Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
How's it going, stranger?
I’m from Philadelphia, born and raised (Not really, I was born in
China but immigrated when I was a baby – close enough).
I studied Neuroscience in Pittsburgh, and minored in music, and I'm
currently living in Philadelphia.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently working at a small drug company. In my spare time, you
can find me volunteering at a small family clinic, where I get to
practice my Chinese, and at the Philly VA Medical Center, where the
staff are abnormally friendly. If you ever go to war, these guys
are something to look forward to.
Occasionally I enjoy harassing my friends to go watch movies or
eat. Or sleeping. Naps are the best.
I'm basically trying to be this guy (cause I'm applying to medical
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...solving puzzles and figuring things out. I’m also pretty good at
playing the viola, hitting a mid-range jump shot, staying awake
long into the night for gaming / Netflix / anime marathons, and
eating large quantities of food in one sitting.
I've also been told that I'm a very good listener. :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
...is how tall I am for an Asian. And then they ask if I play
basketball. To which I of course respond yes. Then they make some
sort of comment about Yao Ming, to which I smile or laugh. Guys
that watch the NBA sometimes mention other asian basketball
players, which actually impresses me. I suppose we could skip that
during our first conversation :). Or not, if you prefer.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
– Ender’s Game, Jurassic Park (way better
than the movie), A Thousand Splendid Suns, Don Quixote
– Inglourious Basterds, Toy Story 3, Good
Will Hunting. I'm pretty into animated movies, so anything Disney,
Pixar, or Miyazaki is a win in my book.
– Breaking bad, The Wire, Attack on
– Dubstep, Pop, Classical. *I like a wide
variety of music – though usually only 1 or 2 songs from any
– I eat anything that tastes good lol. I
dream of being a food critic some day. Not a very picky eater.
Though I do love a good cheesesteak. And gotta love Chinese food.
And indian food. I could go on but you get the idea haha.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-Alarm Clocks, since I would never be able to wake up before noon
-That black cat that’s always wandering around my house making me
wonder whether black cats are really unlucky or not. He/she’s kinda
-Google Navigation on my phone
-My 2 GB iPod shuffle, with each song personally selected
-The riddles of the universe (What happens to something that enters
a black hole?!?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...the brain – I studied it for 4 years and still don’t know how it
...NBA stats and player movement for fantasy basketball during the
year. Go Sixers!
...thought provoking Reddit threads.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
… either hanging out with friends at a bar or someone’s place
causing some sort of mischief, or playing video games
overcompetitively. I could also possibly be watching a new show on
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
During a school trip in middle school, I lost a binder full of
pokemon cards which I collected over at least 2 years. Probably the
worst mistake of my adolescent life. I was a sad little boy for a
while after that. Damn it all - it was probably worth one or two
hundred dollars at least.
