Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
When writing this I sat staring at the screen for about 20 minutes
trying to come up with something to write that wasn't terribly meta
about online dating and writing self summaries. That is something
that actually says something about who I am.
I've spent the last eight years living in New York and it's the
longest I've ever spent in any one place. Growing up my parents did
environmental development, so I have lived on three continents and
I have traveled to over a quarter of the world's countries. I have
and immense appreciation for how lucky I am to have seen so much of
the world and hope to see more of it yet (travel buddies always
bleeding heart liberal, and not afraid to use the word "feminist"
to describe myself. Spending my teens in Sweden had a large effect
on my social consciousness.
My #1 activity is probably just hanging out with people, exploring
the city, and talking about silly things, like what is the
etymology of "duck"?

Anyone who really likes Catcher in the Rye is screwed on this site.
Whenever I see someone who lists it and/or other high school books,
like To Kill a Mockingbird, etc, I assume they haven't read since
My all time favorite book is The Little Prince. Not because it's
very complicated, but because it makes a lot of sense.
I read a lot. Dirty pleasures are Lovecraft, Terry Pratchett,
William Gibson. I read stuff like that when I don't feel like
thinking too much. I try to read every other book with something
that forces me to grow, think, and feel a bit. it can be hard to
properly digest something that changes you as a person. Lately I've
been reading William S Burroughs and a few ethnographies.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
We all need food and water. We all go insane without human contact.
So I'll not include those in my list.
3. Being jacked into the net
5. Scheduled time for working out at least every other day
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Etymology. Sometimes you can track the evolution of an idea through
history just by looking at the way a word is used. Where did the
ideas in your head originate and why?
Silly pop trivia. Like my theory that it's actually the goblins in
the Harry Potter universe that keep the wizard population from
taking over the normal world. They control the wizard economy, so
they have the most to gain. Or maybe the catholic church is run by
How people work, and why they work.
Naked people. Food. Good naps. More food and naked people.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
A list of my last few Friday activities. For science.
Feb 20: Got stoned for the first time in a year and looked at the
stars in the Caribbean night sky.
Feb 13: Friday the 13th. Took one if my best friends to a spa and a
great dinner. Then went home, took half a Xanax and slept for 14
Feb 6: Went to a lesbian erotica reading. Then drank scotch and
played fishbowl with a group of friends.
Jan 30: Flew to Dallas because I had never been to Texas. Shot
guns, hung out in McMansions, and helped a new friend shave her
Jan 23: Had dinner with by brother, my cousin, and the first really
close friend I made in New York. We had tequila, and tacos. Then
beers at my favorite dive bar. My old boss showed up and we had a
Jan 16: It's rather fuzzy. I remember lots of martinis and some
burlesque. The next day's hangover on the other hand is firmly
planted in my memory.
Jan 9: Friend's birthday. He likes beer and dancing, so we drank
beer and danced.
Jan 2: Still recovering from New Years and jet lag. Seamless and
Netflix. I discovered Always Sunny in Philadelphia and watched all
Dec 26: Old friend's birthday in Stockholm. Lots of mead and
Dec 19: Day drinking in Paris. Gave a new friend moral support
while she flashed Paris from the Eiffel tower.
Dec 12: Day drinking and 8 hour walk in London. Touristy
Dec 5: "Day" drinking in Iceland hostel. Too fucking cold and dark
to walk around for more than an hour. Roomed with Australians and
gained a new appreciation for the word cunt.
Apparently I drink a lot on Fridays (and when I travel). The rest
of the days I'm usually boringly at the gym at 7AM.
