My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I wear many hats figuratively and many more scarves literally. I would rather be mediocre at many things than incredible at a few things (although this often comes back to bite me in my insecure butt). I'd like to think I'm open-minded, and I try to be nice. The world is a beautiful place full of beautiful things and even more beautiful people; any country/city is an opportunity to learn and enjoy things you never thought you would before.

Also, British TV is the best. And if you don't like Tex-Mex food or Indian music (of any variety), I suggest you turn away now.

Happy hunting!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a graduate student focusing on Political Anthropology (if you don't know what it is, Google it). In my free time, I enjoy dancing, learning music, and scaring away people who say they "just want to meet someone different" by being...well...different.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Learning and singing songs in other languages. Not even learning other languages. Just the songs. And I know what they mean when I sing them.

Also, calling out people who are racist or sexist. Keep this in mind, okc.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
To quote the Madeline intro song: "She may be very tiny, diminutive, petite, but that has never stopped her from [trying to be] pretty neat!"

After that, I have been told that I am endearingly talkative and actually kinda funny. And that I have a mischievous face (hmm…?).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Non-fiction (history or social sciences, generally) and comedy. Favorite book ever is "Fierce Pajamas," an anthology of comedy writing from the New Yorker.

Movies/Shows: Make me laugh.

All three of the above can be summed up with the followings: Steve Martin and Woody Allen.

BUT, other favorite comics include: Russell Peters (because duh), Eugene Mirman, Flight of the Conchords, Maria Bamford, Stella, and David Mitchell. And if you don't like Archer or Arrested Development, we probably won't be friends.

Music: I hate the term "World Music." Just because it's the rest of the world to us doesn't mean they don't have genres and styles of their own. That said, I've studied Indian, Javanese, and Middle Eastern music. Also, anything with heavy bass makes me super happy. Been on an electro-swing kick lately (after my longass Die Antwoord phase).

Food: All of it. Junk/Expensive. If it's tasty, I like it. Current guiltiest pleasure: Double-fried pork belly from a local Chinese place. But I normally order it with eggplant/broccoli on the side to not hate myself for getting it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Music
2. Dance
3. Car
4. Books (on everything, particularly the social sciences. And anything by James Thurber, S.J. Perelman, Dorothy Parker, or Gerald Durrell)
5. Other cultures (Not quite sure how to phrase this, but I love studying other cultures and people. So...that's now a thing)
6. Winter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what makes me happy and how I'm going to find it. Right now, that means figuring out how to use my interests to help people.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
enjoying that sweet, bohemian, bachelorette life in my sweet, bohemian bachelorette pad with my awesome friends smoking hookah, watching horrendously bad Bollywood movies, and not getting too drunk because I probably have to teach dance the next morning. If I do leave my apartment, it'll be for somewhere that's not an obnoxiously loud bar (looking at you, Atlas).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm allergic to chickpeas and cats. The hippie dream of being a vegan cat lady is, alas, unachievable. Related: I fill the ensuing voids in my life with dance and bacon.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
a) you ask me questions about myself and can hold a conversation, cause there ain't nothin' sadder than matching with a cute person and finding out they don't know how to get to know people.

b) you understand my frustration when I wonder why, for the love of god, people say "Namaste" to me in reality or in okcupid messages.

c) you enjoy geeking out about your chosen field of study/work as much as you enjoy a crazy dance party for one: a lot

d) you can spend two weeks traveling around/falling in love with a third-world country without modern amenities/complaining about "cultural shortfalls."

e) you are a lovely person who would be happy even just to talk to someone new :)
