What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Switched jobs 4 months ago and I’m really happy I made the jump. I
was in a rut at my last job and it feels great to be learning new
things again. My background is in economics, but I’m working as an
analyst looking at various government programs and recommending
ways to improve them.
I took classes with the Mountaineers when I first moved to Seattle
and have been going on trips through the club since then. If you’re
interested in getting into the outdoors, their basic scramble and
basic climbing classes are great.
I try to get over to the SIFF Uptown to catch a movie once or twice
a month, especially if they’re having a special event. The last one
was a Princess Bride quote-a-long, but I’ve gone to an all-day
movie marathon and a Nicholas Cage film festival. I left at
Con-Air; Hair Extension Cage was my limit.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Conversation. I’m on the quieter side until I get to know someone,
then I love to talk. It’s great to get people talking about
something they care about and seeing their eyes light up.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I’m tall and wiry with wavy blond hair. I hear that I have nice
eyes and a good smile a lot.

In a World was a fun comedy about a part-time voice coach
(played by Lake Bell) who wants to become the first woman to
deliver the classic "In a world..." movie trailer narration. She
lives with her dad, a fading name in the voice-over business who is
also vying for the part. Although there are sub-plots about a
romance (played by Demetri Martin) and her sister's troubled
marriage, I thought the heart of the movie is about the tension
placed on the main character's relationship with her father.
Her attempts to win the part and escape her general malaise force
her dad to confront his fears of becoming obsolete in a changing
industry. Even though it's a simple movie, it had some funny
dramatic narration, likable characters, and a good attitude.
