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, in
England and in other lovely places, but having returned to
Kitchener, I've been trying to find ways to try new things from
home, and travel during my time off.
For fun, I like things like movies, board games and going out for
drinks. I love sports, and I've played soccer all my life, but I've
also tried volleyball and judo with varying degrees of success.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm in my second year of teaching, 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.
Communicating with people that do not speak the same language as me
(in fact, that's my favourite thing), 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, hopefully I am good
at teaching (or will soon become good at that).
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 recently
and loved it. I am reading the BFG by Roald Dahl to my class, with
funny voices, and it's pretty amazing.
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 a guy I liked by claiming I really enjoyed
horror movies, if I say that I like these 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, Battlestar Gallactica, Parks
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, incentives or new initiatives which may persuade me to
go for more frequent runs.
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, in a fun, laid back sort of way.
