I am a beer drinking, music loving person. It's summer and I want
to be on a patio (preferably in the west end) all the time. I like
my job, but you will hear me complain about it when things get
crazy. It's a requirement for me to leave North America at least
once a year to stay balanced. I start projects and don't always
finish them. My family is all far away so my friends here are
extremely important to me. I actually believe the adage "to find
each other and to feel, that is the purpose of life" - bonus to
anyone who knows where that comes from.
Also: I don't understand "likes" and ratings on this site, so just
send me a message if you want to see if these match percentage
algorithms are the real deal =)
What I’m doing with my life
It's the end of June, so right now:
- Watching a lot of soccer, but really sad about how the Cup is
- Planning a trip to South America
- Leaving the office on time as much as possible so I can enjoy the
- Trying to learn French
- Working out via any means that does not involve a gym
- Trying to be a better writer via a variety of exercises
I’m really good at
being the first person to offer my seat on the subway to someone
who needs it more. Some people on the TTC are such jerks!
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a loud laugh and a big smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: The XX, The National, Interpol, Of Monsters and Men, Alt-J,
Birdy, Boy, The RAA, Empire of the Sun, Robyn. I also love random
Songza playlists that introduce new stuff.
TV Shows: Mad Men, Suits, Game of Thrones, Homeland, The Newsroom,
The New Girl, Louie, Girls
Movies: Terminator 2, Seven, The Shawshank Redemption, A Good Year,
the Jane Eyre with Michael Fassbender in it, Pulp Fiction
I read way too many books to comment on favourites. Totally a
fiction lover though.
I adore going to concerts in small venues. I am ridiculous at the
time of world and euro cup.
The six things I could never do without
Getting together for pints with my best friends, sunshine, and (if
this list is supposed to be about material things), my metropass,
laptop, iPhone (because my music is on it) and a pair of black
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next travel excursion, what I am going to eat next, and how I
wish musical talent was something I possessed.
On a typical Friday night I am
I am pretty busy during the week so by Friday I might be a bit
wiped out and want to stay in and make a big dinner and watch
movies. If I am out, odds are would be grabbing a beer at my local
with a friend or two.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a huge romantic - but not for dinners and flowers, I'd rather
get a mix tape (if this was the 80s) or a small token related to a
private joke we have, if you know what I mean. I am also a huge
sucker for when guys are so happy to see their girlfriends that
they pick them up and spin them around in a hug in public.
You should message me if
With respect to dating, you want more than just hooking up. I am
not here to hook up.
If you are looking to meet new people as friends, message me if you
want a new concert going buddy!
