My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a neuroscience PhD student and have spent the better part of a decade poking brains with electrodes. You know, mind control, fringe science.... I also love listening to stories and anecdotes from people's lives. This sounds weird now that I'm reading it, but if you have a story to share, I'm all ears.

My life, by the way:
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
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
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've been told that I can be opinionated, kind of like Walter.

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

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

Also, Scrabble. Bring it.
The first things people usually notice about me

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
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
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
human behaviour.

people that say blowhard statements like "good for you", "is that right?", "check your privilege", "pat yourself on the back", "how so?", "we can't judge", and "everything happens for a reason".

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.

when you're in line at the grocery store, should you put that plastic barrier on the conveyor belt after you put your food on it or is it up to the next person in line to place it before they put their food on the belt?

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
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
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
- Get thrown out of a casino for winning too much
- Swim with dolphins and not be attacked by them
- Complete a zumba class
- Have my hands registered as weapons
- 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’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I used to watch Sex and the City.

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

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
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."
