Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a full time student in an engineering co-op program.
I love politics, science, and the internet, and it has suddenly
occurred to me that I might actually be Al Gore. I like to talk and
learn about a wide variety of things!
Aside from all this school stuff I like to pretend that I'm good at
arts and write music, experiment with film making, mess around with
graphic arts and that kind of creative stuff. I don't do this
nearly enough so finding someone who'd like to join me in
creativity sessions would be awesome.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently passing engineering at uWaterloo. As for after I get
my degree / P. Eng, I'm not 100% sure. I may end up working for a
company I've previously done a co-op term at or I may start a
company of my own (if I can dream up a good enough
Aside from school I'm also trying to learn Italian since it's part
of my heritage. I'm also trying to be more health conscious / get a
bit fitter overall. I think continual self improvement is a good
thing to strive for, even if it's only done in small steps.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Music: Keyboards/Synth/Piano, Banjo, Vocals (ish) / Remixing (
But I'd say I can write music better than I can play
- Math and "sciency" things
- Remembering useless facts
- Reciting the chemical elements in song
Disclaimer: I am capable of proper grammar and spelling, but why be
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm going to add more as I see them/think of them but here's a
tentative list of movies: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,
District 9, Fifth Element, Lord of The Rings, Sweeney Todd, Pulp
Fiction, Star Wars (original trilogy, but I can find some enjoyment
from the prequels if I don't think too much), V or Vendetta, Tron
(the original, but the new one had Daft Punk at least!), Scott
Pilgrim vs The World, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Life of
Shows: Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Spartacus,
Modern Family, IT Crowd, American Horror Story. I've been meaning
to get into Dr. Who and Adventure Time for a while now. Boston
Legal was also one of the best shows ever. I watched Firefly ages
ago and loved it, but I'm a bit ashamed to admit I forget a lot of
what happens. I'd love to watch it again...
Music: I listen to most genres, though I especially like electronic
(Daft Punk!), classical and alternative/folky rock (Barenaked
Ladies!). I'm not too into country or rap.
Food: It's easier to mention what I don't like, namely sweet
peppers and olives.
Books: I don't read as much as I would like to/should, but I tend
to like non-fiction such as a "Brief History of Time". I enjoy some
classic sci-fi as well, including "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the
Galaxy". I recently read the biography of Steve Jobs by Walter
Isaacson, a book on the physics of speech and am currently reading
a book about design principles. I think what describes my taste in
books is my interest in broadening my exposure to new ideas an
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:
1. The laws of physics
3. My Laptop
5. A piano
6. Time / all of history that lead up to my inevitable creation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The life, the universe and everything. I think of a lot of
hypothetical situations and "what if" scenarios. I'll often think
of crazy (and sometimes impractical) methods of doing things,
simply because it's interesting.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably watching Bill Maher and Mayday...or studying.
