sugar: First crush. Guh, it’s so hard to figure out which one was first. Probably my first seven chronological crushes could be fairly called my first crush in some respect. I had at least two crushes, one on a girl and one on a boy, before I had a name for what I was feeling. But the first person I knew I was attracted to was a tall, blond, (gay) bassist in my orchestra class. He was charismatic and had nice shoulders and I had no idea what to do about all of the hormones I was experiencing. As it turns out, the thing to do was to cry and angst for a while and then get over him.

Green Tea: there’s a little sidetrail off the c&o to a little tiny, muddy cove that somebody uses as a fishing spot. The view is incredibly lovely. I go there when I need to feel alone, in that way the woods can do for you. It’s not as completely isolated a hiding/ meditation spot as one could want, being on such a populated section of the river, but it is lovely nonetheless.

chai, herbal, coffee

Chai- probably on average I order chai lattes the most, but in the winter when they break out salted caramel this and salted caramel that, my true allegiances are revealed.

Coffee- honestly the only coffee I’ve ever tried that I wanted to keep drinking was Thymey’s good Turkish coffee. It’s a good thing I don’t like coffee overly much because I’d be spoiled for life.

Herbal- selfie forthcoming. I’ll probably pick out a couple pictures from camp this summer and post them.

You know what I want the next Disney Princess to be?

An Alto.

*soprano cackling in the distance*


Not my fault! I would happily give the spotlight to an alto.
…but I admit I enjoy having a wide selection of music to choose from. I am complicit with the system.
