Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm fairly certain it's time for a profile overhaul (some day,
eventually, I swear). Nevertheless, the info below is not terribly
inaccurate. I may just be surging for a change. The biggest thing I
want to alter on here is to clarify that I am looking primarily for
friends at the moment. If more should come of that, then dandy, but
friends are a thing I lack in my current geographical location. I
seek to change that.
I am generally a cheerful person and would consider myself to be
very social (though I may take a bit to warm up at first). If I had
to stereotype myself, I would be torn between the generalities of
“nerd” and “hippie,” and would probably end up combining the two
into a “nerpie.” My sense of humor may be considered crude, but I
think I really just tell things they way they are, and don't leave
out the details most people are afraid to say. Gross things
fascinate me. (On a similar note, I'm really good at
I enjoy making food and eating food, and somehow manage to be
adventurous and picky at the same time. I want to travel as much as
possible and learn as much as possible. I love to crochet, sew, and
make anything from scratch that I can. I like to dance,
particularly swing and tango, even though I'm not all that
impressive at either - it's just fun.
I’m not really sure what I am looking for here, so if I'm confusing
you have my apologies. What I do know, is that I am
neither looking for a one night stand nor someone to marry. I like
I don't know how OKC decided I have bad manners, but their
computers must be magical, because they are probably correct,
(though they may be overestimating the severity of my poor
behavior). Also, the answers to some of my questions are probably
out of date, but I'm too lazy to fix them.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently, I am working on my M.S.Ed. so that I can teach high
I am student teaching and I love it.
I am ABSURDLY busy between taking classes, teaching classes, and
all the things associated with each of those. I typically leave my
house at 6:30am and return around 8pm, at which point I have to
start homework. As a result I have nearly given up sleeping,
eating, and being a human being.
Fortunately, I graduate in May, so I'll probably survive.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-English-ey things (knowing them, more than practicing them)
-Convincing myself I have horrible diseases
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Here is my list of guesses:
-Crazy clothes (I don't limit my costume wearing to Halloween.
Also, I love long swooshy skirts, which are slightly out of the
-Hair (I've been henna-ing it lately, which gives it a red tinge. I
know I always stare at red/reddish hair, maybe other people do
-Chest (It's a very...present...part of me.)
-Height (Usually only old and/or short people comment on this, but
I guess I'm on the taller side.)
-Accent (Well I think I sound normal, but people
frequently ask me if I'm from Canada. I am not. I did grow up less
than a half hour from the border, though.)

Movies: Miyazaki films. Other than that, movies rarely make a
lasting impression on me, no matter how much I may like them. I
feel as though to call something a "favorite" there must be some
sort of connection that is deeper than that which I feel for any
film other than a few of Miyazaki's. I'm much more one for

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
After eliminating the things I ACTUALLY could never do without
(air, water, etc.), I came up with this much more interesting list
of things I would be the most unhappy living without:
The sense of touch
Something to look forward to
Minor things to complain about
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-Things I wish I had the guts to say
-Food I can make
-Food I can eat, but not make
-Crafts I can make
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Lately, doing school work.
Ideally, somewhere with friends.
Less ideally, but still better than work, watching some good
television and working on a craft. Or reading (for funzies, not for
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I was a kid, I couldn't tell peoples' faces apart (I
identified people by coloring, clothing, build, hair, movement,
etc.). I just recently learned this is an actual thing (and not
just me sucking), and now I feel comfortable admitting that I still
occasionally have trouble with faces I'm not super familiar with.
Usually I can identify facial features now, though.
I really love teen fiction.
I think I want a kid some day in the really distant future.
I'm super neurotic (I try not to be).
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-You would like to be friends and you live in the Philadelphia area
(No offense potential long-distance friends; I am simply full up on
friends I never get to see.)
-You tend toward the left when it comes to politics
-You enjoy nerdy things
-You enjoy being outside
-You want to watch Buffy and/or paint your nails with me
-You DON'T plan on opening with "hey baby," "sup, cutie" or any
-You have more to say than "Hi, what's up?" Seriously, I'm too
awkward to figure out where to take a conversation from there.
