Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I enjoy spending time outdoors, especially on the beautiful spring
and fall days we have around here. I particularly love when the
leaves are first coming out in the spring, and when they are just
starting to change color.
I was in 4H my whole life and I try my hardest to live by their
motto: "to make the best better." Nothing is ever perfect, but it
can usually be improved, and I'm out to do that. When I put my mind
to something, I work hard at it until it's done.
Once I'm comfortable in a situation I become very gregarious. I
love to laugh and to make others laugh. I'm often called silly or
weird, but if it made you crack a smile, I'm happy.
Other things that make me happy include sunny days, quality time
with my friends, an especially good Wait Wait Don't Tell Me
Episode...and puppies. I love puppies. And older dogs. I don't
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work political campaigns, in field. I was a field organizer for
President Obama, and I've also worked on the Terry McAuliffe
campaign (Governor of Virginia) and a state senate race in
Virginia. Just wrapped up on a coordinated campaign in central New
York, focusing on a congressional race (NY-24th).
It's an exciting way to live and an incredible way to know the work
I'm doing will truly have an impact.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Quoting Star Wars
Making people laugh
I'm also pretty good at cooking (I'm not the best but I like it and
I try new recipes pretty often).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think my height, since I am so short. Maybe my laugh, or my
voice, they're both pretty distinct (or so I've been told).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love several books by Jane Austen, "Of Mice and Men", and the
Harry Potter series (Fred, George, and Snape are my favorite
characters). Two of my favorite books from when I was younger are
"A Wrinkle In Time" and "The Giver".
Favorite movies of all time: The original Star Wars trilogy. It's
quite quotable. Try me.
I also really like Ocean's 11, and some older movies too, like The
African Queen. Not sure if it counts as a movie but I love Dr.
Horrible. My guilty pleasure movie is Sweet Home Alabama.
LOST was amazing. Firefly could have been so incredible if it were
given the chance. The current shows I watch include Saturday Night
Live, Brooklyn 99, and Castle. I catch Jon Stewart, Stephen
Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, and Seth Meyers when I can. I'm working on
catching up on It's Always Sunny, and Parks and Rec. Of course, I
think Seinfeld eps are pretty classic.
My first car was named Logan, for Wolverine in X-Men. He was a big,
strong car out to protect me. My current car is named Neil Linus.
Neil for Neil Patrick Harris and Linus for Ben Linus of LOST. Neil
Linus because he is cool, above the fray, and cute but able to jump
in when needed. (He's a Rav4.) (Yes, I just referred to my car as a
I tend to really like Italian, Greek/Mediterranean, and Indian. And
who doesn't love pizza and ice cream? I also love quesadillas.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I really want to be a wise-ass and list air, water, nutrients,
vitamins, sleep, and warmth.
But okay, I'll go past "basic survival" to things I really would
hate to not have.
1. My friends, and my family.
2. The ways I connect to my friends. Meaning communication
channels, such as the my computer, the internet
(gchat/facebook/etc) and my cell phone.
4. My glasses. Without them, I couldn't see the world.
5. The ability to read/understand. The world would be such a boring
place if you couldn't read/understand/experience new ideas and
6. Running water/electricity/other technology that we tend to take
for granted, but that many go without.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Politics/policy. Even though our country has a pretty messed up
system, it's still way better than not having a democracy at
Lots of other things too--ask me. :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working. Or, hanging out at home, catching up on Thursday night's
tv online, or else spending casual time with my friends/family.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I hate status symbols...but I love my mac.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
anything about me seems interesting to you, or you think we would
get along. I'm pretty shy and have a hard time being the first one
to write a message...so be brave for both of us. :)
