Alright, here goes my spiel. I was born and raised in Russia, so I come equipped with all the necessary stereotypes. I speak 4 languages, and I'm not afraid to strike up a conversation with random people. I'm outgoing, and yet I like my alone time. But at the end of the day, I'm an easygoing person. I like to cook, and I like to eat, and I definitely like to drink wine (and Scotch). I love rainy or cold weather. I love to travel to new places as often as possible. I'm sarcastic and cynical, but sometimes clumsy and awkward. I love to laugh and to go to concerts, to do crossword puzzles and play Scrabble and to play (or watch) soccer. I talk with my hands, and I have a tendency to get passionate about the things I'm discussing. I nitpick my friends' grammar, but I'm going to blame that on English being my second language (though I will defend the Oxford comma, should you ask). Some would call me a nerd, and I embrace that. I'm ambitious and driven and I can be a little (too?) intense.
