I've been told that I'm a pretty good observer of anything and
everything. As a result, I can generally have a conversation about
anything, whether it's politics or how Angelea totally got robbed
of her title in the 18th cycle of America's Next Top Model. I'll
never look the same in two photos (this is very annoying).
What I’m doing with my life
I've been in Ottawa for around two years and have settled into what
I guess would be adult life (?). I'm just getting comfortable with
my twenties and learning about all the odd yuppie things that come
with having a fledgling career.
In the future, I'm looking forward to traveling and putting down
roots in the city. Anywhere outside of North America or Europe is
on my travel list (the world is pretty fascinating, after all).
I’m really good at
playing devil's advocate. I like to see two sides to a story and
like a good discussion/argument. It's both a good and bad thing.

The six things I could never do without
1. Music. I'm rarely seen without headphones. My taste is
eclectic/bad most of the time!
2. A Challenge. I'm at my worst when I have nothing to do. Having a
goal to work towards is important both for my sanity and for
3. Snow. I'm slowly realising that despite the accompanying cold,
it isn't winter until everything's covered in a picturesque dusting
4. Canada. I've been to all corners of this country and can't
imagine a more beautiful one.
5. Tea. Being half British and half Indian, this one's
6. Books. Whenever I have the time, books are my go-to.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
politics, music, daydreams, the future, the past, hypothetical
On a typical Friday night I am
out with friends, staying in with friends, occasionally taking a
night off with a good movie/book :)
You should message me if
You think we'd get along? Really, I appreciate any and all
messages. I'm friendly :)
