How about we… tour the Brooklyn Brewery.
How about we… browse the Strand and then escape the heat/ rain with a couple of pints.
An awesome place I've visited:
In the moment, I truly feel that every place that I visit is awesome. I haven't made it to Asia, Africa or South America yet, so those are definitely on my to-do list
My perfect Sunday:
A long, boozy brunch followed by a leisurely walk and a nap
The movie I've watched the most times:
I suppose the movies that I've loved since childhood, so probably The Princess Bride and the Star Wars and Indiana Jones Films
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
Moved around a lot through the years; MD, CA, PA, Europe, but back in NYC for good since fall 2012. I spent most of HS in San Diego, college in Davis in Northern California, and grad school in Philadelphia.
My first concert / My dream concert:
The band I've seen the most are the Cure, and they are amazing live. I wish that I could have seen the Dead way back in the day
Obscure knowledge I possess:
I taught courses on Austrian cinema for 2 years. Does that count?
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
Are geeky and funny, and don't take themselves too seriously
For me, a first date no-no is:
Anyone who is rude to waiters, etc.
A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date:
How I shook hands with a mummy
I secretly want to be:
Well, it's not exactly a secret, but I'd like to be spending more time teaching; college, high school, anything
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
fully alive and wants to be with me
An infatuation of mine:
All random facts, especially if they relate to NYC history. Even better if shared during long walks exploring and getting lost
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
Buy myself a lovely place and decorate it, then take time to help out friends/ family and travel for a year or so, before returning to working purely for the fun of it
One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
I'm driven, and will do everything to achieve the things that I truly want
I want to come home to:
A place that's cozy and where I can really relax. Even better if that place includes a partner who makes me happy and a dog and cat to cuddle with
