I'm relatively outgoing person who, despite the warnings of ever after school special ever made, likes meeting new people and starting up conversations with complete strangers. I would like to think I’m an individualist, that there’s no one else quite like me, but seeing as I’ve yet to meet all 6.721 billion people in the world, I think that would be an unfair assumption to make. We’ll just say there is a very small percentage like me. I am usually chattering away about something, I hate silence and instantly think it’s awkward, so there isn’t much quiet time around me. I’m sarcastic, loud, blunt and too opinionated for my own good and love nothing more than a good, rowdy, debate on said opinions. I embrace my nerdy side. I love reading, music, and a load of other things that most humans tend to enjoy. There. Only one ellipses. I consider that a win.
I have recently moved to Vancouver, only to be brought back to Edmonton because of family, and while I detest the frigid wasteland that is my hometown in the winter months, I have decided that I may as well make the most of it since I am back. Hence this attempt at online dating. I've done it before, but admittedly, was bored after a few days and just kind of stopped. But this time it will be different. I swear. I will commit and follow through. Because I am that kind of person and in no way am I flakey or prone to starting things then forgetting them.
In general though, I still don't know what I am doing with my life. Basically trying to have fun and be happy and not get too caught up in the plans and details. I've discovered life throws curve balls, and all those well laid plans get tossed out the window anyways, so may as well just go with it.
1) Waxing poetic about complete nonsense
2) Spicing up any moment, however fleeting, with a little extra dash of awkwardness
3) Creating plausible and overly thought out survival plans to guide myself through a Zombie apocalypse.
4) Mocking hipsters
5) Writing self indulgent short stories and poetry that no one else will ever read, but using them as a means of proving to myself how much deeper I am than other people.
6) Working the phrase "You used to be cool man, you used to be cool" into conversation at least twice a day
7) Not being graceful
Books: LOTR, the Hobbit, actually, Tolkien in general. Anything by Jonathan Kellerman and Jeffery Deaver, The Life of Pi, Londonstani, The Catcher in the Rye, LAMB, Everything is Illuminated, and million others. My tastes are pretty varied. I will admit that I love the whole teen fiction craze right now. It's like skittles for my brain.
Music: I can’t classify the music I listen too, since it changes with my moods. Cop out? Yeah, but it’s true, so deal with that. Top five (at least today) are Arctic Monkeys, The Clash, Scroobius Pip, Gogol Bordello and Hawksley Workman. I can't say that these will be my top five tomorrow, or even in an hour, but that's what's blaring out of my speakers right now, so it seems appropriate. I
Movies/TV: Donnie Darko, Being John Malkovich, Never Back Down, Boondock Saints, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Sherlock, Community, Bad Reality TV, and I'm not ashamed to say it, Glee... Ok, maybe I'm a little ashamed.
Also I think a lot about socks and whether I have enough of them.
I also have never been in love. I've been in like. I've been in lust. But never love. Feels like something that someone who's almost thirty should have glimpsed by now, but alas, the closest I've come is fondness.
