Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I took some time off before finishing college to travel, and not to
sound too cliche, but to figure out what's really important to me.
I'm not sure I have it figured out now, but I have a much better
idea. I love long and lazy times with friends sharing a meal, and I
also really enjoy cultural events like museums, art shows
(particularly photography) and plays. On my own or with friends, I
like to go dancing, hiking, do yoga, or just get out of town for
the weekend and explore somewhere new.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
This past summer, I studied meditation at Tassajara Zen Mountain
Center as a participant in their work-practice program. I'm
currently working in clinical psychology in preparation for grad
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I really enjoy writing. I write on a story sharing website, I am
working on a long term project of writing a play, and I just
started a blog about different health topics. I'm also pretty good
at planning trips (something else I like to do!) and I'm interested
in interior design and decoration.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My friends say that I am a good listener, although I'm not sure if
this is the one of the first things people notice because I think I
talk a lot! People also tell me that I have good manners. I always
think this is really funny, because if you ask my mom (who grew up
in the south) they really could be improved upon... ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love Italian food. My favorite movie of all time is Vertigo,
filmed in my hometown, San Francisco. Right now, I'm really into
the Mad Men, mostly because it is so visually stunning (and plot
line is okay too!). I just saw the DJ Mark Farina a few nights ago,
and he was amazing. I have a lot of favorite books. My favorite
author is Tennessee Williams, and the best book I've read recently
was "God's Hotel," by Victoria Sweet. I thought her writing style
was eloquent and humble, and her contemplation of modern and
premodern medicine was really brilliant.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Travel! Yummy, healthy, fresh food. A comfortable bed. Good walking
shoes. My sunhat.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Health. And how to live a balanced life in modern society.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm not into the party scene anymore, although I was when I was
younger. I like to go out to dinner somewhere new and exciting, and
if my friends are down, out dancing after. But I also enjoy just
staying in, cooking, and watching a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I didn't get my drivers license until I was 21 because I failed the
driving test three times. Actually, its worse. I got three
automatic fails. Really. But it's a good story to share with you
all now! Just please don't hold it against me... ;)
