I could say all the standard "I'm funny, positive, outgoing, and nice!", but I feel like that sounds too much like something you'd say at a job interview--one that would fail. So instead I'll tell you a little bit of what I DO like, and maybe then you'll get a taste of my personality (that or you'll have the odd sensation that something has gone horribly wrong...).
I like to travel, cook, garden, write, and read. Writing is a passion for me (and kind of my job...), and so is making friends and traveling the world--which I'm lucky enough to get to do. I like to knit, which is either really cool,or nerdy and horrifying depending on the person reading this. I enjoy movies from any time period and I've been known to swing dance, go to Japanese karaoke bars, prepare gourmet meals for friends, and run around in brightly colored wigs. When not looking for vintage anything, I can be found drawing or trying to pretend I'm a photographer. Talking and telling stories (or jokes) is something I excel at! As is using exclamation points, as you can tell! When I'm not writing books or nannying, I interpret for deaf children in schools.
Learning is something I do on a daily basis, as is keeping up with current events. I also speak two languages and I'm working on two more--yes gentlemen there is a brain in this head! I would really love to meet some one who can keep up a good conversation, can spell, and can tell a good joke or ten! I'm also kind of a nerd (or a geek...or both? A Neek?), and admit freely that I'm terrible at hiding it! I love video games but I'm awful at playing them. Unless its Mario Kart. Because lets face it.....it's Mario Kart.
Hopefully that gives you a little sense as to who I am. If you're still reading this it means a) you have a longer attention span than others and b) that you've reached the end of this! If you like what you see--or read--then please feel free to drop me a line!
