My self-summary
God is dead. Marx is dead. And I'm not feeling so well myself.

My name is Victoria. My Myers-Briggs personality type is ISBN.

I am not skinny, but I've got point control.

I also have a betta fish named the Major General Marquis de Lafayette, and a cat named Mimoy who loves everyone, and therefore is useless at detecting serial killers.
What I’m doing with my life
Writer studying writing at UBC. TV/Screen/NF

I recently quit my cooking job in an attempt to find work that doesn't make me feel like a worthless drone. To that end, I'll be interning at a nonprofit beginning January.

I also have a film school degree from when a terrabyte cost $1,000 and was the size of a textbook.

I fence. The verb, not the noun.
I’m really good at
- taking transit
- student aid
- food
- saying one thing and doing that very same thing
- keeping my betta fish alive. This one has a learning curve.
- seeing things as they are rather than how I wish they were
- consequently, balancing my ambitions with my anxiety
The first things people usually notice about me
I am intense. I am emotionally high energy. I am painfully witty. I have an unquiet mind. I can get a little dark at times.

I do not tend towards subtlety. I'm not a very good liar. I keep a loaded fuck off in my holster at all times, but I will also make a hot meal for anyone I care about.

I am objectively a good writer. This does not mean I will be a successful writer. But I have cultivated a good facility for words, story and craft.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This is a sample, and you can skip it, but I think it demonstrates that I like a lot of cool shit.

The six things I could never do without
moleskine notebooks (or an adequate knock off)
ipod classic 80 GB - black
contigo water bottle
timbuk2 bag
compass card
my fencing gear
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- Fresh fruit
- Xiao long bao
- Destroying my boyfriend at Civ 5. I'm getting close.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing different things in different parallel universes, but avoiding Granville Street in all of them.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Telling me to be "happier" is the fastest way to make me frustrated. I am naturally mercurial, and the best way to make me happy is to have a tolerant spirit, and appreciate my flaws. I'm fun to be around, but I feel a lot of pressure to be "on" all the time, and it can be exhausting for everyone.
You should message me if
If you're on board with ethical non-monogamy.

If you actually need to enjoy the company of the person you're with, regardless of whether or not the sex is just a one time hookup.

If you like ladies with some squish. No apologies here. None.

If you aren't boring. Or a libertarian. Or a burner. Or describe yourself as part of "the scene".

You aren't just travelling to or through Vancouver. I get a surprising amount of messages from men who mistake me for a tourist attraction.
