Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love artsy stuff: ballet, art, theater, literature. I have habits
I tend to revert to, but I also love learning new things. I'm
generally very easy going, but I'm very passionate about certain
things: reproductive rights, social justice, the serial comma. I'm
not loquacious, so when I say something I generally mean it. I try
to stay involved in activism for issues I care about, like said
reproductive rights. I'm terribly messy and believe the right guy
will find that charming. I was rated "patriotic" in one of these
quizzes, but please don't hold that against me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a graphic designer. It's fine but not something I love. I'm
also a writer, but nobody pays me for that.

reading more nonfiction than I used to of late.
I have a ridiculous sweet tooth, which I try to work out by baking
for other people. My favorite food is Indian, but that's probably
because it's what my mom usually made and she's a fabulous
I tend to like arthouse/indie movies, although my favorite movie is
Seems like Old Times (definitely not arthouse) and I'm also a bit
of a Star Wars geek.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
coffee, chocolate, lipstick, my ipad + keyboard, something good to
read, gmail. For whatever reason, I always want to answer this
question in terms of tangible (more or less) items instead of
abstract concepts, although I agree they're more important (love,
passion, justice or at least the search for it, etc.). And I don't
mention friends or family because I think they're a given. But
maybe they're not a given and I'm missing the point. Who knows?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
politics. sex. how I can rationalize skipping my next workout.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I tend to be really tired Friday nights, so I usually call it a
night fairly early. I'm much more fun on Saturdays.
