My self-summary
I'm a PhD student; usually in the lab analyzing data or conducting neuroscience experiments that will someday change humanity. You know, mind control. Fringe science. All that. I love listening to stories and anecdotes from people's lives. This sounds somewhat off-kilter now that I'm reading it, but if you have a story to share, I'm all ears.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently writing an inspirational book and part memoir, titled "Shark Fin Soup for the Soul."

I'm also trying to get through grad school with my sanity intact. I'd like to finish my PhD this year, just after we've been annihilated by Kim Jong Un's swift and sudden attack. Professional student is a pretty apt description of my life thus far, but I'm trying to transition out of academia.

I also find languages fascinating, especially their influence in the development of civilizations. Learning Finnish has been a dream of mine for a long time. Yeah, this sounds very nerdy and probably a little pretentious. Don't let the looks fool you! I'm not a snob.
I’m really good at
I've been told that I can be opinionated, kind of like Walter.

This, unfortunately, doesn't translate that well on the internet, but I try my best :)

I can tell what a cloth is made of just by touching it.

Also, Scrabble. Bring it.

Food - anything. Really, I love to eat :) ... thin crust pizza, mixed berry pie, rare steak, oysters, Beemster cheese, and a peaty Islay single malt hold a special place in my heart.

I also love late night coffee.
The six things I could never do without
Family, friends, my dog, coffee, my subscription to "Cat Fancy", Miss Vickie's Salt and Malt Vinegar chips.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
human behaviour.

people that say blowhard statements like "good for you", "is that right?", "check your privilege", "pat yourself on the back", and "how so?"

what I should do if I'm sitting in the middle seat on a full subway car and most of the car empties, including one person next to me. Should I move to the empty seat? The person beside me might find it insulting. But if I stay where I am, s/he might wonder why I don't move one seat over and give us both more space.

why no matter how close the holes on my watch or belt are, one is always too tight and the other too loose.

what's with all the 20-something girls wearing black toques with white lettering?
On a typical Friday night I am
spending time with friends or family or messing about at home or swimming.

I also have a bucket list that I'm constantly amending, crossing things off when I achieve them and adding things when they come to me. The following is my current, but no doubt not permanent bucket list.

- Do a fire walk at a Tony Robbins seminar
- Attend a tomato festival in Italy
- Attend the ketchup festival in Idaho
- Hand forge a knife
- Hug a koala bear
- Swim with dolphins and not be attacked by them
- Complete a zumba class
- Eat a scallop in its original shell
- Swim with a manatee
- Spearhead something metaphorically
- Eat manatee meat
- Incite the Amish to violence
- Donate my beard to Locks of Love
- Be the guest judge at a dance battle
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to watch Sex and the City.

The semi-colon intimidates me; I still use it, but have no idea if I'm doing it correctly.

I'm not sure how to tie a towel around my waist without it falling off.

You should message me if
you find this bizarre misuse of logic and the English language a comedic masterpiece.

"We are evolving every year, every decade. That’s a fact, whether it is to the intensity of the sun, whether it is to, as a chiropractor, walking on cement versus anything else, whether it is running shoes or high heels."
- Gary Goodyear, Canadian Minister of Science

Also, if you agree with this Stephen Fry quote:

“It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so fucking what."
