My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm Melissa. I'm a cook at a diner waiting to go to (local) culinary school.

I work -a lot-, so I don't have much time to myself. And when I do, I'm reading, catching up on sleep, or texting.

A lot of my time also goes to running. I've been a distance runner for 7 years now. I'm looking forward to my 4th marathon this year!

You can talk to me about almost anything! I'm most interested in issues in gender and sexuality, class, race, and disability; and how they play out in food - especially food trends, fine dining, and culinary traditions/education.

If it matters - I always, always test INTP.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Nothing huge right now! I'm obsessed with perfecting a dessert and an appetizer at work.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I learn quickly, so you only have to tell me things once and I won't forget.

I'm very tough, I have to be, because I work like a horse.

^^^they're not particularly special qualities, and I mostly developed them on the job.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm tall - 5'6", and 5'9" with my favorite heels on.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I admire Anthony Bourdain's writing - one day I hope to be half as funny. Other food writers I love dearly - Amanda Cohen, Scott Haas, Michael Ruhlman, Jonathan Dixon.

I studied Virginia Woolf's novels pretty obsessively when I was doing a research paper in JC (ask me about "Orlando"). But I'm trying to learn more local, post colonial, and Chinese literature, so please enlighten me if you're familiar!

I don't watch much, but I'm following Masters of Sex! Also Legend of Korra, but I've only finished book 2 so I haven't actually seen Korrasami yet.

I listen to everything from Westlife to Ed Sheeran to My Chemical Romance to AWOLNATION. My coworkers only listen to Chinese pop, so I do have a Chinese playlist.

My favorite foods are all herb and spice heavy - lamb briyani, yogurt rice, palak paneer (paneer any way), moussaka, the burrata and basil oil with Turkish bread from Moosehead Bar, falafel and tahini sauce. Also I'm pretty sure my last meal will be Hainanese curry rice - just the curry, just the rice.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Running gear, Kindle, MacBook Air, phone, my favorite black dress(es), coffee.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Queer theory, feminism, local politics, identity, LGBTQ activism in Singapore, education, fat-shaming, eating disorders, disability, allyship, class, race, colonialism, power, gender, narratives of knowledge (related, historiography?), (a)sexuality, sex work, sex positivity, polyamory, sex education.

Also, obvsly, kitchen things all day every day.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working hard. Friday nights are busy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a history with an eating disorder (anorexia). I was fourteen, and had a short relapse when I was eighteen. I've since recovered well.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You'd like to chat/hang out. I'm swamped with work every day and I'm not looking for anything in particular. I just really need more friends.
