My self-summary
I'm educated, down-to-earth, independent, opinionated, passionate about the things I believe in. I'm also somewhat cynical and my sense of humor is sarcastic and a little off-color -- which I've been told sometimes surprises people. My married friends are always telling me that they don't understand why I'm single -- which I know is a compliment but sometimes just annoys me.

I'm generally comfortable and chatty in most social situations -- although I do get sick of making small talk and quickly long to have close friends around. Politically, I'm pretty far left and I'll admit that I am quick to judge those who don't share my commitment to equality and social justice. One of my favorite things is relaxing with friends and rousing conversation (obviously with a little Republican/Tea Party trash talk) over a good beer (or 4. This place drives me to drink these days).

I grew up in a small town in New England but have definitely become more of a city girl -- I love being able to walk everywhere (and if wherever I'm going is just too damn far, the challenge of finding the best bus/metro route). And despite its occasional annoyances (tourists who can't figure out the escalators, intern season) I do love the bubble that is DC -- brunching, happy hour-ing, overly ambitious politicos, and all the rest of it. As much as I like doing these things alone/with girlfriends, it would be nice to find a non-platonic someone to do them with. :)

A random list of my favorite things: Cape Cod, Tuscany (really any place in Italy), skiing, singing, thunderstorms, farmers' markets, finding the perfect gift/card for someone, good beer, curling up with a good book/movie/crossword puzzle/latest issues of The Economist or Real Simple, laughing uncontrollably, the Red Sox (it's okay if you're a Yankees fan -- just don't wear the hat if you meet my dad). And least favorites: People who grunt at the gym, bud light, being the only single person in a room full of couples, traffic, being late, radical anti-choicers, people who take life (or themselves) too seriously. Oh, and cats. I'm much more of a dog person.
What I’m doing with my life
Social worker by training (but not the therapist kind -- the change the world kind), now I manage a non-profit political organization and I love it. I'm also very involved in a bunch of different organizations, causes, etc. (Trying to work on being able to say no, but I've always been a "joiner.")
I’m really good at
Singing, laughing, drinking, operating a non-profit, voting Democrat, skiing, conversation, jigsaw puzzles. Being the common denominator among friends who end up getting married.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile or my height. (Yes, I'm 5 feet tall. No, I cannot reach the top shelves in my kitchen without a stool.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Catcher in the Rye, The Great Gatsby, The Handmaid's Tale, 1984, Slaughterhouse Five, Life of Pi, The World According to Garp, Heart of Darkness, I Am Charlotte Simmons, Where the Sidewalk Ends.

Movies: Life is Beautiful, America Beauty, Magnolia, To Die For, Fargo, Litttle Miss Sunshine, Old School, The Wizard of Oz, and anything with Adam Sandler (I do appreciate raunchy humor). TV: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Lost, True Blood, Dexter, Parenthood, Homeland, The Wire, The Daily Show.

Food: Italian, Mexican, and Thai are among my favorites, but I love pretty much all food. Food is good. I am not one of those girls who orders salads and I have no problem ordering dessert.

Music: I guess it depends on my mood, but really anything...except really twangy country and really heavy metal.
The six things I could never do without
-The Red Sox
-My reproductive freedom
-Cheese plates (okay, maybe I could do without them, but I wouldn't want to.)

I kind of want to add wine to the list. I think I could probably do without that, too, but life would be so much less fun.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to create a "good to great" organization that will take down the Republican party, how to end sexism/violence against women/racism/classism/homophobia and other simple things, expensive vacations I can't afford, and where all the straight, single, non-douchebag men hang out in this city.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably at happy hour with friends or co-workers, usually at some small, laid-back bar. Happy hour is awesome -- I can catch up with people, have a few drinks, and still be in bed at a reasonable hour. :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I find tattoos incredibly sexy -- especially those usually hidden by clothes or on guys I don't expect to have them.
