Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a transplant to the Seattle area as of last week. I moved here
to attend graduate school. So, I hope to meet some new people in
this newly adopted land through this site.
In my free time, I enjoy exploring the city, hiking, working out
and reading. I plan on taking up cycling in the coming weeks as I
decided not to bring my car with me to Seattle. UPDATE: I found a
decent used bike yesterday. I should have it cleaned up and road
worthy by this weekend!
I love to travel. I travelled as much as possible during my
undergraduate through study abroad opportunities. As a result, I
have been to Costa Rica, Panama, Italy, Germany, Czech Republic,
Ireland, Uganda, England, El Salvador and the Philippines. I
believe that persons from differing cultures can learn from one
another. And, I love trying new foods. After I finish grad school,
I hope to continue my travels!
If anyone likes to swing dance, I would love to learn. I took a
beginner's class during my undergraduate and really enjoyed
Also, if you know Spanish or Italian, I'd love to learn it. Even
though I took 4 years of Spanish in high school and spend four
months in Florence Italy, my foreign language skills are in need of
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am going to graduate school and working as a graduate assistant.
In my free time, I like to explore the city.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I cook rather well. My specialities include chili, grilled meats
and vegetables and chicken marsala.

How should I know? You tell me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love reading. Among my favorites are: Unbroken, Kitchen
Confidential, Confessions of an Economic Hitman, A Clockwork
Orange, Catcher in the Rye, A Tale of Two Cities, Heroic
Leadership, In Defense of Food, Napalm and Silly Putty...and the
list goes on. Some of my favorite authors are: Edgar Allen Poe,
Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, and Anthony Bourdain.
I love movies. I must admit that I enjoy the Harry Potter series
along with other "kid" movies like Monsters Inc., Up and Kung Fu
Panda. But, I also enjoy adult movies such as Zombieland, Stranger
than Fiction, Saving Private Ryan, Braveheart, Monty Python Movies,
The Importance of Being Earnest etc etc etc.
I listen to all kinds of music. My preferences change often. Right
now, I am really into Colin Hay and Mumford and Sons.
I love trying new foods! There are very few things that I will not
eat. Also, while I am far from being a vegetarian or vegan, I do
tend to enjoy vegetarian and vegan dishes. For example, I prefer
soy chicken in salads as opposed to the real thing. And, I love
tofu. UPDATE: I have added a second food to the list of things
which I will no longer try. While at Uwajimaya, I decided to try
the pickled plums. Not for me. The other food I will not eat again
is a filapino delicacy: balut.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Besides the obvious: friends, family, work, journal, coffee and
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where my life will take me in the coming years. I couldn't have
imagined that I would be living in Seattle seeking a Masters Degree
in education this time last year. I wonder how many interesting
people I will meet on this new adventure and how they will change
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Not sure yet...ask me in a couple of weeks after I have been in
Seattle for a while.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can't think of anything that I wouldn't share with most people
right now. Ask me questions I guess.
