Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello. I am currently working on figuring out what I want to with
my life. I was going to be a doctor for a while, but changed my
mind there, so I've taken a few semesters off and am currently
working on a degree in Psychology, Biology, and Chemistry.
Hopefully headed to a graduate program in Neuroscience next
I like to travel; I've been to Israel, England, France, and quite a
bit of the US. Always looking forward to more voyages in the
future. I try to get out of Cleveland once every few months. I also
enjoy good food, wine, going to museums, having a good beer.
Writing is, clearly, not something at which I excel. I apologize if
reading any of this has bored you to tears. I hope to god I'm more
interesting then this in real life.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
(see above) — Finally finishing my bachelors (will be done next
year and I cannot wait). Grad school next. I study brains and how
they work; it's pretty cool. I work in a lab doing research. I'm
the lab bitch, but it is still interesting.
We shall see...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Isn't this section a bit self-laudatory?
The first things people usually notice about me

They are blue.
People feel the need to tell me this often. Maybe they think I've
never noticed them in 27 years... I don't know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love food. All of it. I don't have a favorite. That's a lie; duck
is my favorite. I just love it all as long as it's good.
I used to read a lot but in the past few years I've kinda stopped.
Currently Reading some Bukowski and the Discworld series by Terry
Pratchett. Camus and Vonnegut are by far my favorite authors. There
is a special place in my heart for all of Tolkien's books. I really
want to like Game of Thrones, but I'm having a difficult time
getting into it.
Music is all over the place. I love Classical and jazz. Maynard
Ferguson is my hero. I really enjoy classic rock, especially
British Invasion stuff, The Beatles, The Who, The Kinks, etc. I was
huge into ska a long time ago; I still love Streetlight Manifesto.
Random other bands I really like: The Gaslight Anthem, Trampled by
Turtles, Bon Iver, Of Monsters and Men, Cake, Mumford and Sons,
Colin Hay, Matt and Kim, et al.
I like a lot of movies but I generally prefer television. I like
that there is a lot more time to learn about the characters and
have them really "come alive" over the course of a series.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:
Water: e.g. a lake or the ocean. Somewhere to sail.
Companionship of some sort. Alternatively, bourbon works too.
Duck. It's delicious.
Did I say coffee? I'm going with coffee again. It's that important.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Studying or reading articles mostly. I know, I'm really
I do go out occasionally.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My new goal in life is to run a 100-miler ultramarathon. One of the
big ones like Western States or Hardrock or Leadville. It's a long
way off and seems insurmountable, but hopefully I'll get there one
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to grab a coffee or a beer. Or go for a run.
The CMA is always a great way to spend the afternoon.
Or you have an idea for something I've never done before here in
Cleveland. I'm always looking for new things to do.
