What I’m doing with my life
I work in the Bronx as a clinical study coordinator in mostly
HIV-related research. Basically, I get to live out my latent doctor
fantasies while working with the most fantastic assortment of
women. I read a pretty mean Gram stain.
Right now I'm enjoying a steady paycheck and facing up to the fact
that I want to be a nurse practitioner. For now, I split my free
time evenly between adventuring in the city and its outskirts and
frittering away my youth on the Internet and with Netflix.
I’m really good at
Finding humor in things, remembering actors' names, making hideous
faces, trying new things, having bizarre dreams and remembering
them, looking on the bright side, wasting time on the internet,
baking cupcakes, finishing that if you're not gonna eat it
The first things people usually notice about me
The only time someone told me their first impression of me was when
a friend from college told me he thought I'd be "like a bad version
of Queen Latifah." I took it as a compliment because there's no way
any version of Queen Latifah could be bad.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV: Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock, Battlestar Galactica, Firefly,
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Game of Thrones, It's Always Sunny,
Arrested Development, Bob's Burgers, New Girl, Swamp People, Summer
Heights High, Happy Endings, The IT Crowd, Pretty Little
Books: Oof, so many. I have a towering pile of to-be-read books
next to my bed and an even more terrifying pile in my living room
of read ones.
Movies: Can I just give you my Netflix password?
Music: ALL OF IT. Except Maroon 5. I'm sorry, "Payphone" is a
disaster. Edit: actually "One More Night" is pretty great.
Food: Every cuisine. I am a garbage disposal. Some all-stars
though: sopes, sushi, goat cheese, cranberries, barbecue, cherry
Jolly Ranchers, coconut curry. The only food items I genuinely
don't like are horseradish and mango pickle.
The six things I could never do without
LOLing, musics, water to jump in (and of course, like, to drink),
my family, balsamic vinegar, and the oxford serial comma
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how I really need to go to the post office.
On a typical Friday night I am
either with my friends trying/drinking something new, or at home on
Tumblr and debating how much sushi is too much sushi to order.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Once when I was 7 my mom dropped me off at the wrong birthday
