Teach for America brought me to NYC via Rhode Island (born, raised, and obsessed) and New Jersey (undergrad- don't hate), and I've been here for 4 years so far!
I like to think that I am a very honest and genuine person; you'll always know where you stand with me. I can also be a pretty big nerd sometimes, especially if I am talking about a topic that I love! I am a poster Virgo, so if you really want to get a quick analysis of me, just Google that.
I really like it when someone is intelligent, driven, genuine, and able to make me laugh. Personality is big for me, and being able to hold a conversation and keep me interested is really important. Also, kindness goes a long way. The whole being a good human deal.
Trivia, especially involving any kind of history/political/geography type topic.
Being the Ice Climbers and still managing to almost always win in Super Smash Brothers.
Polishing off large portions of food at restaurants. I don't really do doggy bags....
Movies: This is very hard, because my range of movie preference is pretty wide. Horror is usually a go, and Will Ferrell is definitely a no. Documentaries can be just as appealing as a cheesy rom-com, depending on my mood.
TV: SVU, OITNB, Shameless, Golden Girls, The Office, Parks and Rec, Will and Grace, The West Wing, Scandal, True Life, House of Cards, Wifeswap, MDL:NY, RuPaul's Drag Race, Political News Shows.
Music: I really wish I had a more sophisticated taste in music, but I pretty much will listen to everything besides very heavy metal and very twangy country. Most of my preferences are within the Hip Hop and Top 40 genres. Anything I can dance to is good enough for me.
Food: I really like to eat healthy, but other than that I am not picky at all; I'll eat anything. I really like Italian, Japanese, and Thai food, and I love to try new things.
2. Time to think
3. Cell phone
6. Access to political news, whatever the type (cable, papers, etc..)
*chapstick deserves at least an honorable mention*
I also think about a lot of the heavy social and political topics, so it's always a good time in my head.
Ok, I'll give you something. I still miss my favorite green winter coat I had when I was 10. My Mom made me get rid of it (*read: donated it to charity when I wasn't home*). RIP.
