Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
If you tell me I look like Harry Potter, I will find you irl, and I
will cast a hair-loss curse on you.
I think life is mainly a joke, but the punchline is complicated.
It's nice to think you know what your doing, at least.
More to come, enjoy the rest for now.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Finishing a B.A. in linguistics, and thinking about what comes next
in life, I guess mainly how and where and when I want to pursue a
I'm doing research this summer, including an ongoing project about
an endangered Latin American language. I've always wanted an
exciting and offbeat career, and field research seems to be calling
I attend a buddhist meditation center; I suppose that makes me a
'buddhist', though I don't really identify that way. I like the
community there, and I believe that 'some sort' of spiritual
practice is important for people, whatever shape it comes in.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, academic writing, fixing things, and showing an unusually
high amount of affection to my road bike.

Woody Allen movies, Children of Men, Taxi Driver, La Vita Bella,
and Inglorious Bastards. I think Philly Film Festival is great and

I cook well and often and I eat healthy (barring anywhere outside

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The outdoors (all kinds of activities). I would be as glad to have
a picnic in the park as taking ice climbing classes. That question
about what is more romantic "going to Paris" or "camping" is very
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'm an introvert and tend to spend a lot of time in my head. Aside
from being (probably excessively) introspective, I read about and
think a lot about development criticism topics. It is something
that I have a very, very strong interest in and will write about
when I'm a little older and more experienced. I would like to DO
something with it, short of joining a commune in a national park,
if only I knew what.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm more of a homebody type but I still have plenty of adventure -
both in the city with friends and out in the woods and mountains.
