Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a total nerd. If it's a book, I'll read it. I have an
unbelievable amount of trivia stored in my head, on all different
topics. If you don't know something, chances are you can ask me and
I will know. That's just how I am... I'm always reading and
I'm a grammar junkie. I love linguistics. Foreign languages excite
me. Dictionaries are fun. I learned to read when I was three and
used to hound my Mom to do spelling bees with me when I was four
years old. Yeah, I'm a nerd. Please be able to understand and
appreciate my nerdiness, as it's a big part of who I am.
I'm very funny, sweet, loving, quirky, and intellectual. I'm
extraordinarily affectionate and love cuddling, hugging, kissing,
and have no problem with PDAs, as long as they're not
Cats are my favourite animals. I own three (sadly, one of them
passed away recently) and they are my babies, so obviously, to date
me, you will need to love cats, as well.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm getting back on track after dealing with a big load of health
issues. Starting a creative writing course in January, and then
planning to go into a broadcasting program next fall.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, baking, bellydancing, writing fiction and poetry, acting,
learning languages, studying grammar, imitating people,
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm exotic-looking. People can't accurately pin a nationality on
me: I've gotten everything from Greek to Israeli, and a lot of
people have said I look like a gypsy. I'm really Polish-Jewish and

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
2. Love/sex/kink (these all go together for me; if you can't handle
that, I'm not for you)

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 the rest of my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reading, hanging out with friends, cooking some new dish, but
If, however, it is the first Friday of the month, then I will be
attending the local poetry slam. Sometimes I perform, most of the
time, I just have fun watching and listening.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My pancreas runs on AAA batteries, by which I mean I am a type-1
diabetic who proudly wears an insulin pump. It really helps to
manage my blood sugar much better than taking shots ever did, and I
feel like I have taken back control of my body.
