My self-summary
As a child I had an infatuation with Nancy Drew and wanted to be a detective. I also wanted to be a baker and a chemist. And my very first career aspiration was to work in an ice-cream place. Apparently somewhere along the way things changed, since I'm now getting my doctorate.

I grew up in England and Israel, moved to the US for college and have been here pretty much since then. I have a hard time fitting myself into neat little boxes, and have come to appreciate how that can be a positive thing.
What I’m doing with my life
I just returned to school, yet again. But this time I'm pretty sure it's the last time. I'm getting my doctorate in clinical psychology. I realize that may scare people away, but don't worry, I have no interest in psychoanalyzing you! (Well, maybe a little interest, but I'm going to try really hard not to!) Anyway, my focus is more on working with kids, so unless you're a really big five-year-old you're pretty safe!
I’m really good at
Making people laugh.

Spelling (usually).

Getting young children to feel comfortable (I realize that can sound really bad -- that's not what I mean!).

The first things people usually notice about me
My smile. Once i start talking - my accent.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love food. I have a very hard time thinking of anything that I don't like. But my favorites, if I had to choose, would be Thai, Mediterranean/Middle Eastern and chocolate (that is a cuisine, right?)

I like most kinds of music, sort of depends on the mood I'm in. Some favorites include U2, Coldplay, Sara Bareilles, and Regina Spektor.

Not sure I have a favorite movie (though I do have a slight obsession with 200 Cigarettes), and I have the embarrassing problem of being half way through a movie when I realize I've already seen it. Absolute favorite shows: Seinfeld and The Office.

I have a thing for really well-written literature, and will admit to being a bit of a snob when it comes to fiction. I don't think I have a favorite book or author but some of the books I've adored are The God of Small Things, The Master and Margarita, and Call it Sleep.
Six things I could never do without
chocolate, humor, good friends, yoga, really well-written fiction, hope
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If I'm thinking about big issues, then the terrible state of the education system in this country is my biggest preoccupation. On a smaller scale, I love thinking about why we are the way we are and why we do what we do (hence my choice of profession). And sometimes (well, often), I'm just thinking about what I need to do or what I'm going to eat for dinner.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having dinner and wine with friends, or relaxing from the week and saving my going-out energy for Saturday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I shoplifted when I was four years old.
You should message me if
You have a dry, witty sense of humor and can hold your own in a conversation; have things in your life you are passionate about; can talk about your feelings (sorry, I have to put it out there!); want to be healthy and fit, but are not fanatical about it; can live without a cellphone glued to your ear or hand; and are looking for a meaningful connection and relationship.
The two of us
