But what if you met her?

She goes by Spoons.

Thinks: in color, aspires to dream in Spanish, and always chooses left when given the option.

Loves: rooms full of strangers, the color yellow, the possibility of possibilities, libraries with vaulted ceilings, anything that hinges on the edge of ridiculous, and questions as the currency of conversations.

Known for: changing plans, being too excited about life, going (hard) into learning a little bit about everything, forgetting what year it is, and trying to make everyone smile.
