I'm a 24 year old ex-politician who is currently going to Grant MacEwan University in Edmonton, Alberta. I'm in my 5th (and final) year of Bachelor of Arts, majoring in sociology and minoring in political philosophy this fall. If you go to MacEwan, you probably will recognize me as that guy who wears lederhosen. After I'm finished I want to pursue my Masters in sociology, so if you know any good places to go so or have any anecdotes about searching for Masters programs, please share!
I'm from the NWT originally and lived there most of my life. I really enjoy cooking & I love and miss nature and the northern lights and my dogs, but seeing many of my friends in the city, not to mention all the things I can do here helps compensate. Plus I go home at Christmas & for the summer.
I drink a metric shit-tonne of tea.
I can often be found complaining about the weather (probably not in the way you think), and my friends are constantly joking about how everything I make turns into stew (it doesn't... Often... I swear!). I also have a tendency to tell people to get the fuck out of my kitchen while I'm preparing for a party or something.
I invite all my professors to my parties and ONE OF THEM FINALLY CAME (to my most recent Robbie Burns supper, and he brought his wife and beer; can you say 'awesome'?!).
I feel any form of communication on a dating site is going to be tainted by lack of inflection and assumed creepiness, so if I ever message you, please understand I probably just want to talk.
Movies: (British) humour, satire, dark humour, adventure, sci-fi, historical/documentary, anything with a good storyline/compelling characters/anything by Joss Whedon/with Simon Pegg or Nick Frost. I also have a soft spot for movies other people might consider the height of cheese, such as Tremors.
Shows: Spaced, Castle, Fringe, Primeval, Tremors, Terra Nova, Supernatural, Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones, Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Farscape, X Files, Monarch of the Glen.
Music: I listen to a little of everything. metal, folk, country, hip-hop, rap, pop, rock, electronic, classical, pretty much everything besides dubstep; but even then, there are some pretty cool dubstep artists out there.
Food: Oh man, I love pineapple, green pepper, and cheese pizza; cabbage, nachos & salsa, perogies, sauerkraut, stew, veggie korma, stir-fry, bannock, potatoes, Fresca (it should be it's own food-group lol). I will try basically anything I just don't eat pork, and prefer vegetarian dishes (however I do still eat other meats on occasion).
I often get consumed by an area of research for a paper.
You should contact me if:
You need a date to a fancy get together; or if you want to come to my Robbie Burns supper on the 25th of Jan; or if you're a Link, Ganondorf, & Ike type of smash bros player; or you'd like to come enjoy some tea with me; or if you'd like to talk about my crush on Hegel or Bourdieu.
