People always say I'm an interesting and quirky individual. I've been told by many that I'm rather funny as well but that I don't really know about. I've also been told many times I'm the nicest person they've ever met but I just try to be kind and respectful to everyone. I am kinda shy at first but I warm very easily and quickly to new people if I'm comfortable around them. I'd like to think I am easy to get along with as I am very laid back, open and honest.
I really love traveling. Originally, I'm from Vancouver, Canada. I've been to: Western USA, Mexico, Alberta, Finland x2, Sweden, Ontario, Italy, Greece, Wales, England, Rep. Ireland, Morocco and Spain. I now live in Wales :3
Looking mainly for friends as I will be new to the country and more or less all alone but open to anything and everything!
What I’m doing with my life
I am a final year uni student pursuing a double major in English
and philosophy 'cause I like not getting a job when I graduate. I
got accepted to the University of Wales for final year this
September so I will be doing that but now just trying to find work
and pass the time.
I also try to do volunteer work (I used to be a full time volunteer
taekwondo instructor until I got injured)
My goal is to teach ESL for a few years before transitioning into a
high school English teacher.
I’m really good at
not dying. It's my goal in life not to die. So far I've
I'm also pretty good at numberwang.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a really chill and laid back guy. I'm also pretty socially
awkward and have a hard time initiating conversations with new
people but I warm up to people really easily if I feel comfortable

Movies: I'm not really into watching movies, but if I do, they're
usually foreign (Japanese, Korean, Finnish etc.). I do watch A LOT
of documentaries and Hayao Miyazaki though.

out of 10 Cats, Mock the Week, Fresh Meat, Inbetweeners and Bad

The Simpsons, Futurama, Adventure Time, Parks and Rec, Wilfred and
Dragon's Den. I also spend a lot of time watching TED talks.
Music: Almost anything. My iPhone is completely random
Food: Japanese (sushi in particular), Korean, Vietnamese among many
more. I like just walking down the street and trying new and random
restaurants that look good. I am willing to try (almost)
everything, however I don't really like pasta all that much.
The six things I could never do without
1. my lucky Paddington Bear keychain
2. my cell phone
3. sushi and bubble tea or ... y'know ... food in general
4. my objection to writing lists
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how we as subjective beings can live in an objective world.
On a typical Friday night I am
training to be a Pokémon master, obvs
watching cat videos on youtube with my kitty cat :3
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm utterly terrified of feral children.
I was once kinda kidnapped in Morocco.
I've never seen a Disney movie.
I'm pretty sure I have tryophobia.
You should message me if
you feel like messaging me. Or not. You're your own independent
woman, I can't tell you how to live your life.
