Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Why don't I just break some stereotypes?
I am a country bumpkin who can identify all of the major types of
cattle in Florida and properly care for a horse. I can also
navigate the city bus system and switch off my accent at
As a lady, I never curse, my manners are impeccable, and my makeup
is always done carefully.
My favorite place to play as a child was the deep woods behind the
house, and I learned which plants were edible so that I didn't have
to go home for lunch.
I love talking about video games.
I am socially liberal and fiscally conservative.
I forego wearing shoes whenever possible.
I have a black belt in two martial arts.
I had an Associate of Arts degree by the age of seventeen.
What do you think?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm in school right now, working on the last year of my bachelor's.
Then I'm applying to every decent vet school in the country.
(There's only twenty-seven of them.)
I don't like to plan more than a few years ahead. I just try to set
my future self up with the best tools to work with.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have a pretty generic set of skills; cooking, needle-craft,
chemistry and biology, animal husbandry, etc.
One unusual talent I have, courtesy of my southern lady lessons, is
the practice of subtlety. I can read people and influence them
without anyone noticing. I pretty much always get my way, but my
way is best for everyone involved. Promise.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People nearly always instantly classify me as helpless and harmless
because I'm small and sweet and have big blue eyes.
I rarely get in and out of a hardware store without someone
fetching and/or carrying my things for me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

^That there is an awful long list of things. Here goes, in
I particularly love The Book Thief, and my childhood was made
complete by The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, A Wrinkle in
Time, and their respective accompanying novels.
I love witty movies from the late fifties, like Breakfast at
Tiffany's, although sometimes I am forced to acknowledge that older
movies have woefully antiquated morals sometimes. (Audrey, honey,
you don't ever marry a man who tells you, "He's as interested in
your intellect as I am!" while trying to convince you of someone's
Depending on my mood, I like to watch How I Met Your Mother,
Battlestar Galactica, Doctor Who, or Psych, among others.
Anything from Death Cab for Cutie to Pachelbel to Taylor Swift to
Monsters and Men might be good. My genres are eclectic, but I
usually only like particular songs from any one place.
I love Italian food, and I'm good at cooking it too. When I want
Japanese though, I have to go out.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
~Patches of Sunshine on Sunday Mornings: Where else would I curl up
and be lazy?
~My Family: I honestly don't think I would've been as successful as
I have been without the most supportive family I have ever
encountered. I know how lucky I am.
~My Friends: These at least I am allowed some pride for choosing
well. I chose so, so well.
~Self-Control: I don't know how some people manage to survive this
world while letting external forces dictate their emotions and
thoughts and actions. I don't fight the flow, but I go with it
because I choose to, not because I've been swept away.
~My Own Body: I wouldn't be nearly as comfortable in any other. I
know this one's strengths and weaknesses and dimensions exactly. I
know how to make it do whatever I need it to.
~Puzzles, in Any Form: Sudoku, chess, organic chemistry reaction
mechanisms, anything to occupy the empty spaces between thoughts
and keep me sane.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
With friends, but not at a party. Possibly watching a movie,
possibly playing a game, possibly just talking. Not all that
interesting, but it's what makes me happy after a long week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a D-20, an icosahedron. The only sides you see here are the
ones I let the general public see. The strong, independent,
sophisticated ones. I have others. If I decide I like you, you may
get to see the sides that like water balloon fights or
fingerpainting or getting hopelessly sleep deprived and laughing at
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... you read all of that writing up there. Seriously. I am rather
embarrassed with how much there is.
I feel like I just took up the entire conversation. You can fix
that by talking at me lots. Please do.
