My self-summary
I was born in London and moved to Troy,MI when I was 14 years old. . Besides that,I'm a good laugh and love socializing and am always interested in new avenues of potential :)
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated with a BA in English Lit. last year and then earned a TESOL teaching certificate through University of Cambridge and so am a qualified ESL teacher. (My first experience was teaching Italian teens from Bologna and Napoli in NYC this past summer!) At the moment, I'm taking a break from my second Bachelor's (in Sociology) and am working at Arthur Murray Dance Studios as a full time teacher :)
I’m really good at
Getting a laugh out of people, starting and holding good and more than often deep,intelligent and non-commonplace conversations, writing, soccer, dancing, boxing/martial arts (taken KungFu, Tae Kwon Do and currently studying Jeet Kune Do and Sungkite Kali Derecho :)
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes which are unusually Green for a North Indian haha. My mixed accent(half of it is pure English and the other is Midwestern. The cockney/London slang part comes out really strongly when I get comfortable with people, or during serious conversations,haha!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A small glimpse into my tastes:

Books: Complete Works of Shakespeare,Brave New World(and other dystopic lit).Doors of Perception & Heaven and Hell. I loved Anne Rice during high school and need to give Poppy Z.Brite a go.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
the direction my life is heading in, my schoolwork, Jeet Kune Do, Dancing (mostly school figures) and books, music. Metaphysics and the nature of Reality...
On a typical Friday night I am
At Arthur Murray instructing or dancing :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Even though I am pretty much just dating and looking for a good adventure, a part of me definitely wishes to meet someone who is a combination of all the cool randomness that I dig about the opposite sex, and having them be into me for all the right reasons.
The two of us
