Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to explore my creative side by doing ceramics. I really like
taking pottery classes and I've met and learned from a lot of cool
talented people. Though I consider myself a beginner because there
is so much to learn. I also try to exercise Several days per week.
It's part of my attempt to improve my energy level. I'm also
changing my diet, cutting down on junk food at home and out (and
increasing vegetable and protein in my diet). When I go weeks
without exercise, my energy tends to flatline, so currently I try
to exercise daily at the gym. Also, I like to take long
I grew up in Baltimore(Pikesville) and later graduated from Towson
University with a degree in history, and currently work at Johns
Hopkins University in the library field and live in Charles
A few other things I enjoy doing are going to museums, attending
free festivals in the summer, playing softball, watching movies,
rooting for the Ravens and Terps and walking to the farmer's market
in Waverly on Saturday mornings.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Being open to trying new things, having fun, battling my natural
social anxiety and shyness by going out a whole lot more. I work
9-5 at an academic library. I like to exercise and take pottery
classes in the evening. I don't eat shellfish or non-kosher meat.
Otherwise I am up for trying new things (food or non-food related).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Juggling, ceramics, parallel parking (improved a lot in 2014).
Thank you Charles Village! Seriously.

Help your potential matches find common interests.
(Update to include first half of 2015). I'll give you my favorites
from the past year. Some were released prior to 2014.
Book: A walk in the woods (Bill Bryson). An educational report on
the state of the Appalachian trail in the mid-1990's, and a silly
buddy adventure story rolled into one. The Buried Giant by Kazuo
Ishiguro for 2015.
Movie: A tie between The Fault in our Stars and Guardians of the
Galaxy for 2014. I'm a big fan of John Green. While I usually don't
go for marvel movies, Guardians was just so much fun. And Mad
Max:Fury Road for 2015.
T.V. Show: Tie between The Tonight Show and Portlandia. I really
like what Jimmy Fallon has done with the show. Portlandia is my
favorite satire of hipster culture. Orphan Black for 2015.
Music: Blunderbuss by Jack White. Technically released three years
ago, it's the album I listened to the most (and for the first time)
in 2014. It's a Terrible World, It's a Beautiful World by The
Decemberists in 2015.
Food: Tie between ice cream from The Charmery in Hampden and french
fries from Le Garage also in Hampden. Falafel from vendor (sorry I
don't know the name) at Waverly farmer's market in 2015.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Exercise, creativity, social interaction, books, food, and a water
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How quickly time flies, and how slowly it seems to move at present.
Also I think about the Harry Potter meetup group of which i am a
member and any upcoming activities/events they have planned. When
am I exercising, taking yoga, or jogging next? I'm new to jogging
and exercising on a routine basis. I've been taking pottery classes
for over a year. I think a lot about what to make at the studio.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
at home or at my parents house for friday night dinner. Maybe stay
home and watch something on netflix afterwards or go out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
a squirell got into my apartment and peed on my couch in January.
