My self-summary
Very outgoing, vivacious, and spirited woman that just wants to make sure she's having a positive mark on the world.

Have been told I'm intimidating. I hope that's not the case. (Good career, smart, outgoing, and all around kick ass isn't intimidating to me! That's what I want in a partner so am bringing the same.)
What I’m doing with my life
I always try to ensure im living life to the fullest. Living in NYC means seeing your friend's mom perform In Carmen at the Metropolitan Opera or getting a book signed by Economist Joseph Stiglitz at a fundraiser. I live for the concentration of talent, passion, and hard work in this town. Which brings me to...

My job(s): I work in local politics here in NYC. I also teach a basic economics course to construction worker aprentices at a labor school. I hold very Progressive values and am very passionate about making the world a better place. I tutor a lot now as well - but I used to sing in a choir, play ultimate frisbee and kickball, and now I knit, I sometimes watch a little too much tv, and I esp. enjoy meeting new people and connecting them with others.

I also really love spinning, yoga, and most importantly quality time with friends and family. Life is all about balance!

Finally - I strongly believe in kindness and helping others. What nice thing did you do for someone today?
I’m really good at
Making things happen.
Being passionate about public service and saving the world.
Singing, dancing (for a white girl), hosting a party, being interesting.
Conversing - but don't make me do all the work please! Ask questions in return :)
What can I say? People tell me I have that "something special" - whatever that means!
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile.
My sense of humor.
My very outgoing personality.
I have a twin sister...sometimes a bit confusing for folks.
You tell me!

Food: I like and am willing to try pretty much everything so I think it's easier to just explain that dry tasteless food is the bane of my existence.
The six things I could never do without
A book to read or papers to grade while waiting...
Manicures and "corpse pose" in Yoga - two times that I feel really and truely relaxed.
My brain - I think when my mental capacity/faculties start to go then I'll be ready to move on!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Saving the world
Politics and social issues
What I'm having for lunch/dinner :)
How incredibly lucky I am...and how not to take that for granted!
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging with anywhere from 1 - 4 of my awesome roommates, playing ultimate frisbee (warm weather specific) and enjoying my time whether it be at happy hour, a party, or staying in with a glass of wine and a movie.

I'll be honest, lately it's consisted of staying at work and then coming home to knit or go to bed. But I can be persuaded to come out for a good whiskey cocktail!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've been arrested before. It was expunged, so "legally" I can say I've never been arrested. But I have. I'm a badass ;)

You're kind, intelligent, passionate, confident, and funny. You are looking for a true partner in life - someone that pushes and challenges you while bringing out your best. That's certainly what I'm looking for!
