I'm a good listener but completely tune out the universe when I
concentrate on something. I like to give people advice about career
choices, cold remedies, and work out routines. I like to share my
thoughts with friends and coworkers and don't always care if they
are interested or not. I often think that I could be happy being a
housewife, but don't see that happening. I've been known to rant
interminably about a book, film, or art exhibit that bothered
Also, I may be entering or in the middle of a quarterlife crisis.
Have you had one? Maybe you can explain it to me...

Taking long walks that preferably require crossing from one
burrough into another.
I’m really good at
Articulating and defending my opinions. Adducing random facts
during a conversation. Using a blender, coming up with brunch

Recently (and by that I mean during the last year) I have been on
an Umberto Eco/Salman Rushdie/Jorge Luis Borges kick. (A coworker
recently scolded me for reading Borges in English
For a long time, I opted to not talk of movies/tv in this section,
but here goes: Glee, Bones, Modern Family, American Horror Story,
He-Man and the Masters of the Universe...
The six things I could never do without
Really long books
On a typical Friday night I am
Working late but wishing I was making dinner for friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

judgmental person. Although I am also maternal and

...you use "lol" copiously (or at all).
...you use "jealous" and "envious" interchangeably - they mean very
...you leave the gym without showering - if you're not sweating you
