What I’m doing with my life
I am currently on medical leave from the University for the semester, but am endeavoring to keep busy. So, I am undertaking a little idle thesis work in preparation for my return, partaking in a little personal writing, catching up with my own, substantial, reading list, maintaining my language proficiencies, and so on.
I’m really good at
• Doodling
• The Guitar
• Brewing tea
• Reading quickly
• Reciting erotic poetry
• Navigating through crowds
• Towering over said same crowds
• Sustaining an iron focus when required
• Using Latin in common place conversation
• The research and writing of academic papers
• Maintaining precariously balanced stacks of books
• Making obscure, obtuse, and obfuscating references
• Not getting ink on my fingers while filling fountain pens
• Appearing ever more elegantly dishevelled as the day wears on
The first things people usually notice about me
Beyond being quite tall, I have repeatedly been informed that I possess a "sad face", despite the relative frequency of this remark I will never be entirely sure as to how I am to take this.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I also read an tremendous volume of academic literature, largely relating to antiquity, and ecstatically enjoy it. That having been said, I would prefer not to bore you with book titles such as The Alexander Romance in Persia and the East, or Kallimachos: The Alexandrian Library and the Origins of Bibliography, as I just began to there.

T.V.:
I am not one who is prone to watching much, or any, television. This being said, there are a few cult programs, now long off the air, to which I have maintained some form of affection towards.

Music:
This list was getting out of hand, so I am eliminating the list.

I am quite fond of the Western art music tradition; Opera, sacred music, things such as that. Ask me about my favourite composers and works.

Food:
Indian, Arab, Persian, Pub Fare, Cheeses of all sorts, Tea, Toast, Beers amber or darker.
The six things I could never do without
1. A record collection bordering on the obscenely decadent.
2. Knit cardigans.
3. A well stocked personal library.
4. Irish breakfast tea.
5. Sweetly melancholy moments.
6. A sense of urgency.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The whereabouts of my keys.
On a typical Friday night I am
Ideally, I'm asleep.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have struggled with depression for over a decade now. I prefer to be upfront about that, as it does tend to come up eventually.

  • Near me

You should message me if
You are as self-aware in your pretentiousness as I am. You know who Callimachus was. Or, you want to journey over to the ROM with me and receive an impromptu guided tour and lecture through the Greco-Roman galleries.

As a rule I attempt to reply to anyone gracious enough to write me. This said, I do appear to receive a greater volume of messages in comparison to most straight men on this site, and I am more often than not quite busy. If I neglect to get back to you immediately, I genuinely apologize.
