Despite my large stature and the fact that I stick out of a crowd like a sore thumb I'm a little bit shy when first meeting people. I generally come across as quiet, but I open up once I get to know someone. Part of this is also the fact that I like to think before I speak. I'm also pretty honest, if you ask me something I'll probably give you my honest opinion, like it or not.
Right of the bat, I'll admit that I'm a little bit of a geek. Ok, well, maybe more than a little bit of one. I enjoy all the stereotypical past-times like video games, board or card games, anything related to sci-fi, etc. That's not to say I don't have other interests mind you, I'm just as likely to go to a party or a bar, discuss history, politics or the news, listen to music, whatever suits my fancy. I like to consider myself well-rounded in terms of my interests.
I also have a love of the outdoors. Before coming to Ottawa I did a lot of hiking, camping, canoeing, the works. Sadly, since coming here I haven't had much a chance to continue.
If whatever your favourite past-time is isn't listed here, never fear, I'm one of those people who feels they should try things before deciding it isn't for them. So who knows, maybe your favourite hobby could become mine too one day.
