Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love singing, football, musical theatre, and politics. I believe
in the power of compassion to change the world. I'm an extrovert
and love being around people. Other joys in my life are Buddhism,
pugs, cuddling, and making everything into puns.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A beer at the end of a long day
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think a lot about the world/trying to solve its problems,
politics, music, and football. I enjoy meditation in those moments
where I'd like to quiet my mind down (although that's always easier
said than done!).
