My self-summary
I'd like to say I have a rather optimistic and friendly personality, not to be confused with being insincere. But I'd rather laugh at everything than spend my life taking everything so seriously. Now that growing out of being a teenager has settled me down a bit, I've realized that my goals don't have to reach so far from the stars. I'm really just looking to be able to be 100% myself around everyone. It's meant cutting a lot of ties in my life, but I'm tired of having to hide who I am from anyone.

In my spare time I love to create, or simply enjoy what others have created. Reading, watching movies and playing video games take up a lot of my time, but when I'm feeling creative I love to write myself, or sew something up. I'm an amateur at both, so I only create for myself. But the feeling of having make something make the effort worth it every time.

There are a lot of faults in my life that I'm still trying to work through, as growing up is an eternal problem we must face, but I think now I'm more accepting of the rate of change. It may not happen tomorrow, but I don't have to hate myself until I grow into the person I want to be. On the other hand I can get quite frustrated by myself if I don't meet simpler goals.

Since I was the only girl in my family growing up, I always surrounded myself with my elders. It's rubbed off on me now in that I love to be around those wiser than me. There's so much to learn, when I can find people that push my horizons it always makes my brain hurt with expanding joy. On the reverse though, I'll admit that I can be sometimes snappy when it comes to common sense, or more specifically, the frustrations of someone who lacks in common sense. I prefer an intellectual any day.
What I’m doing with my life
I've recently graduated from the University of Alberta. I'm looking to hopefully find myself a teaching position for September, and for the rest of the time I'm just working a simple job while trying to give myself some bonus points on the resume and enjoy my free time.
I’m really good at
Keeping myself and others organized with many, many, detailed lists. I have journals and notebooks strewn around everywhere, because sometimes I just can't help but keep myself put together like that. I've also been told that I have very talented fingers, and that I really shouldn't offer back rubs unless I'm willing to be there for a while.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'd love to say it would be my stunning good looks. But more like it, it's my "pot belly". Just don't punch me in it.

In actuality, I think I try to draw people in to my big smile and generally cheery behaviour. My mother used to say I was sweet as bubble gum, but, that's just the side my mom got to see.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Book- Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, The Dragon Riders of Pern, The Sword of Truth series, anything by Wilbur Smith, The Tears of Artamon series, Childhood's End, One Piece, A Song of Ice and Fire.

Movies- Kill Bill, Princess Mononoke, Judd Apatow movies, How to Train Your Dragon, Moulin Rouge, Fern Gully, Porco Roso, 28 Days Later, The Dark Knight, Inception, The Princess Bride, Yojimbo, The Maltese Falcon.

Shows- Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Criminal Minds, Supernatural, Adventure Time.

Music- I always find it hard to categorize my music tastes. It seems as if everyone else has better sounded tastes than me. But I love almost everything. I love being introduced to new sounds, so if you have the best band ever, send me their name, so I can enjoy.
Six things I could never do without
We're rather spoiled by society, so in that regard I would find it very hard to be separated from my laptop or cellphone, or losing the ability to pick up a book and read or learn. But I also would have trouble being without my friends, the ability to be myself, or a voice in this world.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
General stresses (a trait passed down from my Grandmother). I'm always thinking about what I should be doing, how I'm going to handle the events I'm seeing on my horizon or later this week. I try not to let them invade my daily life, but there is a mental checklist going on.
On a typical Friday night I am
I spend most Friday nights at home, playing video games. Don't get me wrong, I like to go out and have a good time, but I find those occasions rare in favour of good friends and a game to replay.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There's not much I'm trying to hide, but that doesn't mean I'll leave it out for people to find.
You should message me if
You have something to say, whether it be a shared interest or a curiosity. But I'm more likely to respond to people who want to talk, I find it a lot more sincere.

My current relationship status is complicated. While I am dating someone, we are both pursuing physical intimacy outside our relationship, and are fine with this.
