I am a collection of organic molecules called Rochele. She/her. Body positive, intersectional feminist. Seamstress for the band. Made of love and swear words. INFJ. Taurus. Ravenclaw, with Gryffindor tendencies. Quirky. ADHD. Glasses enthusiast. Sucker for bespoke haircare.
I live in Vancouver-ish, BC. I love a clear, blue sky and I enjoy waking up with the birds. My cats also enjoy waking up with the birds, and talking to the birds, and ruffling the curtains to stalk the birds. Okay, maybe I am up with the birds but not by choice. It’s definitely my cats’ choice. I don’t hate it.
What I’m doing with my life: Not a lot for the moment, but I’m trying to sort that part out. I fill my spare time by trying new recipes, enjoying a hot bath, and reading. Occasionally I can be found behind my sewing machine or telescope. In warmer months you’ll find me ignoring my garden.
I’m really good at knowing what you’re thinking without having to ask. And cooking, I’m really good at cooking. And reading out loud. I’d like to think I’m good at singing, but my cats give some wicked side-eye whenever I start to warm up.
Favourite books, movies, shows, music, and food: My favourite books are the ones that leave me feeling shattered when they’re over, the ones without justice and resolution. I am a sucker for British TV dramas. My favourite movies are The Princess Bride, Interstellar, anything Wes Anderson. I adore music, all kinds. My one true love is food, and I enjoy the challenge of making almost everything for myself, but there is a special place in my heart for sushi; so much so that my Twitter name was/is (depending on the moment) SpicyTunaRo.
Six things I could never do without: My family, my cats, music, books, food, and the bath.
I spend a lot of time thinking about: My dreams and what they mean in my waking life. I probably spend too much time thinking about them. They could just be dreams, after all.
On a typical Friday night, I am: Asleep by 9:45pm unless someone I really love has asked me to go out and then hopefully I’m sipping cocktails and enjoying their precious company.
