I am quiet, polite, friendly, even-tempered, unassuming...so I get along with just about everyone. I am usually very tidy and organized, and my home is clean, so I look for accommodations that are also clean and stress-free. I work in a nonprofit job, and live a modest lifestyle, so I travel on a limited budget and look for bargains. I write for a living and read as much as possible: The New York Times, The New Yorker, New York magazine, and Entertainment Weekly. My favorite topics are politics and the arts, so I read the news incessantly, and enjoy talking with friends and colleagues about these topics. My closest friends and I share a progressive outlook on the world. For me, it's important to live by the golden rule: "do unto others as you would have them do unto you." In terms of movies, I enjoy watching the classics (Casablanca, The Manchurian Candidate, Annie Hall, etc.), independent films, and foreign films.
