Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
All told, I'm a laid-back fellow prone to fits of giddy enthusiasm.
Originally country-born, I now live in the city but enjoy escaping
it regularly, whether to camp, explore, work, or just to day-trip
and listen to music. I consider myself (and have been called):
kind, sweet, determined, witty, confident, tall, athletic, artistic
Other random anecdotes: I lived in Asia for a year and have been
known to drop what I'm doing and drive to the Whiteshell to scour
for driftwood. I like ATV's, cats, good first lines in novels,
spicy food, steel and the smell of lilacs. Also, poor grammar makes
me cringe and I've never eaten cheesecake.
I'm in good shape and staying fit is important to me. I walk a lot,
run when it isn't minus a billion and love riding my bike. I don't
find the time for TV, but I have Netflix and Youtube primed to help
me unwind after a day of teaching petulant seven year-olds.
Ideally, any potential company wouldn't begrudge me the odd
Saturday night at a Goldeyes game, or at McNally Robinson just
wandering around. I get along best with witty, easy-going people,
who on some days think themselves pretty normal, and on others
figure themselves extraordinary. If you're not geeky in some way,
be prepared: I am.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just finished my education degree, so...I guess I'm a teacher?
Actually, I'm not quite where I want to be, because I want to
enroll at RRC for a year so that I can teach Industrial Arts
('cause dammit-I want my dream job!) But hey, 'Why so late?', you
might be asking...Well, once upon a time, I chose to pursue a
career in print journalism. (Yeah, yeah...I know...). Suffice to
say, within a year or so, I plan to be teaching middle years kids
and unruly teenagers how to make stools, chess boards and wicked
shit out of metal...in a French Immersion setting, of course. In
summation: I work a lot.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
In my free time, I'm a blacksmith/metal designer/sculptor. While
it's an expensive hobby to have, it keeps me interesting and my
apartment well-decorated. I've been doing it for more than ten
years and it's paid for my school, so I'm obviously nuts about it.
I hope you like my nerdy explanations of the forging process and my
geeky enthusiasm for it.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Well, today's Friday and I'm putting off various commissions to
play with my new trip hammer and make metal nesting tables. Yeah!!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
