Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Un-self-serious. Wonder-prone. Incurably dance-y.
I read like a demon; I love politics but won't ever run for office;
on a scale of one to ten I'm basically The Magnetic Fields. Hope
I'm pretty settled here, but I moved to Chicago from elsewhere.
So...um...keep that in mind? Does my status as a "transplant" make
me more dateable? I'm an exotic flower so message me already.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I graduated from a Master's Program at UChicago in December, and
right now I'm applying to PhD programs and working in the loop as a
procurement analyst. It's a pay-the-bills type gig: my passions lie
far afield from the realm of supply-chain analysis (believe it or
I have a strong friend-group that keeps me pleasantly busy outside
of work, and I spend the rest of my time savoring the simple
enjoyments of being a being.
Other than that, I'm reflective? (introspective, not shiny). I
devote some of my time and mental energy to examining why I feel
what I feel, think what I think, etc. It's my favorite pastime!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Shows: 30 Rock (duh), Parks and Rec (the early seasons), The

Food: I'm an adventurous eater! It's hard to find a cuisine that I
don't like. All vegetables (especially beets, eggplant and
zucchini). Most fruits (especially strawberries and mangos). Team
taco over team pizza.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1)a quiet place to live and
2)read my books;
3)knowledge of spring and
4)the possibility of walks;
5)my lucky chair,
6)my fancy, pin-striped pants
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The filibuster. The metaphysical implausibility of the everyday. My
own beliefs/emotions and what causes them. Other people's
beliefs/emotions and what causes them. Paradox. Paradox. Paradox.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Haunted by the memory of a typical Thursday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I was voted "most shy" in high school. Now I'm a social butterfly!
