Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
People are always surprised by how nerdy I am, but my walls are
covered with Firefly and Harry Potter. As I sit here writing this,
I'm wearing a Doctor Who sweatshirt. I like to think my nerdiness
Joss Whedon is my god, but J.K. Rowling is my goddess. If those two
kids ever appeared before me, I would probably pass out (and later
beat the crap out of myself for the missed oppotunity).
In "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?" Mindy Kaling writes that
the beautiful yet clumsy girl of romantic comedies doesn't really
exist, and I kind of resented that. I am unnaturally and
dramatically clumsy, and I would like to think that I'm also quite
pretty (she said humbly).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am currently working for a company that produces shows on
Broadway and creates and sells merchandise for all kinds of things.
I'm exploring many options for my near future, such as foreign
service. Far in the future, I'll run for president or open a foster
home maybe. We'll see.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Dividing even numbers by two?
Actually, I'm great at laughing and making other people laugh. I'm
also pretty good at problem-solving. At least, I've managed to
survive this long anyway.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My spunk, I think. Though I've never asked.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Most importantly: Harry Potter and anything Joss Whedon. Also, I've
been trying to read a lot of Neil Gaiman, because I love him. I'm
trying to branch out. Every time I see a bookstore, I want to buy
all of the books, because I feel like there's just so much more to
TV shows I watch regularly: Walking Dead (because zombies!), Game
of Thrones, The Mindy Project, Amy Schumer, New Girl, Orphan Black,
You're the Worst, and a whole bunch of guilty pleasures on
Grooveshark (may it rest in peace) used to describe my taste in
music as Indie pop or Indie rock, mostly. Also, Singer/Songwriter,
but I was unaware that was a genre.
I love Disney and Pixar films, Hard Candy, The Departed, The
Descent, Unbreakable, Junebug, Almost Famous, The Holy Grail, Pitch
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Harry Potter
2. Firefly (And something with which to view it)
3. Peanut Butter Cups
4. Sunlight (Not in a tanning kind of way, but in a big, light,
open spaces kind of way)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Besides the obvious things, I guess I spend a lot of time thinking
about people -- human nature, the origins of morality, the extent
of suffering and cruelty and potential for kindness.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't have a typical Friday night. Most of them are different.
One Friday I went to see a show at Brooklyn Bowl (my first time
there), and someone tried to pass me cocaine under the bathroom
stall. I declined.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've always wanted a miniature horse and one of those lightweight,
two-wheeled carriages, the name for which eludes me at the moment,
for all of my day to day travel.
