Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm pretty sure nothing exists except for the present moment. It's
very easy to get caught up in things... Mindfulness is important.
Balance and trust. I am not perfect at this. But I am trying.
I am from Arizona. I miss the desert. There is something magical
about it. I think it's the quiet. But it's probably way more than
that. New York is magical too...and unending.
I like to run. A lot. The marathon is my favorite distance. Running
makes me happy. it's a moving meditation. For sure.
I teach children on the autistic spectrum. Right now I have a 5th
grade class. It feels like exactly what I'm supposed to be doing.
Plus they tell me cool things. Like facts about blue-footed boobies
or the drummer of Living Colour.
I played basketball at a small school in college. I may or may not
have a bad tattoo related to that.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
running, teaching, looking for dancefloors, creating things,
pulling myself apart, seeing what is human...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
cursive, making birds out of putty, theory of mind, sleeping in,
really wanting to go to the movies but never actually going,
3-pointers, anticipating when the bike lane turns into the turn
lane (who designed this!), friendship, long runs, coffee (I don't
really know what it means to be good at coffee, but I imagine I'm
close). Holding two contradicting ideas at once, not attaching to
one linear identity...Unless I just did, then I apologize.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can see the best in the worst. And my grill.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The coolest movies ever.
The best music ever.
books are rad. I read them. Klosterman, Vonnegut, Eggers, Tolle,
Saunderson, Robbins, Hemingway...there's still a lot to go.
I eat healthy. It feels better.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
"This ashtray, the paddle game, the remote control and the lamp.
That's all I need..... And this chair..."
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Is the Universe working...?
Compassion. How to be a better person. This plagues me at times.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
