My self-summary
I’m currently trying to find that perfect balance between excitement and stability. I’m a fairly laid back, easy going person in general. On the surface I’m very sweet and calm, and I’ve been told I have an “old soul.” At the same time, I crave excitement and adventure. I love trying new things, travelling and exploring new places, or learning new hobbies or skills. I’m fascinated by different ways of life and want to learn as much as I can about different ways of seeing the world.

Hm, I’ll add more later, but here’s a filler for now. Things I like: laughing, reading, writing, being outdoors, travelling, going on random adventures, learning new things, craft beer, playing guitar (badly), live shows (especially outdoors!), hiking, snowboarding, heights, autumn, photography, raspberries, chocolate, coffee, green tea, etc.
What I’m doing with my life
I taught English in Japan and then worked in book publishing for awhile. I recently decided that an office job wasn’t really for me and now I’m working toward a career in mental health and addictions. I’m currently working in shelters and transitional housing, which I find incredibly rewarding. I’m learning so much every day from the people I come in contact with, and feel as though I’m actually making a (small) difference.

In my spare time I like to be active and get outdoors as much as I can. I'm trying to get back into bicycle touring, but it's hard to motivate myself during the colder months...
I’m really good at
Seeing the good in people.
The first things people usually notice about me

Food: stir frys, sushi, chocolate, coffee, tea, any kind of berry
The six things I could never do without
Family and friends, literature, music, travel/new experiences, interesting conversation, and nature
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend too much time thinking in general. About possibilities, emotions and motivations, society and what has gotten us to where we are, the universe and our place in it, etc. etc.
On a typical Friday night I am
My ideal nights out are to a pub with friends (I'm not a club person), or to see a movie or live show.
Nights in are always nice too.
You should message me if
You liked something you read and think we’d click. You want to enjoy good beer and good music, or maybe a hike (or showshoe).
