Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Jeff. I am a a very nerdy, mostly generous, usually
resourceful, sometimes quiet, other-times
somewhat-but-not-hopelessly-so socially awkward penguin who likes
the color purple.
My sense of humor as well as my musical tastes are very eclectic. I
think the key to living a happy existence is finding balance in
Enough cliches? Let's get the rest of this profile started....
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am going back for another round of grad school, this time of the
doctorate variety. I am studying Public Policy, or how to be
Hermes(Futurama). I also serve as a Research Assistant at my
school, not exactly sure yet what that will entail.
I live in Revere, at the beach. I run on said beach a few times a
week. I occasionally volunteer with Boston Cares, and I like
finding random things to do in the city.
Note: if having a car is important, please note I do not.
Mostly...I left the car I do own many miles away, and am currently
sampling the non-vehicular owning lifestyle.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am very handy with computers and technology. If you want to
create a multi-boot system on your computer with server
capabilities, I am the one to call.
Helping people write cover letters/application essays/resumes/ etc.
Everyone seems to think this so I am going to leave it here.
Baking sweet things when I feel energetic enough to do so.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My blond hair!
When I lived in Venezuela, people would be amazed by this and
actually pull at it. It was not very pleasant for me as a
four-year-old child though. I lived there for about a year and a
half while my family was there for my dad's work.
I can be a little shy when first meeting, but if we can get a good
conversation going I warm up quick.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books- I read too many things online and for school to have much
"fun" reading these days. In past years, fantasy(Harry Potter,
LOTR) and science fiction(Alan Steele, Harry Turtledove) and
Movies- Too many to list?
TV Shows- West Wing, House of Cards, Orange is The New Black, Law
and Order of any type(except Criminal Intent) Big Bang Theory,
Walking Dead, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones. Also, anything by Joss
Whedon(Firefly, Buffy). The Office. Also, random British TV
shows(Blackadder, Doctor Who, Yes Prime Minister). Lately I have
been watching Archer.
Music- I listen to a little bit of everything. Pandora makes it so
much easier to have access to anything I want to listen to. People
always ask your favorite song or singer/musical group, but it is
hard to pick just one favorite when there are so many good songs
and musicians out there.
Food- Italian food is my favorite. I am always up for a good cheese
steak. I am also a fan of pizza.
Worth mentioning here as well: I love board games. Settlers of
Catan, Munchkins, Agricola, Cards Against Humanity. I also like
playing Arkham Horror, but never can never get anyone else
interested. I also like D&D even though I'm a bit rusty.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1.) Family and Friends
2.) Car(this is a lie for the time being)
5.) A kitchen I can cook in (preferably with a dishwasher)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working? Binging Friends(not with actual friends, the TV
I have a fairly odd schedule between school and whatever else I'm
up to, so Friday nights aren't exactly the end of my week like they
used to be.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't have a thyroid gland, and I have always taken a supplement
for this. I am not really secretive about this, just does not
normally come up.
I have eaten horse meat. Slightly different than beef, not sure I
could tell the difference if made to guess.
