My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, my name is Ali (short for Alessandra). I'm complex and human. And a pretty cool lady.

I have a BA in Theatre Arts with an emphasis in acting. I volunteered with President Obama's grassroots team in 2012, then interned with Senator Jeff Merkley at his Portland office. I'll probably go to grad school some time in the next few years, but for now I'm content with working hard and resting hard.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently working full-time at the new CityTarget downtown as a leader of the front end.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Lots of things. But I'm not so good at describing them. So here's a short list of things I may or may not be really good at:
-Inspiring folks
-being funny/weird
-Writing things as they sound in my mind
-Being a friend to cats
-Being a friend to humans
-making people I like feel appreciated
-Teaching people how to do stuff
-Making cheap grilled cheese
-baking chocolate chip cookies, banana bread, various other baking items, and making good dinner sometimes
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm funny - at least, in person. People tend to start laughing within five minutes of meeting me. That's not to say that I'm some kind of class clown (well, not always!), I just like to make people smile and laugh. Also I have a very unique personality, and I always try to stay true to myself.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Water, Shelter, Food, Friends, Family, hope.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
NWSL (go Thorns!), how nice kittens are, what I want to do for the rest of my life, how to be social like a normal human of my age (including, but not limited to, Remedial Starting a Romantic Relationship which I seemed to have skipped or slept through in high school), clever things to say to people that I often forget to say
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't really have a typical Friday night. It could range anywhere from sitting at home alone watching TV, reading a book, or playing video games, going to a movie with a friend, seeing a concert, working late, or endless other possibilities.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I often browse Craigslist's missed connections, hoping that someone's missing me.

When I was a little girl, I actually believed I might secretly be a Sailor Scout and repeatedly attempted to transform into my Sailor Scout uniform (I thought I was "Sailor Planet X.")

I'm willing to admit anything. I only keep secrets when It's improper not to.
You should message me if

you want to. I can't guarantee I'll respond. I'll read your message, and I'll look at your profile. And if I think I might click with you, I'll respond. And if I don't respond, it's nothing about you, or how you look, or what you say. It's that intangible "something" that everyone looks for in someone else. It's just a matter of finding it in each other. I hope that's you as much as you might hope it's me. Give it a shot.
