My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Self-summarization... never easy. What to say, what to say? I'm equal parts serious and light-hearted. I love opera, dogs, and the Red Sox. I enjoy all the culture vulture stuff (art museums, world travel, classical music), but at the same time, I believe that there's nothing better than a spring evening at the ballpark with a hot dog and a beer. More than anything else, I am interested in learning and discovering new things about the world, history, society, others, and myself, and I enjoy being around people who share that curiosity. In terms of hobbies, I practice yoga, love classical music and most things on TV, cooking, running, and enjoy watching, if not playing, sports. I used to live in London and as a result am a serious Anglophile.

I am both cheerful and snarky, opinionated, and inquisitive.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm in my fourth year of a doctoral program, working towards my degree in art history. I'm specializing in the Italian Renaissance, so even if you're not a art buff, you've almost certainly heard of the people I'm studying (hint, they're mostly the Ninja Turtles.) As a result of my studies, I'm a bit of an Italophile, which, in combination with my huge affection for all things British, makes for a weird combination.

I'm also a supervising RA on campus, which is equal parts bizarre, frustrating, and heartwarming.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
gaining the respect of dogs, thinking critically, enjoying good company, learning new things, packing a suitcase, making executive decisions, laughing a wee bit too loudly, cooking (more or less), getting really excited about something and then needing a nap to recover, seeing the best in others
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm usually the person making a joke (sometimes at the wrong time) in any given group, so that's the role I seem to be playing at the moment. Physically, they probably notice my curly hair and that I'm a bit short. Hopefully people also notice that while I'm usually making that joke, I can also be quite serious about certain things.

One thing that people do not notice about me right away is my age; since I live among college undergraduates, people are constantly assuming that I'm their age.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. dogs (although I currently do without, and it's a bit painful)
2. intellectual stimulation
3. travel
4. the right music for the right time
5. occasional silence
6. good, familiar, non-judgemental friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how to organize my life, what's for lunch, the weather, how to improve myself on a personal level, whether I am making any sense to my students, and my affection for Boston.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
maybe going to the opera or orchestra, maybe going out to a bar with my friends, maybe at a yoga class, maybe just watching TV
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am terrified of mummies. Absolutely scared to death.
