Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Spent my entire life moving back and forth between Israel and
California. After attending high school in the US, I spent the past
six years in Israel, and have been traveling the world for the past
seven months and counting.
I'm now attending Minerva, a new and exciting sort of university in
San Francisco! I'll be here for about a year before moving
Oh, and I (sometimes) blog:
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Starting undergrad (it's about time) at The Minerva Schools, a
different and hopefully awesome take on university. Beyond that,
exploring San Francisco, and playing as much ultimate frisbee as I
can find the time for.
Before that, I left the Israeli army after a prolonged stint, and
took some time to travel. I visited the US (Miami, Orlando, NYC),
Argentina, Antarctica, and Chile. Made it to Brazil as well, and
then flew to California to check out the university program I'll
attend next year. It's new, awesome, and exciting. Let's talk all
Things I like: sports, and a lot of them (Running, Ultimate
Frisbee, some Basketball, gym), meeting friends, Friday afternoon
Hummus, feminism, any and all nerdiness, reading (when I find the
time), hiking, orienteering, cooking (improvised), writing (mostly
blogging), traveling (never enough).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have a pretty good memory for random and meaningless facts, but
sometimes embarrassingly forget names (but once I remember the
name, everything else comes rushing along).
I get along well with technology, run reasonably fast, and I love
to cook (and apparently the results aren't half bad either. Help me

I'd imagine it's glasses if I'm wearing them, or my eyes if I'm
not. Back when I had my hair purple I had a rather easier answer to
Personality-wise, I'd like to think it's openness and honesty.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Generally, I'm a huge rock fan. I caught four of my current
favorites live last year: Black Keys, Arcade Fire, Franz Ferdinand,
and Arctic Monkeys. I love rock/rap collaborations - currently
overplaying the Imagine Dragons/Kendrick Lamar mix, but BlackRoc
and Collision Course are older favorites. If I'm trying to write or
focus, I generally go for instrumental or classical music, and for
working out, it'll usually be something angry or beat-y (Rage
Against the Machine? Girl Talk?).
I can watch anything by Tarantino again. Especially Pulp Fiction.
I'll also never say no to The Princess Bride. In the more
embarrassing category, I occasionally re-watch of Nick and Nora's
Infinite Playlist and Top Gun (and Ten Things I Hate About You, but
that gets parentheses since it's extra embarrassing).
I read anything and everything. Especially if it's Ender's Game (or
its sequels). I just finished Fall of Giants, which was incredible,
and I'm working my way through the Song of Ice and Fire (Game of
Thrones) saga. Edit: Finished the series. For now. It's epic and
awesome, especially once you get going.
TV: Doctor Who is fantastic, although I've been on a Big Bang
Theory binge lately. There are mostly shows I still need to watch
someday: The Wire, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, ... for now I'm
watching Archer. Hilarious.
I love spicy food - I can eat Sirarcha with anything. Then again, I
also love non-spicy food. But nothing can really beat a fresh bowl
of hummus, followed by black (Turkish) coffee.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Traveling changed my mind somewhat:
- A good backpack and comfortable shoes
- Someone to share some experiences with
- Delicious, delicious food
- Internet access (at least every other week)
- Some vague semblance of a plan or idea
- Sex (especially of the good, passionate, kinky kind)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Different life decisions and how they led me here, what to have for
dinner, should I have knee surgery, how is The Donald so popular,
feminism, kink, opening myself to some things I'm still wary about,
you know, the usual.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I just moved to San Francisco, so I have no clue. Let's find out
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

On the first day of high school (after moving to California from
Israel) I accidentally walked into the girls' bathroom... Luckily
no one else was there and I moved on as if it never happened.
I want something real. And fun. If I had to choose one, at this
stage it'll probably be real. But it should be both. Now that I'm
travelling, though, I'm very much fine with things more casual and
fun than deep.

Above all, if you're into open and honest communication, regardless
of whether we're meeting for a drink, a one night stand, or the
relationship of the rest of our lives.
Beyond that, if you don't mind meeting for a coffee or a beer (or
scotch), and seeing how well we get along in real life. You think
we'll have fun talking and seeing where it goes.
