I'm from a relatively small town in the Poconos region of Pennsylvania and I went to the main state university in PA (Penn State). I moved to NYC for graduate school and I'm enjoying it. It's really cool to be able to go to a new bar or restaurant every weekend.
I would say I'm looking for some one to have some fun with and make the city feel a little smaller.
I'd like to stay in the city for around the next five years and then try to get a good job in a smaller town. But you know, as they say, man plans God laughs.
Also tennis and basketball. I love to play sports with small groups of friends as long as it doesn't get crazy competitive.
In terms of physical appearance the first thing people notice is probably my glasses and my hair.
I don't read as much as I would like to so my books list is pretty embarrassing but I really liked 1984 and I've been listening to a bunch of crime solving books by John Sandford on the subway starring a interesting cop named Virgil Flowers.
In terms of movies i really like comedies and some sappy love stories. Casablanca, Anchorman, Airplane, Sleepless in Seattle, 500 Days of Summer, and Gattaca are some of my favorites than I can think of off the top of my head.
Music has always kind of been in phases for me but some bands I've always liked are Counting Crows, Jack's Mannequin, Bon Iver, Rancid, and the Rolling Stones.
Can't get enough Indian food since I moved to NYC. Pizza has to be my overall favorite food though.
coffee shops and diners
I really like politics so often I will be thinking about different types of policy solutions (gripping stuff, I know).
On a lighter note, I love comedy and enjoy thinking about why things are funny. I really like standup comedy (Louis CK and Jim Gaffigan are my favorite) and some times I will try to think up jokes in my head. My friend recently tried out one of my jokes on stage and it got some laughs I was pretty happy about that!
Also, I think space is fascinating.
I've also been really wanting to get more into movies so I would totally be down to stay in and watch a movie from time to time.
I really like smooth jazz and also country music.
I really like movies with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks like Sleepless in Seattle and You've Got Mail.
I thought Temple University was a Jewish school until I turned 18.
I used to carry around a small bottle of axe deodorant when I was in high school and spray it on myself whenever I was paranoid that I smelled bad.
and also I hate clothing hangers.
