I've recently moved to the UK from Canada and I'm super excited to explore a new country!
My profile is intentionally sparse because I'm somewhat guarded with people I haven't met face-to-face. Plus, there's the whole professionalism thing... I'm friendly and gregarious in person, though, especially one-on-one.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a career teacher, and I'm highly dedicated and passionate about it.
I’m really good at
Cracking wise, eating with chopsticks, laughing loudly, detecting
bullshit, having in-depth one-on-one conversations about medium to
The first things people usually notice about me
My massive vocabulary.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Top 5 Books of all time ever: Blindness by Jose Saramago, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer, East of Eden by John Steinbeck, Shakespeare's Complete Works (yes really), and Sometimes a Great Notion by Ken Kesey.
TV: Firefly, AD, The Walking Dead, GoT, Star Trek, Doctor Who (9, please), Full Metal Alchemist, SNL, The Wire (the greatest television show ever made).
I like a lot of music, and definitely still buy new things when they come out, but I listen to podcasts and audiobooks far more often. An awful lot, in fact.
The six things I could never do without
Oceans, books, science, airplanes, my phone (any multipurpose smart
device, really), portmanteaux.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
systems of education. Yes, really.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I secretly despise emoticons and have only ever used them for
sarcastic purposes. I realize this is me taking an arbitrary stand
on a thing that doesn't matter.
Also, I think in text. This includes punctuation, so if you write
me a lot of exclamation points, you are effectively yelling at me
inside my head.
You should message me if
....you like to laugh and talk about important things and you are looking for legit connection. I'm not into one nighters at this point, so I tend not to respond to those kinds of messages. Just sayin'.
