Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
If you're not a fan of building forts on the weekend, laughing
until breathing becomes an issue, or eating ice cream for breakfast
once in a while, then you should stop reading. However, if you're a
fan of all the above, or at least not totally repulsed, nice to
meet you :)
Born in Ukraine (technically, the USSR, but are ya really gonna
call me out on that?), moved to New England, grew up with fantastic
friends, really active and involved from everything to Scrabble
Club to tennis and lots of other random things. Went to Boston
University, lived in Sydney, and just an overall, really lucky
life. My experiences have made me grounded, while also so excited
about my future - love spontaneous adventures, traveling, and
people who challenge me.
People fascinate me, so give it a shot. I'll find something great
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Dual masters program in child and family social work, while working
at a community agency with young adults who are working on getting
their GEDs. As a result, my basketball game has SERIOUSLY improved.
Also, creating social policy to combat gender violence in NYC.

laughing at myself, eating home-made food that others make,
unknowingly befriending notorious Australian surf gangs on a rainy
pub day, reading, charades, amping everyone up for trivia nights at
pubs/boozy brunches/live shows, hanging out with kids, watching

Most recently: pretending like I can play pool and loving every
minute of it. You just wait, a pool shark in the making.

Oh, about once a week I'm told that the show New Girl is based on
me. You decide if that's good or bad for you.

Big reader. The Little Prince is hands down my favorite, followed
by mostly anything by Bradbury. Tao Te Ching, Curious Incident
Between the Dog and the Night Time, The Man Who Mistook His Wife
for a Hat, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Norweigan Wood - on a
big Marukami kick lately. Always into suggestions :)
Mostly comedies, documentaries, sappy Indie films that make you
appreciate life and want to become a hipster, pick up a guitar, and
run away with your soulmate. Chasing Amy is probably the movie I
could watch over and over again.
I can appreciate any music when the artists are enjoying
themselves... Some good old blue grass, funky soul, Latin, or
anything that makes me feel good inside, that's the best. I do love
me some offensive rap though, especially while pulling all-nighters

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
why Friends had to end, my goals, how to ensure that happiness of
the ones I love, how New York dogs have a particular prance, where
the next place I can travel to is, why I day dream so much.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
eating, drinking, talking, breathing, dancing, laughing. Sometimes,
I do all of these things simultaneously. Seriously, try me.
