Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I live and work downtown where I manage a coffee shop. I have spent
many wonderful months living in Montreal and Vancouver, but here is
I'm a recently published author with my first short story in the NL
Quarterly, and have a couple more in the works. I'm pretty involved
in politics too, and ran for the leadership of the NL NDP.
I love to go out dancing, hike, run (on trails especially), swim,
and cook. I'm pretty experimental in the kitchen and love using
local food and eat any kind of plant I can get my hands on.
I'm looking for someone who knows who they are, what they want, and
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently living in a lovely new apartment in Georgetown near
the bakery. Managing a coffee shop in the morning (between runs for
bagels) and writing in the event, and an ample helping of music on
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking talking talking talking talking talking
Listening (surprise ending?)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My laughter or my big ol shiney eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies; Up, and fuck all the other movies
Shows; Derek, Twin Peaks, Samurai Jack, The Office, OITNB... I'm
basically a Netflix zealot I guess? That's the vast majority of my
pop-culture consumption, given I do not own a TV.
Music; locally my favorite act is the rare and elusive Burning
Hell, but when they aren't in town I try and find some
adorable/creepy/fun folky acts to fill the void.
Food: OH SWEET JESUS.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Stable internet connection - I read a lot of news, all of the time.
I try not to read just right/left/mainstream/radical sources so I
spend a lot of time balancing. And on reddit.com/r/worldnews.
That's good stuff right there.
Chocolate - I have a growing soft spot for dark chocolate. I'm not
motivated by brands or fair-tradeness, sorry, but deliciousness.
Cheese cake was a close second, but, as a daily thing chocolate is
really more importantly.
Human connection - if I don't see people for awhile I just go MAD.
I need to talk talk talk talk talk, and I'd like to do that with
you. And dance. And... fist punch. Gotta punch fists.
Spicy Thai sauce - Seriously.
Live music - I love to dance, and I love to see artists giving
their all. I don't have a musical bone in my body, but I can find a
beat and love to give back when an artist is really giving
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future, space, god, truth, love, beauty, kindness, sadness,
Calvin and Hobbes, climbing trees, cooking, art, science, mantis
shrimp, evolution and what ever reddit tells me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I generally work Friday evenings, so I find myself with lots of
free soup and coffee. It is a most awesome new ritual where I get
to shower the citizens of Dt. St John's with the lovely offerings
of the day. Then buddies, maybe a park beer, and music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I said it here, it'd hardly be very private.
