Sarah Enni is a full-time journalist living in Washington DC who preempted her quarterlife crisis by writing about paranormal goings-on involving teenagers. She gets a bit too competitive about things like Mario Kart, Taboo, and multi-player Tetris. In 20 years, she hopes to be hand-making letterpress cards in her used bookstore-coffeeshop-wine cafe.
