Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I just moved to Philadelphia for work. I'm a hardy Midwestern gal
with Southern roots, so this place is... different. I'm
I'm goofy, weird, and awkward. You'll need a sense of humor and an
open mind. I'm passionate and outspoken, but I also love to listen
and learn. I am greedy for experience and laughter and sunshine and
cool nights and magical people, but I have also learned to
appreciate stillness and routine.
Life is an adventure, which sounds really cliche, but like
literally right now every day feels like a day on the Mississippi
River with Lewis and Clarke... except there's deodorant and a lot
of concrete, instead of smelly middle aged men in the woods.
Actually who am I kidding there's still smelly people and a fair
amount of wooded area (whaddup Wissahickon) but whatever.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work for a small non-profit and get to put my passion,
creativity, and wild ideas to good use. I travel a lot in the fall,
so I may be hard to catch.
I'm trying to ride bikes a lot more.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Mixing drinks and decorating my apartment. Telling stories. Eating

A life without cheese is a life I have no interest in.
I can't pin my tastes down to any particular style or genre of
music, but I can say this with absolute certainty: I don't trust
anyone who can sit still while listening to James Brown.
I can't pick a favorite book, ever. I usually enjoy YA. It's not a
book, but I love the Utne Reader. I really enjoyed the Song of Ice
and Fire series and will hardcore nerd-out about it if you want.
Harry Potter always and forever and ever amen. I enjoy a lot of
non-fiction, too. Biographies are fascinating. My favorites so far
has been Priscilla Presley and Eva Peron.
There is a pretty good chance I haven't seen most of the movies you
consider awesome, so don't be surprised when I say "oh, I haven't
seen that, but I'd love to." Things that come to mind: Pan's
Labyrinth, Harold and Maude, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,
Closer, Almost Famous, Romeo + Juliet, Stop Making Sense, The
Departed, Star Wars IV-VI, Francis Ha, O Brother Where Art
I don't have cable and haven't for many years, but I loved The Food
Network and HGTV. I really enjoy Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead,
The X Files, 30 Rock, House of Cards, Broad City, and American
Horror Story. If it's a political or crime drama, I'll probably
The six things I could never do without

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I can make the world a better place. Community. Fucking with
the status quo. Colors. Becoming a supervillain. Online dating as a
performance art piece.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Unwinding from the past week and wondering why in the Sam Hill

needs to be. Back home we keep our wine in the 24-hour grocery
store next to the cereal, where it belongs.
