My self-summary
I graduated from a University in the UK a couple years ago and have a lot of friends overseas. I'm planning on going visiting at some point in the not too distant future!! I like to be outside, gardening and walking/ light hiking. I miss living in a place where I can walk to anything I need. My stories are flamboyant, exaggerated, loud... and very entertaining!! I love my family (extended and otherwise) and enjoy spending time with them.

As far as dates go, I would much rather grab my telescope and go star gazing, or do something creative than go to a trendy restaurant. That said, every once in a while a fancy meal is VERY nice... It's all about balance. I enjoy cooking, and I make a mean roast, so if you like traditional Sunday dinner, message me!

I am NOT looking for someone to take care of me (although if I'm sick, that would be lovely) I am looking for someone who will challenge me intellectually, argue with me if it is warranted, support me when life's challenges get overwhelming, be my partner in crime/ life/ eating Ben & Jerry's in bed while watching movies, and let me do the same for them. I do not do relationship drama... just as a matter of course.... And I love to cuddle. Just saying.
What I’m doing with my life
Working a few jobs at the moment with an eye toward completing a PhD proposal and getting funding to do said PhD. GOD! I miss academia SO MUCH!!! In the mean time I am doing as much theatre as I can be cast in, or a get any job in. If I'm in a theatre, I am a happy girl.
I’m really good at
Shakespeare. I'm also a pretty good singer. I have also been told that I'm quite funny... not funny looking, just funny. ;) And I give GREAT hugs. Several people have said so, and I don't think it is something people usually comment on... so it must be true!!
The first things people usually notice about me
It might be the laugh... If I laugh really hard I snort...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Book Thief, Miss Marple and the Cormoran Strike Novels... really, anything that is a mystery novel will lock me down for a day or two.
Movie: anything old, but especially Roman Holiday
Show: Rizzoli and Isles, Castle, Bones... again with the mystery theme...
Music: calming, slightly folksy stuff. Lisa Hannigan, Mumford and Sons, Nick Drake etc.
Food: FOOD!! My Vietnamese flat-mate once gave me a candied chicken foot, and I ate it. It was actually pretty good... mind you, that was on one of those rare occasions when I was well and truly sloshed... but I think if offered, I would try it again sober.
Six things I could never do without
My family
My WONDERFUL friends
Complete works of Shakespeare
Complete Sherlock Holmes
My garden
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Arts and Crafts... I like to make pretty things.
I also spend a great deal of time thinking about "The Winter's Tale" and Shakespeare's other romances...
On a typical Friday night I am
asleep, or watching TV, or out with one of my friends, trying desperately to get into trouble and failing miserably.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like to sit in my bathtub with the shower and overhead heater on and watch documentaries. The shower head is over the bathtub... just to clarify. It is like being in a warm rain; surprisingly pleasant, and the most un-eco-friendly thing ever. I'm trying to curb this particular eccentricity.
You should message me if
...you enjoyed attending lectures at University. If you have ambitions and are motivated to achieve them. If you like home made dinners, and if you enjoy a good cuddle.

If you are looking for a hang out buddy, and think we would hit it off as friends, say so. I very much like making a new friend!

And please, if you are messaging me, appeal to my intellect. I prefer conversations to banter.
The two of us
