Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a navy brat, got to live around the world but was born in MD,
went to college in North Carolina and ended up back in DC as a sort
of grown up.
I really like food and I really like music. I play the piano.
Eating and making/or listening to music are easily my favorite
activities. I also really like traveling, especially when I can eat
really delicious food and listen to really good music while doing
so. I care about social and economic justice and I generally try to
surround myself with people who feel the same way; bonus points if
you actually spend your days trying to bring a little more justice
to the world.
Here's a list of things that make me laugh, because laughing is
important, and if you also find these things funny we might
possibly get along: "that's what he/she/they said" jokes, most
inappropriate jokes, rowdy games of telephone pictionary, the
Office, awkward coworkers who remind me of Office characters, Liz
Lemon, the "shit white girls say to black girls video," sarcasm,
Louie CK, the list goes on.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
E.L. Fudge cookies, chapstick, cupcakes, all other kinds of
cookies, Thai food and Lauryn Hill
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with friends or sleeping.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'll come back to this when I can think of something witty to say.
