I’m from Westchester, went to Cornell, and now live in Williamsburg. I love my 'hood b/c a stone's throw away are some of the best restaurants, bars and cafes. There’s also an overabundance of beer gardens, which I’m a fan of.
I consider myself pretty zen, but when I feel the need to blow off some steam there's nothing like a good run. It's important to be healthy, but that doesn't stop me from the occasional indulgence. I'm big on cheese- all types, even the stinky ones.
I recognize this is rather cliche, but a sense of humor is key. I know, I know… I can't believe I enjoy laughing either. Secret trick/advice: people will laugh at anything as long as you laugh super hard after your joke (either out of pity or pure awkwardness). I’ll accept this, but bonus points if you don’t have to go this route.
