Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This is usually the part where someones says that they're not
really good at describing themselves. It just so happens that
you've stumbled upon the profile of the best self-summarizer in the
whole damn world.
The story of our intrepid hero begins on a brisk autumn day in
Western New York. Some stuff happens in between my birth and now. I
moved to Florida. At some point I decided I liked being not broke
more that I like blissful, wonderful balmy weather so I moved back
up north. So here I am back up north freezing to death like some
kind of ice yeti.
It's not all bad though. I am super pumped about warmer weather
because I am going to make the most of it this summer. I've amassed
a collection of hiking gear during the winter and I am going to put
it good use in the spring and summer. I am preparing myself for
snow adventures next winter.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Despite my best efforts to remain a drain on society, it turns out
I like buying things more than I liked being a hipster.
I manage apartments. Like a boss.
Planning my next hike.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My job. Coming up with fun ideas for things to do. (I'm getting my
black belt in groupon.)
Have you ever been to a Roller Derby match?! BAM! I just did
The Wobble. (ok not really but it's soo much fun.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I wear my heart on my sleeve. It's actually kind of gruesome.
People have told me that it grosses them out and that they would
rather I wore my internal organs, internally.
My coworker just told me my eyes looks like Jake Gyllenhaal's. I
was all like oooh dreamy. But then they added "... in

Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love, heart, love, <3 any book that is set on an island in the
South Pacific. Every summer I read Sex Lives of Cannibals. My copy
is full of sand and the sun has melted the glue that has a lot of
pages together and it is the best.
I am currently having a love affair with memoir-esque books about
thru-hiking the various long trails in the US. I read Wild because
I loved the movie and I haven't been able to stop.
Music - The White Stripes. Tegan and Sara. Neutral Milk Hotel. Ben
Folds. Modest Mouse. David Bowie. Nirvana. Regina Spektor. And
basically anything Jack White does. (Except the Dead Weather. That
wasn't my cup of tea.)
Super excited because I bought tickets to see Reel Big Fish and
Less Than Jake in June!
Podcasts - My Brother, My Brother and Me; Throwing Shade; Serial;
Savage Lovecast, Filmspotting.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Lets assume that everyone puts friends, family, their phone and
chapstick in here and those are your freebees and don't count
toward your six.
Chicken Wings, Baked Goods, my hater blockers, french fries (At
this point, I've come to the realization that I shouldn't make a
list while hungry.)
Nook, this really comfortable pillow I have.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why "bacon" is sometimes still a thing. Listen don't get me wrong
bacon tastes great. But it's no better or worse than other
I was baffled as to why bacon became this punchline as the greatest
thing ever in the history of ever.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't understand why people put KCCO on their profile. I know
that it's theChive's catchphrase but what is it supposed to
indicate in your profile. Maybe my acronym should be IGTBCIDKWTF.
You should message me if

Any of these things sound a-peel-ing.
Apples. (I make myself laugh, if no one else.)
Gunstock. Like everything there during the summer.
Crazy New England Bowling. (Apparently it's called candlepin
