Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So this is where I am supposed to magically explain who I am and
what motivates me in a convenient little box. To be honest, I’m not
exactly sure how one should fill these things out. My first
reaction is to make some flippant, nonsensical rambling that, at
the very least, will manage to amuse someone. And at the most,
inspire someone to actually contact me, since I am clearly a clever
and quirky individual (as the above mentioned flippant, nonsensical
profile would establish). But this requires some sort of actual
description, so I will try to cut down on my natural long
windedness, and sum myself up in a few sentences with as few
ellipses as possible...
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.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well that's a loaded question. Would it be a cop out to say I don't
know? Until recently I was in sales, and was relatively happy and
successful at my job. But life isn't always going to be what you
expect, and the sudden move back to Edmonton had be take a position
I wouldn't have ever picked out. I am now in the Optical industry
and will be completing my Opticians diploma. Who knew I could get
such enjoyment out of shelling out glasses? Anyways, turns out,
despite considering myself a born sales person, that wasn't what I
wanted to do. Madness. I'm happy where I am now, and think I will
take the overall pay cut and make this my career instead.
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.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I guess if we're in the bragging portion, there are a few things I
excel at. In no particular order, they are;
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
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't know, I'm not other people so how can I figure out what
they notice? Way to think the questions through there OK Cupid. I
would guess it would be my loud, and somewhat obnoxious, laugh. If
I'm laughing that is, otherwise, it would probably be some banal
and cliched aspect of my appearance.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Oh man... there really are way too many to name.
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
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.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I assume this means other than the basic things one needs to
survive. So ignoring food, shelter and clothing, I would say: a
good book, a big cup of coffee, my phone, my friends, interesting
conversation and access to facebook.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I tend to think deep, mind blowing thoughts. Ones so complex that
if I wrote them here, you would never be able to look at the world
the same way again.
Also I think a lot about socks and whether I have enough of them.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out at home, reading and just generally relaxing, or
hanging out with friends and causing shenanigans and mayhem
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm terrified of David Bowie....
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.
