Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've come to an epiphany in my life that things need to change. As
such, I've decided that a great way to start this journey of
rediscovery is to take a crack at college in particular the
University of Washington, luckily I'm not going in blind, I do have
a career path that I'm passionate about, oncology social work. Also
I've been thinking of meeting new people, but as I'm sure a lot of
us out there have thought, it's difficult to find the time to
juggle all the responsibilities in our lives and at the same time
meet someone that we can squeeze into it. A couple of friends of
mine mentioned OkCupid | Free Online Dating website and thought to
myself, why not... so here I am giving it my best shot, hoping that
it'll be a lot of fun.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently studying at the University of Washington to attain my
BA in Community Psychology, then I hope to transfer to a MA program
in Social Work so that I can eventually pursue a career in Oncology
Social Work... in the meantime I'm looking for ideas for
volunteerism, possibly at a Crisis Center and an internship which I
was dabbling with the notion of studying alongside social workers
that are employed with CPS (Child Protective Services), we'll see
how that goes.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hm... I've been told I'm really good at being intuitive about
people, maybe that's why I'm going for a degree in Psychology. A
wise man once said, "If you're good at something, never do it for
free," that's very sound advice. - Heath Ledger as The Joker in The
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I was to say what's the first thing a person usually notices
about me I guess it would have to be a physical characteristic, the
most recent compliment that I can remember was that someone
commented that I, "...have amazing eyes," (they're green by the
way, quiz on this later) not exactly sure why that is, but I took
the compliment. After someone has taken enough time to sit and chat
with me, I've also been told that, "I'm easy to talk too," again
not sure what that means, seems rather vague but I took the
compliment. Maybe if you're reading this and we end up sitting down
for a coffee or a bite to eat you can eventually enlighten me on

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This may only be five things but I think I'm going to have to refer
to my good buddy, Abraham Maslow on his 1943 paper, "A Theory of
Human Motivation". We start at the bottom with...
1.) Physiological needs, such as breathing, food, water, sex,
sleep, homeostasis, and excretion.
2.) Safety needs which refers to the safety of: the body,
employment, resources, morality, the family, health, and
3.) Love and belonging, such as friendship, family, and sexual
4.) Esteem which covers self-esteem, confidence, achievement,
respect of others, and the respect by others.
5.) Self-actualization, such as morality, creativity, spontaneity,
problem solving, lack of prejudice, and acceptance of facts.
If you hadn't noticed, I'm studying psychology (to be more
specific, Community Psychology at the University of Washington).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I don't really like to say that I spend a lot of time thinking
about any particular one thing, I'd hope that I take my time
thinking about priorities in my life and how to attain goals that I
set for myself. However, if I was going to admit of something that
matters enough to occupy my thoughts fairly often, it would
probably be about the well-being of my friends and family, not to
say that they have a habit of getting into trouble or happen to be
accident prone... but I feel that it's to a degree flattering to
say that there are people whom are significant enough in your life
where you find yourself now and again wondering how things are with
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At this juncture in my life, I'd probably have to say that it would
be the beginning of my studying so that I can complete my readings
of whatever assigned articles are required for the next class
lecture, researching thru databases for scholarly journals I can
use in future presentations pertaining to the topic subject matter
relevant to the course objectives as stated in the syllabus, and
completing essays that fulfill requirements via my Professor's
grading rubric... oh, and headaches, lots of them. UGH!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Nothing is for free, you get what you give... if you're willing to
make an attempt to get to know me then and only then will I talk to
you about private matters, I'm not going to try and coax strangers
with tidbits about my life without any effort on their part. Sorry
everybody, you'll just have to try harder.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you genuinely want to get to know me, even if you have a
curiosity that just needs to be sated... I'm not going to
objectivity you nor will I judge you on whatever inquiries you have
pertaining to subject matter about me. Trust me when I say, just be
yourself, ask whatever pops into your head, and let's see where
this dialogue takes us. I'm more than happy in meeting a new
friend, possibly more than that, and if we find out we don't have
enough in common to build upon, well it was a pleasure meeting you.
