My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm fairly outspoken and stubborn and opinionated.

But I'm also very goofy and witty and spontaneous. And obviously humble.

I tend to like art a lot.

I play a few instruments.

I read a lot. And run a lot.

I have a strong need to be adjacent to a body of water.

I value deep and meaningful connections with friends.

I tend to be pretty 'British' with my humor, and very 'German' with my grammar.

I firmly believe that there's no bland food that can't be fixed by Valentina hot sauce.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
starting my PhD this fall, helping plan my best friend's wedding, learning to speak German better, telling myself I'm going to run a full marathon this year.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
grammar, making a good cocktail (especially bourbon cocktail), writing about art, falling asleep through 14 hour flights, staying on a horse, cooking German food, skipping the gym (whoops)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Lately it's been the hair thing. Or the new tattoo; everyone asks about the tattoo.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
books: A Field Guide to Getting Lost by Rebecca Solnit, Black and Blue by Carol Mavor, Reading Boyishly by Carol Mavor. I read a lot of art history. Oh man, and Sylvia Plath's Bell Jar.

music: Well, I write about New Music, so that's Karlheinz Stockhausen, Vinko Globokar, Steve Reich, John Cage, Laurie Anderson, Pamela Z kind of stuff. Then again, I used to play in a steel band (bass) that played anything from Soca to Tchaikovsky. I am known to put one song on repeat for hours--hey I know what I like. I am also a firm believer that your brain needs crap music from time to time. cue Ke$ha.

tv: Downton Abbey is my favorite. arrested development and parks and rec don't suck. Chicky chicky parm parm. Brooklyn 99 is my new jam.

food: Chicago style pizza, ceviche tacos from San Diego, weisswurst from Germany, Nutella Crepes from anywhere, but preferably made by dudes with French accents- like at the lake Merritt farmers market (Oakland reference).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
pens (paper implied), singing (daily and loudly), personal space, close friends, family, Google Hangout.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The website that is going to destroy my life-, lots of critical theory, conferences, CFP's, ways to trick myself into running without feeling guilty about not writing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
at some form of art event or watching my friends at Second City
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like John Denver.
