My self-summary
I'm a Canadian transplant living in the U.K.... for the moment and until the end of the school year. Here for a good time, not a long time.

My profile is intentionally sparse because I'm somewhat guarded with people I haven't met face-to-face. Plus, there's the whole professionalism thing... I'm friendly and gregarious in person, though, especially one-on-one.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a career teacher, and I'm highly dedicated and passionate about it.
I’m really good at
Cracking wise, eating with chopsticks, laughing loudly, detecting bullshit, having in-depth one-on-one conversations about medium to large things.
The first things people usually notice about me
My massive vocabulary. Probably some sass as well, to be honest.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Top 5 Books of all time ever: Blindness by Jose Saramago, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer, East of Eden by John Steinbeck, Shakespeare's Complete Works (yes really), and Sometimes a Great Notion by Ken Kesey.

I like a lot of music, and definitely still buy new things when they come out, but I listen to podcasts and audiobooks far more often. An awful lot, in fact. If you have some excellent British podcasts I need to be listening to, send them my way!
Six things I could never do without
Mittens, books, headphones, cheap flights, technology I trust smarter people to fully understand, portmanteaux.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
systems of education. Yes, really.

Where to go on my next half-term break that will allow me to both do fun things for reasonable amounts of money AND scratch off a country or two on my fancy scratch off world map.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I secretly despise emoticons and have only ever used them for sarcastic purposes. Partly it's because I'm whatever the opposite of an early adopter is, and partly it's because I just respect punctuation so damn much.
You should message me if
....you like to laugh and talk about important things and you are looking for legit connection. I'm not planning to stay in the UK, so long term is not really a thing at this point, ifyouknowwhatImean.

I respond to 100% of messages specific to me and 0% of empty profile/shirtless pics/cut'n'paste/one word intros. I'm also only interested in interactions with a possibility of meeting, so if we're not in the same country, it's not a good match.
The two of us
