I am generally a cheerful person and would consider myself to be very social (though I may take a bit to warm up at first). If I had to stereotype myself, I would be torn between the generalities of “nerd” and “hippie,” and would probably end up combining the two into a “nerpie.” My sense of humor may be considered crude, but I think I really just tell things they way they are, and don't leave out the details most people are afraid to say. Gross things fascinate me. (On a similar note, I'm really good at burping.)
I enjoy making food and eating food, and somehow manage to be adventurous and picky at the same time. I want to travel as much as possible and learn as much as possible. I love to crochet, sew, and make anything from scratch that I can. I like to dance, particularly swing and tango, even though I'm not all that impressive at either - it's just fun.
I’m not really sure what I am looking for here, so if I'm confusing you have my apologies. What I do know, is that I am neither looking for a one night stand nor someone to marry. I like moderation.
I don't know how OKC decided I have bad manners, but their computers must be magical, because they are probably correct, (though they may be overestimating the severity of my poor behavior). Also, the answers to some of my questions are probably out of date, but I'm too lazy to fix them.
I am student teaching and I love it.
I am ABSURDLY busy between taking classes, teaching classes, and all the things associated with each of those. I typically leave my house at 6:30am and return around 8pm, at which point I have to start homework. As a result I have nearly given up sleeping, eating, and being a human being.
Fortunately, I graduate in May, so I'll probably survive.
-English-ey things (knowing them, more than practicing them)
-Convincing myself I have horrible diseases
-Crazy clothes (I don't limit my costume wearing to Halloween. Also, I love long swooshy skirts, which are slightly out of the norm.)
-Hair (I've been henna-ing it lately, which gives it a red tinge. I know I always stare at red/reddish hair, maybe other people do too?)
-Chest (It's a very...present...part of me.)
-Height (Usually only old and/or short people comment on this, but I guess I'm on the taller side.)
-Accent (Well I think I sound normal, but people frequently ask me if I'm from Canada. I am not. I did grow up less than a half hour from the border, though.)
Movies: Miyazaki films. Other than that, movies rarely make a lasting impression on me, no matter how much I may like them. I feel as though to call something a "favorite" there must be some sort of connection that is deeper than that which I feel for any film other than a few of Miyazaki's. I'm much more one for television series'.
Television: Star Trek: The Next Generation, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Cowboy Bebop, Firefly, The Walking Dead, A Game of Thrones
Music: The Arcade Fire, The Dresden Dolls, Lady Gaga, Linkin Park, Mates of State, Metric, Muse, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
Food: Peanut butter. If you're allergic to it there's a good chance I'd accidentally kill you. Accidentally.
Other: Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog, Hyperbole and a Half
The sense of touch
Something to look forward to
Minor things to complain about
-Things I wish I had the guts to say
-Food I can make
-Food I can eat, but not make
-Crafts I can make
Ideally, somewhere with friends.
Less ideally, but still better than work, watching some good television and working on a craft. Or reading (for funzies, not for school).
I really love teen fiction.
I think I want a kid some day in the really distant future. Eww.
I'm super neurotic (I try not to be).
-You tend toward the left when it comes to politics
-You enjoy nerdy things
-You enjoy being outside
-You want to watch Buffy and/or paint your nails with me
-You DON'T plan on opening with "hey baby," "sup, cutie" or any variation thereof
-You have more to say than "Hi, what's up?" Seriously, I'm too awkward to figure out where to take a conversation from there.
