My self-summary
I'm Lan.

I write and I make coffee. I rarely sleep. I alternate between scathingly sarcastic and self-sabotagingly shy. Did I mention I rarely sleep? I rarely sleep. I daydream a lot and want to pet every dog I see. Some might call me an "intense" personality. I'm introverted but not unfriendly; I desire freedom above all else and can be incredibly stubborn. Most nights I can be found haunting 24/7 cafes and ambling around the streets hunting for the Shaw go-wifi. I like adventure; I'm a bit of a romantic in some regards.

Don't be offended if I don't reply; I find it difficult replying to messages as I seize up at the thought of initiating conversation.
What I’m doing with my life
Not sleeping. Studying linguistics occasionally. Writing a lot. Majoring in English. Petting every dog. Building cities in Minecraft and then never playing the actual game.
I’m really good at
Alienating coworkers with awkward and complex humour; texting at the speed of sound; writing stupid vignettes and coming up with novel plots I immediately discard for trivial reasons; forgetting dentist appointments
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair, my silly expressions, my tendency to sing as if I were alone, my animated way of talking and moving

Six things I could never do without
My clipboard, my record player, my internet connection, earl grey tea, my glasses, my keys?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Novel plots, characterization, and future travel plans
On a typical Friday night I am
Chasing the WiFi. 4 am trips to all-night cafes for donuts and people watching.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once pepper-sprayed a drunken frat boy on the sky train?
The two of us
