Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am apparently a list of dichotomies. I'm intellectual but not at
all studious. I get along well with most people but mostly spend
time with a small group of old friends. I'm not very outgoing by
myself but like friends that are because I like to be drawn out
both actively and socially.
I love the outdoors. I have done some very small scale backpacking
and rock climbing in the past. These days i mostly enjoy short day
hikes. I still want to try camping by kayak or any sort of boat
I spent 3 years living in Japan and teaching kindergarten at an
International School in Tokyo. While there I had the opportunity to
travel in Japan and other parts of Asia and Europe. I sadly travel
less these days but managed a trip to Prague in '09 and to Italy in
'12. When traveling I'm most interested in the history, culture and
architecture. I'm somewhat of a minimalist and not much of a
shopper. I don't keep up with fashion or sports. I do like to read
and can lose myself in a novel until I've finished it to the
expense of food and sleep. I enjoy spending time with friends
whether we're going out, sharing a meal or just hanging out
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Made a small career improvement in my depressing office job last
year and its leading to improvements in the rest of my life as
well. Contemplating some schooling to take me in a more interesting

looking for lighthouses or waterfalls, hiking etc.

I freely admit to being pop-culture illiterate. On that note I
really loved The movies: Antonia's Line, Totoro, Bride and
Prejudice, Ocean's 11, Juno.
The books: A lot of children's lit, I've gotten into romance with a
mystery/fantasy twist. It's the twist that makes it interesting.
Some fantasy and and a bit of sci-fi, some biography/biographical
fiction. I like reading about the relationships that form between
characters and as such favor series where I can follow the
character development. I'm trying to get away from the fan-fiction
habit as I waste too much of my time that way.
Music: My taste is pretty eclectic including folk, old style
rag-time/jazz and most varieties of rock. I'm pretty easy going
outside those areas as well.
Shows: yes, I like them but don't get to see many.
Food: Mexican, Indian, Japanese, Italian, Greek/mediteranian, Thai.
Not a big fan of Chinese
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Warmth, the physical as well as the social variety
Obligations/expectations. They form a bit of much needed structure
in my life though I admit I'm quite choosey about whose
expectations I bother with.
I love the outdoors and like getting out to enjoy it with
My niece and nephew, who are great at joining in low key
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Places I'd like to go or see.
Things I'd like to learn to do, get better at...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having friends over for dinner and a movie, or...
Out with friends for dinner and drinks or...
Reading a book by myself in the bath...
Mostly just emensly happy to finally have Fridays off again.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When other women complain to me about the incompetence of their
husbands I often suffer a sinking sensation that they could easily
be describing me. At least, that is, when I don't agree with them
