Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have the brain of a sexy librarian and the soul of an ass-kicking
I'm currently in a Ph.D. program, and like most grad students I'm a
professional nerd. There's more to life than geekery, though:
balance and variety are key. I especially like to spend time
outside, being active.
I'm a professional workaholic as well, but I like to think that
I've been redeemed by humor. Years of painstaking labor have
actually honed my appreciation for the ridiculous. Now
entertainment is the first thing I look for in a relationship --
whether we're out trying new things, or just staying in and being
Be warned: I'm strong-willed and independent. However, I'm also
stubbornly honest and tenaciously loyal. Everyday I try my hardest
to be a decent human being. Everyone should, in my opinion, and
that's the one thing I require in a friend.
So shoot me an e-mail if you're not a douche bag, and if you think
we could have fun together -- preferably by throwing on a pair of
sneakers and playing some ball, or hiking a mountain. If you're
willing to talk about Star Trek and Xena, that's a plus. But if
you're more inclined to laugh at them, that's all right too.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently a Ph.D. student. This means lots and lots of work and
coffee-guzzling...and procrastination. Preferred methods of
procrastination are: good conversation, working out, drinking beer,
eating out, hiking, reading trashy novels, and reading and writing
fanfiction. That's right. Fanfiction. I'm not ashamed.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing. For the moment, that means essays and research papers. I
have this fantasy that I'm really good at writing fiction too, and
one day I can run away to become a novelist. Also sports: I used to
be a college athlete. Now I use all that energy to stay in shape,
and to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible.
Is eating a skill? If so, then I'm an expert. Although my cooking
is a work-in-progress, I always appreciate a good meal --
especially in the company of friends.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I asked my friends this, and they said, "You're tall". They also
said, "You're a Mainer". Not sure what they meant by that one.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I believe that one of the keys to personal well-being is
adaptabilty. After all, no matter where you go, or what your
situation is, you have to take yourself with you. So I try not to
put prerequisites on my happiness. But I have to admit -- good
health, good company, good food, good coffee, and good beer all
help. A lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Frankly, a lot of it is purely fantastical and has little to do
with this plane of reality.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having fun, hopefully. I do like variety, so this could mean a lot
of things. Lately my friends and I have been having a weekly
classic movie night. I never thought I was an old movie fan, but I
think I'm being converted. Failing all else, there's always a Red
Sox game to watch.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

This is a tough one. There's not a lot about my life that I
consider terribly private. Now you're all wondering: is she that
innocent, or that shameless?
