about me.

I'm a new-ish graduate who now finally has her English degree.
 A wannabe editor for a publishing company or magazine someday. 
Hot tea and mountains of pillows are my favorite.
I'm a Harry Potter lover. Draco and Snape are my favorites, hands down.
Supernatural is a close second though. Destiel shipper right here. 
I read a lot. I re-read a lot, too.
I like to live life through literary quotes and song lyrics.
Mean Girls plays on repeat when I'm trying to be productive.
I was an honors college kid. Which really just means that I'm intelligent enough to procrastinate and still get everything done well.
I sing. I dance pretty awfully, but I love it just the same.
I love clementine Izzes, vanilla coke, and Riesling White Zinfandel.
Jameson is my choice of poison.
I eat Waffle House more than is acceptable and hope that my body won't shut down.
I adore skinny jeans in bright colors. Crop tanks. Big, bright sunglasses.
I've worked multiple jobs at once so I can afford to live out my dreams.
Traveling is my passion and I've been to Edinburgh, London, and Dublin.
Edinburgh has my heart. 
Followed closely by music festivals.
Horror movies are my thing. Supernatural is my tv show obsession.
I'm not a fan of summer (it's so much worse when you live in the South).
I always have headphones in because it tends to make life better. Even on the bad days.

I'm an extremely optimistic person.
Carpe Diem is my life motto. To seize the day- every day.
I love beautiful things.
And I'm overly silly. Puns make me happy.
I love hard and I fall fast.
But at least it makes life interesting.
I'm intensely loyal to those I care for.
here's my 30 before 30.


  1. Your living my dream.
    I'm 90% positive I will study English in college too!
    I think we need to be best friends!

  2. thanks for the compliments! :) and to answer your question i got my gem of a shirt at forever 21 and i shoot with a Nikon D3000. i got it a few years ago though, so it's kind of an older model.

  3. I was torn between English, Design, and Education as a major in college. I chose education. But was thinking about taking my praxis' to be certified to teach English, this summer.

    Enjoy the rest of your college experience!! (:

  4. oh I LOVE Harry Potter too! I can't even remember how many times I read each book :)

  14. Allison, you're so cute!
    I'm also a quotes-loving, tea-drinking, big-sunnies-loving singer and Christian.
