Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Michigan-->Seattle-->SF. I enjoy swimming in Aquatic Park and
putting googly eyes on inanimate objects.
It might not work out if you're really into professional sports or
religion, or if you're the one putting all those "die techie scum"
stickers outside my house.
But really if you're that last person, can we please talk? :(
okc is going well so far:
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Recording one second each day of it. Here's 2014:
Keeping busy at my day job. I work at a cleantech company on
software which encourages people to conserve energy.
Dolores park, SF shenanigans, day hikes, and hosting brunch.
Found my housemates on this silly site as well:
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Open-water swimming! Done a handful of open-water swims throughout
Washington and California; hopefully more to come.
Pretending I know how to use my housemate's DJ equipment.
Tracing wires, pipes, and other pieces of infrastructure when I'm
out in public. Don't worry, that's about as nerdy as it gets :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I gesture a lot when I get excited talking about something.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
30 Rock, House of Cards, Archer, Bob's Burgers. In the past I was
really in to House for some reason (I actually scheduled classes
around it in college). Netflix binge watching is a real phenomenon
and it is glorious.
Not really into fiction reading. I usually listen to nonfiction
audio books on the walks to or from work. Topics are all over the
map -- just random things I've been recommended or stumbled
I grew up insanely picky (like...
pick-oregano-flakes-out-of-pizza-sauce picky). Made great progress
in the past year :) Huge fan of Thai, Mexican, and Indian food. I
don't cook that often, but I'm competent. I'm especially good at
brunch foods. See my blog,
, for details.
Kitchen has been locked into a kick-ass Santana station on Pandora
for several months. Also 80s/90s rock makes an appearance. At my
desk it's usually some form of electronica -- chillout, ambient,
liquid dnb, and related subgenres.
Every now and then I blast country music; my housemates call these
occurrences "relapses." Sometimes I play Eminem and reminisce about
my childhood. Rumor has it he briefly lived in my suburban Michigan
neighborhood. I can break out a killer "Wrecking Ball" at karaoke
if the need arises.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Chapstick. I keep it stocked everywhere. I can't go more than an
hour without it. We all have our vices...
Google Maps -- I get lost in parking lots.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What that awesome smelling pink soap in some restaurant bathrooms
is, and how to acquire it for my house. Ask me -- I've spent more
time on this endeavor than could possibly be considered healthy
***** BREAKING NEWS ***** HERE IT IS:
Now I'm working on becoming an accredited restaurant so they will
sell it to me.
Gentrification. This is the first time I've been part of a
demographic which is directly targeted by an active local political
movement, and I'm spending a lot of time researching the
Why people in traffic honk so much when there's no way it could
possibly have a positive effect.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I've been spending more Fridays in recently. I love people, but I
can't go non-stop socializing all weekend. Typically it's something
low-key, either alone or with a friend/housemate or two.
I can tell you what's it definitely does NOT involve though --
clubbing/dancing or anything swanky/fancy. Not my scene. Give me a
$2 street taco and a dive bar any day.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My "famous" pancake recipe is actually just the first Google search
result, with extra butter.
I can recite every word to Weird Al's "Albuquerque".
Also I guess this: http://xkcd.com/1146
