My self-summary
My name is Juliette and I have no idea what I'm doing. I wrote this out a couple of years ago and while it's still mainly true, I have to apologize if I come off as a mature adult cos damn, again, no idea. I'm terrible at this. Anyway, what I wrote before:
... I am hard-working and goal-driven with a silly and dark sense of humor. I care about helping others and learning as much as I can, whenever I can. I value honesty immensely as well as kindness to others. I have been told I can be a bit pensive and wordy, which may be obvious, but I appreciate people who are similar.
At the moment I am looking for friends and hoping it could grow from there. I am looking to meet new people with whom I have common interests and values. I am looking for friends first, then what may come, may come. I am shy but also not always sure how to respond so I'm sorry if I've seemingly ignored a message. Guilty.

I am also on the bigger end of the spectrum as far as weight goes. I will post a picture to better show it, but I am not dishonest or deceitful when it comes to how I represent myself.

INFJ, if that matters
What I’m doing with my life
I was a student and worked in retail but currently taking some time off both to reorganize myself and take care of my dad. I like to relax with a good movie, rerun, book or game (mainly MMO or even an emulator, as I don't have a console yet) but I haven't indulged in anything new in a while.

I'm currently working on being healthier so I'm going to the gym almost daily and teaching myself to cook (with help!).

I'm majoring in psychology and school is a high priority for me. I am looking for volunteer opportunities in my neighborhood as well, as I feel it would be beneficial to me in many ways and expose me to new people, too. My social life is kind of null atm, but I'm working on it and am trying to be more open to new experiences.
I’m really good at
Remembering faces and names, from what I have noticed. I also listen very well and love to learn, though I'm not sure I'm very good at it!

I can be very patient and open-minded as well.
The first things people usually notice about me
I would like to say my smile or my eyes, but perhaps it may be my weight: I do tend to take up more space than others and there is no hiding that. Next thing may be the way I speak and my voice; I can be shy and my mannerisms awkward. I have been told many times by friends that "[I] can relax and talk normally now" only to repeat that, sorry, I am not trying to act stiff or robotic and hope I'm not perceived that way!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Textbooks, classic literature, short stories, poems mainly; sci-fi (trying to get into it) and fantasy. Kurt Vonnegut, Anais Nin.
Movies: What Dreams May Come, The Mist, Pan's Labyrinth, Howl's Moving Castle, some Japanese horror -- anything interesting or different but I love Disney movies and Sci-fi too!
Music: Dead Can Dance, Goldfrapp, Regina Spektor, Queen, Metric, Blondie, The Beatles, Radiohead, Mirah, Siouxsie and the Banshees, trip hop to new wave to Beethoven and Bach-- just a mix of genres and artists that I have picked up from people over the years.
TV: I mainly watch reruns of shows I watched as kid as I find them comforting as well as documentaries and doc-like shows that are educational and entertaining. I have a hard time watching series as my interest wanes and I lack the motivation to finish it. I do like Game of Thrones, anyway. And Scrubs is silly, doofy, heartwarming love.
The six things I could never do without
Sleep. Music. History. Books. My smartphone (not materialistic; I just love having access to information so easily and quickly). Simple pleasures (more than six with that!).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Silly things. The future. Possibilities. News and humanistic concerns; psychology, history. What I should be studying / have studied. I can be a bit obsessive at times but I'm not always serious!
On a typical Friday night I am
at home, watching reruns. I'm a bit of a homebody but maybe hanging with friends and family, being silly.
You should message me if
*If you are not afraid of someone who will make you think (or to challenge or be challenged) and are not judgmental of heavier people or are shallow.

*If you would like to talk, share and are not simply looking for someone for a quick, casual thing.

*If you are an honest, sincere person who is mature and open for a connection.

And if we have similar interests or values and are a high-ish match; I tend to get confused if lower-%-matches message me or people with nothing on their profiles -- I am not sure what to say. And hopefully, if you've read some of what I have to say and understand.
