My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm me!

I'm a goofy, little-too-type-A, man who's not quite sure I'm really an adult yet. I don't know what I want to do with my life in the long term. I'm juuuust about at the point where I can call what I'm doing a "career" but I don't like that idea. I want to move around more. I want to live in a tourist city like London or Paris so that I can see what it's like outside the main roads and I'm no longer stressed about the subway system. I know that's voyeuristic and a little shallow, but...hell, that's me.

I value my sleep and people tell me I'm an old man, so I've decided to own it. I write a diary before bed and listen to soothing music when I go to sleep. I make myself a pot of tea on the weekends and do my chores in a bathrobe. I treat myself to one high-end chocolate a day. I wear bowties to work (I own about 67 accumulated over 5 years).

But I'm also a kid. I wiggle my fingers when I get excited and my whole arms when I get REALLY excited. I like to imagine I make the microwave work by telepathy. I refuse to give up my threadbare Star Wars comforter or the Winnie the Pooh I was given when I was 3 and sick with pneumonia.

I'm looking to meet people to wander the city and life as friends or partners!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just moved to Ottawa in June. The last (?) step in my long education!

I'm looking to meet people in a town where I only really know my co-workers. I like the idea of a nice slow life. I hope to grow algae on me one day, like a sloth. (Not a word of a lie. That happens...they turn green.) But really, who knows? I'm keeping my options open. For all you heiresses out there, that includes marrying rich.

I want to work overseas. I want to settle in Canada, but I want to feel like the world has coloured me a little bit before I do. "Where" depends on who's in my life and what opportunities come up.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I introspect like it's NOBODY'S business. Which I guess technically it isn't. But I like reflective conversation and getting to know people through their stories and how they see themselves. I went into healthcare so I could better get this whole humanity thing. So, let's totally talk about you and me, baby. I'm also good at outdated rap lyrics.

I bike-commute, so I guess that makes me good at travelling by bicycle? It's actually something I love even if I'm not super intense about it. Maybe I would be if I got a better seat.

I just love...communication. I like long conversations, I like writing things and reading things and watching people and getting into all the subtleties of how people and the world talks to itself. Which, yes, does mean that sometimes I need to be reminded to listen. But I'm pretty OK at taking those reminders in stride.

I'm also really good at finding snacks to eat. I need to eat constantly, like a shrew.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well, I'm tall, redheaded, and bucktoothed. Oh! I also wave my hands around when I get excited. Or, if I need to be constrained, wiggle my fingers excitedly.

I share facts regularly. I still say "here's your fact of the day" but I got called out on it. So now it's usually "here's the next fact." I just like trivia, I guess.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

My inner monologue, my computer, my books, my (mostly dead! I need new ones...ones that I will feed) cat, my smile, and my family.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Here in Ottawa, I am sitting down for drinks with friends to discuss work and life. I am overwhelmed by the food options here so I'm still just trying to find all the amazing places I can eat! If not, I'm at a friend's for board games or TV + snacks.

I've been burned a couple of times by experiences from big dancing nights out, so I'm a little hesitant. But I'll do it if I can find friends who make me comfortable.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I jump around and swing imaginary swords like I'm ten.

I also re-read my profile from time to time and don't remember writing it.
