My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello, I'm Margaret. I'm currently a student at the University of Southern Maine, which is pretty cool. I live in Portland in the East End and I work the night shift at a hotel in the Old Port. When I'm not at work or in classes, I have a weaving business that I own and run myself.

I spent twelve years living overseas in Greece and Saudi Arabia, and I don't take too kindly to xenophobes or people who refer to Muslims as "terrorists".

I really love studying scientific things like evolution, modern human/animal hybridization (although that one's actually for a story I'm writing), and psychology. Neurology in particular is really interesting for me.

I'm a sucker for movies about the apocalypse, and I really REALLY love thunderstorms.

I'm goofy and really don't take myself all that seriously.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I own and operate my own weaving business, which you can find on Etsy and Facebook if you search "Palola Palooza".
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Weaving - I've been working professionally in textiles since I was 15 and I now have a weaving business. I've been extensively trained in both rapid-fire production weaving and ancient Minoan tapestry, and I now specialize in music weaving.

I'm also really good at working with kids. I have a lot of tricks up my sleeves that childcare professionals don't think of.

I'm a pretty good cook. I love cooking for people and I will most likely make you my savory baked apples because they are to DIE for. That, or melomakarona cookies.

I like to think I'm good at writing, too.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height, probably. Also, I wear flip-flops in the snow sometimes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Oof, this might take awhile.

BOOKS: "Treasure Island", "The Lady And The Unicorn" and "The Girl With A Pearl Earring" by Tracy Chevaliers, anything by Cormac McCarthy, "Cat's Cradle", "The Jaguar Princess" by Clare Bell (this one has a shitty title but a freaking incredible story). I also love anything David Sedaris has ever written. Harry Potter and the collected works of Tamora Pierce will always hold a special place in my heart.

My favorite non-fiction books are "Napoleon's Buttons: Seventeen Molecules That Changed History" by Penny Le Couteur and Jay Burreson, and "Extraordinary Popular Delusions And The Madness Of Crowds" by Charles McKay.

MOVIES: It would be absolutely impossible to list all the movies I love (I'm a HUGE movie buff), but I will say that my top seven are Swimming With Sharks (1994), Stranger Than Fiction (2006), Stage Door (1937), The Third Man (1949), Road To Perdition (2004), The Secret Of Roan Inish (1994), and 12 Monkeys (1995).

TV SHOWS: Dexter, Supernatural, Broadchurch, The Office, Dead Like Me, Seinfeld, Elementary, Game Of Thrones, Scrubs, Firefly, The Walking Dead, Doctor Who, Breaking Bad, Hannibal, and Orange Is The New Black.

MUSIC: I like a TON of different stuff, from opera to a few heavy metal songs. Mainly I listen to movie soundtracks - my favorite scores are from "Gravity" and "Beasts Of The Southern Wild". I also love anything by Thomas Newman, Danny Elfman, Harry Gregson-Williams, Alexandre Desplat, Ennio Morricone, Marco Beltrami, and Mychael Danna. Bear McCreary is awesome too.

As for bands/singers, I'm big on The Black Keys, The Kongos, Milo Greene, Fall Out Boy, Imagine Dragons, Of Monsters & Men, Relient K, Walk Off The Earth, AWOLNATION, The Acorn, Boy, CCR, Queen, The Beatles, Freelance Whales, Mumford & Sons, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, AC-DC, The Avett Brothers, Bastille, and especially David Gray.

FOOD: Greek food, burgers, breakfast foods, sushi, General Tso's chicken, clam cakes, clam chowder, improvised cooking at home... I can be picky on occasion but I can find something I like on any menu!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My pets, my family, music, my laptop, the kids I work with, my loom. Also, my purple hat.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My writing. I'm almost always figuring out what the next plot points should be.

I spend a lot of time pondering what cities would look like if they were abandoned.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Varies from week to week. I usually prefer quiet evenings at home, but that doesn't mean I'll turn down the opportunity to go out and have some fun downtown :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really want to take a year off and walk across America.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you want to strike up a polite conversation over a cup of coffee downtown :)

Please don't message me if you are 30 or older, or in another country or a different state. I really do mean it when I say I'm looking for people near me. No long-distance stuff, please.
