Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'd like to say I have a rather optimistic and friendly
personality, not to be confused with being insincere. But I'd
rather laugh at everything than spend my life taking everything so
seriously. Now that growing out of being a teenager has settled me
down a bit, I've realized that my goals don't have to reach so far
from the stars. I'm really just looking to be able to be 100%
myself around everyone. It's meant cutting a lot of ties in my
life, but I'm tired of having to hide who I am from anyone.
In my spare time I love to create, or simply enjoy what others have
created. Reading, watching movies and playing video games take up a
lot of my time, but when I'm feeling creative I love to write
myself, or sew something up. I'm an amateur at both, so I only
create for myself. But the feeling of having make something make
the effort worth it every time.
There are a lot of faults in my life that I'm still trying to work
through, as growing up is an eternal problem we must face, but I
think now I'm more accepting of the rate of change. It may not
happen tomorrow, but I don't have to hate myself until I grow into
the person I want to be. On the other hand I can get quite
frustrated by myself if I don't meet simpler goals.
Since I was the only girl in my family growing up, I always
surrounded myself with my elders. It's rubbed off on me now in that
I love to be around those wiser than me. There's so much to learn,
when I can find people that push my horizons it always makes my
brain hurt with expanding joy. On the reverse though, I'll admit
that I can be sometimes snappy when it comes to common sense, or
more specifically, the frustrations of someone who lacks in common
sense. I prefer an intellectual any day.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've recently graduated from the University of Alberta. I'm looking
to hopefully find myself a teaching position for September, and for
the rest of the time I'm just working a simple job while trying to
give myself some bonus points on the resume and enjoy my free time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Keeping myself and others organized with many, many, detailed
lists. I have journals and notebooks strewn around everywhere,
because sometimes I just can't help but keep myself put together
like that. I've also been told that I have very talented fingers,
and that I really shouldn't offer back rubs unless I'm willing to
be there for a while.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'd love to say it would be my stunning good looks. But more like
it, it's my "pot belly". Just don't punch me in it.
In actuality, I think I try to draw people in to my big smile and
generally cheery behaviour. My mother used to say I was sweet as
bubble gum, but, that's just the side my mom got to see.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
We're rather spoiled by society, so in that regard I would find it
very hard to be separated from my laptop or cellphone, or losing
the ability to pick up a book and read or learn. But I also would
have trouble being without my friends, the ability to be myself, or
a voice in this world.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
General stresses (a trait passed down from my Grandmother). I'm
always thinking about what I should be doing, how I'm going to
handle the events I'm seeing on my horizon or later this week. I
try not to let them invade my daily life, but there is a mental
checklist going on.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I spend most Friday nights at home, playing video games. Don't get
me wrong, I like to go out and have a good time, but I find those
occasions rare in favour of good friends and a game to replay.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
There's not much I'm trying to hide, but that doesn't mean I'll
leave it out for people to find.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have something to say, whether it be a shared interest or a
curiosity. But I'm more likely to respond to people who want to
talk, I find it a lot more sincere.
My current relationship status is complicated. While I am dating
someone, we are both pursuing physical intimacy outside our
relationship, and are fine with this.
