Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a learning enthusiast. If you have something that you can show
me how to do or teach me about, we will hit it off right away. I
get really enthusiastic about learning experiencing new things and
cultivating new talents. Enrichment is life.
I love travel. I don't mind going a distance to get somewhere new,
or to do something cool. I thrive in diversity and culture, and get
into periods of time where I'm focus on a set of traditions,
cuisine, or just a location that I want to know everything
I'm learning French for my career, but also just for fun. I am
planning a trip to Europe in my near future. Puvez-vous parler le
français? Dites-moi quelque chose!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
With my career being on track and my finances set, I am focusing in
again on time spent outside of work. I am reevaluating some of my
interests, both when alone and with friends. If I want the most out
of life, I feel as though I should be open to change. Change after
all is what has allowed my to flourish in my pastry career.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Baking pastry and cooking in general.
Finding horrendously bad movies that make me (and only a select,
brave few) happy (special profile-reader's note: do NOT let me near
your netflix queue).
Fixing poorly thought out crochet patterns.
Enjoying life for all of its wonders. Coincidentally, also writing
overly-lame self truths.

There is a lot more than just what I write down here. This just
seems like a good start...
Books - Give me ALL the information. I love sociology books. I read
a ton about food and nutrition, and a fair amount about history. I
really enjoy good tragedy and dystopic futures. I'm currently
rereading Robert Asprin's Myth Adventures, a favorite when I was
younger. I also read comics, and while you would likely put me in
the category of "fanatic" it doesn't come up as often as you'd
think, unless you chose to get me started (PS - feel free to get me
started, I'd love to chat comics with you).
Movies - Grabbers was probably the best movie I've seen recently. I
like good horror, along with silly or cheesy horror. Same goes with
sci-fi, and I'm a huge MST3K fan. I have a not-so-secret Bollywood
obsession, and love other foreign cinema. Over-the-top kung-fu
(think Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky) is always an easy sell for
Shows - Currently I am netflixing through Star Trek:TNG (season 3),
Futurama (season 4), and Archer (season 3). I have an Adventure
Time obsession. I truly enjoyed Firefly, Dexter (though I haven't
watched past season 3), and Boston Legal. It is my opinion that The
Guild is a million times better than The Big Bang theory, and am
prepared to share my compelling argument as to why.
Music - My last concert was Foxy Shazam at Social, and it was
beyond amazing. In my CD changer for my car I have The Mad Caddies,
The Shinobi MC, Mindless Self Indulgence, Gogol Bordello, Less Than
Jake and Kate Earl. I have favorites in every genre - you will find
music that we both enjoy. I stream radio from France and I adore
soundcloud for good mixes. I really enjoy electroswing, DrumStep,
and breakbeat for my electronic tastes.
Food - make it really foreign or really local. I cook for a living,
and love to try new stuff. I love Vietnamese, Japanese, and new
Spanish cuisine. The closest I will get to fast food is sketchy
Chinese takeout. I rarely eat meat, but I am not vegetarian. I just
get more excited by meatless foods, because of the focus on fresh
ingredients and striking flavors. My favorite grocery stores here
are Eat More Produce and Jason's Asian Supermarket.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Cooking My Own Food - I like a restaurant on occasion, but I love
cooking most everything I eat. I teach people how to cook in return
for home grown vegetables.
High Energy Music - I sing while I drive. I like to stay upbeat,
and find good music can really help to turn around a not-so-great
day. I also love a live show or good DJ. I will dance.
Variety - I can enjoy pretty much anything on some level, so I make
a good adventure partner. Variety, as they say, is the spice of
Internet - the only way I can keep touch with my friends all over
the globe. Email is a wonderful thing.
Staying ACTIVE - Being fit is really important to me. Not only is
it mandatory in my job, but I always want the stamina and strength
to do whatever activity grabs my interest. I'm a little limited at
the moment, having broken my wrist this winter, but I still manage
to do just about anything. I will join for any outdoor/active
interest you may have, or work out with you at the gym.
A Good Place to Unwind - My apartment is cozy, but as much as I
love it sometimes I like to relax elsewhere. At home you always
feel like you could be doing something productive, so to really
relax or focus on just one thing, nothing beats a good cup of tea,
coffee, or even beer outside of the house.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My job. To stay competitive, I have to keep ideas flowing and
constantly research. I'm not out to beat out anyone in particular,
just to be the absolute best I can possibly become.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working. I'm a typical food-service worker. Saturdays I am much
more likely to be out doing something, since Sundays are so slow.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can live without a cell phone, but I need it for my job. I would
be fine with just a house phone to contact out of state friends and
family if it were up to me.
