I grew up in the wilds of Northwestern Ontario, so I'm sometimes a fish out of water in the city. I still often stop to gape at the CN Tower. I'm much more at home in the middle of the woods, surrounded by trees and tiny woodland creatures. My superhero name would probably be "The Woodsman" but my power set would rank only slightly above Snow White.
My hometown features in a Tim Horton's Christmas ad you may have seen. They called it the coldest place in Canada, but on the day they shot the commercial it was an uncharacteristically warm day.
For a while my profile told me I was a creationist. I'm not. I'm just the poster child for why you shouldn't answer multiple choice questions on 3 hours of sleep. Carpe noctem.
Outside of school I take pictures of things that aren't people, play music on my guitar that was written before I was born, and write stories about strange things that go bump in the night.
In my free time I try to track down live music, new bars, the best food and the secret spots around Toronto as best I can.
I think by this point I've watched every video Gordon Ramsay has on youtube...
Making breakfast for every meal. Breakfast is my domain. I am the King of Breakfast...
...making toast is always a gamble.
Movies: I love horror movies. Not a fan of slasher/gore, I prefer atmospheric horror, the scary movies that live in your head for days after you watch them. Though I'm also fond of action and comedies. Some of my favourite films are The Fountain, Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Thing ('82), and anything by Guillermo del Toro.
Music: I'm a fan of rock and blues mainly. After losing Glenn Frey, I've been listening to a lot of the Eagles lately, I was pretty much raised on that band. I'm bad at finding new music, but I try. Zeppelin, Billy Joel, Goo Goo Dolls and Alter Bridge are some more of my favourites.
TV: The Simpsons, Castle, The Flash, Doctor Who, Gravity Falls, Scrubs, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Expedition Unknown
Food: Japanese, East-Indian, Pub and breakfast.
Stories -- doesn't matter what form they come in, experiencing a good story is among the greatest pleasures in the world.
Museums -- if I could live in the ROM, the Louvre or the British Museum, I would.
Coffee -- Nectar of the gods. I'm on an endless search to find the best caramel latté in the city.
Finally, this cat. Reeally take it in. Such endless majesty. - http://i2.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/facebook/000/641/298/448.jpg
- Should I use the Oxford comma?
- Was that someone famous, and did they see me staring at them?
If you're a fan of conversations about everything and nothing.
If you have an appreciation for classic Simpsons.
If you're not against tattoos. Because at this point, there's really not much I can do about that...
