My self-summary
I'm a tall, hazel-eyed human male originally from Lethbridge, but having lived in Edmonton for two years now. I have a bachelors degree in biology, which so far hasn't proven to be of much use.

I'm a bit of a nerd. I get really excited reading scientific research journals. I enjoy sci-fi and fantasy movies and books, and I play plenty of videogames. I'm not obsessive about any of the above, but I probably get more enjoyment from them than most people do.

I tend to be pretty quiet, but just because I don't have much to say doesn't mean I'm not interested. I don't really get small talk, and am more comfortable with silence than strings of words without real meaning. Yet I like discussing ideas and philosophies and having contemplative chats over tea.
I've been told I'm a "romantic" but also "too nice".

I'm curious, caring, honest, and secretly idealistic.
What I’m doing with my life
When I was five I really wanted to be an astronaut. It was a crushing blow when I realized tv had lied to me and you couldn't just hop in a ship, spend half an hour dodging asteroids, and then explore a variety of lush alien worlds. After that I decided I wanted to be an inventor, like Donatello.

Nowadays Plan A is a masters degree. I've started working on Master's degree at U of A. I'm in the Forestry program, but my focus is on conservation biology.

Should all else fail Plan B is windmill repair man or Captain of an airship. Someday I would like to ride in a mine cart, have my very own ball pit, visit an active volcano, and run in one of those giant hamster balls.

I've yet to cross an ocean. Eventually I'd like to experience as much of the world as possible probably starting with Guam, Iceland, Yemen, and New Zealand. All of this will be much easier once I have finished with school and can focus on becoming an airship captain.
I’m really good at
Walking. I like to wander around town, or rollerblade in the summer. And I enjoy hiking in the mountains, but don't get out there enough. I'm good at Super Mario Bros, multiple choice exams, and drinking Slurpees.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm practicing moving silently as a first step towards becoming Batman, so hopefully the answer is "nothing, because I go unnoticed by all".

In reality it's probably my height, given that I am 6'4.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Lately I've mostly been reading books for school, but some of them have proven to be really interesting, like "The Song of the Dodo" by David Quammen. Last year I read through Lois McMaster Bjold's "Vorkosigan Saga" and Hugh Howley's Silo trilogy. I also recently read "Dracula", which was surprisingly good.

My favorite movie is probably still "The Lion King"

Some shows I enjoy watching: Dexter, Sherlock, Firefly, House of Cards, Doctor Who, The Walking Dead, Community, The West Wing, Breaking Bad, Animaniacs

I listen to instrumental music, stuff that good to have in the background while running around but isn't too distracting.

I eat poultry or fish, but no mammals. I got sick of people asking why this is and came up with an elaborate story involving cannibals and some very noble whales, the truth is red meat is just far less healthy than white, and I don't really like pork.
However, I will occasionally eat bacon. Bacon seems to end up on a lot of things like chicken burgers or salads or soups or pasta sauces, and it's tasty enough for me to go along with it though I do try to avoid it if its at all convenient to do so.
I also like to consume a large quantity of fruit, dairy products, and cake.

A comfy bed with firm pillows and non-crinkley sheets
A good pair of sneakers

Nintendo, TV, Internet, or similar distractions

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Evolution
Human Nature

On a typical Friday night I am
Sitting around with a few good friends.

I live in a cool house, in a sweet neighbourhood, with some of my closest friends. I get to spend my time conversing, sharing meals, playing boardgames, video games, and/or mocking cheesy horror movies without ever leaving the house. Part of my goal in moving here was to get out of my comfort zone and gain new experiences but I need some help with that... Sometimes I let my friends drag me out for dancing. I'm fairly certain I look ridiculous while doing so, but usually have a great time regardless.

Also, my computer was very insistent that in that last sentence I actually meant to type "I'm fairly anti-cancer" which I suppose is true. If you consider yourself strongly pro-cancer we may need to battle to the death, or at least engage in a lively debate.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I often forget that I'm a grown-up. I find it strange that I'm able to do things like have a say in who the leaders of the country are, consume alcohol, and pilot a thousand pound machine at high speeds through populated areas. I'm even a productive member of society who signs leases and pays bills and buys vegetables. Who do I check with to make sure that gaining all of these responsibilities wasn't some sort of mistake?
