Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Just finished up 6 years of being an NYC grad student, and now
finally have my PhD. I work at a research center in midtown
overseeing all our data-related stuff and running analyses. My
research combines psychology and public health in the areas of
sexual behavior and HIV, particularly for gay/bi/queer/etc. men,
but I work on a variety of projects that focus on different but
related topics. I'm a workaholic during the week and then
compartmentalize it all away on the weekend.
Other than that, enjoy going out with friends and having fun, or
staying in and watching movies/TV. Some things I enjoy watching are
the Showtime/HBO series (true blood, game of thrones, the big C,
weeds, US of Tara, etc.), L&O SVU, drag race, and shows on
channels like Discovery and NatGeo. An interesting combination of
interests, I know. For the most part, I don't get into reality
I also cook well, but don't do it as often as I should because I
get home late from work... and I hate cleaning up after. I have a
very sarcastic personality, but can sometimes be a little reserved
with it (and in general) when meeting someone new.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Now that I have my phd, I'm working towards my goal of getting a
tenure-track faculty position - trying to get myself established as
a researcher. Keeps me very busy, and I'm pretty passionate about
it - it's a really good way to satisfy my curious nature in a

Oops, see above for the tv stuff.
Mostly psychology-related books, including some popular psychology.
I rely more on movies and tv for my fictional pleasure.
I like a lot of different types of music and it usually depends on
my mood - I tend to let Spotify create radio stations for me.
In terms of food, my tastes vary. I love salad - condiments are my
favorite part of food (especially vinegar), and salad is a great
medium for condiments. I'm not a vegetarian, but I don't eat beef,
pork, or other mammals - I eat seafood and poultry.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My cell phone
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
As a social psychologist, I spend a lot of time thinking about
people and how they relate to each other. I also spend a good
amount of time thinking about: my future, my job, candy, politics,
gender, technology, sex, friends/family, money (or lack thereof),
NYC, and many other things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Wishing I was at karaoke (if I'm not, in fact, at karaoke)
