My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm not good at the "self-summary" thing. I know -- I might as well have just left this section blank. But I had to put something here, at least to make it seem like I have something genuinely interesting to say about myself.

I'm pretty quiet, especially when I first meet someone. But I open up more once I get to know people better (another reason why I'm not very good at the self summary thing). But give me time and you'll find I'm quite sarcastic, cynical and, from what I've been told, funny (I've never tried being funny on purpose; I suppose I just do things that my friends somehow find amusing).

In general I like the things you'd probably expect me to like, such as reading, movies, theater, etc. But I also love to try new things ( within reason!) ranging from the typical trying new food to going to a drop in swing dance class or trying a new ziplining course somewhere. I get a little bit of an adventurous streak in me every once in a while. But overall, I'd say I much prefer cafes to bars/clubs. I do go out to happy hours with friends/coworkers (love it when they just keep going way beyond what was planned) and I have a great time. But I don't particularly care for the crowds or noise and would much rather go somewhere where you can hear the people you're with and actually have a conversation.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Laptop, internet, bookstores, snacks, public transportation (because I don't like to drive), and . . .
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Thinking about how I should be studying, trying to study, and then ultimately failing to study. And then I blow the rest of the night on typical Friday things.
