Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am outgoing, love to travel (insert list of places here which
will invariably come off as pretentious/elitist/privileged/etc.),
and love laughing at myself (I also tend to overuse emoticons when
I text; it's true...).
I don't take myself too seriously; a fact I hope was alluded to by
my profile name. :)
I'm comfortable with math and science, but also love acting (acted
in a student film in college), singing, reading, writing, and
learning about different cultures.
I enjoy ballet, visiting museums, and watching theatre &
musicals, but also enjoy working out, motorcycling, bungee-jumping,
and scuba-diving (got my license in a Dolphin reef) as well. I'm
also a voracious reader/audiobook listener.
As I'm sure you already know, it's difficult to paint a picture of
oneself when confined to this little box, so please feel free to
write or IM me. I promise I'm not as humorless as my pictures would
make me seem. ;)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spend the majority of my free time writing, or working on other
side projects. The rest of the time I spend trying to get toight
like a toiger.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I most recently enjoyed Clarissa Pinkola Estés' "Women Who Run With
the Wolves." I love Baldwin ("Another Country" - pretty much
everything he's written :)), and have recently enjoyed Madeline
Miller's "The Song of Achilles," Steinbeck's "The Grapes of Wrath,"
(I prefer him to Hemingway and Faulkner :)), Maugham's "Of Human
Bondage," (though I preferred "The Razor's Edge"), Capote's
"Breakfast at Tiffany's," Zora Neale Hurston's "Their Eyes Were
Watching God," and Aldous Huxley's "Those Barren Leaves,"
(Uccchh... I. Love. Huxley.)
I'm a bit picky about movies but of newer films I loved: Remote
Area Medical, Tim's Vermeer, The Great Beauty, Blue Is The Warmest
Color, The Sessions, A Single Man, True Grit, Love Actually, Blue
Valentine, Waste Land, The September Issue, The Tree of Life, Miss
Representation, and The Artist (I tend to fast-forward through
movies. It's bad.).
I'll try any type of food twice (first reaction never
I used to listen to a lot of Indie/Electro Rock, I'm now really
getting into EDM, which I'm trying to learn to compose. Also. I
love Purity Ring.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I like to stay in shape, and am a voracious reader.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Fictional stories I'd like to write. Gender. How we form our
identities and how much of it is determined by our respective
backgrounds (Kudos to Diaz's "The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Grabbing drinks with friends, visiting museums, seeing plays or
dance performances, going to Indierock concerts, raves, dancing, or
having some amazing wines/meats/cheese over conversation.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I appreciate fashion, have enjoyed taking ballet classes in the
past, and sometimes do yoga (though I mostly lift now).
Also, sometimes, I can't even.
