Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
One day when I was a kid I picked a spot in my backyard and did my
best to "memorize" it. I loudly exclaimed: "If I ever learn how to
time travel, I'll come back to THIS moment, right now!" Then I
waited around for a good solid five minutes to see if future me
appeared out of nowhere to greet me with wisdom and knowledge of
future video games.
A few years later, having forgotten the original time/spot, I tried
the same thing again somewhere new. Still nothing. I kept this
pattern up every few years, with disappointing results.
To this day I have yet to be visited by a future version of myself.
But I'm convinced that's not because I never learn how to time
travel. Rather, I am simply doing a poor job remembering which
point in time I'm supposed to travel back to. As soon as I lock
that down, I'm sure it'll happen.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently pursuing my MFA in creative writing (along with a
steady paycheck) at Columbia University. When I'm not doing one of
those two things, you might find me travelling, performing improv,
organizing a game night, going camping, or otherwise goofing off
with friends. To quote an obscure song I once heard about being
addicted to crystal meth, I live a semi-charmed kinda life.
I recently got into live storytelling, and got one of my stories
professionally animated, which was awesome. It makes me want to get
some animator(s) indebted to me forever somehow, so I can get my
entire life recreated as the world's longest and most pointless
I bought a Fitbit recently and it's totally changed my life.
Something about seeing a bunch of little meters fill every day
(along with the comparisons to my friend's step) has made me into a
bit of an obsessive walking machine.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Pool, board games, scheduling, exploring new locales, and turning
awkward situations into slightly less awkward situations.
I'm really bad at any and all eating and drinking-related
competitions. I just wasn't built for massive amounts of short-term
consumption, unless we're talking about something like a Game of

Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm just gonna give a smattering (there's a word I never say) of

Morty, classic Simpsons, David Sedaris, Mad Men, This American
Life, TJ & Dave.
I'm also a pretty big fan of food, overall.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-The money I get from my job.
-The things I buy with the money I get from my job.
-The comforts that come from the things I buy with the money I get
from my job.
-The happiness which emanates from the comforts that come from the
things I buy with the money I get from my job.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

I started a fan club for myself when I was 12. It sounds like the
most narcissistic thing a person could ever do, I know, but it was
a joke. Mostly. And I kept this joke up - with monthly newsletters
and all - for about 8 years.
