I'm adjusting, slowly, to the exchange of daily sights of Mountains and the Pacific Ocean.... to the lift tower and the Abby park pond :D
I have a good heart, but a wrong sense of humour; self depricating, offensive, and quite often a bit surprising coming out of the mouth if a short smiley girl.
I love to laugh and am a happy person. If im not smiling, its probably because im sleeping.
I've worked a lot of things out in my time away. Namely that I am happiest when I am helping people. I had an amazingly rewarding job in Canada, and I am going to work hard on getting to where I want to be in the Mental Health field.
I like music (indie/folk/post rock/singer songwriter), so I will never turn down a gig or a festival. I love films, not really a blockbuster girl but any indie cinema and foreign films will do. And a huge stand up comedy fan, unsurprisingly.
I also like walking dogs that I've borrowed, and trying to convince my family to get a shelter dog, so I can pretend it's mine.
The perfect guy? Physically is probably a Viking (tall, broad,beardy), who has a killer smile that is used to death, someone who is funny, caring, and smart, and would look forward to going out with our small army of friends on a Friday night for a beer/gig.
But really.... If you can make me laugh, you've probably won me over.
I found it amazingly rewarding and it cemented in me what I should be doing with my life.
I've taken the summer off to spend with family and friends, as I hadn't seen them for two years, and to make a new plan, which might mean going back to school, or moving somewhere new.
I've been described as disarming, people generally feel comfortable in my company which is a trait I like a lot.
Listening; it's been part of my career for the past few years, and I hope it will continue to be. I'm good at being that person people turn to.
Making people laugh; I have little to no shame and lots and lots of embarrassingly hilarious stories that I am happy to share.
I always wished I had greater talents, like being musical or artistic or a great writer, but I've come to realise that people are my thing, and I'm fine with that.
I also have very red hair.
Films: American History X, Almost Famous, The Believer, Life Is Beautiful, Amelie, Memento, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Intouchables.
Lots of indie films and foreign cinema.
Shows: Your classics mainly - Californication, Spaced, Red Dwarf, Peepshow, Alan Partridge, GOT, Catastrophe.
Music: Sigur ros, The National, Why? The Cure, Interpol, Bears Den, Bright Eyes, Bon Iver, Dog is Dead, Daughter, Frightened Rabbit, Idlewild, Radiohead.... Plus, power ballads!
Food: I used to be really fussy.
Foods I've tried since turning 30: Tuna (yes.... Really..... I know), avocado, scallops, calamari, and beef carpaccio.
I am ridiculously proud of myself but I'm still petrified of prawns so, we have a little way to go!
How people work and what makes people do the good and bad things they do.
How amazing humanity can be. I really do believe that everyone is inately good, and the kindness that is shown every single day across the world counteracts all the shit.
If I really have to grow up or if I can just spend my life wandering around, smiling at things, and letting the universe decide what I'm doing next.
If I am responsible enough for a dog and who's dog I can borrow for walkies.
If the people I love are happy and if there is anything I can do to make them happier.
After moving back to the UK, I currently don't have a phone, a bank account, a home (I live with my mum aged 31)....
So obviously completely on track with my 5 year plan.
I'll be honest, I'm looking for someone special but I'm pretty laid back about things; I'm in no place in my life to rush in to anything as I'm not sure what my next move is.
So you might as well just send me a message.
