I have a penchant for the weird, fantastic, and original. I also have a penchant for words like "penchant".
I'm very talkative and extroverted, but my favourite people are usually the ones who seem quiet at first. You always seem to have more to say.
My goal is to teach design, once I'm finished my education.
I'm currently working under a co-op term, doing a couple of graphic design jobs. Getting experience in the things I love to do and the things I want to teach (generally those are the same things)
I take pride in my ability to describe something in a way that makes it easy to understand for everyone.
It's a useful skill to have when you're into things that have names in other languages.
People are sometimes surprised by how passionate I can get while talking about leeks, letters, colours, cephalopods, etc.
Type Heresy / The Ten Commandments of Typography
Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind (anything Miyazaki – but that's the favourite)
The Fifth Element
Micachu and the Shapes
Squids (particularly Architeuthis)
double-story lower-case A's
Cabbage (all members of the Brassica family, really)
Karaoke (even if it's by myself in the car)
(is that seven things?)
(but not at the same time – not usually)
I've caught the letter-bug. I can't look at printed words without exploring the curves and nuances of the letters with my eyes. I find them endlessly interesting, and I think it's neat that they are practically invisible to some people.
I'm always thinking about what I'm going to make next – putting flavours together in my head. I love to imagine new dishes, whether I make them or not.
There is no day or mood that can't be improved for me by getting in the kitchen.
'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe. . . and well, you know how those kinds of night turn out.
This happens to me with really good songs as well.
I'll also cry hard at concerts. But that isn't as private or as unusual, is it?
I love to cry though. Feels good, man.
If you consider yourself an original.
If you agree that being normal is kinda boring.
