My self-summary
Tall, ambitious, curious and happy

I have also been accused of being goofy, obsessed with staying fit and of having a great love for engaging in banter!

Since I can totally predict your next question - the happiest that I have ever been involved a bottle of scotch, a tent, my brother and a geyser in the middle of Iceland shooting steam into the open air...

I'm what you might call a 3rd culture kid having grow up in five countries across three continents....what this essentially means is that every time someone asks me where I'm from I start peeing my pants

I had originally asked my so called ‘friends’ to describe me, but their “honest” answers left much to be desired. Luckily, I also asked a few puppies to describe me – the most memorable ones were ‘woof woof rowrrr’ and ‘sniff sniff' followed by generous tail wagging’

The four letters that my entire being can be reduced to according to Miss Myers and Miss Briggs are ENFJ.
What I’m doing with my life
In this reality : I am a management consultant working long hours, racking up frequent flyer miles and saying absurd things confidently (e.g. “your company needs to diversify into making UFOs as the alien population is expected to increase by 1 alien in the next 20,000 years”)

In an alternate reality – I am the alien
I’m really good at
Making the meanest chai lattes in NYC

Stopping mid sentence and completely losing my chain of thought

Imitating the German accent without having ever been to Germany

Developing FOMO

Driving on the wrong side of the road – I blame the Brits who colonized (almost) every country I lived in

Looking very confused in my own neighborhood - (Is that really my building??? I thought it had a green door not a red one...)
The first things people usually notice about me
'You look like Mindy Kaling'
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some of the works of fiction I love are books by Murakami, Rushdie, Ishiguro, Salinger. Also Shantaram, Like water for chocolate, To kill a mockingbird....I could go on and on.
Non-fiction - books like freakanomics, thinking fast and slow, Is anyone even reading this?No seriously.., art of choosing, a brief history of time etc.

Music : All kinds and from different continents. I enjoy listening to AT40, just as much as much as I enjoy Amadou and Mariam or bollywood songs.

Shows : Suits, House, HIMYM, Friends, Big Bang theory, Scrubs, National Geographic specials

Food :Trying to be vegetarian of late and so far I've been reasonably successful (Food Inc scared me), other than that I love trying whatever is out there
The six things I could never do without
Family
A sense of purpose
A bunch of great friends
Music
Adventure
Anything sport/fitness related
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How many days to the new season of game of thrones?

Why do I always go in the wrong direction using Google maps even with the pointer supposedly pointing me in the right direction?

Do puppies know how cute they are?

Can I pull off the Donald Trump hairstyle?
On a typical Friday night I am
One tequila
Two tequila
Three tequila
Floor!

Sadly that was my 21 year old self, these days I'm most likely to ruminate about the past and use phrases such as 'When I was your age we had this thing called the 'telephone' '
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Before I take any important life decisions I always ask myself : "What would Justin Bieber do?"
Needless to say I owe a big debt to Sir Bieber….(that’s right I knighted him)
You should message me if

If the idea of a great conversation makes you happy
If you're the girl with the pearl earrings
If you know that there's no better city in the world than Nyc
If you'd like to?
