My self-summary
I used to work at a vocational boarding school for delinquent teens. I finished school with a degree in Political Economy, which I've discovered is next to useless in the working world. Apparently employers see political economy, and think "Marxist." So I went back to school for tech stuff, and now work downtown for a company you've probably heard of.

Oh yeah...I guess I should mention I wasn't born in the states. I was born in then-Yugoslavia and came to the states when I was five. My fobbie parents insisted that I speak our native tongue at home, so to this day I haven't been properly acculturated.
What I’m doing with my life
I taught at-risk youth for a few years at boarding school for the troubled. Now I work for a growing company you've probably heard of downtown. I have a few sides projects I'm developing too. I also find myself doing a lot of yoga lately (urban flow).
I’m really good at
Talking my way out of predicaments.
The first things people usually notice about me
maybe you should ask them. If pressed, I'm guessing they might say the flower bearers who follow me everywhere and sprinkle rose petals in my path. or maybe the castrati who precede me with song wherever I go.

this question is terrible.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: So many to list here....reading's probably my favorite pastime...so much so that sometimes i think i chose the wrong career. I was the immigrant kid who had no friends and learned about america through Bukowski and Fante and Dos Passos. Also love the works of Rebecca West--amazing mind.

The six things I could never do without
the ten minutes of reading the news on my iphone in the morning where I hold it super close to my face because I haven't put my contacts on.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how i can help my sister get her first job (she has an ms in library science). she's having trouble networking, so i've been trying to network for her, which basically means chatting up librarians and inquiring about openings. also traveling. I love a good trip to somewhere I've never been before. I prefer places where I am the only tourist. Favorite cities: berlin, naples, st. petersburg, new york, rio de janeiro, new orleans, cairo, odessa, los angeles. Future places to visit: iran, ethiopia, armenia, japan, burma.
On a typical Friday night I am
I like to go out with a few friends, usually for a meal and then a bar for some drinks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've gotten really good at positioning my roommate's toothpaste just so on the sink, so he never knows I use it.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 23–35
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends
You should message me if
You're wondering whether or not to message me.

You watch the film "Mallrats" once a month.

Sort of kidding. Mostly I'm looking for people who are smart and aware and are interested in the world and other people. This can manifest in many ways, from genuinely caring about someone's perspectives and experiences, to being well read and travelled and eager to learn more.

Also, I would say not taking yourself too seriously...though I'm never really sure what other people mean when they say that. For me it's sort of like getting over yourself, being patient and generous with others and understanding that they often don't mean to cause offense.

Any one of the following would also be awesome:

1. You enjoy food and aren't a very picky eater. I eat out a lot and really love trying to new foods. You don't have to be a foodie, (though I definitely have been called that many times), but you should at least be open to the idea of new foods. Also--I have an idea for a new food review website for the mission; looking for a food lover to help me get it off the ground.

2. You enjoy reading.

3. You like watching the wire, breaking bad, etc. basically you appreciate the golden age of tv!
