Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Metal-loving, tea drinking, Sinophile Tarheel with an affinity for
laughter. I love making stupid jokes and faces (the latter
especially when someone is taking my picture), traveling when
possible, and my friends and family more than anything. I'm
sensitive (with perhaps a overly-heightened sense of empathy),
caring, a good listener, and an idealist at heart. INFP all the
I'm a huge nerd. I once challenged my equally nerdy Physics teacher
to a game of Star Wars Trivial Pursuit and I kicked his ass.
A best friend of mine asked me to include this in my profile: I'm a
huge whore for massages, head rubs, ice cream, and good stories. He
didn't know all of those from personal experience, but he's a good
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I wear a lot of hats, but I'm primarily a researcher and a writer.
I also brief a lot and have recently been brought into the
management side of things. Work is really stressful but also really
fulfilling; I'm picking up a lot of valuable skills, but also a lot
of grey hairs. That's what I get for my dedication and passion
I'm also currently going to GW for a masters in international

Kid, Farewell My Concubine, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,
Shows: Archer, Modern Family, Adventure Time, Louie, Game of

gravitate toward metal. I like Metallica, the Sword, Opeth, and
Volbeat. However, I like buttloads of other bands, such as the Goo
Goo Dolls, Led Zeppelin, Matchbox 20, etc.
Food: Italian, Chinese, American, Vietnamese, Thai... honestly, I
love most food unless it came from the ocean.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) The obvious, but the ones who can't be discounted (family,
friends, God) - basically, I live for authentic personal connection
2) A pad and paper - something about a blank spiral notebook
3) My guitar
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Funny thing is, I spend so much time in my head that I don't even
realize I'm doing it sometimes. So... everything? I'm a classic
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
After a long work week I'll either be enjoying some drinks with my
co-workers or giving myself some time to recharge. One notable
Friday I got a massage (Chinese acupressure, of course!), ordered a
Dominos pizza, watched Karate Kid, and just laid on my couch until
it was time for bed. That was probably the most perfect Friday
That said, I'm usually/almost always open for more exciting
