I don’t have a nickname. My mother called me “Bunny” as a child. Some people call me Erica and some call me Danielle. I was “Danielle” until I was 18 when I stopped correcting professors.
I was born in San Antonio, Texas. I lived in Texas until I was 12. I consider Charlottesville, Virginia my hometown though.
I have one older brother and a younger step brother.
Dying. Heights. Being cheated on.
3 Things I Love
Coffee. Cheese. Black men.
3 Things I Hate
Small animals like hamsters and frogs. Doing the dishes. Racism
Two Embarrassing Moments
- 6th grade. I started my period in class and my friend had to give me her sweatshirt to tie around my waist.
- We were singing Happy Birthday to a coworker. I was still breastfeeding my daughter. I “let down” and milk went all over my shirt. In front of everyone.
Any type of pasta and sushi (although it makes me sick sometimes)
What I did yesterday
I watched The Haunting of Hill House (10/10, would recommend)
