Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
i've been dating my significant other more seriously, so we're
mostly taking a break from dating other people. that said, i'll
definitely still respond to interesting messages--something more
than a simple "hi."
i'm sort of the girl next door, if the girl next door is generally
sarcastic, sporadically energetic, and relatively nerdy. My
personality basically vacillates between that of Kim Pine and... i
don't know, a more enthusiastic and adventurous fictional
character. Anne Shirley? TinTin? Who knows.
i seem to be the only "morning person" in my circle of friends. my
co-workers recently expressed surprise that i manage to get up
early enough to cook breakfast most mornings, but guys it only
takes like 5 minutes to cook (vegetarian) sausage and eggs.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
for fun: dreaming up and then procrastinating various arts and
craft projects. currently in the pipeline: paintings inspired by
Welcome to Night Vale.
for sustenance: trying to learn how to cook better, but i fall back
on simple stuff like stir fry and omelets and guacamole a lot. and
for dollars: i'm an editor for a scifi/fantasy news and review
site. i get to read a lot of rad articles and scour the internet
for goofy pictures to go with them.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
whistling, baking muffins, making things that resemble art, getting
the high score in Q*bert, describing onomatopoeic sounds,
referencing things that no one's ever heard of, willfully ending
phrases with prepositions, deciphering IKEA pictographs, inventing
stuff as i go along, maintaining parallel structure.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
brightly colored hair, tiny stature, and/or the ridiculous cartoon
faces i am constantly making.
