I'm a delight.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm figuring it out. Right now I'm working at a French immersion preschool with two- and three-year-olds, plus doing some tutoring at Alliance Française and babysitting on the side. I like to keep busy.
I’m really good at
Listening, empathizing. Making people feel understood. Achieving a basic mastery of most things in one sitting, then never doing those things again. Being patient (so, so patient) with children.
Reading in the bath until the water's cold.
Falling asleep in tepid bath water.
The first things people usually notice about me
"Is that a wig?" (No.)
"Can I touch it?" (Definitely no.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm aggressively low-brow.
B: Nothing in the capital-L Literary canon interests me. I love shitty fantasy novels and historical fiction.
M: Pretty much anything with vampires in it. I'll tell you how the adaptation of the first Twilight movie was a revisionist attempt to round out Bella's character and make Edward less creepy, and how they almost succeeded.
S: "This year I hope senpai notices me!"
M: Stuff that'll put you to sleep or make you cry. Albums I have nearly memorized: Carrie and Lowell by Sufjan Stevens, Louder Than Bombs by the Smiths, Burn Your Fire for No Witness by Angel Olsen, A Creature I Don't Know by Laura Marling.
F: Anything. Especially if someone else is footing the bill. (If anyone wants to take my broke ass to Shaya or Compère Lapin, hint hint, wink wink.)
The six things I could never do without
A crisp breeze on a sunny day
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Mortality. Feeling bitter about capitalism.
On a typical Friday night I am
Maybe grabbing a drink with friends, maybe staying in. I only really go out on weekends these days. Kids don't give a shit if you're tired or hungover, so I've gotta stay in good shape during the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I wear really off-putting makeup and clothing as a way of hiding how nervous I am.
You should message me if
Here's the only time I'll get chatty on this goofy profile: I'm not necessarily looking for something monogamous, but I am looking for something more emotionally involved/evolved than us just Netflix-and-chillin and then pretending we don't know each other in public. Let's go on dates. Let's be nice to each other. Let's go on dates with and be nice to other people, too.
If that sounds like a cool arrangement, hit me up.
