My self-summary
Just a girl, searching okcupid, trying to find her own Ron Swanson.

Or if you wanted a real bio, I'm a Boston transplant, in the city for 3 a half years now, and still loving it (minus the T on a crowded morning). I love trying new things - beers, restaurants, traveling, etc.. and would place myself in the same "fun loving, care-free" bucket that almost everyone on here uses.

I'm from Rochester NY originally, so that makes me an upstate girl at heart. This means I'm not afraid of nature, cold weather, or bad sports teams.

Other than that, I'm a little bit all over the place. I've gotten really into running, love trying new beers at new bars, hosting game nights, or even going out dancing if I'm really embracing my inner 22 year old.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in marketing for a software company. Yes, this means I wear jeans to work and "play online" all day... I wouldn't have it any other way.
I’m really good at
Goofing around, urban hiking, writing snappy lines in 140 characters or less, and beer tasting (if that is even a skill?).
The first things people usually notice about me
I have super curly hair, which seems to be an attention getter.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love tons of music to say the least. Spotify has become a staple of my day. Currently into Lorn Huron, St. Lucia, Ben Howard, The 1975, Little Comets, Bon Iver, Walk the Moon, Frightened Rabbit, CHVRCHES, the Bleachers, Fleetwood Mac and anything/everything from the 90s.

I love Harry Potter (nerd alert), Kurt Vonnegut, Chuck Palahniuk, and and the occasional chick-flick-esque book. Just finished A Visit From the Goon Squad and The Imperfectionists, both of which were pretty decent.

I've gotten into Game of Thrones and there's no looking back. I'm also a sucker for 30-Rock (RIP), Newsroom, Parks and Rec, House of Cards, Pawn Stars, Chopped, and How I Met Your Mother, although I'm not super picky. I'll watch any movie once, and honestly don't have a "favorite" genre.

As for favorite foods... Dessert: Ice cream, Dinner: Pizza. I swear I'm not a 5 year old and do like more "sophisticated" dishes as well - seafood stew, a good mango chutney, enchiladas, you name it. I put Cholula hot sauce on about anything.
The six things I could never do without
- My phone & computer, sad but true
- Running sneakers, New Balance if we're being specific
- Friends to keep me sane, and family to do the opposite
- Craft beer (from IPAs to stouts, I love em all)
- Spotify all day every day
- Coffee, the more the merrier
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How much I wish I had a dog (and a roof deck).

Why every guy on here has at least one picture of them on top of a mountain...
On a typical Friday night I am
Wishing it were a Saturday night so that I'd have more energy?

Fridays are usually pretty calm, a few drinks with friends/coworkers or a night in are fine by me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I own the Planet Earth DVD set... who doesnt love a good nature show?

Also, I kinda want to go one a date with someone from here who I have a 10% or less comparability rating with just to see if we'd break out into a karate fight or something.
You should message me if
You think breakfast food is acceptable for any meal, have a great new beer bar to recommend, can nerd out over marketing with me, or just want to say hi.
