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've done things this year I didn't know I could do (e.g. finished

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 speakers
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?
