Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up with an incredible combination of country crunchiness and
city culture. My dad, an artist, taught me to chop wood and grow
things in the ground and raise chickens. We took frequent trips to
the city, where my parents both grew up, to visit museums and/or my
grandparents in Sheepshead Bay. It's been a great life, and I can't
complain. I'm smart, funny, and compassionate.
I'm generally a happy person. Down-to-earth, but on top of stuff. I
laugh a lot, and can find joy in just about anything. An optimistic
realist, I guess. I'm affectionate and attentive, but like my
space. I kind of get along with everyone, but spend more energy on
my dearest friends than on acquaintances.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Enjoying it, thoroughly. Trying to be the best teacher, friend, and
mother I can be. Mowing my acre while wondering what house project
I should start next. Spending as much time with my friends and
family as possible.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Trying to be a good person. Picking songs for imaginary (or real)
film soundtracks. Listening.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My kiddo, my family, my friends, music, books, a satisfying career.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I need to finish one of the writing projects I've begun. Or start a
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either home with my daughter, or out having a drink with friends.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once thought it was a brilliant idea to show my freshmen the film
Harold and Maude, as an accompaniment to The Catcher in the Rye. It
didn't go over so well.
Louis C.K. Is my biggest celebrity crush.
Every time I watch an episode of True Detective, I have to look up

for season 2.)

You love music, your family, and being outside. You're generally
optimistic. You lean toward the left and the creative, but aren't
impressed with yourself about it. Intelligence, creativity, and
humility are extremely attractive.
