My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a New Yorker, but don't hold that against me - I don't sound at all like a character from a Scorsese film. After several years in Brooklyn (and bopping around other various locations), I packed up all my belongings and moved to bonnie Scotland to complete a postgraduate degree, and maybe even find a job and build a life afterward. This is my first time in the UK, and would love someone to adventure with!

A few of my favorite things: Bookstores, coffee shops, spicy food, history lessons. Tattoos, burlesque shows, academic talks, social justice initiatives. Folk music, feminist critiques, political theory, conversations that carry on into the wee hours of the morning. I live to travel, travel, travel - planes, trains, and the great American (European?) road trip. I am equally as enamored with the city and the country, and can do as well navigating a foreign transit system as I can the hiking trails.

I make every effort to live my life with kindness, compassion, and a good sense of humor, and like to surround myself with people who do the same.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Moving across the world.

I'm pursuing a Master's in International Affairs/Politics. Prior to my move I was working in policy development at an NGO.

Update: I bought a fiddle at the World's Largest Garage Sale and am going to try to play it. So you can add that to what I'm doing with my life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Empathy, accents (including foreign and domestic), batting cleanup, and I do some pretty mean Peggy Lee/Lana Del Rey/Nicki Minaj karaoke - take your pick.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
"Is that your natural hair?" (It's ridiculously curly)

My eyes are green and orange. Yes, orange.

Although unrelated to appearance, the first reaction people have to meeting me is to sing, "Gloria! G-L-O-R-I-A! Gloria!" I'd prefer you didn't, but if you're charming, I suppose you can get away with it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The Bell Jar, Harry Potter, A Separate Peace, Hannah Arendt, Just Kids, Song of Ice and Fire, Edna St. Vincent Millay.

10 Things I Hate About You is my favorite movie - judge away. Requiem For a Dream, All I Wanna Do (Strike!), Trainspotting, SLC Punk, Life is Beautiful, Y Tu Mama Tambien, Swing Kids, Boondock Saints, What Dreams May Come, Boys Don't Cry. All the feels.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Frasier, Orange is the New Black, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, West Wing, Peaky Blinders.

The Avett Brothers, the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, The Fratellis, Concrete Blonde, Ryan Adams, Langhorne Slim.

Spicy (mostly vegetarian) food - Indian, Mexican, Turkish, Ethiopian, Thai. MmmMmmm.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Passport - lost it once just before a trip. Never again.
2. A good book to read while commuting (I just finished "You Deserve Nothing." Currently reading "Traveling with Pomegranates")
3. Rainy days (I imagine I'll have enough of those in Scotland)
4. A fulfilling job/academic program - I love to work
5. A bathtub (I'm living without one now and am not happy about it)
6. Skype - I stay close to my family, no matter where in the world I call home.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Profound things like ethics, gender, indigenous cultures, conscience/iousness, educational/social reform, global politics.

Not so profound things like what to eat, how many times I can hit the snooze button without being late, what I'm going to do when I someday win the lottery (I don't play the lottery).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't have a typical Friday night in Edinburgh, yet. I'm assuming it will eventually involve exploring, either around the city, Scotland, or greater Europe. Adventure with me?

Edit: Graduate school is really hard. I've been spending Friday nights thus far in the reading room, pouring over research. I would love an excuse not to do this every Friday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm not a very private person.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm a very dedicated feminist and queer ally, and it's important to me that whoever I date be open minded, and generally accepting. Also, while its important that anyone I date be attracted to larger bodies (because I have one), I am not a fetish, so please DON'T contact me if that's your thing. It's cool, it's just not my thing. If you're not attracted to larger bodies, that's cool too. New friends are awesome and totally welcome, please just make it clear if you don't have romantic intent. Transparency for all, yeah?

Or, if you can teach me how to play the fiddle.
