I'm Ellie! I'm 24, just about to leave a 2-year-long nannying job in San Francisco and move to Nancy, France to begin a teaching job. I went to college at Wellesley College right outside of Boston where I studied English + French. I like to read--mostly fiction, poetry, and feminist theory. I sneak a Stephen King novel in there every once in a while. I watch a good amount of TV, though much of it is repeats of the good stuff that I revere, namely 30 Rock and Arrested Development. I'm quite particular about my clothes and my nail polish but not particularly fussy overall. I'm a good houseguest in that my mother raised me to love vacuuming and abhor clutter to an almost antiseptic degree. She also did me the favor of teaching me to swear wildly and choose candy over vitamins, so it evened out in the end.
