Journalist/aspiring international affairs professional
How about we… go hiking around Great Falls, especially as the leaves change.
How about we… get brunch in the NW and then go to the zoo to watch the pandas, elephants and your favorite animal if it's neither of those.
An awesome place I've visited:
The top of Mt. Snowdon
My perfect Sunday:
Sleeping a little late, getting brunch and enjoying the weather out in DC or VA if it's nice outside.
The movie I've watched the most times:
By far and away, The Princess Bride.
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
I was born in a suburb of NYC and had a pretty normal childhood, including a broken leg when I was 10 (a great story). I went to college in Boston, had an amazing time in Europe for a bit after that and then moved to D.C. I work as a journalist and finished up my master's in international affairs in May 2012. I have always enjoyed dancing; I was that kid who danced in the circles of adults at weddings.
My first concert / My dream concert:
First concert: Thursday, Thrice and Coheed&Cambria and the Roseland Ballroom in NYC. Dream concert: Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, CSN(Y), the Stones and the Who...all circa 1969-70.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
New York City history. I'm a dork about it.
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
Can make me laugh, smile and know how to tickle. If you can do all three at the same time...wow ;-)
For me, a first date no-no is:
Bringing up ex-boyfriends.
What I would bring to show and tell:
My photo albums. Either that or a slam poetry performance.
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date:
How I broke my leg when I was 10 and why my parents didn't take me to the hospital.
An infatuation of mine:
Salted caramels. Nomnomnom
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
It depends upon how much money it is. But, generally, give half of it to charity, pay down my student loan debt and then travel around the world for a year.
One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
I'm responsible and caring.
I want to come home to:
You, so we can make dinner and unwind.
