Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I hate writing generally about myself, but I will answer almost any
question you ask me.
I am just as happy staying in with take out and a movie as I am
getting dressed up to go out.
I love to travel and experience new things.
You see things; and you say, "Why?" But I dream things that never
were; and I say, "Why not?" -George Bernard Shaw
Well-behaved women rarely make history. -Laurel Ulrich
'Neurotic, ha!' I let out a scornful laugh. 'If neurotic is wanting
two mutually exclusive things at one and the same time, then I'm
neurotic as hell. I'll be flying back and forth between one
mutually exclusive thing and another for the rest of my

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working in special education. Not where I thought I would be 5
years ago, but it's been a lot of fun.
I'm also taking advantage of down time during the weekends, because
my weeks have been non-stop lately, usually involving me not being
home for 12 hours most days. And by taking advantage, I mean
sleeping in and wearing sweatpants. I am capable of wearing real
people clothes and getting out of bed to go out somewhere, but I
will definitely take advantage of an opportunity for some r&r.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Playing along with Jeopardy at home.
Correcting my friends' grammar.
Finding things on Google.
Talking endlessly about my job.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Oh my god, look at that face. You look like my next mistake.
(I get a lot of comments on my eyes. And the fact that I'm
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - anything by David Sedaris, Harry Potter, Things Fall Apart,
Candide, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Bell Jar, Le Petit Prince, The
Movies - I hate slasher movies. Other than that, pretty much
anything is fine
TV - 30 Rock, Community, Grey's Anatomy (more out of habit than
anything else right now), Jeopardy, How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang
Theory, Parenthood, Mythbusters, Food Network, Arrested
Development, New Girl, Daily Show, Colbert Report, Friends and Boy
Meets World in rerun.
Music - pretty flexible (yes, I did quote T Swizzle above)
Food - I love trying new types of cuisine, but sometimes, nothing
beats a pizza on the couch.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Computer (I did make it without my laptop for 6 weeks recently -
good thing my roomie let me borrow hers!)
Phone, even though I forget or lose it half the time
GPS, but I still get lost constantly
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

What I want to do with my life
How to not grow up
"Les grandes personnes ne comprennent jamais rien toutes seules, et
c'est fatigant, pour les enfants, de toujours et toujours leur
donner des explications."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Recovering from the work week!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I used to DVR Jeopardy every night. Partly to learn, partly because
I really enjoy judging the contestants.
You'll have to ask me to find out anything more than that. Once I
start talking to you, I'll admit to just about anything.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You can deal with my crazy work schedule and don't mind me being a
die hard Yankees fan! Also, if you know what DFTBA means. And if
you're up for a game of Trivia Crack. Or if you want to come see
Taye Diggs as Hedwig this summer.
If you just message me saying "hi" or "hey" or "what's up," I
probably will not respond. Ask me something real!
