Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
5:30am - alarm goes off - snooze.
5:35am - 2nd alarm goes off. At some point in my 20s I became
paranoid about not getting up in the morning. Which my job wouldn’t
even care about. And yet. Snooze.
5:39am - alarm 1. snooze.
5:44am - alarm 2. snooze.
6:00am - drag myself out of bed, dress.
6:15am - carry work bag, gym bag, lunch bag and usually at least 1
more bag out of apartment to my ’96 civic which is still doing just
fine though the clutch took some serious wear and tear while I
learned how to navigate the hills of SF (I am from a much flatter
6:20am - drive down 101, pretend to be annoyed that NPR is having a
pledge drive and I’m being FORCED to listen to pop radio
6:25am - sing at the top of my lungs to the latest pop
6:45am - arrive at the JCC of the peninsula, where I work out and
then eavesdrop on the old ladies in the locker room who are
arriving for their water aerobics class as I get ready for work.
Ethel gets PISSED when someone takes her locker. Sally won’t shut
up about the Giants.
8:30am - 6pm workworkworkworkworkworkwork.
6pm - decide its time to leave for the day.
7pm - leave for the day. Drive back to the city while re-working my
original plan to drop car at home and take muni to dinner so I can
still attempt to experience city living.
7:45-8pm - drive around the Mission looking for parking while
texting (Siri-ing?) that I swear I’ll just be 5 more minutes.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Work - financial management for an education technology
Play - When I first moved to SF urban hiking (aka walking around)
was my favorite pastime - this city has got a lot of beautiful
buildings and amazing views. Now that I've settled in I'm working
on my green thumb, attempting to jog around these hills, and
enjoying time with friends.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh, usually at stories, sometimes with puns
(though sometimes I'm the only one that laughs at those).
Staying calm in traffic on my daily commute
Singing at the top of my lungs while alone in my car (explanation
Listening to NPR (another explanation for above)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My laugh, my smile. Contagious, I'm told.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

This is not a great question for me, because 1 - I am not picky
about these things, and 2 - I have a pretty terrible memory, so I
usually forget about them not long after I read/watch them. I once
was halfway though a book when a friend saw what I was reading and
said 'oh, you're re-reading that?' She remembered that I'd read it
several years before. I had no such memory. That said, a few that
have stuck in my mind - The Timetraveler's Wife (sci-fi meets urban
modern love story), The Breakfast Club (most things I love I was
introduced to before my 15th birthday), My So-Called Life (an
exception to the previous rule).
Music - 80's and 90's pop and hip-hop to sing along with and dance
to, acoustic-y folk-rocky to enjoy quietly or live.
Food - most (though not a huge fan of seafood).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
These are all going to be people. You don't know them, but trust
me, they're awesome.
If that answer doesn't suffice...lets see...life would be both more
difficult and much simpler without the internet. Harder to stay
awake through without coffee. Less pleasant without a good book.
Harder to see without my glasses.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Should I trust Waze, or my gut?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out to dinner with friends.
