Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I met a guy at a party who later described me as a firecracker, and
that was based solely upon my personality.
While I'm more book smart than street smart, I don't think I'd fall
for a shell game. I've been told more than once that I'm pretty
funny. Like most people I can be very outgoing or more subdued
depending on the company. I don't suffer fools gladly but I have a
lot of love and affection for the people that I'm close with.
I think traveling and being exposed to different cultures is a
really important thing to do its something I get a lot of pleasure
out of (I recognize traveling is not the only way to become well
versed about the wider world, but there's something transformative
about seeing a gothic cathedral when you're 8 year old kid) I was
really lucky, being half Dutch half South African I got to see a
lot of the world at a young age. As an adult I travelled by myself
for a year after high school and I've taken the odd trip here and
there since but I haven't had an adventure in the last few years
and that's something I want to change.

Well the art history degree was a delight to acquire but it's not a
field I want to have a career in... So from the ivory tower to the
mercantile showroom floor where I sell very expensive, albeit very
beautiful, tiles. Additionally I'm also attempting to develop a
social media plan for the company because I'm young and apparently
that's our standard feature.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Baking - I've lost track if how many birthday cakes I've made.
Making a big mess and then cleaning it up. Frisbee. Biking in city
traffic. Drinking - a whiskey and I'm happy. Not getting lost.
Remembering the minute details of stories someone told me years ago
while pretending to have never heard it so I don't feel like a
stalker, and then blow my cover by asking about a detail they
didn't mention this time around. Being a good friend. That's a
pretty good one to end on.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
As a kid I thought when you sold your house you moved into the
house of the person who bought yours. And I still like the idea of
this, it seems so serendipitous.
