Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Since brevity is the soul of wit, I will be brief.
Here's a madlib for people struggling with their
I (verb) at writing these (plural noun), because I (verb) at
(adjective ending in -ing) myself. Oh well, here goes (noun). I
love a (adjective) (noun) and my friends say I'm a (adjective)
(noun), but I'll let you (verb) for yourself. (emoticon).
You can't get to (verb) me by (adjective ending in -ing) this,
because everyone (verb). So just (verb) me and we can get to (verb)
each other that way!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am an understimulated bookstore employee with too many hobbies
and too little time.
I’m not content with the daily grind of retail work. Obviously,
making nine dollars an hour for the rest of my life is pretty
unappealing. To that end, I've started working towards earning my
BS in Chemistry.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Everything. I’m not a perfectionist, and I’m not a competitive
person, but I do believe in excellence. If you are going to take
the time to do something, you should do it right, and you should do
That being said, I am currently pursuing excellence in writing,
drawing, painting, cooking, and being a better adult.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I would be far better suited to swinging an axe on some
ancient battlefield, or hunting furs on a frontier river, than to
navigating the complexities of the modern world. Every now and
then, I wish that were the case.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I will read anything I can get my hands on.
My favorite stories will always be crap fantasy, though. The kind
with some Frank Frazetta painting on the cover. One with a
well-oiled and muscular man with a sword, perched on a crumbling
staircase while two scantily clad women clutch his legs and a
dragon whirls overhead. You can blame C.S. Lewis.
Movies: In my favorite movies, somebody usually
has a sword, sometimes it's made out of lasers. I like the ones
with ambiguous morals, where the bad guys sometimes win. I can't
really put a type down here, my tastes are pretty eclectic, from
Terminator 2 to Shakespeare In Love. My favorite
movie is Casablanca.
Shows: I pretty much limit my TV exposure to:
Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and Non-Fiction. There are a couple of notable
animated comedy exceptions to this, but neither of them are
Family Guy. My favorite TV show is Firefly and if
it's not yours, that's probably because you've never seen it.
Music: Again, it's pretty eclectic, and it depends
on what I'm doing while I'm listening to it. Maybe it's something
we can talk about. I like learning about new things.
Food: I love to cook, especially with a partner,
and I like exploring new types of food, but I have a special
fondness for all things Vietnamese.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
--The raw potential in a blank sheet of paper
--The spike of elation that comes with rolling a natural 20 at just
the right moment.
--The view of the Willamette River as MAX rolls over the Steel
--The smell of an old book
--The other side of the pillow.
--The occasional slice of warm, gooey pecan pie, serving as the
delicious bed for a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Brave new worlds and the people that inhabit them.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The only thing worse than working on Friday nights, is having a
typical Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I find Bugs Bunny to be somewhat attractive when he puts on a dress
and pretends to be a girl bunny.
I want to be the girl with the most cake.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're an intelligent, creative type.
You like D&D. You always have time for Star Trek. You often try
to work Archer quotes into everyday conversation.
Or any of the above. I like meeting new people.
