My self-summary
About me... I'm pretty quiet at first and tend to listen more than I talk, unless you get me onto subjects I'm really passionate about and then I will talk your ear off. But then I'll pick your ear up off the floor, dust it off and apologise so you'll probably be all right.

I'm from England originally but have just moved to South Korea (beginning of December 2013) to teach English and would really like to make friends in the area. Preferably people who like wandering around cities and museums or doing some window shopping rather than just lots of drinking, but I like nights out too.

Also, I'm completely asexual, but that isn't an option on this site and I tend to lean more towards girls romantically as a rule. Not that this should make any difference, really, as I'm not looking for anything other than friendship at the moment, but I've learned it's better to be upfront with this anyway.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm living in a suburb outside of Seoul and teaching English to small children. I've only been here a short while so I'm still trying to wrap my head around it all, but it's a beautiful place to live and I'm enjoying the challenge!

When I'm not teaching or trying to learn to find my way around without getting lost (seriously, I live four minutes walk from my school and have gotten lost twice already...) I like watching movies and geeking out over Les Miserables in all its various incarnations. Did you know there's an animated Japanese version of Les Miserables called Shoujo Cosette? It's pretty rad.
I’m really good at
Geeking out over special features on DVDs. Making fajitas. Remembering people's names. Blowing up toasters and microwaves (two of each so far...). Talking to animals, especially dogs. Selling myself short.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a tendency to get lost, so probably the fact that I'm frowning at random buildings with a confused look on my face.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Never Let Me Go (Kazuo Ishiguro), In the Lake of the Woods (Tim O'Brien), Strangers in Paradise (Terry Moore), Fred and Edie (Jill Dawson), Watership Down (Richard Adams), Northanger Abbey (Jane Austen), The Regeneration Trilogy (Pat Barker), The Hunger Games trilogy (Suzanne Collins),Brave New World (Aldous Huxley), Les Miserables (Victor Hugo).

I'm on a massive 19th century European history kick at the moment, so most of what I'm currently reading is related to my quest to learn everything I can about life during this period. Fun fact: the wide Boulevards in the centre of Paris were constructed in the latter part of the 19th century specifically to make it harder for rebels protesting against the government to construct barricades and easier for the military to send in huge numbers of soldiers and stamp out uprisings before they could become a real threat. Scoff if you like, but one day this knowledge may just help you to win a pub quiz or a game of Trivial Pursuit.

Movies: Lord of the Rings, Aliens, Pan's Labyrinth, Blade Runner, The Avengers, Hanna, Sucker Punch, Les Miserables, Muppet's Christmas Carol, The Hobbit, Resident Evil series, Bandidas, Frida, Ice Age series, Pride and Prejudice, Jennifer's Body, Let the Right One In, The Hunger Games, The Hurt Locker.

Shows: Father Ted, Battlestar Galactica, Farscape, Futurama, Animal Cops, Dollhouse, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Golden Girls, Spaced.

Music: Tori Amos, PJ Harvey, Sugababes, Laura Marling, Taylor Swift (I can hear you judging me from here...), Bjork, Basement Jaxx, Rihanna, M.I.A, Kate Bush, Britney Spears, Dolly Parton, Tinie Tempah, Grimes, Robyn.

Food: fajitas, scones, chocolate, pretty much any kind of fruit except tomatoes (the bastard step child of the fruit family), chicken.
The six things I could never do without
Friends (actual real people friends, not the old tv show - that can go to Hell)
My laptop
Notebook and pencil (shh, it counts as one thing)
Books
Moisturiser
Cosy socks
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What superpowers I would most like to have.
Fluffy dogs and how much sadder my life is for not having one.
Whether Jurassic Park could really happen.
Why the Black Widow doesn't have her own movie yet.
Feminism and how inequality in our society is reflected by the media.
What I'm supposed to be teaching the kids and how to make it fun.
On a typical Friday night I am
Well, last Friday I went drinking with some other foreign teachers and ended up in a karaoke room... so strange but so fun! I'll need to be here a bit longer before I know whether that's typical or not though.
I’m looking for
  • Everybody
  • Ages 21–45
  • Near me
  • For new friends
You should message me if
You live in South Korea and want to hang out and explore the area or just go grab a coffee and see a movie. I'm pretty laid back.
