Next up on our lineup of personals is Vivian and Shaila. Vivian is a gal with good bartending chops and even greater recs for restaurants in the city, while her friend Shaila will show you endless love through $5 Pressed Juices. You know the drill by now – if interested, shoot us an email at email@example.com.
Name, Year, School, Major: Vivian, Sophomore, Barnard, Behavioral Neuroscience
Preference: Surprise me
Hometown: Born in NYC raised in Shanghai
Your nightmare date in seven words or fewer: Doesn’t intentionally let me win at bowling
What redeems you as a human being? I have a Chegg membership and a lot of knowledge on food
Library room of choice: I don’t go to the library but I especially HATE Butler
Beverage of choice and why: Grapefruit soda bc that’s all I drank when I bartended over the summer. Also a hoe for mezcal cocktails and fernet branca digestif
If you had to eat one meal from a dining hall for the rest of your life what would that be? (Describe thoroughly, like Gordon Ramsay would describe a dish on Masterchef): A toasted multigrain roll with slices honey-cured turkey, melted provolone, and one singular slice of bacon to add a crunchy texture. Accompanied with juicy spinach, tomatoes, and a pesto mayo reduction. For a palate cleanser, gently dried, sliced apples.
Where can you usually be found on a Saturday night? At the gym or at another infatuation recommended restaurant. There is no in between.
Historical Hottie: I like my hotties alive and well
Name, Year, School, Major: Shai, Barnard 2022, Ferocious Pre-Med Major (she’s making it a major, folks)
Preference: Men. Men. Did someone say… men?
Hometown: Pittsburgh, PA… sounds fake, but ok.
Your nightmare date in seven words or fewer: “I’m sorry miss…you’re fabricating your broncospasms.”
What redeems you as a human being? There is nothing Shai loves more than bringing you to Pressed Juicery and using her membership to get you $5 juices. On a similar note, she also loves to shower you with “Valentines” from Pressed Juicery. Actually, now that I think about it, Shai is like a juice from Pressed Juicery– sweet, emotionally healing, and an absolutely undeniably healthy presence in your life.
Library room of choice: Shai would love you to believe that she studies in Butler –in fact, she will text you multiple
times to ask if you want to go study in Butler with her. The reality is, she does not study in Butler (has she ever even been to Butler?). She is most often found occupying her own study room in Milstein; i.e., she is literally occupying an ENTIRE study room in Milstein. (This is not a callout post.)
Beverage of choice and why: Emergen-C. Breakfast. Lunch. Snack. Dinner. Study Snack. Dessert. 2nd Dessert.
Parched in the middle of the night? Emergen-C.
If you had to eat one meal from a dining hall for the rest of your life what would that be? (Describe thoroughly, like Gordon Ramsay would describe a dish on Masterchef): A smoothie from Diana. And absolutely no meat. Let’s keep it real folks; this girl is veggies-only (the key to her heart can only be found in the salad section).
Where can you usually be found on a Saturday night? On a typical weekend night, Shai will be furiously finishing up a lab report, planning a spring break vacation, or desperately trying to get her ridiculously lazy friends to do something. Later, our heroine can be found wandering the streets of Morningside Heights, laughing and spreading her infectious positivity to every homeless person she comes across–oh, and her friends, too.
Historical Hottie: None.
