Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to think of myself as a yes-person. Yes to new foods, new
people, new experiences. As far as I know, we only get one shot at
this and I'm looking to make the most of it. As Kurt Vonnegut said
so wisely, "I tell you, we are here on Earth to fart around, and
don't let anybody tell you different." People take life too
seriously and while yes, there are some serious parts of life, ones
I've seen and lived, but that has made me realize all the more how
ridiculous it is to get worked up over the insignificant
I could not live without mountains. I'm an avid hiker, occasional
backpacker, seasoned camper. I also am big on traveling. I know
everyone must say this, but I live it. And I have every intention
on making traveling a regular part of my life for the rest of my
I'm quite extroverted and am not afraid to make conversation with
people I interact with outside of my circle. People have become so
removed from the world and are timid about talking to their
neighbor. I find that very odd and try to do my part to change it
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just got a new job I start this week doing development work at a
local non-profit! It's not about the paycheck, it's about feeling
committed to and proud of what you do every daywhen I'm not
working, I'm enjoying the city, going to shows, working out,
hiking/camping, reading, netflixing, grilling out with friends, and
soaking up the Seattle summer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Carrying a tune.
Being a clutz.
Striking up conversations with strangers.
Editing (seriously, I'll make your resume sparkle).
Having a sense of humor.
Laughing at life.
Making extravagant plans and following through on them 50% of the
Being an aunt.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably eyes, both their color as well as the fact they get all
squinty when I smile big. I'm also a loud, direct, and honest
communicator - no BS here.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love to read and usually have a few books going at once. A few
favorites: The Road, The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, A
Brief History of Nearly Everything, Lamb, Man Without A Country (or
any Kurt Vonnegut), Still Life With Woodpecker, Devil in the White
City. I find myself slowly transitioning from ficiton to
nonfiction. Currently reading The Female Brain and a collection of
essays by Hunter S. Thompson. Also a lot of News! Being informed on
current events is sexy.
Live music is something that makes me feel truly ALIVE so I try to
see it often. I grew up on classic rock, my childhood town forced
me to get into country but I only really listen to it when I'm back
home as of recently. Currently listening to a lot of Jamestown
Revival and whatever Songza playlist strikes my fancy. Oh and a lot
of NPR and KEXP.
Shows I dig: Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Newsroom, High Maitenance,
Arrested Development, West Wing, Breaking Bad.
Food: sushi alldayeryday. Mexican, Indian, brunch, pies, fancy
cheeses, pasties....I will eat pretty much anything. My only
dislikes are green peppers and peas.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A lot of laughter
Beer, particularly Cold Smoke
Delicious dinner with friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Places I want to travel.
Things I want to cook or create.
How can I fit more into this day??
How I can better myself.
Inequality/Social Justice Issues
Why are people so rude to one another?
Is technology making the world better or worse?
How surreal all this can seem sometimes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Kicking it over a few brews at home or a friend's house or
somewhere out in Ballard. Unless its summer and then I'm
cabling/backpacking somewhere epic or on my back deck BBQing and
watching the sun set over the Olympics.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
