Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a former graduate student who is about to have her master's
degree in Religious Studies. Right now, I am also looking for
longterm work. Otherwise, I am working in Disabilities Services as
a temporary worker.
I enjoy a multitude of hobbies. Reading, writing, and being engaged
in fantasy and science fiction in myriad of ways happens to be one
of them. Other hobbies include reading the social sciences in
general, mindful and healthy living, dancing, and the occasional
social activism. Ever since I was a wee girl, I have also been
involved in video games and play-by-post storylines - it is a
guilt(less) pleasure for me.
What else do I enjoy? Well, I am one who also enjoys intellectual
conversations, making food, and hosting parties for friends, and
helping others when I can show the best of myself. Lately, I have
been involved with cooking my own food, especially the various
ethnic foods. I hope to make tasty food that can somehow strike the
balance between economic and avoiding GMOs.
I would also like to think myself also a fan of good, dry sense of
humour. I watch British comedy and enjoy things equally humourous.
Monty Python and recently, Simon Pegg's films (bar Hot Fuzz) amuse
me. Soon I will be flirting with some Black Adder during a nice,
And then there is more below, but I like to talk about these sort
of things in person or on a voice chat of sort. I feel a good chunk
of the conversation is lost when it is purely text.
Oh, and if you are wondering. At some point I was a Whovian,
Trekkie, and I am trying to believe the Force is with me. <.<
I have not caught up on everything in these realms, but they still
remain dear to me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to get a good, longterm job - for one. Until I get that job,
I am going to enjoy the time I have reading books on my bed,
catching up on fantasy/sci-fi related video games and films (one at
a time), dancing Bharatanatyam, and getting in touch with friends
that are both old and new. I enjoy keeping busy, even while
occasionally needing a me-day to not engage the world at all.
However, I have many aspirations. One of the aspirations include
being able to go overseas again in the next year or two. It is a
guilty pleasure of mine to immerse myself in other cultures,
expanding my horizons - so to speak. I have a wanderlust that
really hates being confined to one place for too long. Another
aspiration of mine includes doing some activism work on the side to
combat some of the social injustices in the world.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being as honest as possible, discussion, keeping myself busy,
self-improvement, attention to detail (sometimes to a fault), and
doing my best. Some people say I can also be a good speaker and
teacher, despite my inclination to be an introvert. Nonetheless, it
is important for me to strive toward honesty, respect, reliability,
understanding, and accountability. When I am of that age where I
start reflecting even more on my life than I do now, I want to be
remembered for being good at these things and feel content with
where I was, am, and will be.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People suggest they notice me being attractive and intelligent. My
eyes, nose stud, and smile seem to really catch people's attention.
Some have also thrown about the term, "old soul." Others have
suggested I can have a dark wit about myself when I am in the mood
for mischief and sarcasm.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Many. Many. Many. There are some things that have been catching my
interest more than others, though, as of late.
Movies/television shows include Game of Thrones, Avengers and
related Marvel films, Christopher Nolan's DC Comics movies, and a
few others. I love a multitude of action, comedy, and even some
romance. The most important element in a film or series involves
the plot and the amount of intrigue and intellectual elements. I do
not care about the content if the quality of these traits are
outstanding - hence I enjoy Game of Thrones. It has everything,
content-wise, but the storyline catches me the most. Person of
Interest also attracts me for the same reasons.
When it comes to music, I integrate a number of styles and genres
in my MP3 players. New Age, ethnic, classical rock, alternative,
symphonic and industrial rock, and so forth are compelling for me.
One moment I can be listening to Azam Ali or Niyaz and in the next,
I might find myself drawn to Sarah Brightman or Within Temptation.
It all depends on what I want to be inspired by. There are even a
few individual country songs I enjoy, even while I dislike the
genre in general.
I am a shameless foodie. My favourites happen to be Asian cuisine,
especially Indian, properly made Chinese and Vietnamese food, and
Thai food. When I crave falafel, I will find myself in a Middle
Eastern sort of restaurant. Recently, I have been trying to expand
my tastes, and will sometimes try to make properly made European
foods (especially Italian).
Now I go onto my books... I think I enjoy a number of books, but I
especially enjoy Barb and J.C. Hendee's Noble Dead saga and related
books. They are amongst the few authors who can write a
fantasy/science fiction with vampires who have their own
personalities - some even heroic or protagonistic - but are still
vampires (in other words, not 'sparkly'). Their lore in the realm
their fantasy books take place is also rather interesting. The
elves in their setting are also complex and political, versus
simply a 'superior, moral race.'
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Basic needs (yes, -all- of them), books, the internet, occasional
video games, dancing, and my independence.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
This is a rather loaded query, I must admit. To start with, I
contemplate my future aspirations to make a decent living while
making a positive impact in this world. There is also the
adventurous element of me who wants to expand my comfort zones so
long as I do not compromise myself as a person. Then I often end up
considering everyone in my life, my role in this world, and how all
of these things play a role in teaching me the lessons I need. Of
course, I also spend much time thinking about how my day will be,
what I plan to accomplish during the day, and looking forward to
the next adventure.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Thinking about the weekend, or doing something involving my
hobbies, thinking of how far I have come along on my little
personal journey in this world, and where I will be next. At times,
I find time to just enjoy myself and tend to what I need at a given
moment or time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My mother got me into Dungeons & Dragons when I was five years
old. I've been in and out of the game scene since. It is one of
those things I will not give up. If I am not caught with D&D on
my free time, I am likely engaged in play-by-post or multiplayer
games where I am equally participating in a world of imagination. I
love fantasy in its different forms and expressions, and will often
default to geek terms at times even around my non-gamer friends.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are willing to have intellectual conversations that challenge
me, have a witty sense of humour in both light and dark shades of
it, and can be down to earth and strive for
What does this mean in terms of being on this site, the online
dating scene, and so forth? In the long run, I see myself
eventually settling down, but at this time, I am not going to give
such things a timeline. So, when talking to me, I suggest
abandoning any sense of anything longterm with me and trying to
make a good friendship with me.
Being friends first is important for me to get a feel of the person
and to see if we connect in anyway, shape, or form. From here, I
can see if a person is going to just be a friend, a very good
friend, a mutually beneficial relationship, or someone who I feel
will complement me as a longterm partner. All the qualities that
make a friend is important in my longterm relationships, as that
includes the trust and other components that make a healthy
relationship in the many forms that may take. In addition to the
above, I want to enjoy the person's company, feel we can both be
imperfect people who work on a good relationship, and someone who
can feel like themselves around me and vice versa.
If you feel you can just simply hang out with me a few times in
various mediums and figure this out, and can just be fine with
where we end up from there, feel free to message me. I need at
least a few days to a week to respond in most cases, and will try
to keep people informed of where I am in the roller coaster that I
call life. >.>
