How about we… get a couple tacos at Snack Dragon and then walk around the East Village.
An awesome place I've visited:
Why should I tell you when I can just SHOW you?
My perfect Sunday:
Laid back, preferably involving the outdoors and copious amounts of coffee.
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer:
I was born, a load of ridiculous stuff happened, I spent too much time in school and got a job. More ridiculous stuff happened. I left that job and went through more school. Now I have a totally different job, but I'd still rather be doing something else...something creative.
Obscure knowledge I possess:
I'm a walking encyclopedia of music from the late 1800s to the present. This is annoying to some, but if it annoys you, I'm not for you.
I have a weakness for guys/girls who:
Know their music and have good (eclectic) taste.
For me, a first date no-no is:
Talking about your ex. I have been with way too many people who were obsessed with their exes, and have had too many exes obsessed with me. It shows the ultimate in emotional immaturity and straight-up instability. Do it and I WILL get up and walk away. I'm also not cool with talking about other girls at all. I'm not a jealous type, but if you're out with me, I'm going to be all about YOU, which means you should be all about me.
What I would bring to show and tell:
Photos of my grandparents...they were all really really ridiculously good looking and on top of that, incredibly inspirational people. They're my heroes.
I secretly want to be:
Living in the 1920s-40s. But to anyone who knows me, this is no secret.
I want to be with someone who wants to be:
Complemented by their partner, but not defined by their partner.
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would:
Probably take up photography full time, and more than likely fill the rest of the time with volunteer work. I get bored easily, and need to have purpose...the life of the independently wealthy would drive me to the nuthouse.
One thing my mother would want you to know about me:
The best way to motivate me is to tell me I can't do something...either I'm not allowed, or I simply am not capable. In all my years, I haven't allowed someone to be right about that ONCE.
I want to come home to:
Comfort, relaxation, and stability.
