My self-summary
Just thought I'd give this site a try! Looking to meet interesting people, have fun, a few laughs! Probably will update this when I have more to say!

I love travelling, writing, reading, cooking, learning languages, visiting with friends and family, running, and just generally exploring and learning new things :) Hope that clears some things up!
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm in school, but I've only got a semester left. I love history, absolutely want to pursue a career in historical research or museum studies.
I’m really good at
Thinking up new things to cook, telling jokes, knowing a lot of useless facts, wearing mismatched socks
The first things people usually notice about me

I absolutely LOVE to cook, I'm all about trying new recipes and replicating comfort food I remember my dad cooking in my childhood. I have a weakness for Vietnamese food, but also A&W, whatever, don't judge. Also, word of caution: if I ever cook for you, I'll add at least 6 times the amount of garlic recommended for the dish. You have been warned...
The six things I could never do without
Friends, family, a sense of humour, gin, Slap Chop, my iPod
On a typical Friday night I am
Either out with friends at a pub or having a movie night, or just at home, working on homework or catching up with TV shows and my ginormous list of "Must Watch" movies
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Haha nope...if you wanna know something, ask! I'm usually pretty open
You should message me if
You share some of my interests and think we'd get along, or you just want to talk!
