I was born and raised in the NY tri-state area.
I have a large extended family and am very close to them.
I love to travel and like to plan a big trip each year.
I've been working in the non-profit field for the last five years and feel like it is a much better fit than the corporate world I was in before grad school.
I love bookstores and reading. Emphasis on actual books. As of now, I can't see myself ever switching to an e-reader.
I love to watch and play sports, especially basketball, soccer, and tennis.
I workout regularly (kickboxing, yoga, hiking, etc.).
I don't really enjoy just running alone, but every now and then I will just run. This is in case I ever have to run for my life. I want to be prepared.
I like living in a place that has four seasons, even if this means I have to live through July and August.
On that note, I hate heat and humidity.
I enjoy photography on a very amateur basis.
I don't believe in artificial sweeteners or reduced fat peanut butter or cream cheese.
I watch horror movies through my fingers, which I have over my face. This is not confined to my apartment. It also happens in movie theaters.
