Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I hope everyone reading this understands that attempting to
encapsulate who you are in a good pithy tidbit for a bunch of utter
strangers is a wholly ridiculous endeavor. So, I'm just gonna go
for the brevity points here, because that is how I do.
Unapologetically progressive. Endearingly neurotic. Anally
disorganized. Penchant for excess.
I am silly, driven, and gregarious.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Strictly telling it like it is (and relatedly,
opening-mouth-and-inserting-foot). Laughing at high decibel levels.
Cooking spicy ethnic foods. Writing briefs on little sleep, fueled
only by caffeine, adrenaline, and mid '90s hip hop.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am tall (for an asian). And often loud (for an asian).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm not the type of person who rereads books and declares them a
"favorite." I also have too many movies to list. So, here's a
sampling of things I found good enough to list as representative of
I read Serious Eats and Lifehacker daily, Gawker hourly, and hit
refresh on NYTimes.com every few minutes. I read the Freakonomics
blog religiously -- I suppose you can't ever quite escape the
indoctrination caused by those first few years of college, and how
it can shape the way a young mind will think about the world.
I am a firm adherent to the 30 Rock and Arrested Development school
of humor (which in my opinion includes Community, The League, It's
Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and Party Down (RIP)). Being from
Boston, any movie whose title starts with an article and involving
non-rhotic accents is a win (The Town, The Fighter, The Departed).
I have watched the Big Lebowski more times than I can possibly
count, but I find Amelie endearingly sweet.
The last few concerts I've gone to involved the Roots, John Legend,
Jay Z, Big Boi, and the premiere of Zakir Hussain's Concerto for
Four Soloists. I am upset that Yeezus named his first born after a
navigational direction and nicknamed her after a seaweed, but it
could only be downhill after "hurry up with my damn croissants."
Shostakovich's Fifth is my favorite symphony, especially as
conducted by Leonard Bernstein. In fact, I like anything Leonard
Bernstein touched. Coworkers oftentimes will knock on my door at
the office to interrupt solo dance parties to the Glee soundtrack.
I feel no shame in writing that statement.
I love all types of hole-in-the-wall ethnic food but also save up
to go to fancy-schmanzy restaurants (and managed to get into
Momofuku Ko randomly in NYC - take that, Frank Bruni).
I bake some mean pumpkin cookies.
I wear a white and hot pink plastic-and-rubber watch with my skirt
suits. A boss recently asked me if it was a Hello Kitty watch. I
smiled and told him to eff himself.
“If God made butter it would taste exactly like bone marrow.” -
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(1) Down comforters on chilly days
(2) Iced coffee on toasty days
(3) iPad on travel days
(4) Working out every few days
(5) Bacon on Sundays
(6) gChat every day
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Who I can convince to travel to Bhutan with me.
