Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m probably one of the most easy-going people you will ever meet.
That said, I spent my collegiate mornings in the front of a boat
yelling at the rowers. Despite not knowing how to swim and
allegedly running the boat into a bridge, they somehow let me steer
for four years.
My non-aquatic interests include poodles, urban dictionary, and
finding creative ways to prepare and consume garbanzo beans (latest
development: chickpea tacos).
My mother once said that I use too many exclamation points in my
writing, so I'm trying to scale back!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I was happily working at a marketing firm, writing by-lines for
diet pills and motorized wheelchair advertisements, when I realized
that my true calling in life involves removing all of the Count
Chocula boxes from supermarket shelves. In order to achieve my
dream of ruining eating experiences for everyone, I finished a
public health and nutrition degree and worked on a bunch of child
obesity prevention projects. Despite this, I still really like
eating dessert before and/or after every meal.
Long-term goal: create the militant wing of the Salvation Army
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at ordering at restaurants, drawing Homer Simpson
cartoons on bar napkins, making lousy excuses not to go running
(i.e. "it might rain in 8 hours"), and urging loved ones to eat

My smile. After that probably comes my New York accent. I make it a
point to frequently order a "tall coffee".
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

English major here. "Flowers for Algernon" was possibly one of the
best books that I've ever read. I'll read almost anything by Tom
Robbins, Dostoevsky (or any other morbid Russian, for that matter),
and Leon Uris. I'll stop here with the books, because I would
otherwise go on forever.
I will happily admit to owning "Snakes on a Plane" on DVD. I love
watching documentaries of any variety, which frequently results in
fervent topic-specific internet searches. Also on this list: the
rare film that will make me cry (I include "Toy Story 3" and
"Bridesmaids" in this tear-jerker category, so I have the feeling
my definition of "sad" is slightly off-kilter).
I read too many food blogs to be able to pick a favorite food, but
I am currently obsessed with the toppings bar at 16 Handles (not
the froyo, just the toppings). As a result of growing up in a New
York-Jewish household, I take lots of comfort in fried potatoes,
briny/pickled items, and cured meats of any variety. I will dump
half a bottle of hot sauce on almost anything, and I will not put
butter in my coffee (the NYTimes says that's a thing?).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-My space heater, even in the summer
-Wikipedia, but only because it's my go-to source for book
-My yoga mat. Have mat, will travel
-Toscanni's goat cheese brownie ice cream
-Self-deprecation. If Woody Allen can pull it off, I'm confident
that I can too
Thing I could never do:
-An un-ironic duckface
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
A) My kombucha scoby, and if that weird fuzzy thing on top of it is
mold or just yeast, and B) Where I want to ride my bike (long-term
goal: Boston to Providence)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once got caught taking food from a medical school student
function (sorry med students).

You know the difference between a bagel and a bialy. If you make me
laugh, I'll love you forever (is that a threat?).
