Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Okcupid is urging (strong-arming? forcing? threatening?
aggressively insisting?) me to fill out my profile. To be honest,
I'm not sure where to even begin. My story isn't all that exciting
and/or different than most NYC transplants, I'm sure. I grew up in
a small suburban town where you can still find the same people
hanging out at the same cornerstore years after high school
graduation. I decided I didn't want to be another town
lifer/breeder; so I left. I bounced around from coast to coast
before finally landing in NYC. Call it fate, chance, where all
paths merged into one or whathaveyou but here I am. I've been
living in NYC for a little more than a year now pursuing any and
all creative endeavors that come my way. I like to go out, explore
the city, hang with a tight circle of friends, and obtain as much
knowledge as I can. That pretty much sums it up until I have more
time to think of a better (more clever?) description of myself.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Pursuing any and all creative and/or intellectual endeavors while
throwing caution to the wind. I'd rather take a chance than play it
safe. It's not always the easiest way of living but it's gotten me
this far just fine.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
doing a lot of things fairly well but not mastering any one skill.
(I'm working on fixing that.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People seem to often think I'm French. I'm really not sure why. I
tend to come across as reserved until I get to know someone. Or
perhaps it's a mix of looking dazed and confused versus lost deep
in thought? I don't know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Way too many to answer. It hurts my head to even think about it. Do
people really fill this section out? This is probably more
interesting to discuss in person anyway.
However, I will say that things I'm always down to do: go see a
band play, spend hours browsing at the Strand, go on a road trip,
grab coffee, hit up a movie at one of the independent theaters in
the city, and hang out in the park just to name a few.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Stimulating conversation, sleep, coffee, art/music, a varied
routine, and laughter.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
It's mostly just spur of the moment. My next art project. My next
trip. I try not to dwell on too much.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Grabbing drinks with a friend or going to a concert or staying in
to work on art stuff or whatever comes up. I'm usually up for
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I don't really think I'll meet anyone special on Okcupid and
that it's not as great as people try to convince me it is? (Or is
this something I'm not supposed to admit outloud?)
Update: I'm still not very impressed by OKC (but I'm hoping I'll
find someone who can change my mind).

and a desire to do anything in the spur of the moment.
