My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey, I'm Alex. Nice to meet you!

I'm a grad student living a busy life and looking to meet new people to make it more enjoyable than it already is :)

In a nutshell, I'm a big nerd with a bit of a silly streak and a little dash of Hopeless Romantic. I enjoy witty banter with the occasional pun or tastefully-tasteless joke thrown in, and believe there are few greater bonding experiences in life than a couple of people laughing their faces off together.

On the flip side, I also enjoy having deep and meaningful conversations sometimes. So, depending on the company and situation, I've found that I can be anything from intellectual to very silly (and sometimes both at once... those are special fun talks indeed!).

I'm not really looking for something very specific from this site, basically just to meet people and see where it goes. I'm totally okay with something serious and long-term if the right person comes along, but I'm not exclusively looking for that either.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Mostly working on my engineering PhD, and looking for fun distractions wherever I can find them. I play viola in an orchestra at school, and have been going to the Swing dance club for about 3 years. I go to pilates once a week and find other ways to stay active the rest of the time. Less regularly, I'll try something completely new or start (and never finish) a side project. I've tried to make everything from crocheting a sock to making my own video game. Honestly though, when the work piles up, I need to spend 50 hours a week in the lab :/

I'm a creative type - INTP if you're into the whole Myers-Briggs thing. I've decided that after I graduate and leave the intensity of a decade plus of university, I want to try my hand at the 'starving artist' schtick and find some people to develop indie video games with. Who knows, it might turn into a non-starving artist gig if it goes well :) Gainful employment is always a fallback option, and there's no shortage of work in my field.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Staying in school, apparently. I'm also pretty okay at playing the piano and doing other things musical or rhythmic. There's also design, programming, figuring out technology, and the other occupational hazards that come with my line of study.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Height. Eyes. Hint of a Russian accent, especially when I start talking fast. Some say I look intense and/or serious, but that's just my default resting face. Honest.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I've read a lot of sci-fi to pass the time when I commuted to school for 8 years. If you're into anything written by Robert J. Sawyer or John Scalzi, I'm sure we'd have lots to mutually geek out over.

TV and Movies: Yes.

Food: I don't like seafood. While I eat meat, I'm not in love with it or anything. If I had the means, I could happily eat at Vegetarian Haven on Baldwin every day. I'd really miss bacon, though.

Board games: I've been going out with friends to these new places popping up over Toronto that let you play board games while consuming caffeinated/alcoholic beverages. It's a great time, and people keep showing me cool new games.

Computer/console games: I play when I have time, preferably with friends.

Music: I don't actively go out of my way to listen to music, which is weird because of my musical background. Having said that, I dig almost everything by Daft Punk and Infected Mushroom. (late) Beethoven and Chopin are my classical bros.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Honestly I think I can be a little too analytical sometimes and over-think things a lot. I try to be self-aware and think about the person that I am, who I want to become, and the ever-changing boundary that is my comfort zone in life. I also idly make up stories/timelines for the squirrels and pigeons I pass on my walks to and from school. Do you think the regular black pigeons ostracize the cream/white-coloured ones?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I love the McDonalds Dollar Menu
