Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love making people laugh. This often comes out through a nice
balance of puns, and song quotes.
The mere thought of wandering around Philly with friends or by
myself makes me giddy. I will read things upside down completely
accidentally. I buy more bedding than most people I know and most
of it is grey/gray -- I don't know which is correct!
I'm not in the same shape I used to be in but I just bought myself
a bicycle to ride to the train everyday and it's getting me feeling
more motivated to take additional positive steps for myself. Update
on that bike... sadly my lovely Trek was stolen just days after
purchase and now I have to buy a new one. I did get to try out my
credit card's purchase protection for the first time though... it
works... so I guess not all advertising is hyperbole.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am using ellipsis and periods together.... and having autocorrect
failures make me sound like I'm staunchly in favor of cocoa puffs.
(Points to you if you know where I snagged that gem!)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My job, helping people get through tough stuff, being a caring
friend/girlfriend, and probably most amusingly inadvertently buying
everything in the same color-- I'm looking at you teal!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably that I am easily startled when I'm not facing someone
walking up to me and sometimes even when I'm looking in that
I'm not afraid or unobservant but I'm usually deep in my own
thoughts every single time this happens.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1- A journal
2- A good pen
3- water (I drink a lot of water)
4- adequate vision correction (glasses or contacts)
5- The Internet-- I met my last boyfriend here-- he was a French
model. Plus, they can't put anything on The Internet that isn't
6- ????? TBD
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
"Wait, was that a real song lyric or do I just think it's
"How am I going to word that?"
"Why do I have a phone voice with gas station attendants?"
"How am I going to get ahold of that video of me singing T-Swift on
NYE and destroy it before it makes its way onto the
"Why do I still capitalize Internet?"
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Last Friday a good friend and I sat down with a bottle of wine, a
slice of pie, a coloring book, and 72 colored pencils. Three and a
half hours later we were almost done half of a page. If you liked
to color when you were young you need check out this book:
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I get off the train at the end of the day, if I am the first
person to get through the turnstiles and out the door I feel like I
won a secret race and that the rest of my evening will be AWESOME.
