I come from a faraway land, where boys need only sit and look smart, and girls will flock to them (to work on homework together, but thats not important). It was a comfortable life, but ultimately the heavy cost of fun (and a bit of learning) made it unsustainable. After realizing the debt I incurred, I made my way out to the crisp forests of the Northwest, seeking gold and glory. The gold was decent, but whatever glory I may have had was shrouded by a persistent cloud of grey. It may have also been due to the job being boring.
But through the thick clouds, slight drizzle, and SF hippie wannabes, I heard a voice. It was that of the wise Ms. Katy Perry, accompanied by her advisor Snoop Dog. The women she spoke of, possessing such sunkissed skin, with bikinis on top, convinced me that surely there must be something in the water. Without delay, I packed my bags and headed South for this golden land of opportunity.
And now I'm here on OkCupid.
