Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Somewhere between a nerdy philosopher and a social butterfly. That
probably doesn't sound good. I love being active and am pretty much
up for anything except for playing video games for more than an
hour. I have more guy friends than girl friends so I feel like I
understand what irks men. I spend hours defending my friends'
I will never ask you to hold my purse while I shop, nor will I
dress you, unless you ask.
Grew up in a very musical family. Love the stuff; can't get
Every genre. I listen to Debussy, Primus and Britney Spears on the
same playlist. I am the only sibling of three who has not pursued a
musical career. I am a scientist who has to stop and paint, sing,
direct a show, write a short story or go on a photography safari
every once in a while to satisfy my creative needs.
One of my first toys was a computer yet I can't seem to upload
photos on my facebook.
I'm absolutely in love while nature, not so much the little fuzzy
bunny part, but the crazy intertwined part. I'm currently finishing
my Master's in Ecology. My bachelor's was in Linguistics. I tend to
geek out if you put me near the ocean, by a petri dish (yes, I
know. eww.) or in a room full of accents or foreign
I'm also very into big functional cities: San Fran, New York,
London....probably because they are big rooms of accents and
foreign language, with convenient and accessible public
My one true vice is travel. I attribute any debt accrued in my life
to the need to climb all over the Eiffel tower or the great wall.
Currently, I'm writing this summary from a cabin in the woods (kind
of unibomber-sounding, I imagine.) but I'm planing my next trip to
New York, already. I'm sort of shopping for the next place I'd like
to live. I'm applying to PhD programs in the next few months so I
have the potential to end up anywhere.
Nope. Not a trust fund baby. When I'm not in school, I tutor kiddos
and help them get into college. It's fun; especially since, often
times I feel the 17-year-old and I have about the same maturity
I'm a movie person. I spend time texting my guy-friends random
lines from movies as a challenge. Not really into the SAW movies
(they make my dreams funky) but other classic horror is okay. Yep.
I like chick flicks, but I also like Comics movies and Will Farrell
stuff. I can watch the anchorman street brawl over and over and
I'm looking to meet people who like to go do things even if its
just low key stuff. Future friends or love interests; both work for
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently I'm working on my research for my Master's in
Biology/Ecology. Nearly done.
Learning to play the bass (not the fish, the intstrument)
Baking funfetti cupcakes for a friends wedding (its the grooms
Hopefully, at some point in the future I will finally become a
professor. It seems a ways off though.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading people...among other things.
Cooking apparently, or my friends have figured out I will cook for
them if they pay me compliments and I'm a schmuck.
Being witty and snappy when the mood strikes me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
This way too long of a list but I will try.
Books: Life of Pi, Angels and Demons, Great Expectations, 1984,
Brave New World, The Giving Tree, Catundra. Currently reading Don't
Sleep, there are snakes and Shoal of Time in an attempt to make the
journal articles for my research less painful.
Movies: Documentaries are good but usually I need more mindless
stuff because I've been thinking all day and need to wind
My tastes are all over the board though: The Count of Monte Cristo,
Spiderman, Rocky (i believe 4 is the best...you know, where he
fights the evil commies and technology...symbolically), Mickey Blue
Eyes, Adventures in babysitting, Goonies, Amelie, Once were
warriors, Run Lola Run, Jenzeits der stille, Finding Nemo
Music: Dad was a Jazz musician; Mom listened to George Michael and
Mowtown. I can't even begin to describe how that contributes to my
eclectic musical taste.
Food: Would rather cook it than eat it (cooking is edible design)
but I do like to eat it. Currently on a falafel kick. My tastes are
very cosmopolitan, although there are some things I don't like:
chicken feet, tripe, really fatty meat. Everything is fair game and
lots of fun to try.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Dinners with friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why things (and people) work the way they do.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Typical is not a word used to describe any part of my schedule. I
could be out at a club, at home with a movie, having dinner with
friends, tutoring a student, or, in the case of tonight, avoiding
the research that I should be doing.
I long for a somewhat typical schedule.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I wear my heart on my sleeve.
