My self-summary
I think I'm open minded; enjoy social outings and group activities, and learning new things. I'm a bit shy and generally prefer long philosophical conversations to witty banter. My sense of humor is on the sarcastic, dark side. I think if you met and got to know me, you'd like me, though be a little frustrated at my reluctance to make big life decisions quickly. Vagueness is my enemy. I tend to make decions quicker with more information at hand. That's kind of just me, until told otherwise.
What I’m doing with my life
Being open to trying new things, having fun, battling my shyness by going out a whole lot more. I work 9-5 at an academic library. I like to exercise and take pottery classes in the evening. Also taking swing dance lessons in a studio in Hampden which is loads of fun. I don't eat shellfish or non-kosher meat. Otherwise I am up for trying new things (food or non-food related).
I’m really good at
Juggling, ceramics, parallel parking (improved a lot between 2014-2015, from terrible to mediocre!). Thank you Charles Village!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Book: A walk in the woods (Bill Bryson). An educational report on the state of the Appalachian trail in the mid-1990's, and a silly buddy adventure story rolled into one. The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro for 2015.
Movie: A tie between The Fault in our Stars and Guardians of the Galaxy for 2014. I'm a big fan of John Green. While I usually don't go for marvel movies, Guardians was just so much fun. And Mad Max:Fury Road for 2015.
T.V. Show: Tie between The Tonight Show and Portlandia. I really like what Jimmy Fallon has done with the show. Portlandia is my favorite satire of hipster culture. Orphan Black for 2015.
Music: Blunderbuss by Jack White. Technically released three years ago, it's the album I listened to the most (and for the first time) in 2014. It's a Terrible World, It's a Beautiful World by The Decemberists in 2015.
Food: Tie between ice cream from The Charmery in Hampden and french fries from Le Garage also in Hampden. Falafel from vendor (sorry I don't know the name) at Waverly farmer's market in 2015.
The six things I could never do without
Exercise, creativity, social interaction, books, food, and a water bottle.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How quickly time flies, and how slowly it seems to move at present. Also I think about the Harry Potter meetup group of which i am a member and any upcoming activities/events they have planned. When am I exercising, taking yoga, or dancing next? I took pottery classes for four years, though haven't the past two semesters. I've shifted my focus toward swing dancing and hanging out with friends and colleagues after work and on weekends.
On a typical Friday night I am
At my apartment, at happy hour with colleagues, or visiting my parents house for friday night dinner. Maybe go out or stay in my apartment and watch something on netflix. Sometimes I go dancing on Fridays. Seems like I could say the same about weekday evenings as Friday evenings. Lucky to live in a cool area of Baltimore with a lot of options for things to do.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
a squirell got into my apartment and peed on my couch last year.

Hey, thanks
