Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
On here looking for new friends and good conversations. I am seeing
someone I'm head over heels for, and while she may be poly, I don't
think I am. Some of the stuff I'm really into include movies
, road trips
, and occasionally
& acting a little weird
I think labels are stupid and pointless and should be ignored. I
say, think outside the box, try something different...that said, if
you have any inherent problems with trans people, gender queer, or
anything like that, move along because that's where I live, and we
probably won't get along.
Whoa, kinda got preachy there, huh? Hmm....let's move on, shall we?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I'm working at a paint store in Waterloo. It's not the
greatest, pay wise, but still, I enjoy it, it challenges me, and
I'm the only one there with any arts background so I get to make
all their signs and have some creativity in my retail job. That's
tending to fill most of my time, but when I get a chance, I love to
pull out my camera and just go out and shoot stuff...anything that
catches my eye. This is on top of my less serious, more for
amusements sake short films
. I also do the
occasional freelance art
, mostly digital art
or the like.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a very good listener, even if I can't always come up with
advice for what's being said. I'm good at teaching people to drive
standard...I've taught several friends, and so far, so good. I'm
good at drawing
confusing they're, there & their, your & you're, and other
little snips of grammar. I also have a good eye for film, and do
some freelance cinematography.
The first things people usually notice about me

I'd like to say it's my eyes or something, but it could be that I'm
thin, or (depending on what I'd wearing) the tattoos. I don't know.
I have enough troubling figuring out that someone's noticed me at
all, so figuring out what they noticed is a mystery to

Thai, bad can just be scary), been recently getting into Sushi. I'm
working on cutting out, or at least severely limiting my intake of
junk foods, but I do allow myself the occasional cheat meal or
pizza or something. I like experimenting with cooking and coming up
with my own recipes. My specialties seem to be stir frys, chicken
parmesan, and Guinness Irish stew.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Something to draw with/on
Nature, getting away from the city from time to time
Stimulation (mental and otherwise).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'm pretty sure I spend a lot of time thinking about everything. I
overthink things too much.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
These days, anything is possible, the idea of a typical friday
night hasn't really existed in a while, so, y'know, to quote Willie
Scott (geek points if you get that), "Anything goes."

I'm an insomniac, and usually really need to have music playing to
