My self-summary
If you're not a fan of building forts on the weekend, laughing until breathing becomes an issue, eating ice cream for breakfast once in a while, or shooting pool for bourbon, then you should stop here.

Born in Ukraine (technically, the USSR, but are ya really gonna call me out on that?), moved to New England, grew up with fantastic friends, really active and involved from everything to Scrabble Club to tennis and lots of other random things. Went to Boston University, lived in Sydney, and just an overall, really lucky life. My experiences have made me grounded, while also so excited about my future - love spontaneous adventures, traveling, and people who challenge me.

People fascinate me, so give it a shot. I'll find something great about anyone.
What I’m doing with my life
Social worker for foster care kids, court advocate, policy writer to combat gender violence, and the sole female bartender in my favorite Irish pub.
I’m really good at
laughing at myself, eating home-made food that others make, unknowingly befriending notorious Australian surf gangs on a rainy pub day, reading, charades, amping everyone up for trivia nights at pubs/boozy brunches/live shows, hanging out with kids, watching lots of movies on a rainy day, getting lost, and being happy.

Most recently: educating my friends at happy hour with all the ridiculous terms the kids these days use (still shocked from the "watermelon seeds" Beyoncé was referring to).
The first things people usually notice about me
I immediately act like everyone I meet is my best friend. Usually makes for a good time, except when I got bit by a Rotweiler when I was three.

Oh, about once a week I'm told that the show New Girl is based on me. You decide if that's good or bad for you.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Big reader. The Little Prince is hands down my favorite, followed by mostly anything by Bradbury. Tao Te Ching, Curious Incident Between the Dog and the Night Time, The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Norweigan Wood - on a big Marukami kick lately. Always into suggestions :)

Mostly comedies, documentaries, sappy Indie films that make you appreciate life and want to become a hipster, pick up a guitar, and run away with your soulmate. Chasing Amy is probably the movie I could watch over and over again.

I can appreciate any music when the artists are enjoying themselves... Some good old blue grass, funky soul, Latin, or anything that makes me feel good inside, that's the best. I do love me some offensive rap though, especially while pulling all-nighters for exams.
Six things I could never do without
French Vanilla Iced Coffee,
Pen/paper/stamps (I cheated, it's one thing),
Sunday Brunch,
Twix bars,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
why Friends had to end, my goals, how to ensure that happiness of the ones I love, how New York dogs have a particular prance, where the next place I can travel to is, why I day dream so much.
On a typical Friday night I am
eating, drinking, talking, breathing, dancing, laughing. Sometimes, I do all of these things simultaneously. Seriously, try me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I just ate half a tub of hummus and I hate shopping without a mission.
You should message me if
you're genuine, are a night owl, wouldn't mind calling out of work for a random road trip outside the city, and don't mind smiling. If you've got a puppy, you could substitute that for one of the previous.
The two of us
