Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've always been a social person, but it's easy for me to see the
same (wonderful!) friends and family every week, so here i
I care about travel, cultures, chocolate, feelings, television
shows, sports, friends, and a whole bunch of other things, more and
less serious. I occasionally agitate for things I think would be
good for the world and I always laugh. I've lived in Japan,
Toronto, England and in other lovely places, and I loved them all
for different reasons.
For fun, I watch movies, I read, I go out for drinks, I play board
games with friends. I love sports, and I've played soccer all my
life, but I've also tried volleyball and judo with varying degrees
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a teacher, so it takes up 90% of my time and 95% of my
thoughts. However, I am positive that the stories I tell are funny
and worthwhile most of the time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Travelling, empathizing (if that's the type of thing to put on
here), accessing my stores of mid 90s-mid '00s knowledge of
European soccer, friendships, losing track of time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love reading but I usually do it in intense, thematic, bursts.
The last GREAT book I read was Green Grass, Running Water by Thomas
King which was incredible and funny. I read Neil Gaiman
occassionally and I like to read Roald Dahl to my class.
Movies: I don't know what to put here because I like a lot of
different types of movies, documentaries, funny movies, dumb
movies, depressing movies...who doesn't like movies? In university
I tried to impress someone by claiming I really enjoyed horror
movies, if I say that I like horror movies, you should know that
this is a lie and I am just trying to recreate my least successful
flirting move ever.
TV: Arrested Development, Game of Thrones, The Wire, Freaks and
Geeks, The Daily Show, Colbert Report, Happy Endings, Parks and
Music: I love seeing live music, but I don't do it enough. My
tastes lean toward Indie music, but I know that my Indie stylings
are years behind the times. I love motown, and some alt-country and
of course nostalgia-based pop songs.
Food: I'm a vegetarian, but I like many different kinds food, and
can find something to eat almost anywhere.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends and family
Tea and chocolate
Radio (I really love the CBC)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My job, my friends, politics, where I want to travel, ways to be a
good person, podcasts.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going to a friend's house or a pub for a drink, sometimes heading
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am a progressive, feminist, activist leaning type. I care a lot
about that stuff.
