Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Lived in LA for eight years but grew up on the east coast. I'll
give you a hint, it's a state more people drive through than
actually live in. (That's a statistical fact and I challenge anyone
who disputes it). I went to school in NYC (a city still very near
and dear to my heart). I am not only gainfully employed, but also a
well-rounded person, with my own friends, credit cards, and keys.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am currently working for the American Film Institute in the
thesis finance management office. I'm a big admirer of the work AFI
does and of their overall mission. So I'm very much looking forward
to learning as much as I can while working there.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing run-on sentences, as you'll notice from this profile. That
actually, might be on right there. Oh, another thing I'm really
good at is getting words rejected from urban dictionary. I think I
hold the record for it. That being said, I got my first word
accepted last year: pre-vite. You can look it up, only if you
promise to use it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have been told I have an extensive collection of t-shirts. I go
to a lot of shows and I like to buy shirts to support the artist.
I've also been told that I wear green and brown a lot. And when I
wear brown pants and a green shirt, that I look like a tree. I will
neither confirm nor deny this.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'll try to boil this down to what I am currently consuming.
BOOKS: Currently reading Eight Men by Richard Wright and looking
forward to diving into Naomi Klein's new book. In fact, there's a
bunch of new books out that I need to read. If anybody wants to go
TV SHOWS: The Simpsons (always and forever), Futurama, Louie, Veep,
Justified, Black Jesus, Daily Show, Colbert, Last Week
MOVIES: My favorites of 2014 thus far: The Grand Budapest Hotel,
Under the Skin, The Immigrant, We Are The Best! Only Lovers Left
Alive. The list for every other year goes on and on and on, I'll
watch/try to give pretty much anything a chance.
MUSIC: Pearl Jam, Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Frightened Rabbit (and Owl
John of course Cat Power, The National, Explosions in the Sky,
Sharon Van Etten, How to Dress Well, We Were
Perfume Genius, Gem Club, Sun Kil Moon, Twilight sad, Red House
Painters, Mark Kozelek (basically the entire Calo Verde rainbow
assortment of artists)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I really have no idea how to answer this question. I had a jokey
response for a while that was either a terrible joke or terribly
executed. So I'm just going to leave it blank except for this
paragraph I am currently writing.
Hope that helps?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
That Calvin and Hobbes might be the greatest work of visual art of
the 20th century.
(Extreme hyperbole but let's use that as a jumping off point and
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I eat cereal dry. You heard me, no milk, just a bowl and a spoon. I
realize those last two elements are unnecessary but what would you
have me do? Eat it out of the box?
I am not an animal.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
This is another section of the profile wherein it's hard to strike
the right balance between sincerity and jocularity. I guess,
perhaps the best thing to put down would be if you fret over these
stupid profiles as much as I do, we'll probably have loads to say
to each other :)
