Before I moved to Toronto for university, I grew up in a small town that is pretty and surrounded by farmland, but if you want to do much of anything you have to go to at least the next town over, so if you don't drive you're basically screwed. And I hate driving. I studied abroad, came back, got my degree in anthropology, my G1 licence expired, I attempted an MA, discovered I hated grad school, and dropped out in favour of pastry school, which I finished in 2012.
All this is to say that I love the city but still appreciate my rural home, that I'm a cyclist, that I'm pretty damn brainy, that I love food, particularly sweets and baked goods, and that I'm addicted to education. I practice yoga, I read and I knit. I like cats, craft beer, sunny porches, parks, podcasts, pretty swirly flurries of snow, piles of blankets, coasting downhill on a quiet street with the wind in my face, and watching movies and TV. I'm passionate about feminism, food systems, sustainability and self-care. I'm a jack of all trades, master of few - I know a little bit about a lot of things and would probably find a lot of the rest interesting.
Also I'm really bad at writing back to people. Sorry. Nothing personal.
