My self-summary
I got back in December from living in the UK for the past three years (which is almost a year ago now which is crazy!), London specifically, getting my education in pretending to be other people.

I think new friends are awesome! :D

As for dating, I have a history of open relationships and consensual non-monogamy. So if that's what you're into, brilliant. If not, I have developed a belief that relationships can be very different with different people, and should be allowed to develop in whatever direction feels right. But you are now warned of my inclinations, so…

And now for a random list of things that make me happy:

- Coffee!!! Been experimenting with cold brewing at home in an attempt to save some money. And in an attempt to find a use for all those glass bottles I've gotten from Revolver.
- Reading. I read lots. Just finished American Gods, now reading a book called Bonk.
- Radiolab!
- Music. I have calloused fingers again, and it feels so good! Wanna play??
- I am itching for my next tattoo! (I think it's going to involve a cute little octopus...)
- Autumn is the time of cosy sweaters, tea, dark beer...
- Poetry Slam!

What I’m doing with my life
Wondering what I should be doing with my life. Other than that, bike rides, yoga, my shopgirl job, music playing/writing/listening, poetry slam, plotting my book cart, hugging and cuddling my loved ones, lying on my amazing little lawn.

And... Radiolab!
I’m really good at
Seeming knowledgeable about books I haven't read. This is what I got from working in a bookstore.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm very very tall for a girl.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Favourites change a lot, but at the moment I'm very into the lost generation. Ones from that era that I've read recently include Sexus by Henry Miller; Henry and June by Anais Nin; Nightwood by Djuna Barnes; The Beautiful and Damned, and The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Also, I'm a Shakespeare nerd.

Movies: I finally saw American Psycho recently, which was brilliant. True Romance. In Bruges. Role Models made me laugh a lot. Skyfall was fun. Aaand tv shows: Homeland, The Hour, Breaking Bad, The Bridge, The Killing, Orange is the New Black, House of Cards.

Music: I put my iTunes on random and these artists came up: Der Dritte Raum (This is from a mixed album of electro-swing), Kings of Leon, Sarah Vaughan, Dananananaykroyd, Wintersleep. I listen to a lot of my bosses CDs at work, and in an effort to acquire new ones I've started getting them from thrift shops at random. Just picking them by their covers and then finding out if they're good. Turns out to be a really fun way to find new music!

Food: I love good food. I eat lots, and I like most things.
Six things I could never do without
Coffee, music, books, friends, sex, coffee
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Opening the most amazing little cafe/bar, with lots of books and old broken things, and just the right amount of rough so that you can feel relaxed but not nervous.
On a typical Friday night I am
Late night movies at the Rio are always a good option!
And sometimes just reading at home, probably. Friday is kinda the middle of my week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't know how to drive.
You should message me if
You want new friends and you think we'd get on. You can tell me about the best casual drinking holes/cafes/live music/bookshops/art galleries/illegal parties in Vancouver. You want to go on a date, and you won't get disproportionately angry if I don't reply to you. I don't want to be rude, but you may not understand the stupid volume of messages that women get on this site.
The two of us
