Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A photon checks into a hotel and the bellhop asks him if he has any
luggage. The photon replies “No, I’m traveling light.”
Hey-o! Good one, no? There’s plenty more where that came from – by
which I mean I know about 3 more jokes. So, I'll need you to tell
Anyways, I live up north, in the land of 30-somethings, beards and
craft beers. sI am equally happy discussing books, podcasts,
politics, as well as video games, funny childhood memories, best
SNL sketches, and Mystery Science Theater.
My new favorite thing to talk about is the Cascadia subduction zone
and the inevitable annihilation of the west coast.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I moved to Chicago from Hawaii 11 years ago, which is insane. 11
years! That’s longer than high school and college combined.
Anyways, I work for a wonderful international organization that
allows me to travel to fun places from time to time. I do love this
job, but am considering how I may improve and expand my career, so
am considering a potential job change in the near future…
I work out, pretend to be a runner, drink red wine and craft beer,
and pet strangers' dogs on the street. Going out to dinner is my
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The analytical section of the GRE, insight and introspection,
remembering the lyrics of 90's rap songs, finding my friends in
large crowds or at the beach and navigating public transit in any
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm sure people do notice me sometimes, but from time to time I’ll
have a day where people keep bumping into me, cars nearly run me
over, the automatic doors won’t open for me, which prompts me to
think I might be involved in some kind of Sixth Sense situation….
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am going to follow the lead of my dear friend, who recently
shared her profile with me, to say - this stuff doesn't really
matter all that much. Basically, I care that you read (maybe not
Atlas Shrugged as your favorite book) and like music (maybe not
Nickelback). And love food. Other than that - it's all good.
I'll keep my responses brief:
Books: I love reading – I have a list of books on hold at the
library at all times. I just finished Gone with the Wind and am
ashamed by how much I liked it despite the terrible, rampant
Movies: Bamboozled, Kill Bill, Mean Girls, Pitch Perfect, Eyes on
the Prize documentary series.
Music: I miss the 90’s for the music alone. I am the worst with
keeping up with current music. Maybe this is a skill of yours? Or
we can try to navigate the complicated world of cool new music
Food: This list is far to extensive to type out.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Family and friends
2. Public radio - except for Prairie Home Companion. Wtf is
honestly going on with that show?
3. Those studies that say intelligent people drink more
4. Open mindedness and attempts at general kindness
5. Public Libraries
6. People who write “press button, receive bacon” on hand dryers in
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what comes next, how and why the past matters, and how to stay
grounded in the present. When I’m stressed out, doing math in my
head and making lists calms me down. What movie I should be
watching and what book I should be reading.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
This varies! Often after a long week it might just be the gym and
dinner with friends in the neighborhood, other times it might be
trying the new local brewery or some random event.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I hate fruit. I hate it so much. I hate when someone brings it to a
party and everyone gets really excited. Honestly. This is supposed
to a party, people.
Also, I'm supremely terrible at Wheel of Fortune. Impressively bad.
You should message me if
