Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m totally fine with—
• Ditching yelp or google maps to explore a new city by foot
• Waking up early to work on a new story
• Tinkering with a new recipe in the kitchen
• Spending the evening at a concert
• Making things up as I go along, being a work in progress
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
At the moment, I’ve just finished my MA in Comparative Literature
but am now studying to become a user experience designer (I love to
write, but I need a day job too!)
Aside from work, I’m digging the internet for new music, reading
great books, and spending time with friends who make everyday
moments into little adventures.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Randomly picking the best thing on a restaurant menu.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Good conversation
2. Music to match my mood
5. My friends and family’s support (of course)
6. The internet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Stories, what makes people tick, what would happen if I just
decided to travel for a while…
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I like to go out to a new, fun bar or restaurant and see live
music, if I can. I enjoy going out with a group of people, but one
on one with close friends is awesome too.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a slightly embarrassing obsession with the Myers Briggs—I’m
an INFP :)
