Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have a checkered history with household appliances, and I am
fairly certain they are now actively plotting against me.
That seems like a pretty reasonable introduction.
Beyond that, I'm still relatively new to the DC / NOVA area. I
moved here after spending two years in New York City, but I grew up
and went to school in Florida. Basically, if it's on the east
coast, I've probably spent time there.
I don't take myself too seriously, and I have been informed on a
number of occasions that a person's first impression of me turned
out to be completely off-base.
I'm out of interesting things to say, so let's move on.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I do IT consulting, which I'm just now realizing sounds much more
lame when you write it out. Anyway, I (mostly) really enjoy what I
do, and working from coffee shops and bakeries isn't the worst
thing in the world.
Being my friends' and family's personal IT department,
however...slightly less enthusiastic about that.
Outside of work, I'm usually playing basketball, eating something,
attempting to catch up on TV that I've missed, or making feeble
attempts to familiarize myself with the convoluted DC
If life were a video game, navigating DC would be Hard Mode.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Falling asleep in loud environments or on vehicles in motion. I'm
serious about this.
- Making obscure observations, but completely missing obvious
- Missing the metro by like 3 seconds...or better yet, having to
sprint to catch one of the cars. And then boarding -- expertly
stifling my accelerated breathing -- and acting like everyone else
on the train are the weird ones.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Everyone likes lists:
Anything by Chuck Klosterman, mostly anything by Malcolm Gladwell,
all types of biographies; I find them fascinating...slowly working
my way into reading more fiction. Oh, and Harry Potter is pretty
I grew up with Will Ferrell and Jim Carrey. Star Wars. All types of
documentaries, the subject is irrelevant. Disney movies and I'm not
ashamed to admit it.
If it makes me laugh or think or evokes any kind of strong emotion,
Currently taking applications.
All of it. Just...all of it. Living in places like NYC and DC
really expands your palate.
Discussion is acceptable and encouraged.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- When / if the Magic are ever going to be a relevant basketball
- The optimal combination of ingredients to make delicious
smoothies. I'm very excited about my new blender.
- What color socks I should wear tomorrow.
- My future. Life is crazy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either hanging out a friend's place or downtown somewhere. Or back
in New York, visiting my friends. Or I might be at home.
I'd be interested to see who has the most unique answer to this
question, because that's basically what everyone writes.
