Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m an east coast girl displaced in paradise. I grew up outside of
Philly, lived in Manhattan for several years, and relocated to LA
almost two years ago.
I'm begrudgingly a grown up by day but a kid at heart. It's typical
for me to jump from debating an esoteric topic to bopping around to
some awesomely terrible pop song and then return to my debate only
to erupt into giggles about something ridiculous two minutes
INTP, but uncharacteristicly social. Passionately nerdy about the
law. Unexpectedly silly.
I’m into bourbon, and I love board games, particularly Risk. I read
the NYTimes. I dislike cats and drama. I tend to wear black, but my
apartment is mostly white. I don't think I understand
I probably won't be impressed by the money you make or the weights
you lift, but I'm always down for some good intellectual
conversation. So, if you think spending a Saturday afternoon at a
brewery talking about something other than celebrity gossip sounds
like a good time, we might be in business. Just keep in mind that I
hate pretension, so please leave that at home. But please do bring
some seltzer (see below); that'd be awesome.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m an attorney, and I love what I do.
I went to law school in New York, came out here to clerk for a
judge, fell in love with the California sunshine, and recently
started at a firm downtown. (Bonus points if you know what a law
I do serious work, but I always carry a work-hard-play-hard
attitude. My only complaint is that my schedule is too weird to get
a dog. Please let me know if you would like to walk my future dog.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Pretending to be good at things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm short. I'm about 5ft tall.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Dry, witty humor
Bubbles in my water
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
1. Why nobody on this site seems to know the difference between
"me" and "I." Seriously, people. "I" is not a more formal word for
"me." The two words serve entirely different grammatical
2. Why seltzer—which is apparently just called "sparkling water"
here—is so expensive and hard to find on the West Coast. All I want
is this stuff: http://www.vintageseltzer.com
