My self-summary
Just moved back from NYC after finishing grad school. I am a reader, NPR listener, stand-up comedy fan, and am obsessed with finding new music to listen to repeatedly.

I'm into humor and good storytelling. My friends make me repeat my embarrassing stories all the time. There are many. If a guy is funny, witty and intelligent I will be 1000x more likely to find him attractive.

In my free time I love to travel (last trip: Morocco, next trip: Iceland??), try out new recipes, find an excuse to be outdoors or obsessively watch comedy clips online.

I'm looking for someone to go do fun things with and explore the city. Things people tend to enjoy about me are that I'm understanding, caring, funny, helpful, smart and a good communicator. Things people have struggled with about me include that I'm super honest about my opinions, I have high expectations of myself and others and that I am allergic to avocados so I totally won't split the side of guac with you.

I really enjoy life, like most of the people I meet, and have a strong sense of myself. I'm open-minded and love people for their quirks. A few of mine: I say the word definitely all the time, I annoy people with how often I bring up This American Life, I know an ungodly amount of song lyrics, I wash the dishtowels more often than is warranted, oh, and I definitely have a dirty sense of humor and I cuss...definitely.
What I’m doing with my life
Helping people access healthcare. Thinking up comedy bits even though I don't perform stand-up. Forcing other people to watch videos of my niece.
I’m really good at
Making people laugh, listening, taking care of people when they get sick, making plans with people, suggesting books/comedians/songs that people will love, throwing dinner parties, playing board games and packing for camping trips.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: My favorite authors are Kurt Vonnegut and John Irving. I read a lot and go through phases, but my love for those two never wanes.

Movies: I have several movies that I've watched a disgusting number of times. I watch Amelie when I'm feeling down, Ever After when I'm feeling romancy, Anchorman when I want to laugh at the same jokes for the 100th time, Young Frankenstein and/or Blazing Saddles when I'm feeling silly and Cinderella when I'm sick.

Music: I love going to music festivals, concerts and listening to All Songs Considered on NPR to learn about new bands. A small sampling of my favorites: The Weepies, Bon Iver, Amos Lee, Ben Folds, Tegan and Sara, Elliott Smith, Hozier, Echosmith, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Chet Faker, Kate Nash, Florence + the Machine and Metric.

Food: I tend to be a pretty adventurous eater but of course I have my favorites. My mama's spaghetti always makes me happy, my spicy vegetable couscous is pretty worthwhile, and my housemate makes a chicken chili that I would fight a racoon for.
Six things I could never do without
A good book, my laptop, my sweet supportive family, alone time, my hilarious friends and traveling.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-Social justice and intersectionality

-Which comedian did the bit I have stuck in my head
