My signature characteristic is that I am bluntly honest- I say the first thing that pops in my head and people say to me, “I love your honesty,” but I know they are really thinking, “I can’t believe she just said that.”
In terms of vital statistics, I am single, intermittently dating and doing the Sisyphean task of replenishing my ever draining friend pool (Why do people leave Philly for LA or NYC?). Currently, I’m extricating myself from suburbia and moving to Norris Square. Here is a geeked out blog post I wrote about my new digs.
Politically, I am a lefty and am a supporter of progressive social change. But I’m no armchair intellectual radical…I’m more of a lay-on-the-sofa leftist, asleep and drooling atop the latest “must read” piece of political commentary.
Everybody asks me about my work. Here goes. I am a grantwriter for an AIDS organization. It’s a great job and I love it. In this time of recession, I’m glad to have it.
As for my interests, I pitch in at the ER of Pennsylvania Hospital. Also, I do stuff for sundry progressive causes. I want the world to be a happier place with less miserable, preventable death. And I take improv comedy classes, which has taught me how to listen, live in moment, and play wildly like a kid in a snowstorm.
Oh yeah, I love music and dancing. But I blog about that stuff a lot, so no need to go into details about that. Check out my last.fm page and you can see what I am listening to at the moment. Btw, I’m open to meeting new people on the dancefloor, so if you like to hang out at places like the Barbary, Fluid, Kung fu necktie, or the Sundae party, hit me up.
Fearing my inevitable death is my greatest motivating influence. Sounds like a downer, but I’m not a Woody Allen-esque wanker. Instead, I want to squeeze as much as I can from the moment. I don’t mean to scare you with my intensity, but if I die young like my dad, I don’t have many party years left.
The purpose of my blog is to meet and converse with people, not about impressing you with my sexy brain.
There is more I could say, but it’s your turn to talk. You can find me and communicate in many ways. Scribble on my blog. Also, show me your website/blog/Tumblr/Twitter/Facebook, etc. and I will follow.
