Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a 26 year old Brooklyn
resident -- born and raised
here! I love NYC
everything about it. I'm a nice person to those I like, but I'm
very selective about who I like. I'm very generous when I have
enough to give. I can be judgmental, but also understanding. I
don't have a lot of patience, really for anything, but especially
for stupidity. I'm funny, if you find sarcasm funny. I do. I'm in a
committed relationship with my boyfriend, Eric, which is going on 6
and a half years now, and we've lived together for over 4 and a
I am thoughtful, neurotic, and trustworthy
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a graduate student in social psychology at NYU. I spend my time
doing research, analyzing data, and writing up papers. My
dissertation is taking up most of my attention now. In other news,
I'm also an aspiring author. I'm working on my first book, which
is, I suppose, horror/fantasy.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
English -- writing
least I hope I'm good at that. Directions -- and being drunk
actually improves my sense of direction, to a point. Thinking

stats better than TAing for it. Keeping plants alive.
The first things people usually notice about me

That really depends on the context. At work, people notice that I'm
quiet and really like my iPod. At social gatherings, people notice
that I'm sarcastic, and after a few drinks can't shut up, for
better or worse.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Eric, my friends, my family, my laptop, my brain, laughter.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Do you really want to know? Well, okay. I'll tell you *some* of
what I think about. I think about things that have happened
recently, and things that are happening soon. I think about what I
want my life to look like in ten years. I think about things I can
do to make my life look more like that vision. I think about what
it would be like to hear one person I don't know say they liked my
book. I think about my book, and the characters in my book, and the
things they do, and why they do them. I think about situations to
put them in, and how the plans of their nemesis-of-the-moment will
unfold. That's all you get.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At a club, or hanging out with friends, or hanging out with friends
