My self-summary
Although I was born in Toronto, Canada, I moved to the Bay when I was 3 months old, so the foreign birth thing is mostly just a way to get street cred. As a lifer of the Berkeley/Albany/El Cerrito area, "hella" is an inherent part of my diction, despite my NOT being a skeevy stoner. While I keep telling myself I'm not one of Those Berkeley Hippies that everybody mocks, I keep noticing little things that make me think I haven't escaped their snare, i.e.
-An embarrassingly healthy culinary disposition
-I keep telling myself I should meditate [although good lord I suck at it]
-I was a feminist before guys realized saying that on their profile would get them dates. (but no, seriously, I’m really fucking serious about feminism - that shit is important)

Sadly, my psych major failed to giving me the Jedi mind-reading powers I was promised, and I have instead had to jump feet first into the professional working world. I’m the Registrar for a small vocational school, which fits with my nerd-driven desire to sort and organize things (mmmm, spreeeaaddsheeets). While I'd prefer not to have to wake up at 5:30am to get my morning swim in, looking back on a day and knowing that I've gotten things done feels good - although don’t get me wrong, slaughtering all my brain cells with an entire day of video games can be nice every once in a while - it helps me keep up my jaundice sheen.

I like exploring. I've picked up the guitar on several occasions, although never getting much better than a trained monkey. At the start of the year I started singing, and I’m ready to take the Karaoke plunge… as long as you go first. I spent 3 years studying American Sign Language, and actually started a local meetup group for signers in the East Bay. I've been out of practice for a few years, but am interested in picking it up again if I had a good partner.

Finally, I am a closet nerd. I could be an ugly, unwashed, socially retarded D&D nerd, minus the ugliness, hygiene issues, and social retardation. My sense of humor is quirky and off-beat, and we could probably chat all night about the latest sci-fi and fantasy shows (and how the Walking Dead comic is waaay better than the show).
The first things people usually notice about me
Well, other than my chiseled jawline and my rockin bod, its probably that most of my charm comes across in nerdy ways. I'm friendly but off-beat, dropping unexpected comments to pop a laugh or two. I've been described as adorkable on several occasions, which is appropriate, as it is kind of how I roll.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Archer, Dexter, South Park, Workaholics, True Blood, Being Human, Firefly, Game of Thrones, Archer (I'm a little embarrassed by that one)

MSI, Nine Inch Nails, Korn - The Glitch Mob, Ratatat, AWOL Nation - D12, Tech9, Tupac, Citizen Cope, and Obscure Brazilian body music
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I do a daily gratitude list - we have way too much to not be grateful on a daily basis.
