Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My profile used to be extensive and was a great indicator of what
sort of person I am. I decided to try to strip it down to the
basics and just be blunt about everything. It's probably still
longer than your average OKC profile...
I've always got a book with me wherever I go and I only purchase
purses that can fit a standard hardcover book inside it. I've been
told I'm too kind for my own good and I spoil people with my
thoughtfulness. I'm very sweet but there's an "edge" here as well.
Think Maggie Gyllenhaal from Stranger Than Fiction -- she'll bake
you sugar cookies with a large dollop of extra sass.
Call me: a sapiophile, an autodidact, a daydreamer, and an
irreverent, mischievous gamine.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Point form to keep this succinct:
- Jill-of-all-trades type of woman
- currently studies costume design full-time
- also works at the library
- formerly studied literature, philosophy, and political
- formerly worked at a biological lab with human blood at UBC
- yes, I do sew my own clothes when I have the time
- ballet and lyrical jazz dance classes
- board games
- plotting the next skill or activity I want to master
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Sewing. Duh! And reading while I walk.
Being witty and clever with words. I have a sharp tongue and a
biting sense of humour. This is partially influenced by British
comedies and my family.
Being incredibly polite, especially to waiters and anyone working
in customer service. But once someone spends more time with me,
they realize I'm also a foul-mouthed sailor.
And being silly. I don't take myself very seriously and my default
status for most situations is to laugh and smile.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height? I'm adorably miniature in many ways.
Probably my sense of style. I tend to stand out in a crowd. For
instance, I have a summer hat that's very Audrey Hepburn or perhaps
the sort of hat a girl in a Miyazaki film would wear.
Freckles. I have Asian freckles like Lucy Liu.
I also often speak too excitedly about things I'm passionate about.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
All you need to know is:
- I'm a book worm who reads as much as I possibly can. I love
classic literature, modern literary fiction, and non-fiction.
Sometimes I sneak a graphic novel into my queue but I prioritize
literature. I love talking about books! *hint hint*
- I'm a bit of a cinephile and watch as many movies of all genres
as I possibly can. I have a true love of film from French New Wave
to 80's action flicks to campy horror films (one of my favourite
genres). I'm a regular at the Rio and Cinematheque. I've just
recently discovered Vancity cause I went to a screening at VIFF!
Why have I been an idiot and missed out on them for years.
- I don't have that much time for TV but I make time for Game of
Thrones, Sherlock, and House of Cards. My newest favourite show is
True Detective. Old favourites are Xena, Star Trek, and Simpsons
which I can quote ad nauseum.
- My music collection is eclectic and weird. I have sugary pop
songs people think are crap intermingled with the obscurest stuff
no one has ever heard of. I was on a jazz kick all summer so there
are a ton of jazz CDs from work in my apartment now. I'm always
listening to my mp3 player and resisting the urge to dance or sing
- Food? I eat sushi at least once a week if not more. I am an
adventurous eater and will always try anything once (if not
I'm never a snob and I love the things I love with gusto. Always up
for new recommendations and broadening my horizons.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Witty brains, kind hearts, silliness, a good book, all of my
friends (yes, all of them), and of course my glasses (boring answer
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How everything's finally coming up Milhouse!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sadly, probably doing homework these days. This is what happens
when you're trying to reach and maintain A+ marks. *sigh* I make
time for my friends and family too...but lately on a rotational
I used to be part of a weekly hardcore board gaming group but I've
had to scale back due to school. :(
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I sit around in my underwear 99% of the time at home. It's cute
underwear with lace and bows. Pants? I refuse to wear pants!
"I hope he tells us to burn our pants...DON'T YOU HATE
I have a crush on Steve Carell. And Stephen Colbert. Note their
initials are both "S.C." Hrm...
