Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm Byron. I'm a little too busy for my own good - probably
because I can't stand being bored. I am forcing myself to learn the
value of down-time after finishing up my MBA this last
The last few months of my life have been all about perspective -
how important it is, how sometimes it gets lost and distored in the
day-to-day of our lives. Now, I'm committed to not losing it
I would rather sit and have a meaningful conversation with someone
than most anything else; at a bar, on a couch, walking down the
street. Just not on the phone - I hate talking on the phone,
Grew up on a farm in a small-ish town (Ellensburg), and even though
I love Seattle more than life itself, sometimes I miss the smell of
wet dirt during the spring, or what its like to look up and
actually see the stars.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just finshied my MBA, and realized that I'm not too keen about
working in a corporate environment anymore. I am excited to have an
opportunity to use the word "keen", which I thought was an old word
that nobody used back when I had to type it in Middle School typing
Outside of work, I enjoy catching some quality couch time watching
TV with my roomates, or people-watching. I just picked up a violin
for the first time not too long ago, and am trying to get back into
the habit of writing.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh, cooking, staying on the positive, surrounding
myself with (mostly) drama-free people.
Onto the geekier things: I like to work wonders in Excel, write
research papers, and can probably tell if I've seen an episode of
Star Trek: TNG within the first thirty seconds.
And I'm *really really* good at quoting Family Guy, remembering
song lyrics, and buying songs that I used to listen to in high
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I start giggling before I say the joke, because I can't
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Slaughterhouse Five, 100 Years of Solitude, Song of
Movies: Burlesque, Scott Pilgrim, Kill Bill (I like musicals,
comedy, and explosions/flying body parts); The Hours, The Lost
Coast, Beautiful Thing, A Home at the End of the World (good movies
to think deeply and get emotional about); all Star Trek, all Star
Wars, Resident Evil (Sci-Fi!!!)
TV: Family Guy, Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek, Law & Order
(original, SVU, and UK), The IT Crowd. And now for the maybe
embarassing - Degrassi, iCarly, Barefoot Contessa to obscene
extremes. I love watching Xena on Netflix instant.
Music: So much, its unreal. Depends on my mood. Currently trying to
break out of my Top 40 addiction. I have music that will make you
want to dance, and music that will make you want to cry. Its all
good. Top artists I think are Tracy Chapman, Melissa Etheridge,
Cher, Celine Dion, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, most of what you
probably hear in the bars. My roomate says that my music selection
makes me the lesbian of the house (and she's gay too) :p
Food: I appreciate simple things that I make at home. Its amazing
what can come out of a few ingredients, olive oil, and the right
temperature. Wost thing in the world - eating out and paying more
than $15-ish for an entree that doesn't blow me away.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Good friends - my iPod - a couch worth falling alseep on - fresh
air - Family Guy quotes - coffee first thing in the morning.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Doing whatever's clever. Sometimes I go out and go crazy, sometimes
I sit in and watch movies with my roommates.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
In 3rd grade I lied to the lunch monitor and told her a fly landed
and subsequently drowned in my milk and, therefore, I couldn't
finish it. There was no fly.
