Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a playful, energetic, silly person with a fierce determined
side that believes in fighting for justice and community. I don't
tend to focus on what people think of me, but I just live my life
as who I am and let people accept me or not for that.
I come from a very close, loving family who taught me to care for
those around me. I know that my family will always be there for me
if I ever need help and support which I'm very grateful for and I
will always be there for my family if they need anything.
I don't know what else to tell you except that whether it works out
or not, I promise to make getting to know me an enjoyable
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an EMT working for a company based in Western North Dakota. I
live in Denver part-time and in North Dakota part time.
I spend a lot of my time with my family and closest friends. I tend
to focus on having more meaningful relationships and friendships
with fewer people.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I love cooking and I take pride in letting myself be creative. I
love to make unique dishes and explore different cuisines and
techniques. I also love baking and enjoy making pastries. I'm
fascinated with food science, so I love learning about that, but
either way, I don't think I could live without cooking.
Other than that, I'm not too shabby at math. My math doesn't taste
as good as my pastries, but if you ever need somebody to help you
with some math homework, I'm pretty good at that, too.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People say I have nice legs when I'm wearing shorts, but they also
might notice that I'm talking like the Cookie Monster and that's
how I answer my phone.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I think that overall my interest in popular culture or my knowledge
of music, tv shows and movies is extremely limited compared to most
people that I meet. As a kid, I listened to songs and would never
care who was singing it. I'd even dance, appreciate the artist but
never put the time in to know who I listened to.
When people around me start talking about their favorite bands, I
usually haven't heard of any of them. It's the way that I've always
been, so I don't think that the best way to connect with me is to
talk about some music that you like. But for the sake of it,
growing up, I loved listening to Salt n Peppa, SWV, Tupac and Bell
Biv Devoe. Nowadays, I love dancing to funk and soul more than
As far as movies and TV goes, I watched my share of TV, but when I
was growing up, so often my TV shows were science shows and nature
documentaries. So, if you watched PBS and loved watching 3-2-1
Contact, we might remember some of the same shows, but overall, I'm
ignorant of a lot of the stuff out there. Where I grew up as a kid
in Northern New Mexico, we only had PBS.
I don't have a TV right now, but I enjoy watching The Big Bang
Theory when I go to my grandma's house, but I don't watch any shows
on a regular basis.
As far as movies go, I like fantasy movies alright. I usually have
no idea which movies are out now nor do I usually go to the
theater. I loved watching The Princess Bride with my uncle when I
was in high school and we both lived in my grandpa's basement. I
remember watching Star Trek with him every night until he had to go
to bed, but sometimes we'd stay up late and watch Monty
I also loved Kids in the Hall growing up and I appreciate comedy
such as Hari Kondabolu.
As for food, that's completely different. I love to explore all
kinds of different foods. I've already mentioned that I love
cooking. I have fond memories of cooking food with my grandpa when
he was alive.
I love inexpensive, non-pretentious food that somebody's grandma
made the best. I love the food in some expensive restaurants, but
they better truly bring the flavor because I don't give a shit
about the atmosphere. And I'm happier when I can go to a hole in
the wall with better food than most fancy places.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Affection -- There are different ways of expressing affection, but
one way or another, I'm very affectionate and I like people who are
too. (Even when they're friends)
Good Food -- Cooking and eating.
Play -- I am not above climbing a tree, playing tag or generally
running around like a little kid.
Fighting for Justice -- Without fighting against oppression, I'd
feel like I was wasting my life. How to do this, which struggles to
take a part in and how to effectively do so is something that I'm
evaluating right now.
Family and Community -- Having support and people to care about is
vital to life. I believe in getting to know your neighbors and
looking out for each other. I love having a large family who will
always be there for me and I'll be there for them.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I have always enjoyed math and science since I was a little kid and
growing up that's what I found most fascinating, but now that I'm
older, I've found that I think more about people: How they relate
to each other, how systems of oppression affect us and how to
dismantle systems of oppression.
But, I still enjoy math and science, so I still think about that a
lot as well.
I've also noticed that I tend to think more about health and
building support than I did when I was a bit younger.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm starting a new phase in life. I'm not sure what my Friday
nights are going to look like. I can tell you that bars usually
bore me, but anything can be fun with the right company.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not really a private person. I'll answer most questions you
might ask so long as you do it respectfully.
