Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a new-ish addition to the Philadelphia metro area, since I
moved up here from North Carolina to go to school last year.
"high-functioning nerd," "political junkie," and "dry wit" are all
phrases that, deservedly or not, get thrown in my direction. Oh,
and I'm not kidding about the political junkie thing. Being a
Liberal and a Democrat is a major part of my identity, so if you
find talking politics tedious then I'll be tedious from time to
time. Sorry, but that's just how I roll.
It's now apparent to me that I don't know how to approach writing
these sorts of things, so I'm going to throw out some random
adjectives and descriptions of myself. I'm usually reserved or even
laconic at first, but that stops once I get comfortable with the
people I'm talking to or the things I'm talking about. I play the
trombone. I'm more of a cat person than a dog person, but I love my
parent's Golden Retriever and anxiously await the day that my
living situation will allow me to get a pet or two. I can't live
without Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert. I think that The Office
jumped the shark after season 4. I have a twin brother, but will
leave the question of whether one of us is evil, and if so which
one, as an exercise for the reader.
P.S.: If you enjoy Bridge or Settlers of Catan, you might already
be my favorite person in the state of Pennsylvania.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm grinding through my second year in law school. After that, I
intend to be a badass trial litigator, and hope that I can do that
while advancing the causes I believe in and not living in poverty.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Written argument. Spoken argument. Card games, board games, and
other stuff like that. Keeping things in perspective.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I say "y'all" but don't have an accent. People that notice this
usually then notice that I have an opinion about second person
pronouns in English.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Good things to read that aren't books
Friends, family, and loved ones
Having living green things nearby
My laptop. I just can't quit the internet
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
In my fantasy world, I'm usually out having a couple of drinks with
some my peeps, watching a movie, playing cards, or just hanging out
with friends. In the harsh light of reality, I'm doing schoolwork
or chilling to recover from said school work at least as often as
any of the cool stuff from the first sentence.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love graphs. I love reading them, I love making them, I love
humorously using them to capture the message of rap songs
/, if you haven't seen it). The
corollary to this is that I have spent more time using Excel for
non-work and non-school purposes than any sane person would admit.
