My self-summary
Is this the section where I'm supposed to make profound statements about my purpose in life? O well. I'm a shy, somewhat neurotic girl until you get to know me, at which point I become a sociable, neurotic girl who loves to argue and talk endlessly during movies. I embrace all forms of social awkwardness and nerddom, especially those of which I have no prior knowledge (hey, I'm a quick learner :)). But for now, I'm on my newest obsessions of science fictions shows, drawing, and learning the flute.

Also, I'm political. Not refuses to ever listen to a different opinion political, but expects you to have a genuine interest in what's going on in the world political. Please don't be this person:
What I’m doing with my life
Slaying dragons and time-traveling? Sorry, I thought it said "What I wish I was doing" :). Still, I'm pretty content with my average life of working, drawing(poorly), reading (not poorly), and spending time with a reliable group of weirdly religious friends (that joke only translates when you realize I'm an atheist, ba-DUM TISH!). As of right now, I'm working as a special education aide. I'm also trying to get out of my anti-social hermitage and meet more people, although thus far I've only met hermitic anti-socials. I guess I have a type.
I’m really good at
I'm told writing, but not at 3:30 am when I actually bothered to fill this in. I think I also relate really well to kids, and even adults have this odd habit of spilling their deepest fears and worries onto me at first glance. So I suppose I must be a good listener, for all these people to keep opening up to me.
The first things people usually notice about me
My face is oddly memorable, probably that whole "Eastern European Jewish immigrant" look. Or maybe it's that lost or glazed-eyed look I often wear in a new place with a large crowd of people. And they probably notice that I'm doll-sized and super skinny too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Wind-up Bird Chronicles, 1984, IQ84, When the Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down, Portnoy's Complaint, The Magicians, Jane Eyre, Little Brother, The Trial of God, Outliers, Brother's Karamazov, Ender's Game, Sherlock Holmes, Dumbing Us Down: the Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Schooling, Lolita, Superfreakonomics, Madness: A Bipolar Life, blah blah blah books book books.

Movies: A Beautiful Mind, No Country for Old Men, Inception, Les Bonnes Femmes (points if you actually have any idea what the last one is, I was only came across it by way of a med student with a passion for French New Wave Cinema and Joe Dassin).

Shows: Jon Stewart, Colbert, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Buffy. The rest I could live without. Add-on: Community!

Food: I don't always cook new recipes, but when I do, I end up getting sick of it and ordering a pizza instead. I'm also famous for butchering recipes, so if you were hoping for a partner in master chef-ery, you're out of luck :).
Six things I could never do without
Friends to lean on and bitch to and who don't take themselves too seriously.
The Internets
And family, of course.
On a typical Friday night I am
At a Shabbat dinner, or at home reading a book. I know: I'm pretty wild.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nope, not on the internet.
You should message me if
-You're kinda odd.
-You belong to a community but have always felt a little bit outside of it.
-You have as much trouble understanding how/why dating works as I do.
-You're an amazing friend and genuinely good person.
The two of us
