My self-summary
So I'm in Philadelphia after about a 2 year stint in DC for graduate school. I'm excited to be back and am looking forward to enjoying all the things that I've missed over the last few years but am also curious to see what has changed. Just starting a new (demanding) job so it would be nice to meet people who would be up for light hearted fun--drinks, yoga, movies at the Ritz, walking around First Friday. I've really missed the delicious food here too, so let me know if anything new and worthy of trying opened up lately that I absolutely must try.
What I’m doing with my life
Working at a Fortune 500 as a Director of sorts and trying to do some good outside (and during) the hours of 8 to 8 (long days for this corporate girl)...and lots and lots of yoga.
I’m really good at
Backbends and memorizing credit card/phone numbers and people's birthdays...
The first things people usually notice about me
I've heard I'm easy to talk to, I don't know if that's something people usually notice first though...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Catcher in the Rye, Jane Eyre, White Teeth, The World According to Garp, Their Eyes were Watching God, The Bluest Eye, Interpreter of Maladies...I could go on...

Shows: The Daily Show, Homeland, Meet the Press, Mad Men
(FYI: I don't actually have a television)

Radio: (I added this category) This American Life, Wire Tap, BBC News Hour

Food: Most of it, as long as it's healthy and/or chocolate.
Six things I could never do without
Great fiction
My passport
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What to do tomorrow and/or my 5 year plan, it includes figuring out how to travel more, buying a house and going back to school to get a PhD...

Update: I just bought a place!
On a typical Friday night I am
At home cooking a healthy and delicious dinner or enjoying a night out with the girls...either way, with a great glass of red wine, usually malbec...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have been told by someone that he would kill himself if I didn't stop singing... so (although I don't believe it for a second), I'm apparently a terrible singer :(
You should message me if
You care about something...whatever it is, treat people well and have something more interesting to say than "hi" ... Also, if for some reason, you feel like you should probably message me.
The two of us
