Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a pretty chill, laid back person. I get things done when I need
to, but I don't feel there's always a rush in my life. That's
probably why my hair is always long.
I have funny quirks, like sometimes talking like Ned Flanders or
needing to touch the same surface with the left hand after my right
hand touches it.
If I filled out this self summary any more I'd probably be doing a
disservice to the both of us.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm graduated college a year ago (WWU grad, I love Bham) and got a
pretty cool job as a procurement agent out of it. I've been working
for over a year and I have little complaints. My job allows me to
travel to Japan about twice a year, and that's pretty awesome. I
took 3 years of Japanese in college not expecting much with it but
ended up doing well. When I'm not working (I try not to be a
workaholic), I'm either at home hanging with my cat, catching up on
some shows or out with friends doing something outdoorsy, or
I'm also in the midst of a transition in my life, but so far I've
been doing my best to catch up with friends that I have since lost
contact with over the years.
The project for this year is trying to learn how to play piano. I
did a lot of musical things growing up, but never piano. It's been
a frustrating, but fun adventure thus far. I need a summer activity
(which will probably be hiking), and plan to restart skiing again
in the winter. I planned on joining a baseball league but some
unforeseen circumstances prevented that.
Next year I think I will be in grad school, either at a local
school or doing an online program to get my Master's Degree, since
my company pays for most of it :D
I want to travel the world. Aside from the aforementioned Japan,
I've gone to The Philippines, and England as well (I guess Canada
counts, but...). I love experiencing new cultures. I want to do the
rest of Europe and hit some of the Southeast Asian countries like
Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan, and South Korea as well.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My listening and long term memory skills: I can hear your story and
be able to recall it for years to come.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My blue eyes. I believe they're quite prominent.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Ender's Game, The Harry Potter Saga, Life of Pi, Lord of the
Rings, Cryptonomicon, The Hunger Games. I started Game of Thrones,
and so far it's great (but long).
Movies: Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Ferris Bueller's Day Off,
The Naked Gun (I have an affinity for 80s comedy movies), Rush Hour
2, most superhero movies are pretty great too. Oh, and
Shows: How I Met Your Mother, Grimm, LOST, The Biggest Loser,
Family Guy (note the username), The Simpsons, Nurse Jackie, The
Daily Show & The Colbert Report, The Rachel Maddow Show, Man v.
Music: I listen to nearly anything that isn't country or Justin
Food: I'll eat anything sans mushrooms, and some kinds of seafood.
However, I'll list my favorite types in no particular order: Thai,
Japanese, Italian, Indian, Mexican, burgers, Greek, and Chinese.
However the way to my heart is a delicious home cooked meal.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- My family and friends. They're a great support base to
- My car: it gets me to the places I need to be!
- Baseball season: I love tracking baseball because I'm a stats
nerd... Not really but that's what I like to tell people! I'll
support the Mariners no matter how bad they are.
- Coffee: I'm pretty functionless without it.
- My cat: she's annoying sometimes but she's lovable all the same
and gives me something to go home to.
- My allergy medication: holy crap I would be miserable without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- My future, what I'll be doing in a few years, whether or not I'll
be going to grad school.
- Logistical problems and how small changes could make the world
- Recent news, and how weird some people are.
- Why people think a certain way. I go into meetings and
conversations anticipating how people will react so I can respond
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm either at:
- a friend's place playing cards and games or something
- watching the game
- getting dinner out somewhere nice
- just staying home and having a quiet night
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've seen every Twilight movie. I've hated them all.
