Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a newly-licensed attorney practicing tax law (No, I won't give
you free legal advice).
I love music. See my interests below. I'll never turn down a chance
to see a live show.
I adore theatre and haven't had my performance fix since college;
as a result, I sing along to the radio far too loudly and have been
known to grab a hairbrush and belt now and again (I promise I won't
do it in public). I went to college in Chicago and get back to that
lovely city as often as I can (SpiritAir is my new best friend). I
studied political science, theatre, and chemistry as an
undergraduate and, upon graduation, promptly forgot everything I
ever learned in a lab setting. Oops.
I love good grammar and appropriate punctuation. I could do
crossword puzzles for hours-- I'm not great at the New York Times
puzzles, but I'm working on it.
I'm a girlie girl, but I'm grounded. I read my InStyle Magazine and
Minnesota Bench & Bar, I go to the mall and the bookstore, and
my favorite websites are Perez Hilton and The Guardian. I'd rather
watch The History Channel than MTV, but I'm a sucker for Top Chef
and Project Runway.
I am very liberal and my political beliefs are deeply-rooted. I put
my theatre training to good use volunteering at phone banks for the
2010 and 2012 elections. Wanna toughen your skin? Work a DFL phone
bank in one of Minnesota's wealthiest suburbs. Incidentally, I now
have a newfound appreciation for quirky voicemail greetings.
Despite being a girlie girl, I have an eternal love for NFL
football. I watch the combine on the NFL network and get draft
updates on my phone. I'm a die-hard Colts fan and it broke my heart
when Peyton left, but I still adore him and start him almost every
Sunday in one of my fantasy leagues. As a direct result of my 5
years in Chicago, I hate the Bears with a fiery passion. Because
there is nothing that will make one hate Chicago sports more than
living in Chicago.
Someday, I hope to be a successful attorney, pay off my student
loans, and enjoy season tickets to the Guthrie Theatre.
I am also a fan of emoticons. It was difficult to abstain from
using them until now. :)

coffee, and my afternoon coffee. (side note: I took "things"
literally and, as such, did not include friends, family, pets, etc.
Rest assured, those would have been included if the prompt were

whether my parents, who have been married 30 years, would have
picked each other based on their online dating site profiles. Okay,
"a lot of time" was an overstatement, but it has crossed my mind.
And my guess is no.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
