I like lively discussions on politics and ethics, people who love
what they do, library and cafe hopping, long walks through the
city, and broccoli.
What I’m doing with my life
I recently finished my master's degree, and just started working as a staffer at a labour organization in the university sector. I'm also starting to cultivate non-work/book related hobbies.
I'm interested in language, empathy, feminist criticism, cooking, politics in various forms, reading all the things, craziness, and walking (mostly in cities, not as much in "nature").
I’m really good at
Cooking, dancing, writing and editing, listening, coffee.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Writing tastes are always growing, really, but lately I've been
excited about Heather O'Neill, Teju Cole, Jasbir Puar, and Sara
Ahmed. Older favourites include Joan Didion, Alice Munro, Jeanette
Walls, Jonathan Safran Foer, Judith Butler. I also read The New
As for music, there are too many favourites to name, but recently
I've been hung up on The Knife, CocoRosie, Joanna Newsom, The
National, Chad VanGaallen, Matthew Ryan, Fleet Foxes. I've also
been rediscovering Yo La Tengo and Sleater-Kinney.
Food--yeah, I'm a fan. I particularly like really good vegan pho
(there are so many great places in Vancouver), all kinds of
noodles, and any kind of curry. I've also come late, but with much
enthusiasm, to a love of avocados.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
You, me, and how it all fits together.
More specifically, the dynamics of privilege, power, and agency.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't have too many secrets. Feel free to ask.
You should message me if
You're interesting, political, and a feminist, think we might get on well, and would like to discuss it further over a full bodied red.
By the way, I would think this would go without saying, but apparently it doesn't. I'm not going to respond to two word, or even one-line messages (unless that one line is super witty and actually says something). Essentially, if your message doesn't give any indication that you actually sent it to me, rather than every woman under 35 on the site, I won't be responding.
