My self-summary
Hiya! I'm Markie.

I moved around a lot as a kid even though I grew up in the same town (New Britain) until I was twelve.
My school education is kind of all over the place too.
Starting from elementary school I went from kindergarten to 3rd grade, homeschooled until I was eleven, then I went to a Sudbury school for a year, then went to public school for 7th grade, then went back to the Sudbury school, then after a few years of that I went back to homeschooling until I was eighteen.
During all those "adventures" I discovered Korean, Japanese, and Taiwanese pop music.
Since then it has been a big part of me and some could even say that it turned me into a fangirl.
The music and groups/artists never seem to fail to put a smile on my face during hard times, and I also like that the music seems to be less degrading towards women, unlike American music.
Ummmm... what else? I enjoy cooking/baking, taking senery and storm photos, browsing the web and watching dramas...
I also like reading manga and paranormal/supernatural romance books.
I'm an animal lover. I was always bringing home stray cats as a kid hahaha.
I'm also kinda socially awkward since I'm very shy and introverted.
What I’m doing with my life
I would have liked to have gone to hair dressing school if it wasn't for my lack of math skills and if the tuition wasn't so expensive, but right now my main priority is taking care of my mother whose health isn't well.
I’m really good at
This may seem like a bad thing to some, but I'm pretty good at being negative. I think being negative helps me look at things from a realistic point of view rather than being delusionally optimistic. I prepare for the worst outcome, and if the outcome ends up being good, then I'll celebrate.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmmmm... Probably that I always look pissed off.
I've gotten comments from three strangers in that last month saying, "Smile!", "Why so serious?". I think I always have that look on my face because I take things very seriously. And life has knocked me down a few times too many, so it's made me rough around the edges.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
The past and dreading the future.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home browsing tumblr, youtube, facebook, or watching a show.
I'm not the type to go out and party.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If I am comfortable enough with you then stuff will slowly be revealed along the way.
You should message me if
- You like Kpop

- You aren't homophobic

- You aren't a partyer

- You don't smoke, drink, or do drugs.

- You don't judge an individual based on their families past mistakes.

- You love animals

- You’re in touch with your feminine side

- You’re not a Republican

- You think that in order to start any type of romantic relationship you should be best friends first.

- You're looking for a serious relationship

- You would put in the effort to see someone if you really liked them.

- You are honest and trustworthy.
Like, if you say you're no longer using OkCupid I expect to not be seeing you logged in. Especially when you texted me just a second ago.

- You're loyal. You wouldn't throw away your current relationship just because your ex is back in town. Whether or not you didn't realize you still carried a flame for her.

- You don't play mind games

- You want to.

And just a heads up, I've been hurt (emotionally), used, and played by a guy on this site already. I care not to repeat the same thing again.
The two of us
