My self-summary
I was born in Halifax but have lived in Ottawa since i was five. I feel like I've kinda been too stuck in the books. I know I probably come across as brusque, cocky, arrogant, self-assured but it's all bullshit.
What I’m doing with my life
Working on my degree at Carleton University. I'm taking a Bachelor of Humanities (which isn't exactly great for jobs, but amazing) with a minor in Greco-Roman studies (also useless) and a double major in Linguistics (suprisingly useful). I know that I want a higher degree whether that means graduate studies, a professional degree, or both. Currently looking at some Linguistics grad programs, as well as International Development/Relations. We'll see.
I’m really good at
Talking. Talking at great length, talking down to people, talking people down, talking out of both sides of my mouth, talking shit, talking to trees, even talking to myself, though I get tired of listening after a while... I also like to think I'm a reasonably good student. I've done some acting, singing, and I do some basic piano. I'm working on learning guitar as well.
The first things people usually notice about me
hopefully not my nose...probably my attitude

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Anything except the task to hand. Literature, the future, gender and orientation, politics, metaphysics, existence of god, the non-existence of objective truth, novels i'll never finish, how little stuff i'm getting done, my own morality...

Though more often these days it's very pedestrian stuff like words, pop culture, and deadlines.
On a typical Friday night I am
It varies. One week I might be out till 6AM, the other I might spend the entire night on the internet, another I might be actually working on a paper.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wrote this profile originally when I was barely out of high school and only looked back recently. Now a lot of those rejections make more sense. (I still had Big Bang Theory under my favourite shows for fuck's sake)
You should message me if
You're at all interested in talking to me. I will respond to every message at least once.
