Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey Burma okc! What's up? Last time I was here I did not adjust my
profile to say Yangon... so I'm totally curious: what is Burma OKC
(PS. Don't we love that it automatically adjusts the city name
to... Rangoon... but in Myanmar. Ah the contradictions)
Ok. So my profile used to say:
I love to laugh, explore, and learn new things. I love to enjoy and
experience the little things. I love to be in/experience new
cultures. And I am a big news-junkie.
Well, I guess it still does.
But, heck, don't a lot of female profiles say something like that?
(Maybe except for the news junkie part.)
This pretty much sums me up entirely:
Oh and general note: I've learned that the match percentage really
doesn't mean very much. Seriously. Though it might also have
something to do with the fact that I guess... I haven't answered
that many questions?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a journalist. I write things, a lot for radio. Y'know it means
someone pays me to ask a lot of questions and then talk. I can
assure you my brothers never thought there'd be a job for that
And often music stuff, too.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
being silly/not taking things too seriously. laughing. sleeping.
talking and listening. being creative. asking questions.
finding/discovering new places.
being clumsy. forgetting things. spacing out. flying.
except flying. I haven't quite gotten the knack of that.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm told: that I'm friendly. and smile a lot.
(Note: A friend saw this and told me I needed to change it to just
say I'm friendly and smile a lot' because... duh. (well. his duh.
But.. um. doesn't that feel too I don't know.. self-aggrandizing?)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Winnie the Pooh, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Bridge to
Terabithia. It's Kind of A Funny Story. A Problem from Hell:
America and the Age of Genocide
Movies: Laputa: Castle in the Sky, Wayne's World, Stranger than
Fiction, Good Will Hunting
Music: I'm a former music school kid. classic rock, good pop,
electronic, jazz, musicals, those 90s rock bands, a fusion of all
the above? etc. If it's good music I love it all.
Food: good food. but specifically Thai, Japanese (not the typical
American restaurant kind. but, uh... creative izakaya style:) love
it), Moroccan, etc. I seriously love good food. but sadly, after a
backpacking experience saddled me with a tropical parasite, I am
now 'food... stunted' for lack of a better word.. Don't worry. The
parasite is totally gone. getting food is a wee bit harder now, but
it does force you to be creative.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The world around me. What's going on in Karachi affects what's
going on in Georgia affects what's going in Fiji, you know:)
How things work.
my hair. I like cutting it off.
staring at the sky. it's beautiful
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I like to go out and dance, I like to sit at home and play
scrabble. have a potluck party with friends. finger paint
(seriously). have deep conversations - yknow the kind that move
from political theory to cartoons at the drop of a hat. etc.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
um. gee. I'll admit most of anything.... er. but not really to a
website. I used to do a lot of theatre. theatre people are weird.
and tend to be less inhibited. Maybe we can just leave it at that?

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you are kind of sarcastic/geeky/like learning/tasting/trying new
things. And Endlessly curious. Intelligence is the biggest turn
Do you wonder (worry) why more computer scientists don't learn
about how ethics and coding go hand-in-hand, do mesh networks set
your heart a-flutter, how about... Thai politics, how people play,
Burmese hip hop? Lots of interesting stuff out there. What turns
