My self-summary
I have just arrived back in Northampton after spending the last two years living and working in Vancouver.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
I spent the last two years working in Mental Health, as an intake counsellor. Basically, I listened to peoples problems and got them the help I needed.

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’m really good at
Talking; meeting people and putting people at ease, as well as making people laugh.
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.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes are big and brown and look rather Asian, even though I'm a very pale Irish girl.
I also have very red hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Yes Man, The Diceman, Cats Cradle, Lovely Bones, John Peels autobiography, A long road to freedom - Nelson Mandela, Niave Super, All my best friends are superheros, Slaughter house 5.

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!
The six things I could never do without
Music, Laughter, Honesty, Hope, Wine, Adventures
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The state of the world.... And how lucky I am to be safe and well.

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.
On a typical Friday night I am
Ideally, at a gig listening to a great band, or with friends and strangers drinking a bit too much, laughing a bit too loud, and staying up far too late.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am not a real adult right now.
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.
You should message me if
You're funny, you're friendly, you want to have some fun.

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.
