Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
You’ve come across a tall Virginia boy who brought his manners and
“howdy”s up north, but who only hunts for good Thai places (and

Yorker article about health care then binge drink to win a game;
who will hike a mountain then waste an afternoon joking around on
the couch; who will listen attentively to others then enrich a
conversation with vivacity and wit. In other words, those who don’t
feel the need to be something in particular (and can therefore
enjoy doing all kinds of things).

FOOD: I'm a vegan but I'm seriously not one of THOSE vegans (I
cannot emphasize this enough). I really don't care what you eat
(unless it's olives...that will gross me out). I also really like
cereal. Visitors to my apartment usually compliment and/or mock my
10-15 box cereal shelf.
