My self-summary
I met a guy at a party who later described me as a firecracker, and that was based solely upon my personality.

While I'm more book smart than street smart, I don't think I'd fall for a shell game. I've been told more than once that I'm pretty funny. Like most people I can be very outgoing or more subdued depending on the company. I don't suffer fools gladly but I have a lot of love and affection for the people that I'm close with.

I think traveling and being exposed to different cultures is a really important thing to do its something I get a lot of pleasure out of (I recognize traveling is not the only way to become well versed about the wider world, but there's something transformative about seeing a gothic cathedral when you're 8 year old kid) I was really lucky, being half Dutch half South African I got to see a lot of the world at a young age. As an adult I travelled by myself for a year after high school and I've taken the odd trip here and there since but I haven't had an adventure in the last few years and that's something I want to change.
What I’m doing with my life
Well the art history degree was a delight to acquire but it's not a field I want to have a career in... So from the ivory tower to the mercantile showroom floor where I sell very expensive, albeit very beautiful, tiles. Additionally I'm also attempting to develop a social media plan for the company because I'm young and apparently that's our standard feature.
I’m really good at
Baking - I've lost track if how many birthday cakes I've made. Making a big mess and then cleaning it up. Frisbee. Biking in city traffic. Drinking - a whiskey and I'm happy. Not getting lost. Remembering the minute details of stories someone told me years ago while pretending to have never heard it so I don't feel like a stalker, and then blow my cover by asking about a detail they didn't mention this time around. Being a good friend. That's a pretty good one to end on.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
As a kid I thought when you sold your house you moved into the house of the person who bought yours. And I still like the idea of this, it seems so serendipitous.
You should message me if
If you think you can teach me something new.

Or you have a Jack Russell terrier. I'm a sentimental fool for those dogs.
