Hi! I'm Eden. I'm a twenty year old college kid from Colorado, now
studying English and Law and Mandarin at Northeastern University in
I'm culturally Jewish but not really too big on the whole religion
thing in general. I guess it just doesn't really factor into my
life. No biggie if you like that stuff though.
I'm in love with books and reading. Right now next to me on my desk
is some Roth, Zadie Smith, Hesse, etc, etc. Books are the
Going to concerts is one of my favorite activities. I love the
sweaty crowd, pounding music, the moshing. Not too big into clubs,
I like people with great senses of humor, and also people with
strong opinions! So please, show me who you are.
What I’m doing with my life
I want to be a writer, which is sort of driving the direction I'm
going. I wrote a book when I was sixteen, and we'll see how this
continues. I work on poetry, screenplays, short stores, all of that
If the writing thing doesn't pan out, I'm also planning on going to
law school to hopefully work in the area of civil rights law. I
have a huge interest in law and legal services and using those
things in order to help people.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at skiing, coming from a family with a strong
athletic background and a genetic love of cold weather. I worked as
a ski patroller for a number of years, and raced for a while as
well. I also really love to run, and often get lost in my head on
long runs listening to my iPod. I'm also really good at telling
dumb jokes and laughing my ass off at stupider jokes. Cooking is
something I also consider a passion, and I spend long hours in the
kitchen making awesome vegetarian recipes.
The first things people usually notice about me
People usually comment right off the bat on my name, and over and
over again I have to explain that yes, I was raised by hippies.
Secondly, they notice my deep ingrained sense of fashion (flannel
forever!) and my sometimes, if I'm lucky, my smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Oh god, don't get me started on books. My favorite writer is David
Foster Wallace, and I am currently in the middle of my third and
arduous rereading of Infinite Jest.
I have tons and tons of favorite movies, being a bit of a film
geek, but here are a few of them: Pulp Fiction, The Big Lebowski,
127 Hours, High Fidelity, and (500) Days of Summer.
I don't watch much TV in general, but I do love me some Office
(American version) and Arrested Development. However, I am looking
for a new good show, so recommend me anything!
As far as food goes, I am a vegetarian, so there goes a whole
subsection. But I definitely have a soft spot for Italian and
The six things I could never do without
-My iPod. That thing has all the songs that I love on it, and I'd
go crazy without it.
-A pen. Who knows when you'll need it?
-Coffee. I get the world's worst headaches if I don't have my
-My Boloco gift card. Need me some good burritos.
-My phone, so I can talk to all of your beautiful faces.
On a typical Friday night I am
Maybe at a party, maybe sitting at home watching a Korean action
movie and eating dip with a spoon. Depends on the mood, depends on
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That I have a deep and ingrained love for anything Beach Boys
I also love really bad hip hop (looking at you, Kanye!) and I have
no idea why.
