My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
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.

There are really two main things that dominate my life: reading and sewing.

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'm surprised I wasn't born in a library because for as long as I can remember, I've always had my nose in a book.

As for sewing, I'm following my dream of pursuing costuming as a career. I've been sewing since I was 13 and currently half my living room is my studio. Sometimes I'm up at 1 am ruffling tulle like a madwoman.

I started listening to CBC Radio One recently as background noise for when I'm working on homework or a project and it's great! Am I turning into an old lady yet?

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 (just finishing up my last year!)
- also works at the library when not at school
- formerly studied literature and a bit of philosophy and political science
- formerly worked at a psychobiological lab with human blood at UBC
- yes, I do sew my own clothes when I have the time

Other passions:
- ballet and lyrical jazz dance classes
- knitting
- board games
- baking cookies to give away
- 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.

Being silly. I don't take myself very seriously and my default status for most situations is to laugh and smile. I'm kind of like Dr. Hibbert.

And dancing! I went out dancing with a friend and their art school friends one night. The next day my friend was telling me everyone was impressed with my moves. "Is she a pro??" (Not quite but I've got decent musicality. Ya gotta groove with the rhythm.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hands, as weird as this sounds. I have a few funny anecdotes of people noticing my hands and I've actually been a hand double in a short film. The universe seems to be telling me I should become a hand model.

Freckles. I have Asian freckles like Lucy Liu.

Probably my sense of style. I tend to stand out in a crowd, looking like the heroine from a Miyazaki film or some sort of rock n' roll French girl. As much as I love putting together unique outfits, I've got quite the collection of nerdy t-shirts that I'll throw on when I just want to be the girl next door. I used to volunteer as an Eco Ranger for Stanley Park during the summers so I know how to get down and dirty yanking English Ivy from the roots or wading around in Lost Lagoon snipping Yellow Flag Iris. (They're invasive plant species that need constant management!)

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.
I appreciate both "high" and "low" culture -- one moment I'm laughing my ass off at a shitty, low budget B-horror movie and the next moment I'm binge reading a book that was nominated for a Man Booker award. I have an open mind and appreciate things for what they are.

- I love classic literature, literary fiction, and non-fiction. To give you an idea of the breadth of what I've read, so far I've read about 400 books in my life of a variety of genres and authors. I really don't feel it's enough though so I'll keep on reading till the day I'm dead. I love talking about books! *hint hint* Just finished After Dark by Haruki Murakami. Currently reading Slade House by David Mitchell.

"Don't point that gun at him. He's an unpaid intern."
- I'm a bit of a cinephile and watch as many movies of all genres as I possibly can, often at the Rio or Cinematheque. No genre or era of film is unwatchable for me although there might be specific films I won't want to watch like Twilight...

- 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, Twin Peaks, and Simpsons which I can quote ad nauseam.

- 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. Soul, indie rock, dream pop, jazz, rockabilly, electronica, alternative, and more; from Erik Satie to Matchbox Twenty, or Miles Davis to Wanda Jackson -- I'll listen to pretty much any genre and usually find something I like.

- 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 multiple times).

I'm never a snob and I love the things I love with gusto. I'm not content with liking the same things day-in-day-out. Recommendations are great!
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 is boring).
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?
Anything from helping a friend load a U-Haul, having breakfast for dinner, throwing a party at my place, staying in alone to binge read a book, or out dancing late into the night.

I prioritize two things: my friends (either helping them or spending time with them) and having fun however the hell I want.
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 PANTS?"

I have a crush on Steve Carell. And Stephen Colbert. Note their initials are both "S.C." Hrm...But I also have a crush on young Stephen Hawking. Maybe I just have a thing for Stephens and their variants?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think giving someone a hard time is a lot of fun. I'd love to meet someone I can sass and who will sass right back. I don't expect a witty first message though, that's too much pressure to put on someone! I'm kind of a zombie in that I care more about brains than looks.

I adore genuine people.
