Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to think I've got a good wit, am compassionate,
well-educated, and interested in sharing ideas about the world in

have to enjoy those things that I choose to do to the fullest.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I like cooking, though I think I'm somewhat easy to please. A good
meal for me doesn't require a whole lot of extravagance or
experimentation. I also like to bake pies, cookies or cakes--it's
