Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My friends and I hang out quite a bit. I live in Wallingford, but
typically I can be found somewhere in New Haven. Cask Republic is
as favorite as well as Barcelona, Kelly's, Bar, sometimes Karaoke
Hero's, Mamoun's, and a ton of other places that I can't think of
right now. We're big fans of game nights, movie nights, as well as
jumping in to a car to drive to Sleepy Hollow, just to see what it
On a personal level, when not with friends I can be found on my
couch/ in the bed, reading. If you couldn't tell from the name I'm
a librarian... sort of, and books are kind of a big deal to me.
I've driven to South Carolina to go to a book convention and I'm
not ashamed to admit it, books are a pretty big part of my life.
I'm on this thing... again, because I'm not entirely sure how to
meet real people. Meeting people in college is one thing, and
meeting them at work is also pretty easy, but I work with old
married people, so we don't have much in common outside of
complaining about library patrons, soooooo, here I am. It also
doesn't help that I suck at small talk. Text (and OKC messages)
such as "hey what's up" and "how was your weekend" don't really do
it for me.
I'm not sure if I'm looking for a relationship but I think I am. I
haven't had too many of them, I've always been more of the guys
best friend type, I'm called for a night of pizza and beer, not to
go on a date, *shrug*. I'm so use to the friendship thing that
sometimes relationships can feel weird and I think I unconsciously
mess them up. I think the only way I'll feel comfortable is to date
someone who feels like a close friend. Someone who I feel
comfortable with when I look a mess in the morning, or I'm in a
cranky mood and just want to bitch. Yup that's probably the way
it'll have to go. I think I made it sound complicated but I just
want to feel comfortable being 100% me and I haven't been able to
find that with someone that I don't consider a close friend *sigh*.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a Children and Teen Librarian. It a lot harder than people
think, I kind of don't like when people are like "you need a degree
for that? Why? You don't do anything."
I spend all day with kids anywhere from newborns to seventeen. I
love what I do, there's not much more to say than that.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading, writing, and karaoke, talking, taboo (the game)!!!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm kind of tall for a girl, and I kind of talk a lot. And people
tell me that I'm animated, I think that means I just move a lot.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If grad school will ever end.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It use to be reading, watching TV, and drinking a beer on my couch,
but my friends got tired of that so typically we're at a bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a jacket from Free! Iwatobi Swim Club, but most of you have
no idea what that is so it's cool.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I said anything remotely interesting, or if you're capable of
beginning a conversation with something other than, "hey", "hi",
"what's up?" or "How's your day." NO offense to those people but
typically I can't think of anything relevant to say.
