My self-summary
I've been called a working activist, which I think is a pretty good description. I'm looking for experiences, trying to meet new people, emitting passionate vibes as I go. I love adventure and doing new things, but also try to balance out being dedicated to a few interests at a time. In general, I strive to live my life in an accountable way, which is a looooong but exciting journey. That's something pretty consistently important in my life.

I'm really into cooking and baking, and I'm pretty good at learning new languages (my french is coming along pretty well!). I've decided to build some long term roots in beautiful Montreal, and love soaking up this city at every opportunity. At the same time, I'm also down for just general chilling out in a park and relaxing time.

Aussi ça m'intéresse beaucoup de parler en français, quand même si ma grammaire est horrible! Je suis vraiment a l'aise d'avoir des conversations, et j'aimerais avoir plus d'expérience dans le monde francophone!
What I’m doing with my life
Building roots in Montreal, working on my French writing, and bopping around the world of climate activism. I'm also living in a collective with six other people, which is basically just being in a family. Sometimes smashing the patriarchy and tearing down capitalism. I'm mostly just enjoying Montreal life and being surrounded by wonderful people.
I’m really good at
Telling punny / sarcastic jokes, facilitating workshops, making rhymes, baking bread, asking questions, learning languages, giving hugs

my hair (it's blonde and curly), my comfortable attitude
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Phantom Tollbooth, Kurt Vonnegut, I and Thou by Martin Buber, Rules for Radicals, Atlas Shrugged (although I really disagree with Ayn Rand, but her writing's super compelling), Ishmael, The Disposessed, The Fifth Sacred Thing, The Years of Rice and Salt

The six things I could never do without
Chocolate, my notebook, sweaters, scarves, garlic, music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to build intentional community, what i want to cook next, what kind of activism is meaningful, how to make my actions reflect my ideals, how awesome montreal is, a to-do list of people to contact and emails to send for various projects.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably chilling at a friends' house, maybe at a bar
You should message me if
You're interested!

On a side note, I recognize that OKCupid cupid communication is kind of weird (e.g. "guy messages, girl responds" pattern), but whatever you do, please don't "choose" me or "rate" me. That's pretty much the weirdest way to introduce yourself. Message me instead!
