Hey there, I'm Tiffany! I'm the type of person that starts listening to holiday music the day after Halloween. I'm dairy-intolerant, but I miss cheese like crazy and sometimes say "screw it," and deal with consequences later. I have to wear petite clothing because I'm so short, but sometimes even those are too long. I'm a software engineer, but I'm starting to realize I don't like sitting at a desk 40 hours a week. 9.75 out of 10 weekends, you can find me walking uphill in the middle of nowhere. But this summer, you'll find me standing at the Northern Terminus of the PCT, ready for a nice long walk.
