My self-summary
32 Year old. Been teaching English for some time now, after spending a few years abroad (Italy, New-Zealand and Spain). I don't feel like I'm into that many things but what I like, I do so 110%.
Not so easy to meet new people in the workplace so I'm all for meeting new people, wherever that leads us to. No real standards when it comes to age or origins, just someone fun to be with.
I'll admit to being sapiosexual...I like a girl with a big brain who's not afraid to use it. (I'm talking to you, #distractinglysexy ladies)
Can speak French, English and Italian (I'd love to speak Italian more often, if you're up for it)
Wanna understand how this thing work...or how you can be a nerd about finding love?
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching English & English Lit. in High-school.
And when I'm not facing hordes of teenagers or marking copies, You'll usually find me reading [suggestions are welcome], at an exhibition or a weird art installation or, weather abiding, riding my motorbike.
Using the long holidays totravel around and hike: this year's plan include going down the Loire, a motorbike trip through Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia and Italy, and probably a week or so of parahiking across the Alps
I like to take pictures. I could be that guy you saw at 4 in the morning, waiting 2 hours in the cold to get the right shot. Here's a few from last summer if you care to have a look
Using any chance I've got to learn, about anything really (even though I've a thing for natural science & social studies)
I’m really good at
Hopefully teaching, as I don't want to scar generations of students.
I'm allegedly quite good at remembering weird, outdated or plain made-up words, just because I like the way they sound, and somehow using them in their proper context. (Please do message me if you too enjoy Vellichor!]
It takes me some time to know people but I'm a dedicated friend (as long as it goes both ways).
I couldn't run for my life (never had to, to be honest) but I can hike all day long...literally...that and I also like to think I'm a fairly good diver.
The first things people usually notice about me
Maybe my peculiar sense of humor?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
House of Leaves by M. Danielewski
Really anything by either Tolkien, Pratchett or Gaiman
Travels books: Jules Vernes, Jack London (the Road & the Iron Heel), Mark Twain (especially Roughin'it, because that's the way I like to travel)...
Romain Gary, Camus

I have a thing for mafia movies
Indie movies, Z movies, anything as long as its not too mushy
Ghibli movies Monty Python...

Classic Rock,Blues Rock (Black keys, BRMC...), Blues, Electronic music or even Classical (I might ask you to marry me on thespot if you can play Rach2).

Japanese, Indian...I'm fairly open-minded when it comes to food.
That said, I can make some mean vegetarian quiches and lasagnas...

Watch the classics, with a few drama (The Hour...) but I have to admit my favorites are the weird ones with a bit (understand: a lot) of black humor: Black books, Father Ted, FotC, Garth Marenghi's...
I do watch Jon Stewart, John Oliver & Bill Maher, sometimes makes me feel like I know more about US politics than France's
TED, not the movie, the website. Lots of really interesting stuff, I use it all the time in class...Just so you know how great it is the answer to that question we've all wondered about: Why is that stupid song stuck in my head
The six things I could never do without
Nature: The long holidays allow for extensive treks with my ever-so-faithful hammock (usually 2/3 weeks)
Sea: That's what i go back to eventually. Childhood's dream was to be a diver on Cousteau's Crew. Turns out I'm not but still, I'll get in the water any chance I get.
Books: By trade, I'm a literary translator so books are really special to me. And there's something about the smell and touch of old paper...
Abroad: I've spent quite some time abroad and I kinda miss the whole "Auberge Espagnole" thing. I enjoy the thrill of meeting new cultures, discovering new landscapes, food...(going to countryside Japan made me feel like a stranger for the first was amazing)
Foreigners: If you lived abroad, you know the feeling: You like your home friends but nothing beats an evening chatting with people from 10 different countries and 10 different opinions!
On a typical Friday night I am
Most likely hanging out at friends or in a pub/restaurant
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sing along to the radio when I drive, when I shower...any chance I get, really...
After seeing lot of people talking about it here, I took the MBTI and turns out I'm supposed to be INFJ...seems accurate enough from the description
Oh, and I once landed on a roof...
You should message me if
You actually like my profile. Probably like most people, I can't see who actually "liked" it. Just say hi, I don't bite, and I'm always up to meet new people ;)
You're up to no good and looking for a mischief buddy or just if you feel like we could actually enjoy each other's company.
