Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I just finished my master's in arts in education. I mostly write
poetry, but I'm also fascinated by visual art, because I love how
it brings me to a place without language. As a blind person, I am
reliant on words, so it's really nice to be liberated from them
every once in awhile, and realize just how insufficient they really
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I got a fellowship through Harvard this summer, and I'm hoping that
by the end of it, I'll be able to think like an engineer. (My
natural tendency is to think like a poet, which means that I
overcomplicate *everything* and am incapable of staying on one
topic). I'm also undertaking the exhilarating/terrifying/humbling

Help your potential matches find common interests.
My taste in literature is exceedingly contemporary. As for movies,
the Piano was one of my favorites. Please don't ever suggest that
we watch "Before Sunrise"; that movie is boring as fuck.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Magic, spontaneity, wide open spaces, warmth, balance, tea, the
smell of the ocean. That was seven, but arbitrary rules are
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why there are never enough noodles in pad see ew.

You have more exciting things to ask me then, "How do you access
this site?" The answer is Googleable and only marginally
interesting. (Though if you want to geek out about text-to-speech
and web accessibility standards, I'm your girl. I have this secret
techy side that I surprise myself with sometimes.)
