A friend asked me the other night, "are you ever unhappy?!" not because I am one of those annoyingly chipper people, but because I truly am content and exhibit a love for life! I am so blessed to have wonderful family and friends, sufficient funds to put food and drink on my table, and health that lets me sleep well at night and run well in the morning.
I have absolutely no reason to complain, but a million and one reasons to smile!
I am in love with my PhD research project. I'm trying to find a way to get more primary school-aged children learning in Africa.
I spent 10 months of last year conducting primary research on the continent and am now back in Canada writing up my findings.
It's an amazing opportunity to be able to write and research something you are so passionate about. I love finding out what makes someone else passionate and a great first date would be you telling me what makes you wake up everyday smiling.
I also looooooove whistling while skipping down the street.
That is a lie. But I do like sarcasm which is a language that can be misunderstood.
So hopefully you also speak 'sarcastic chic.'
I know I'm supposed to be writing "who I'm looking for", but I've never been one to make lists of qualities. I think by doing so you might miss something or someone awesome because you really thought that "must know 5 Shakespeare sonnets" or "must have a fondness for cayenne pepper and horses" were essentials.
So, care about yourself and care about others. Laugh at my jokes or laugh at me for making such a stupid joke.
Besides that, maybe you have something that's extraordinary...that I wouldn't even know to mention!
But I'll never know unless I know you...so send me a wink ;)
