Okay I'm in Italy as a teaching assistant for art history at an American institution here. Good thing about it, is it's pretty much my dream job, and right out of college. Bad thing, I have pretty much zero peers. So it's really lonely here. I feel weird about making friends with the students, and I don't speak Italian (I'm trying to learn!! If you want to practice English and would like to help me learn Italian, that would be wonderful!)
So yup, that's where I am right now. The rest of my profile is from about a year ago, so take what you with a grain of salt, things may not be true any more.
Okay I am a teaching assistant here. One of three at my school. One is an American like me, but has been here for a year, so she has a group of friends already. The other is Italian and grew up in Florence. Other than those two, who are both very nice at least, I have no peers. It is very lonely. So message me if you want to just hang out and practice your English! I would love to make some new friends here in Florence!
oh geez, I said I'd write this thing later... now I suppose it's officially later. I keep on meaning to get my /r/okcupid reading apartmentmate to help me out...
My main squeeze is visual art, but I got a thing for all of the arts, theatre and music especially. I try and be in musicals when I have the time, but that's pretty rare. To keep up my singing I work as a singing waitress on a dinner cruise ship, so that's pretty exciting.
to the general public I'm pretty understated, that is, until you get me interested in something, then I am extremely exuberant.
Oh, and I'm 1/4th Chinese. I have the most adorable Chinese grandmother who is full of some intense stories about growing up in China in the 1900s.
I enjoy nerdy things and nerdy people. I admit I don't know all that much about video games or science fiction or computers... But I like people who do :)
I really want to go to Canada.
