My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey there!

I'm Shauna and I'm sarcastic and contemplative in equal measures. Routine makes me uncomfortable. If I'm not continuously learning and evolving, I feel like I'm falling behind. I'm queer. I'm nerdy. (If you think you can beat me at 7 Wonders, Mario Kart, or MtG you should probably just send me a message now.) I'm GGG. I'm unapologetically plus size. I'm pierced and inked. Photography is my art of choice. I believe in equality. I believe in charity and paying it forward. I'm a sucker for bearded, nerdy, motorcycle riding folk. I don't care what your Myers Briggs type is. I'm a cat person and a dog person.

Things I love: alphabetized lists, animals, art, beards, being an auntie, big dogs, black cardigans, board games, Bosnia, Boston terriers, bright lipstick, burlesque, cartoons, cats, craft beer, cute shoes, Disneyland, documentaries, French bulldogs, gingers, glasses, good manners, herbal tea, hockey, improv, Indian food, IPAs, kids, kindergarten, musicals, narwhals, nerdy guys, Nintendo, pale ales, peacocks, people-first language, people who smell good, philosophy, photography, pit bulls, Prague, prime lenses, psychology, purple, road trips, sarcasm, slam poetry, the smell of coffee, SNES, sociology, stand up, strategy games, summer, sushi, tattoos, teaching, teal, Thai food, theatre, trashy reality television, turquoise, unicorns, Vegas, video games, whiskey, white wine

Things I don't: action movies, American History X, cartoons for grown-ups, cigarette smoke, cilantro, coffee, dentists, driving, drunk people, eating noises, eels, fake boobs, Fight Club, gum chewing sounds, live television, long hair, long nails, Lord of the Rings, mockumentaries, music videos with unreasonably long intros, the obsession the world has with Wes Anderson, The Office, private education, Steve Carell, soccer, subtitles, sunscreen, terms of endearment from strangers, "That's gay!"/"That's retarded!", video games with long cinematic scenes, violent movies, walking behind slow people, women who apply make-up on public transit, the words "crisp" and "moist",
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spend Monday to Friday bargaining with fish crackers, singing "The Wheels on the Bus," and perfecting yoga poses like cat, shark, and lion.

On evenings and weekends, I'm contending with hot sand at Jericho Beach, risking being hit by angry cyclists in Stanley Park, and searching Gastown for nooks that are free of urine while wielding a camera and engaging in conversation with clients.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
being an auntie, collecting novelty tea infusers, finding fun things to do on Groupon, laughing at my own jokes, planning things, making an ass of myself to make five year-olds laugh, Mario Kart, sarcasm, thrifting

I'm really not good at
applying false lashes, making small talk with strangers, riding a unicycle (even after circus lessons!), saying the alphabet backwards, texting and walking
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My tattoo. Which always seems to begin with the disclaimer, "I'm not looking at your chest, but..." :P

My laugh. Because I laugh like I mean it. Life's too short not to, right?

Trying a new restaurant, having beers with friends, dancing at a dive bar, playing Magic, or some combination of these things.
