My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a passionate, quirky, kind, intellectual, literary, shy-until-you-get-to-know-me but energetic-once-I-feel-comfortable-with-you, music-loving, coffee-drinking girl newly making the Bay Area her home.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I teach teenagers to read and write (and think and analyze...and like books...and think about life...)
In my free time I'm an avid explorer and traveler (whenever I can, although lately I'm becoming more of a homebody), and I practice what I preach: I love reading and am currently running out of bookshelf space.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Well, I'm pretty good at relocating, as I've lived in St. Louis, New York, D.C., Indianapolis, Minneapolis, and now here!
Not to brag, but I am a good singer. I like to belt one out every now and again, although I don't sing regularly anymore-- well, that is, outside of the car and the shower.
I have excellent grammar, and I know all of the words to Meatloaf's "Paradise By the Dashboard Light."
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm pretty smiley, I usually have a book or two in my purse, and I enjoy wearing vintage (or at least vintage-style) clothing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books-- Tess of the D'Urbervilles, Jane Eyre, The Sun Also Rises, Let the Great World Spin, Special Topics in Calamity Physics, Possession, Brideshead Revisited
Movies-- Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Royal Tenenbaums, An Education, The Apartment, Midnight in Paris, The Graduate, Once, Amelie
Music-- I'm an avid listener of NPR pop culture/music podcasts, so I will listen to pretty much anything they recommend. Special favorites include Stars, A Fine Frenzy, Damien Rice, Dean & Britta, Simon & Garfunkel, The Magnetic Fields, Joni Mitchell, The Civil Wars, Rilo Kiley...and so on. I also love jazz, French ye-ye music, and rockabilly/swing.
Shows-- I take guilty pleasure in The Voice, So You Think You Can Dance, and Top Chef. I also think Parks and Rec is genius.
Food-- I love trying new types of food, so I guess I'll list what I could do without: cheeseburgers, chili, bacon, and Mexican food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) my dog, Pip
2) my family
3) books
4) cultural experiences/activity
5) caffeine
6) intellectual curiosity combined with zest for life (along with time alone to think and process...I'm most definitely an introvert, so my decompression time is key)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
happiness; why movie stars from the 1950s talked with British accents; where I want to travel next; gender studies and social justice; how to become a better teacher/person.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Often decompressing after a long week with a glass of wine and a movie with the dog. Or, if I've really got my act together, exploring this fine city or getting together one-on-one with a friend.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've never seen the Star Wars films...and while I'm sure I will someday, I'm okay with that for now.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you're interested in getting together for coffee; you know that "supposably" is not a word; you don't mind movies in black and white; you like exploring; you're looking for a sassy girl with equal amounts of 1920s, 1950s, and 1990s in her; you share my hatred of mean people.
