My self-summary
EDIT: I'll be visiting Vienna soon.

Smiley, curly haired with cartoon like imagination that kicks in full speed when listening to a joke. I often laugh a tad bit louder than other people.

Opera singer and English teacher by profession.
What I’m doing with my life
Studying philology (majoring in English); learning Spanish and Italian on the side.

Building up a life I can be proud to say I made for myself.
I’m really good at
Does an accent count? I get asked quite a lot if I'm American. It's all in the pronunciation.

Also, I've gotten into découpage lately and I think I'm not too bad. After a long day at work it's great to be creative.
The first things people usually notice about me
Is your hair naturally curly like that?!
- Yes, yes it is.
Followed by a pat on the head, testing out just how soft the curls are. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The works of:
- J. Austen
- E. Hemingway
- C. Bukowski
- V. Nabokov
- Agatha Christie
But a good book on psychology also gets the brain cells working.

Alan Watts. Enough said.

When it comes to movies a period drama makes my day!
Recent favorites - Pride and Prejudice, The Goodbye Girl, A dangerous method, Never let me go, Blue is the warmest color, The Hours, About time, Her, Adam, Lolita, Limitless, Life of Pi, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Big Fish, Wall-e, Love actually, Finding Nemo, Spirited Away, A Single Man, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof...
Comedy - Ricky Gervais (LOVE The Ricky Gervais Show), Eddie Izzard, Robin Williams (especially Weapons Of Self Destruction)
Shows - Californication, New Girl, Scrubs

Since I was raised on classical music that's what my taste revolves around - rich sounds. Something like Gipsy kings also does the trick, and I can't resist singing along to Russian and Bulgarian folk songs.
More main stream stuff that gets me pumped up in the morning - Clean Bandit, The Staves, Koop, Mika, Paloma Faith, Hudson Taylor (these guys are amazing!), Kimbra, Roisin Murphy ...

Not picky when it comes to food, but I like it spicy and with lots of veggies.
Gotta be honest here, I prefer a man who can make a pepperoni fear him!
The six things I could never do without
Music
My singing voice
H2O
Sunshine
Quiet
Socks
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- How great it would be to get lost in nature.
- What's my next travel destination?
- How and why does the human brain work this way?
- Do you ask too much if respecting someone's time is implied?
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm not working then taking a walk or attending a concert.

Sometimes I visiting the cinematheque. Much better than the mainstream crowded movie theater.

Or out dancing the night away!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Can't lick my elbow, makes me sad.
You should message me if
If all you write is "hi" don't expect a reply.
Punctuation is a must and a well formed sentence gets you a long way.

If you're up for a nice chat and want to get to know an artsy person, don't hesitate. :)

Also, any philology fans, please feel free to introduce a topic of discussion.

Or if you're up for improving your language skills I'm more than happy to take on the challenge!
