My self-summary
I love limes.

I try to be open-minded and willing to try new things. I like people who do the same.

I think my dog is awesome and you probably will too (if you like dogs). His name is Jesus. If that's offensive to you (in that you think it's blasphemous or something), we probably aren't a match. I'm mildly (aka completely) obsessed with dogs and like to stare at them on the street.

I like people who are witty. I have a very dry sense of humor. If your screen name is clever or a play on words, it makes me happy.

Hip hop has been my favorite type of music since I was a kid.

I'm an introvert, but that doesn't mean I'm shy.

I'd like to learn to love jogging. I don't aspire to run a marathon.

My education has been very important to me--but definitely hasn't taught me everything I know. Or even the most important things.

One of my favorite places to go is the aquarium.

I want to have conversations outside of what we did today, or what we're doing tomorrow. I'm not the most intellectual person on earth, but sometimes it's nice to look outside the bubble of your daily life.

I can be indecisive. I like someone who is take-charge without being forceful.

I'm adventurous like in food, drink, and travel. Not like skydiving.

I'm from Portland, OR. I think it shapes my viewpoint. I might want to end up back there. It's not in the Midwest, though a surprising number of people think it is.

I like change.

I'm not very sentimental and I don't like romantic comedies.

I have a terrible sense of direction. It's embarrassing.

I'm a word and grammar person, but not fanatical or annoying about it.

I don't mind doing the dishes. Especially if you cook.

I like lounges, rooftops, and dive bars about equally.

I can cook a little. I wish I could cook a lot more.

Ultra-conservative viewpoints are hard for me to stomach.

I'm very curious and don't like to accept just not knowing something. There's too much information available to claim ignorance most of the time.

This got really long.
What I’m doing with my life
I relocated to NYC several months ago and am an editor/writer for an association magazine.
I’m really good at
Conversation and being curious about things and people.
Making other people's writing clearer.
Remembering trivial facts.
Being diplomatic.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes? There's a pretty good chance that I'm wearing something jewel-toned.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Tacos, Mad Men, goat cheese, tea, Isabel Allende, sparkling water, Hemingway, Abbey Road, short stories, cocktails, David Sedaris, The Daily Show, some embarrassing shows on TLC/HGTV, Cee-Lo, plays and concerts (especially in small venues), modern fiction, Oregon Duck football, Big Boi, beer. It's all Frank Ocean right now.
The six things I could never do without
My iPhone (I thought this was bad, but apparently everyone feels this way)
Something to read
Periodic girls' weekends
Trees and green things (at least somewhere nearby)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm an over thinker and very curious, so a lot of things. How to achieve my best and happiest life. And happy hour.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a few drinks with friends or watching too many episodes of something on Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a weird and kind of gross cyst in my wrist that flares up and hurts occasionally, but I'm scared to get it removed.
You should message me if
