About Me


My Pinterest * * * Goodreads Account

Hello, I am Amanda!

My husband and I are both grad students who love coffee and board games! Our favorite date is sharing a latte and playing Dominion at a local coffee shop. I am extroverted and love serving others in fun ways. Over the few past years I've been learning about and growing in satisfaction and grace. I am a Christian and love talking about faith with others and learning about different views, beliefs, and cultures. I have been blessed to travel to several countries in my 24 years of life, my favorites being Japan and Germany!

I love simple and thoughtful things. ♥️ Looking forward to swapping with you!

I found the cute profile images on pinterest, they are not mine!

I would love to hear what you are currently reading and any suggestions! My goodreads account is linked at the top of my profile. ♥️

For television I love The Office (I am one of those crazy Office fans who can't go a whole conversation without making a quote or five. Kelly is my favorite character!), Parks and Rec, Community, Gilmore Girls.

Concerning music, I like folk, classic rock, electronic, rap, and indie. I am pretty open to anything minus country. I enjoy listening to: Jon Foreman, Josh Garrels, Jack Johnson, Florence + The Machine, Twenty One Pilots, David Bowie, Mumford and Sons, Foster The People, Cage The Elephant, Passion Pit, The Killers, The Lumineers, Imagine Dragons, Coldplay, Of Monsters and Men, FUN, Lights, Owl City, Bastille, The Postal Service.

I'm doing a profile bling swap about butterflies and thought I'd send some your way too! :)

I’m actually TERRIBLE at adding and rating my Goodreads. I usually use as a tool to see what others are reading but occasionally will update mine if I remember. Oy.

splendorpursuit on Jan 28, 2019:

Oh no! The link doesn’t work. The field to input your links are super specific if you want to try again. EVERYBODY goes through this when they first start here so no worries, I did too. ;)

splendorpursuit on Jan 28, 2019:

Um, you literally have my #2 dream job. I would looooove to spend my time researching and introducing kids and teens to excellent reading material. I’m totally going to stalk your Goodreads account!! :)

Ps. Thanks for hosting the dream zine swap. I’m just about to start sketching it out. Yay!
