Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So I'm not good with broad questions. I grew up in Vancouver, I was
away at university for four years, and now I'm back.
I studied Psychology in university. I now work with youth-at-risk.
I like helping people. Improving the world and people's lives and
all that, especially in the area of Mental Health, to which I'm
extremely passionate about. I think the passion stems from my lived
experience. If you have a problem with that, fuck off. :)
I enjoy frolicking in the outdoors, writing and reading a good
book. All of these things are things I have not done in ages due to
lack of time and motivation, unfortunately.
Now let me get a bit deeper into who I am before I wrap this up. I
am feminist, pro-choice, queer positive, and a fairly liberal
individual of no religious background. Mental Health, as mentioned
above, is a huge part of my life, both for personal reasons and
because the lack of knowledge about it in our society is complete
If you disagree with any of these things, I don't know if we would
be the best of friends. I'd love to have a discussion about any of
this though, as I find discussion the quickest way to knowledge. I
am a fairly open minded person, and would love to consider any
other points of view. I just may not agree with them.
Oh, and one last thing. If you like board games, that's awesome.
When I say board games, I mean like.... strategy ones. Settlers of
Catan is just the beginning of what games I enjoy. Puerto Rico?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working. And volunteering. And not having free time. Woot.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Some board games.
Being too busy for my own good.
Simultaneously enjoying and despising the company of cats.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My Family
2) My Friends
3) Notebooks (Ideas, Doodles, Everything!)
4) Lip Balm (Chapped lips... HATE them.)
5) Fresh Air
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I can make a mark on the world. How I can effect someone's
life. How awful, and simultaneously wonderful our society is. The
many road blocks and opportunities. It's a vast world out there,
and I can only skim the surface.
So that was a little venture into my mind. I went free reign on the
'what do I think about?' question. The truth is, I think about a
lot of things. Some of them are meaningful, some of them are
What colour socks do I wear?
How can I change the world?
There you go.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably hanging out with my cats at home. Or working. Sometimes
I'm fun and go out for drinks with friends. :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I still sleep with my teddy bears. That's right. Bears. Plural.
Deal with it.
