I'm outgoing and love to laugh at myself (There's much to laugh at :P). I also tend to overuse emoticons when I text; it's true...
I don't take myself too seriously — a fact I hope was alluded to by my profile name. :)
I studied the sciences in college, and work for a FinTech firm in the Financial District, but am most passionate about writing, and I hope to write professionally one day. I enjoy reading, and also enjoy acting (acted in a student film in college though admittedly not since), singing, learning about different cultures, and I'm getting into baking/cooking.
I enjoy ballet, the opera, visiting museums, great food (from Michelin starred to street food), and watching theatre & musicals, but also enjoy working out (lifting heavy weights and putting them back down), motorcycling, and scuba-diving as well.
I love wine, cheese (YAAASS), and also enjoy whiskey and spirits (Mmm, Cognac and Calvados... ;)).
As I'm sure you already know, it's difficult to paint a picture of oneself when confined to this little box, so please feel free to write or IM me. I promise I'm not as humorless as my pictures would make me seem. ;)
p.s. I've been told that I look better in person. Especially when the lights are dim, many drinks have been had, and last call has been announced.
http://www.smbc-comics.com/ is great (http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?id=4066, http://www.smbc-comics.com/index.php?id=4129), but if you really want to get my sense of humor, check these out:
I'm a bit picky about movies but of newer films I loved: Nocturnal Animals, Moonlight, Requiem for the American Dream, The First Monday in May (I love beautiful things, what can I say? :P), Song of Lahore, Youth, Remote Area Medical, Tim's Vermeer, The Great Beauty, Blue Is The Warmest Color, The Sessions, A Single Man, True Grit, Blue Valentine, Waste Land, The September Issue, The Tree of Life, Miss Representation, After the Wedding, and The Artist (I tend to fast-forward through most movies. It's bad.). I also shamelessly admit to loving Love Actually. Groundhog Day's on point too.
I'll try any type of food twice (first reaction never counts).
I used to listen to a lot of Indie/Electro Rock, I'm now really getting into EDM, which I'm trying to learn to compose. Also. I love Purity Ring.
I enjoy plotless meandering novels.
I appreciate fashion, have enjoyed taking ballet classes in the past, and sometimes do yoga (though I mostly lift now).
Also, sometimes, I can't even.
Or if you're up for checking out wine bars/whiskey bars/dance/theatre/films/hole-in-the-walls/art events/fine dining/etc. in the city. I'd be happy to find a partner. :)
