I am a Winnipeg transplant who moved to Toronto just over a year ago. I’m really enjoying what this city has to offer; if there’s something I want, or want to do, there is a place to get/do it. Most recently I took a hula hoop class, which was amazing (it’s impossible to be in a bad mood while hula hooping with a group of awesome ladies).
I really value trying and learning new things. I am consistently trying to be a better person and I tend to gravitate toward likeminded people. Overall I value intelligent, mindful, playful and considerate people and although I appreciate education, I know you don't need a degree to be smart.
I am into crafty things. I sew, knit, bake and cook. In the summer I get around town on my bike. Each year I aspire to ride through the winter, but I always chicken out in December and January.
I have a road bike and enjoy long rides and am hoping to do the Niagara Gran Fondo next September.
My dentist says I have lovely teeth.
My close friends describe me as adorable (their words, not mine).
My doctor says I'm quite healthy and that I have surprisingly good lung capacity.
But really, you'll have to judge for yourself.
I am currently reading some George R. R. Martin. I like Douglas Coupland (who I met once and had an awesome conversation about Malibu Rum and gatorade), Cory Doctorow, Robert Kirkman, Brian Wood. I also read a fair amount of popular fiction (i.e. the Hunger Games), It’s the librarian in me.
