Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Single, responsible, intelligent. Blunt in a thoughtful way.
Instantly bored in the shallow end.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Day job in clinical research and teaching. Former bartender, did
the pre med post bac thing, now preparing for a masters in music.
Having a ball.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Everything. But nottttt quite good enough. Frankly it's annoying.
God dammit. And are all those t's necessary? Yes, they are. I hope
you're cute. I am actually really good at listening, in the
broadest sense - you may find that useful in the particular.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Asian-ish. Not repulsive.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I appreciate a well-crafted sentence or two. Recovering Bukowski
fan (what was I thinking?), reader of Pynchon and obituaries.
Music that can be heard at the Kimmel or at a warehouse in North
There's this brit comedy called Peep Show.
I eat anything, if I remember to. I'm a stringbean.
I actually don't read obituaries, but I did have a crush on Wynona
Ryder. (That really ought to be self explanatory.)
Hillary Hahn can suck it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I've learned I can pretty much do without everything but peace of
mind. And coffee. Coffee is big. And good strings.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to get all of it. Solving problems and showing others how to
solve problems. Elegance. Clean intonation, good tone. How many
things I can think about all at once while biking in traffic
(answer: fewer than while standing still. Kinetic meditation). How
republicans became that way. What it's like to be someone else. Is
it a rash or is it cancer. Is Woody Allen brilliant enough for
women not to loathe him, and is there any sort of generalizable cut
off in that department. What is technology doing to us. Human
history from the standpoint of thermodynamics. Schizo vs.
Bluetooth. How long can you leave it in the fridge. Why, oh why the
fuck don't they open another Trader Joe's in Center City. The
inherent superiority of bicycle riders. The remote possibility of
getting pushed in front of the SEPTA train vs. the very real
expectation of it happening. Emigrating to England. How
professionals afford such expensive instruments. Do I sound like
shit. Do they sound like shit. Do we sound like shit.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Practicing, performing, dancing, panicking.
