I've lived in Seattle and Sydney, but spent most of my life in a small town near Yosemite National Park.
I probably will end up teaching one day though I'm not sure what subject yet. I think I just love to help people learn, the subject does not matter. I will probably go back and finish my masters within a few years.
In conversation people notice that I pay close attention to hand movements and use hand movements to express myself a lot. I blame the Italian in me.
Movies: Miyazaki, time travel, dystopian future, mystery, or at least a lot left to the imagination... Also, I am kind of emotional about sad/happy moments in movies and I don't hide it that well.
Music: Hard to specify, I like a lot of different types of music. I tend to be drawn towards groups like Bonobo or Above and Beyond.
People who I can relate to.
Information to draw my opinions from.
Relationships in general and why people crave them / what makes for a good one.
Whether or not it's worth it to move to SF proper.
How to be the best person I can be.
But in all honesty, either exploring SF, Berkeley, or Oakland via bart. Or if it's a lazy night, playing video games and having a few beers.
Let's see, I've struggled with depression and anxiety in the past but I'm no longer medicated and very happy with my life for the most part.
I also have a ton of tall tales that no one seems to believe. Let's swap stories.
On the friendship side of things: You are sarcastic and love people watching. You are likely of high intelligence and low self esteem. Bonus points for "Daria" like depression and wit. Perhaps you enjoy drunken board game nights.
On the dating side of things: You are genuine. You are someone who cares about her opinions but also loves being ridonkulous and childlike. You love learning and growing. You are curious. You care about your body and your future. You value education. You love to figure out how and why people think the way they do. You aren't racing to acquire more things and would rather spend savings on travel. Bonus points if you go to TED.org too frequently.
