Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a quirky girl who loves to laugh; I believe if you can't laugh
at yourself, you're missing out on some of life's best jokes. I'm
very optimistic and my friends say that I have a bubbly
personality. I have a rebel streak that I am trying to cultivate
I am a contemplative soul who can’t sit still, I aim to enjoy every
second of my life, whether it is the exciting new activities that I
try, or taking a moment to enjoy the comfort of a well loved
I ride horses, as often as I can, and that has made me enjoy being
outdoors a lot more than I liked when I was younger. I love cycling
in the nature park that's just down the road; although it annoys my
friends and family that I have fun in the challenge of tackling all
the hills in a higher gear. (Some people call it stubbornness, so I
suppose I can be obstinate sometimes too.)
I love to have a good time, which is usually those days when I can
just come home and curl up on the couch with a book or a movie. I'm
willing to go out more, but it has to be with the right
My parents, brother and I moved to Canada from South Africa when I
was a teenager; so they are all very important to me; as are the
opportunities I would have missed if we hadn't made the move. I was
upset at first, obviously; as a teenager, I wasn't fond of change
but I was forced to adapt, and the move taught me an important
lesson: To give new things a chance.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently enjoying a quiet summer in a library; the quiet is
nice as it gives me a chance to focus on other things: for example,
the archeological course I'm taking for fun and interest's sake.
History has always fascinated me, so it's nice to be given a chance
to study it at leisure between work hours.
I maintain the library's website, which I stimulating enough to
keep me challenged but happy at the same time. Coding makes sense
to me, and thus I'm always on the lookout for new features that
could potentially be added to the site.
I’m really good at

relationship, and I endeavor to live up to my own standards
Knowing the song, but not the title at first note hearing; Name

I enjoy a little competition, but I'm good at keeping it below the
life-or-death point. Competitive, but losing is not the end of the
I'm good at listening without judgement.
I am extremely talented at cuddling.

My eyes light up when I laugh; and everyone thinks they know where
my accent is from but they usually guess wrong!

Comfort Movies: ...say a lot about a person. My
comfort movies are Speed, Sahara,
and the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy, incl.
bonus content from the extended editions (totally counts as one.) I
like to forget troubles in healthy explosions, gunfights, and a few
really epic battles. I am excited to see the behind-the-scenes of
The Hobbit more than I am to see the extra 13 minutes.
TV Shows: These change every Fall-Spring season,
but my current favourites are Grimm,
Hannibal and Teen Wolf. I have

rock to kpop, and everything in between.

Finding that one line in a book, a song, a TV show, a movie, or a
video game that just makes sense.

watching it happen or feeling it myself, there is nothing like it.

I'd unwind from the week by going for a ride; on bike or on horse,
and when I got home afterwards, I would take a scalding hot shower,
call up some friends.
We'd either stay in, and I'd cook some delicious pasta dish, or
we'd try to go out somewhere fun and slightly embarrassing, like a
karaoke bar. I'd sing an awesome song, probably from the 80's or
When I got home, I would play with my cat a little, pretend not to
laugh at him, and read a book or play a video game until the early
hours of the morning.
