I'm a little bit unusual in a fun way, and I have some obscure and frequently geeky interests. I love meeting people and experiencing new things so feel free to contact me without fear of rejection although I do tend to inadvertently offend people with my personal beliefs. I'm really interested in communal living and collective farming. I also love tattoos and piercings, I only have three tattoos and a tongue piercing so far, but I'm hoping to get some other stuff done. I spend most of my time reading, writing, working and hanging out with the friends I've made so far. I love to talk about almost anything, from philosophy and anarchy to comic books and gardening, so whatever you're interested in I probably want to hear about it. I can be a little shy sometimes when I meet new people, but once you get to know me I'm very outgoing and energetic. I'm pansexual (meaning I don't base my sexual attraction on gender, I'm open to anything gender wise) and I often blur gender lines so if that bothers you we probably won't get along very well. I'm massively obsessed with punk music, I love going to live shows and moshing. Something about smashing into other people to music is just addictive. I'm also really geeky. I sometimes dress up for movie premiers.

Looking for the next mosh pit. Participating in communal living and collective farming arrangements. Pursuing adventure, writing, acting, and music. Doing what I believe in - living spontaneously. Scuba diving, traveling the world, learning as much as I can, enjoying every moment.

Writing (I want to pursue this professional), baking (especially vegan), acting (hoping to stage a play this fall), talking (I'm fun to talk to because I have energy and ideas, I listen well, and I am passionately interested in practically everything), being a friend (I'm fiercely loyal and enjoyably crazy), and generally being awesome.

Often my hair, since when it's dyed crazy colours it stands out and when it's my natural blonde random people seem to feel compelled to tell me I'm 'lucky' (which pretty much just offends me, but there you have it). I've dyed it black, brown, red, green, purple, pink, turquoise, blue, yellow, orange, and various combinations and I've had styles ranging from a purple mohawk to long blonde hair halfway down my back...

I used to think there were a lot of things I could never do without, books, music, my family, being close to nature, my friends, and my dark cave like bedroom, but when I moved to Toronto I discovered that I can in fact live without all these things when I need to, I'd just rather not.

I don't believe in typical Friday nights. One I was at a concert in the woods, before that I was at home in my pjs watching old movies, before that I was out with some people I know just creating intense memories. If you have fallen in to the trap of typical Friday nights escape before it's too late!

I'm a bit weird. Sort of hyper and crazy sometimes, and really quiet and shy other times. I also tend to be a bit nerdy. But hey, as my best friend says: love her or hate her it's quite the ride.

You seek adventure, reject protocol, dare to dream, challenge fear, and wish to relish every moment, or you don't have anything better to do on a Sunday afternoon.
I'm here for you.
