I've been known to watch Top Chef while eating a bowl of fruit loops.
I believe you should treat other people how you want to be treated.
My friends are SUPER important to me.
I love to swim in lakes.
I want to leave out some of my quirks for you to learn about as you get to know me and have a feeling that the things we will like about each other won't be the things we write about on this profile.
being a friend. I do my best to shape my life so that I have time and energy to see my friends and be there for them when they need me.
looking at the positive side of things.
knowing the good places to have brunch and knowing how to strategically order to maximize the opportunity to eat both sweet and savory:) Also, knowing the best bakeries in the area and what they each are especially good at making. I take my duties seriously if anyone ever asks me for a brunch or bakery recommendation.
That I tend to be good at putting people at ease. I care a lot about people and do my best to make people feel comfortable.
Movies: Similar to my affection for non-fiction books, I enjoy documentaries--I think there are so many amazing real life stories to learn about. Some favorite docs include: To Be and To Have, Spellbound, Mad Hot Ballroom, Tyson, Encounters at the End of World. Just watched a great documentary about the band Journey! There is definitely room for non-documentaries too.
Food: I love good ole fashioned comfort food, nothing like a great plate of spaghetti with some garlic bread and a salad. Like most 8-year-olds, I love pizza and ice cream. I love baked goods and good bakeries (as referenced above)! I also love visiting farmers markets and sampling the fresh fruit and vegetables.
Stand-Up: I'm really into stand-up comedy lately-have been to some fun shows in the past couple of years-seen Dave Chapelle, John Mulaney, Seth Meyers, Hannibal Buress. Was supposed to see Tig Notaro but unfortunately that was cancelled. Seeing Demetri Martin soon. Would love to see Bill Burr and Louis CK. Always looking for new recommendations on great comedians!
TV Series: I tend to stick to comedies or dramas that aren't too dark or serious. I know that in the last several years there have been so many spectacular dramatic series but I tend to avoid them because unfortunately I just tend to find them too upsetting. Current and past favorite shows include: How I Met Your Mother, Gilmore Girls, New Girl, Mindy Project, Project Runway, Girls, Veronica Mars, West Wing, Parks and Recreation.
