My self-summary
Please learn to read carefully before talking to me...gosh aren't I snooty?

Edit: Literally everything below is true but I should also note that I don't live in GR. We moved to Ohio like 2 years ago but A) I don't really want my students finding my profile and B) Ohio is not really my scene.

If you think I look like I would be good for cybering one night while you're horny and bored, think again. I don't play nice and you'll end up thinking I'm a bitch. That's the way of the world.

I am 31, a knitter. I am a teacher. I work at a small liberal arts college in Ohio. I like cold weather. knitting weather. I'm passionate about sociology, history, social justice. Hobbies also include reading and cooking. I seem like the perfect 50's housewife because I enjoy domestic arts but I'm a true modern lady.

I don't like being told what to do unsolicited. If I ask for help, that's different. But if I were you, I wouldn't go about presuming to know what I like or want. And it's usually a bad idea to tell me what I like or want.

I don't like it when strangers refer to me with pet names. That probably includes you.

I have two cats that I'm super into. One I chose because of his glowing personality. The other I took in and discovered an entirely different animal than everyone previously had met. I will talk about them for a long time so maybe don't get my started.

My dream purchases: I currently would like a starter home in a place not here. Also the pasta attachment for my stand up mixer (it's been six years and I still can't bring myself to buy it).

I'm short, I sing in the car...I like nerds.

I have a husband. He's on here too. but we aren't THAT kind of couple. You know...the "looking for more" kind that have a joint profile or whatever and comes off really sketch? Just me encountering these? I doubt it. And I don't mean "I have a husband but I don't like him". So don't get any ideas about how I'll be leaving him. I won't.

I am social, abrasive, and ridiculous
What I’m doing with my life
Reading. Always a book due...

I work at a small university with international students. It's pretty swell actually.

My newest hobby is quilting. I'm not as good at it as I am with my other hobbies but it's challenging and that is a very important component to a hobby for me.

I have completed my goal of making my profile "100 percent!"edit: they have upped the ante. I now need to judge like 100 of you to get back to my full 100%. curse you OKC.... If you can't tell, I like small goals; and I like things to be complete even though I'm TERRIBLE with finishing projects. This is ridiculously contradictory you say? Yes I know, deal with it.
I’m really good at
knitting, teaching, reading, sociology, social science, buying super cute korean nick knacks, using the internet for long hours, cooking.
The first things people usually notice about me
My name, my hair, my boobs, apparently my smile but i think this is just code for boobs, my eyes are also another favorite.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Childrens' fantasy, A Brave New World, I think teen fiction is highly overrated (twilight and i are not friends...sorry!) and I'm usually pretty bored with "adult" books. I mostly like to read things that could never happen, non-fiction (like sociology books or history books or political science books), or books about dystopia.

Movies: Sci Fi (LOTR, Star Wars, Star Trek, ect.) Love Actually, Romeo and Juliet. I hate howard the fucking duck

Music: Rock. Weezer, sleater-kinney, foo fighters, paramore...a lot of lame emo stuff like Funeral for a friend and brand new and shit. I can't stop being a 14 year old girl when i listen to music. deal. Confession: I LOVE k-pop. 2NE1, Afterschool, SUJU, 2pm, t-ara, kara, brown eyed girls, B2ST, TVXQ/DBSK... I totally know them all and can't stop listening. however, I don't like big bang; i think they look like tools. It has been pointed out that I did not mention SNSD. I do love them, but they worked really hard for that love. We can discuss it if you want. New fav. song: "I got a boy" by SNSD. i don't know how you can't love this song.

Food: I love spicy food. So korean food is rad in all sorts of ways. thankyou korea for kimchi. umm i love chocolate. i love vegetables. like onions, peppers, carrots, spinach, mushrooms...this is all good stuff. i like meat. i'm not a vegetarian. but i get along with them. i used to not like pork but i moved to korea and that's just too hard.
Six things I could never do without
The internet, Yarn, toothpaste, I used to say potatoes but my fiance hates them and i've found I was wrong. i can in fact live without potatoes. socks! i'm addicted to buying cute socks. my cat, books.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
sociology, yarn, teaching, my cats, i'm a very boring person.

How many cute face masks is too many? How many cute planners is too many? How many cute socks is too many? How many cute and grammatically incorrect korean letter sets is too many? The answer to all of these questions always ends up being "there is no such thing as 'too many'."

They changed the children section! maybe someone is actually reading my profile hmmm?

However, OKcupid doesn't know what ethnicity is. For example: it says my ethnicity is black and white. this is not true. that is my race. if anything my ethnicity is American. the same with "asian" ...ummm there are like 83 different ethnicities under the race category of asian; get it together OKC, ethnicity isn't just a nice way to ask people what their race is...they aren't the same. I have seen Indian, which IS an ethnicity, so sometimes they know...but even then...India has dozens of languages and ethnic groups. like really who's your sociologist? you should hire me instead.
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm not at home being boring I'm probably doing a program for my students. Sometimes I'm at synagogue. But more often than not I'm in the throws of some creative tangent.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i love that OKC says i'm REALLY not into exercise. which is true. I don't like it. but i do DO it. but don't expect me to be like "oh, 5k marathon! count me in!" cuz i'll laugh in your face.

oh i hate bananas. and tofu.
I read magazines backwards.
strong wind makes my nose run and my eyes water...so i always look like i've been crying when i come in from the cold.

i find the diet part of the profile fun. i find myself really jealous at times of people that keep kosher but have never found it compelling enough for me to go kashrut.
You should message me if
You actually read this. I may want to be more specific. Perhaps you might want to re-evaluate messaging me if you: aren't a feminist, are extremely religious, are homophobic or find yourself making arguments like "well i have no problem with it as long as it's not thrown in my face", think being called anti-patriotic is just about one of the worst insults, don't like to sit about and do "indoor activities", don't like to do things for the lols, don't like candy.

seriously, people that don't like candy can't be my friend. very important!!!

oh and activity partners for me DOESN'T mean casual sex or sex related activities...i meant like "lets do hobbies together like we are 11!"
The two of us
