Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I recently completed a long and difficult architecture graduate
Despite the length and difficulty of my profession, I am a low-key
person. Like a hobbit, I like places that are quiet, dark, and
I love to hike, ski, go for bike rides, walk, and hang out in
Somerville, and Cambridge when I am able. I consider myself an
athlete, an intellectual and a cosmopolitan person. I train 5-7
days a week on cardio equipment.
I listen to the BBC almost every weekday.
I love the dry articles they require us to read in graduate school,
like the ones on the De Stijl manifesto, the Constructivists,
Patrick Schumacher, and parametricism. I'm not always serious and
certainly like to laugh, and find many things to laugh at and
people with whom I can laugh. I am a serious student. I like
getting away from Boston periodically but like what it has to offer
as well. I'm a hiker but not super crunchy granola. I have a girlie
side too though I am into the outdoors. I support the green
movement but not like a crackpot. Wysiwig. I can't hike every
weekend, but make a point to go on a consistent basis.
Activities that I like:
-Hiking, hiking, hiking
-live music in small venues
-spa outings when possible
-backpacking in California
-go up north for a weekend to ski and swim in outdoor heated pool
when possible, sleep in and relax.
-board games, watch movies in theatre and on video
-ethnic food outings.
-biking to work (30 mi rdtrp.)
-swim in local ponds and lakes, the beach.
I go on a weeklong backpacking trip in California annually,
carrying a 40 pound backpack with a large group, stoves, bear cans,
and all else. Totally roughing it. i know it's not for everyone,
but doing it for 5 days is ok. I don't backpack that often though,
because I do like modern amenities.
