My self-summary
I'm an urbanist. I enjoy good conversation, sunshine, pastries, walking, and I love cats (yep). I make a lot of mordant remarks when I'm comfortable and tend to be quiet when I'm uncomfortable. I have a bit of a Napoleonic complex, but I am disquieted by compliments. Most of my friends are guys. I don't know how to drive and the thought of it scares me; same thing with swimming.

My mentor, who probably knows me better than anyone, called me the following:
"self-depricating ironic feminist type"
"short, brown and opinionated"
What I’m doing with my life
I work at a CDC in Harlem and I'm getting my MA in urban planning. Other than that:
Drinking coffee, reading, writing
Making eye contact with strangers on the train
Coffee/drinks/food and conversation with friends
Going to talks, events, etc.
I’m really good at
Apparently, not taking shit from anyone
Projecting my voice
Bruising the banana/peach/avocado I brought into work
Accidentally staring off into people's crotches on the train
The first things people usually notice about me
My height. And sometimes, that I am "sassy".
Oh, and lipstick.

What I should write next
The future~
On a typical Friday night I am
Half of the time I'm reading or working on a project; the other half I'm out with friends.
You should message me if
you can engage in conversation.

That sounds mean, but 90% of the messages I get are from people who think that "hi :)" or "How was your day?" or a compliment is enough to warrant a response. I am, more than anything else, interested in conversation.

That also sounded a little mean. Oh well.
The two of us
