Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I would classify myself as a staunch jock-nerd hybrid (which,
obviously, made me SUPER popular in high school...not at all). I
studied biology as an undergrad, and now am trying my hand at
marine bio. I played soccer in college, and still play as much as
possible (and may or may not have four pairs of soccer shoes within
view right now). I enjoy most athletic activities, which is why the
back of my car currently resembles an extremely disorganized
sporting goods store. I'm laid back most of the time, but I
definitely have a competitive side, and can be intense about some
things. I tend to surround myself with people who share my level of
intellectualism and physical activity. Above all else, I like to be
around people who make me laugh, and there is little I enjoy more
than good banter. I like being outdoors and traveling (probably
because my parents dragged me to so many national parks as a
child), and I've been to quite a few cool places so far. I am
always ready to explore new places and try new things, and there
are so many more countries I want to visit! I am close with my
family, especially my younger sister, and we spend a lot of time
being ridiculous together. I live in Durham, NH right now, but I
spend most weekends in Boston, and I am looking for someone who
wants to hang out, whether we are doing something active, or just
people watching and enjoying a good beer.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I am working on a master's degree in Zoology at UNH. My
lab is focused on aquaculture, and has two facilities where we are
raising a bunch of different fish species, so I spend many of my
days trying not to kill the fish (with varied success). I just
started my own research, which involves attempting to keep 7,200
larval flounder happy (they are BEYOND high maintenance). After I
finish my degree, who knows! Most likely some amount of wandering
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
People have told me I would have a decent chance at winning
Survivor...I'm not sure whether or not that's a compliment... I
also like creative writing, which is somewhat unusual for a
biologist, but I am hoping to somehow merge the two.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I suppose my sarcasm and dry sense of humor can be a bit disarming
at first (or so I've been told), but I like to keep people on their
toes! Also, I don't take myself too seriously, and I appreciate the
humor in everyday life...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I may have a slight addiction to used books, and I will read almost
anything you put in front of me but a few favorites: Winterdance,
Memoirs of a Geisha, The Red Tent, Jurassic Park, Into Thin Air,
Harry Potter (I grew up with those crazy kids!)
30 Rock, Community, Cougar Town, Gilmore Girls, Modern Family,
Downton Abbey, How I Met Your Mother
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
OK, for the sake of making things a little more interesting, I am
going to list my six most recent google searches:
1.) ion selective electrode for measuring ammonia
2.) percentage of Americans who attend a four year college
3.) barbed t-connector
4.) college hockey rankings
5.) Gloucester Twin Lights Half Marathon
6.) drinking beer with a chest cold
Huh...OK, kind of a stream of consciousness thing, I guess...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what the heck I am actually going to do with my life...this being
in your twenties thing can be confusing!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
doing any number of things including lying on the couch watching
TV, in a bar socializing, out dancing with friends, hanging out
with family, working out at the gym or wandering (OK, not so much
the last one).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am a bit of a grammar snob...I can't help it! It's just the way
my brain works! Also, I definitely have a competitive streak that I
mostly keep in check, but every now and then it emerges (I may have
been banned from family board game night a couple years back...)
