How Hookup… grab a blanket and check out Hill Country's Backyard BBQ on Friday or Saturday?
An awesome place I've visited
the Haiga Sophia in Istanbul
My perfect sunday
a great workout, a lazy brunch, and exploring the city
The movie I've watched the most times
While You Were Sleeping...it's a must watch for me every time it comes on during lazy weekend days :)
My life history in 5 sentences or fewer
I grew up in Honolulu, Hawaii, but I've called DC home for the last 12 years (although I have to admit that a part of my heart will always call Hawaii home). I moved out here for college and ended up staying (despite the cold winters!). I work in education research and have traveled to some truly random places in the US for work. I would love to run my own education nonprofit one day (or else travel the world as a photojournalist for National Geographic :)...I know totally different life paths).
I have a weakness for Guys/Girls who
have a brillant smile and a wicked sense of humor
For me, a first date no-no is
checking your phone every two seconds
I secretly want to be
I want to be with someone who wants to be
kind, funny, and stubborn enough to convince me to step outside my comfort zones and embrace new adventures
If I won the lottery and quit my job, I would
Help my parents pay off any debt they might still have and make a big donation to my high school and college to give others opportunities that I was so fortunate to have...and then, I would blow the rest completely irresponsibly on a trip around the world until the $$ ran out.
One thing my mother would want you to know about me
that I'm a great listener
I want to come home to
a pair of comfy PJs and a great person to share home with.
