Iwas a reader and filled out the online quotserv!

Five things that a Northeastern student should have on their Boston bucket list:

  1. Walking around The Emerald Necklace
  2. Midnight showing of Rocky Horror in Harvard Square
  3. Eating at The No Name
  4. Harpoon Brewery Tour (it's free and there's more beer than at Same Adams!)
  5. Getting day-of tickets for an off Broadway show. 

    Guy Talk

    Turn-on/Deal maker: Intelligence, snarkiness, sense of humor

    Turn-off/Deal breaker: Guys who can't comprehend my first name. Sexism. Being uninformed. 

    How can a guy capture and maintain your interest? Challenge me. 

    The worst pick up line I've ever used/heard: (Upon learning I speak Arabic and am an IAF major) Hey do you know anything about Palestine? I heard those guys are like terrorists and stuff...
