My self-summary
Saving lives by day, foodie by night!

Hi, I'm Yvette. I'm an internal medicine resident, working locally around Philadelphia. I'm looking for someone bold, passionate, who can make me laugh and is up for spontaneous adventures.

I'm originally from central Jersey (yes, there is a central part!) and have moved to this area for school and work. Philadelphia area has been growing on me. I find hidden gems in this city all the time.

I've recently started to grow a vegetable and herb garden. I only have my balcony to work, but with it's amazing how many plants I can actually pack on there. So far it looks very promising!
What I’m doing with my life
Working the wonderful hours that come in being a resident. Despite that, I still make time for my hobbies. I enjoy being out and about in Philadelphia, taking random road trips, watching cooking shows and then actually traveling to the places they feature, and anything else that I find fulfilling. I also got a new dog recently, and am totally in love with it.
I’m really good at
Making funny faces and one-liner jokes. I'm also pretty good at crafting delicious meals (one benefit of knowing me :P )

I get creative ideas from anywhere. It could be from watching Food Network, to tasting a delicious meal and wanting to re-create it to learning about a new cooking technique and wanting to try it on my own. Sometimes it works, sometimes it does, but I'm always up for trying something new.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile and laughter. I can be shy initially, but I'm pretty open and fun once you get to know me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
There's lots of variety here. I don't stick to one genre. Also, Netflix is my new found friend.

TV shows: Kind of whatever is the new rage; Game of Thrones, Orange is the New Black, House of Cards, Modern Family, Dexter to name a few. Also I like competitive food shows like Chopped. I'm trying to find a way to get on that show!

My interest in music is wide ranged as well. I have to admit that I do listen to whatever is the pop song on the radio too. I love oldies, to classic rock, Disney songs, pop, indie, etc. It's more of whatever connects with me. Examples can range from Mumford and Sons, Adele, One Republic, Coldplay, Pink, The Fray, Goo Goo Dolls, Imagine Dragons, Celine Dion, to name a few.

Favorite movies, same as before to name a few... Good Will Hunting, Love Actually, Shawshank Redemption, UP, Gladiator.

In terms of food, I enjoy anything anything made from the heart and I would try anything at least once. Brunch is my favorite meal to eat, and to cook. I really like contrast - I think it brings balance, and in brunch, there's a lot of that - like sweet and salty, hot and cold, soft and hard.

My future goals and plans
On a typical Friday night I am
Every Friday is different. I'm either working or hanging out with friends over dinner/drinks.
I also don't mind a quiet night in, with Netflix on, a wine glass in my hand, and my favorite take-out place.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love Legos since I was a little kid, and I have an active imagination.
You should message me if
you're looking for something more serious than just casual friends.
