My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Alright, here's the story: Returned Peace Corps Volunteer who spent two years in the bush in Mozambique. Lover of most things Africa. Bleeding-heart liberal. Musically talentless despite having close to perfect pitch. More Jew-ish than Jewish. Completely reliant on public transportation. Purveyor of all things Eastern Market on the weekends. My favorite sound is that of pouring rain hitting the roof of my attic...oh yea, I live in an attic, but don't worry, it's one classy attic -- hardwood floors, AC/heat, all the good stuff. Vehemently atheist and anti-mustache.

Also (and this is critical): I have an unabashed, undying love for my beloved hockey team, the San Jose Sharks. It's my one genuine obsession.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work for a USAID contractor, where I backstop a brand-new climate change adaptation project in Mozambique. I'm also in grad school (Georgetown - Conflict Resolution).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
building things from scratch and electrical work, even though I've never taken a shop class. Also: quoting Anchorman, calling out "That's what she said" moments, games involving numbers, Scrabble, baking chocolate chip cookies, barbequing, Excel (nerd alert!).

Signing up for events, not training for them, dragging my ass across the finish line, then being sore for the next week.

On the other hand, I'm terrible at emptying my pockets before I wash clothes. I've run keys, wallets, key cards, spare change, just about anything through that machine.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
There's probably a smile on my face (and with that smile, there is one dimple, on the right side...kinda strange)

Also, not a lot of hair on the cabeza. I've accepted it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
In order of importance: music, food, shows, movies, books

Music: The National, U2, Arcade Fire, Broken Social Scene, Bruce Springsteen, Girl Talk, Billy Joel

But for now, all that really matters is Arcade Fire's incredible new album.

Food: Anything spicy. Thai, Mexican (I need to find a good burrito in this town) Italian. Not particularly picky, but not really into seafood.

Also food related: I do most of my own cooking; I usually cook for the week on Saturday or Sunday. I'm trying to add more and more items to the repertoire. Most recently added: vindaloo chicken (okay), tikka masala (pretty good); and korean bbq pork (restaurant quality!).

Shows: House, The Office, SportsCenter, Everybody Loves Raymond, Seinfeld, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Dexter, Scrubs

Movies: Shawshank Redemption, Anchorman, Clerks, Forrest Gump, V for Vendetta, Rudy, The Darjeerling Limited

Books: Count of Monte Cristo, The End of Poverty Three Cups of Tea, The Kite Runner, The Moral Imagination by John Paul Lederach
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Passport: life goal is to be in as many countries as years I've been alive; I'm just about up to date. And I need this for work a couple times a year.
2) Music: as they say in Shawshank, "That's the beauty of music. They can't take that away from you."
3) Carbs: I eat more rice than a typical Asian and more pasta than the average Italian.
4) Aerator for red wine. Just purchased...seriously life-changing.
5) Playoff hockey: the best two months of the year
6) Rainbow sandals
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How much I hate running and why I torture myself with it anyway.

Why people run to catch a metro during rush hour...there's another one coming in two minutes.

How much hipsters are going to regret their pictures with their ridiculous mustaches and non-prescription monster glasses.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Can I just go with the cliche "there's no such thing as a typical Friday?" No. Okay, fine. Depending on the week, I'm either relaxing at home with my roommates or out in the city causing trouble at some dive bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
These aren't private things as much as odd things:

1) I have a mild obsession with infomercials. I deal with this by not having cable.
2) Also, I didn't wear jeans until college. I want my first 18 years back.
3) I have never posted a #tbt picture. I don't intend to start any time soon.
