Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Living in Guelph, going to school and working part time! I'm
looking for people to hang out with, do things with, or
Former grad student, frantic reader, and lover of British
television. I've been described as enthusiastic, bubbly, and maybe
even a little crazy. I enjoy being the life of the party, and I
like to make sure everyone's involved.
In my spare time, I love to read, listen to music, write, draw,
cook and run with my dogs, go to the gym, be crafty, and play
badminton and ultimate.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Last time I updated this I said I was taking time off before moving
into a career in sales, research or going back to school for
Turns out I'm went back to school for nursing this fall. A two year
program that ends in an RN in 2016. I'm very pleased about
Outside of work, and focusing on my health/fitness. I once worked
as a personal trainer, and I really enjoy nutrition and fitness.
Running with my dog certainly helps.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'd like to say I'm good at everything, but I'e been told it's
bad idea to lie on online profiles.
I can say I'm good at rhetoric. I know how to write and give a good
speech, and I'm good at delivering it. Same goes for presentations.
I'm also good at getting people excited about things.
I'm a good cook. I've had my fair share of disasters, but with the
exception of sweet potato pancakes, I've never had to throw
something out. I've since figured out much better ways to cook
sweet potatoes, and I make a mean pad thai and some good sushi
rolls. I also love to bake, and am willing to experiment with
flavours and decorations. Sangria cupcakes, anyone?
I can sew like you wouldn't believe. Dresses, costumes and
decorative pillows, you name it, I can probably do it. On the
creative end, there's little I don't like doing, for that matter. I
can paint, draw, and write. Don't ask me to sing, though.
I'm also pretty good at keeping active and living healthy. I've got
a bit of a sweet tooth, and I get busy with work, but I figure the
benefits of both are too good to miss out on.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I talk with my hands, and I like to get everyone involved in the
conversation. If I'm standing up, they'll also notice I'm pretty
tall for a girl.
If they're standing close enough, I've been told I have very
interesting eyes, as well.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books must be divided into categories, because I read a lot.
fiction, Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet
, or Forever Amber
by Kathleen Winsor. For Sci-Fi/Fantasy, it's a tie between

though I normally prefer fantasy. For Non-Fiction, Until You
Dead by Julian Sher, and The World Without Us
I feel I should also make mention of The List; A Love Story in
Chapters by Aneva Stout, because it's cute. For movies,

anything. Particular favourites right now are VNV Nation
, Sonata Arctica
In terms of food, I just really enjoy eating. I
don't have a particular favourite, but I do have a sweet tooth.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family and Friends, Books, Music, Research, Paper and Pens,
Food. Technically that's more than six, but I feel some
can't travel separately.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The paths I took and choices I made to get me where I am today.
What the future holds in store. What I want to create next.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with friends. Dinner and drinks are starting to become
a pretty normal thing. Otherwise I'm chilling with my dog reading
and watching TV.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a thing for really weird or bad television shows. I'm
currently hooked on Supernatural, Torchwood and Doctor Who.
I also might leave you for the sound of Alan Rickman's voice.
