Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m an outgoing introvert with a tendency to spend too much time in
my own head. I’m happiest when I can spend time with friends, board
games, and soccer. I spent a couple years in Pennsylvania, and
learned that the green and blue of the Northwest can’t be beat.
While I enjoy going out from time to time, I tend to wind up with
plans consisting of “stuff and things” at someone’s place; it
usually winds up with board games or just chatting, with badminton
or frisbee when the weather’s nice.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just started pharmacy school in September, so a lot of my time is
spent trying to make sure I'm getting enough sleep and not losing
track of everything that needs doing, while somehow still doing
things to make me happy. Lots of juggling, but I'm starting to get
near a routine.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making time to do things I enjoy, while not letting the important
things slip (often). Also, remembering bizarre and random facts
that no one ever really needs to know (molecular weight of atomic
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
In general, I'm friendly, like to laugh, and can be a bit
competitive. I'm quick to forgive, quicker to offer help, slow to
forget, and slower to anger.
I was also told recently that I get a Stewie (Family Guy) lilt to
my voice when I'm frustrated with things. So apparently there's

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A good beer
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Plans for the next few years (things like housing and paying for
pharmacy school), and how to get back into old hobbies (swing
dancing, racquetball, biking) or turn some random outings I enjoy
into new hobbies (rock climbing, paddleboarding).
If I manage to get out of the more practical/hypothetical, I like
to think about science and philosophy. It rarely leads to any
profound thoughts, but I'm going to pretend that's more to do with
it being a one-sided discussion than anything else. At least I'm
only deluding myself with that one, right?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I try to hang out with friends, but busy weeks sometimes mean that
I'm recovering instead.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I thought I was Randy Johnson when I was 5. "But he's a lot taller
than you are..." "Yeah, but from a distance you can't tell!" 5 year
old me wasn't going to let logic get in my way!
Very little I'm actually embarrassed or uncomfortable sharing, but
plenty I don't offer without being asked.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You enjoy exploring board games, being on the water, or watching
and playing soccer. If you like all 3, so much the better (I'd say
hopefully not all at once, but I'd also be interested in exploring
how miserably that fails).
The only deal-breaker I have is smoking, and it's not a negotiable
issue. I have asthma, and cigarette smoke is about the only thing
that can (and does) routinely set that off, so I go out of my way
to avoid it.
