Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have a really hard time summarizing the sum-total of myself in a
finite space, but I shall do my best.
I've been alive for more than twenty years now and still don't
quite know myself, exactly. I recognize my likes and dislikes, of
course, but deeper and more fundamental questions still elude me.
Am I a good person? Have I done good things? Has my life made a
difference? It's really impossible for me to say when I look at the
entirety of my existence.
I do know that I am someone who approaches life with a logical,
rationalist perspective in many cases. Some have told me this is a
positive thing, and others think I live in the realm of boring
reality for longer than is healthy. I have a sardonic (sometimes
mean-spirited) sense of humour (that is nonetheless fun-loving in
nature) and I tend to be a cynic.
I don't know if any of this pap really DESCRIBES who I am. I firmly
believe that meeting and speaking to someone will always dwarf any
self-written "biography", but that is just my perspective. In any
case, I'm always up for a good conversation.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Midway through a law degree at the University of Victoria. Trying
(and, as of right now, failing) to get a job. I balance this with a
healthy amount of staring at my computer screen and being horrible
at video games.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hmm, arguing? Though, depending on who I'm talking to, it's not a
very valued skill (usually the people I pulverize in arguments). I
have a fairly adept mastery of the English language, but I usually
hate writing (they call that a "paradox", for all you troglodytes
out there). I play the piano a little, can handle myself on the
tennis court and have even been known to shoot a few, nimble rocks
on the curling rink (zomg nerd am i rite).
I'm also a very talented actor. I have about 20+ years of
experience successfully convincing my friends that I am interested
when they talk to me about their problems.
The first things people usually notice about me

Probably my sense of humour and my walk. I have a peculiar type of
each. I'm told I have a fairly noticable smile, too.
Oh, and that I don't drink, I guess. Not even a little bit. I love
hanging out with my friends at bars and whatnot, and I certainly do
not begrudge people who do drink. It just isn't very fun for me,
and thus I don't engage in it. This has some downsides, though, as
the drunkenly stupid behaviour of other people is something I have
significantly less tolerance for given my own non-inebriated
nature. Then, it becomes almost circular: maybe I am the one who
has the problem when it comes to drinking (i.e. not drinking is the
problem). I actually briefly considered that once.
And then burst out laughing.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Coca Cola
2. My laptop
3. A bout of maniacal laughter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The meaning of life.
No, sorry, that was a joke. It's such a banal and cliched question,
when you really look at it. I like thinking about problems and
problem solving and how to approach different conundrums with
different solutions. I know it sounds silly and fake, but I love
thinking about creative problem solving and shit like that.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sitting at home and wondering if all this education is worth it.
