My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm lazily studious and a devoted academic. I love puns and wit. Irreverent about most things in life.

I moved to Ottawa about two years ago to pursue a Masters in Political Science. I've finally defended that damn thesis of mine and I've started my PhD.

Got back from two months in Taiwan, learning Mandarin, to start my third semester.

Aussi, je suis acadien.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Back from Taiwan. It was a swell time.

Academia. All academia.

Like I mentioned, I'm now doing my PhD in political science. I'm considering a number of paths for the next five or so years, but time will tell which one I'll definitely take.

Trying to find that balance between theory and practice that best solves issues. Lookout for my thesis: "How I Will Fix Everything: I Totally Can (For Real)."

Also, my goal is to look like Michel Foucault. Turtle necks and all.
If that fails, I'll beard my way to success.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being a hand-talker, remembering random factoids about everything, and slipping into my French accent when I have a few drinks.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height and tattoos, I'd say. I'm pretty easy to spot in a crowd.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Here are some.

So, books. Here we go:
Comte de Monte Cristo (first book I read through and through); Harry Potter series; Dune; Good Omens; Cat's Cradle; Bukowski; The Great Gatsby; Sandman; Maus; Marx; Sherlock Holmes (I still find it hilarious that there's an entire short story about gingers); Death of a Salesman; Shakespeare (Othello and Richard II especially); Lord of the Rings; The Hobbit; Camus; Shake Hands with the Devil; and, of course, all of those academic texts I pretend to read.

I'm a big fan of Spaghetti Westerns, especially Once Upon a Time in the West; all of Kubrick, but Dr Stangelove is on the top of that list; Kurosawa; Monty Python (Life of Brian is a personal favourite); The Princess Bride; Pan's Labyrinth; Star Wars (OG, of course. None of that prequel stuff); There Will Be Blood; Fight Club; Blade Runner; Amadeus; American Psycho; Godfather (I even like the third one); Life if Beautiful; Shake Hands with the Devil (amazing adaptation); C.R.A.Z.Y.; Wrath of Khan; Dracula (even with Keanu Reeves' hilarious attempt at a British accent); Fifth Element

Shows: Game of Thrones, Rome, Deep Space Nine (better than TNG, and I love Picard), most HBO, Monty Python's Flying Circus, Avatar: The Last Airbender (so awesome), M*A*S*H, Columbo (especially Columbo); I am such a fan of Classic Doctor Who it's not even funny anymore.

Music: I'm a big fan of old blues (1930s Delta) and blues rock; The Black Keys; A Tribe Called Red; Leonard Cohen; David Bowie; Jimi Hendrix; Tom Waits; Stromae; Simon and Garfunkel; Pink Floyd; Coeur de pirate; Dionysos; Beatles; Big Bad Voodoo Daddy; The Who; Gorillaz; Zeppelin; Gordon Lightfoot.
Also, I love musicals. My two tops are Les Mis (Dream Cast, of course) and Jesus Christ Superstar (Ted Neely movie. None of those recent ones).

Food: Spicy foods are great. I enjoy some Indian and Chinese foodstuff. I've been exploring many different recipes lately. A major focus on homemade cooking. I intend to start making bread like crazy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A wonderful book, a cool breeze, clever company, a nice glass of wine, board games, and Columbo.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'm a pretty big day-dreamer, so I spend a lot of time simply thinking. From the most inane to the most serious.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either hanging around the apartment with some friends, out to a pub to relax from the week's work, or saving the world. Something like that.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I used to be terrified of the dark. I'd wrap my blanket around my feet so monsters wouldn't grab them.
