My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love fun. That said, I work too hard and occasionally need a reminder to have some.

Born and raised in east Queens. New York is like a big sister to me; I admire her, but sometimes I get sick of her and wish she'd just shut up. I love discovering new places near and far. I'm a compulsive listmaker who's actually pretty great at living in the now. No one can get enough of my dance moves — take me to a block party and I will make friends.

I'm really into warm people. Nothing makes me happier than eating a real meal with a big group of hilarious, passionate, easygoing friends who just want to experience the full breadth of what life has to offer.

I've done things this year I didn't know I could do (e.g. finished a manuscript, traveled solo, snuck into a decommissioned naval base)... and there's much, much more to come, preferably sooner than later.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a copywriter at an ad agency. On my own time, I write edgy short fiction about insufferable people. I love photography, thrifting, theater, comedy, yoga, knitting, decorating, travel and Duolingo.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Close reading, planning vacations

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Apart from physiological needs and human relationships:

1) My laptop, Holly
2) My iPhone, Thom
3) My financial independence
4) My picture window necklace
5) My glasses
6) My domain name
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How could I have saved Amy Winehouse?
Will they notice if I check my phone?
What's something I have not yet done — and can I do it today?
Am I subverting a trope or just becoming one?
Do I need real shoes for this?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
going somewhere new with old friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm looking for something more serious, though I'm fine with meeting lots of people until something truly works.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to talk to someone on your wavelength and maybe try one of those cocktails that look like hot fudge sundaes.

Edit: My friend was lamenting how dating in NYC can lose its fun aspect very quickly, since there are so many people and so few of them are eligibly sane. I suggested that she make a list of fun things to do with or without a companion. That way, every date will be fun no matter what. Probably.

I've decided to take my own advice. Feel free to share your list with me!

Time-sensitive:
- be christmassy at Rolf’s
- go ice skating in Bryant Park (I have knee pads!)
- see “It’s a Wonderful Life” at IFC

Rolling:
- finally go to Ippudu
- finally go to SPiN
- finally go to that Portuguese restaurant on Spring Street
- UCB
- Nitehawk
- Advise each other on all of the cool vacations we could take separately
- Brooklyn Night Bazaar
- Union Pool
- The Original Dutch Street Style Memory Game vol. 3
- Hiking meetup (via meetups.com)
