My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.

Recently moved to Edinburgh to begin a PhD program. Looking to meet some like-hearted people who love life and don't take themselves too seriously.

I am a contradiction and i prefer to deal with situations as they come rather than following a rigid set of ideals. i like walking, and spending time with people who know what they want and are also open to exploration and experience as a guiding principle. i think there's a world of difference between sensuality and sexuality and appreciate both. i thrive on intellectual connection and love silence and simplicity in equal parts. i think poetry might be the highest expression of the human soul. i can't go to bed angry. i like slow mornings that revolve around espresso.

i'm on here as someone who's used to having a wide range of friends with different interests and I'm exited to meet new people and learn new things and of course new experiences.
i have a sense of humour and i'm not afraid to use it. i adore witty-vulgarity and love people who will take it to the next level, and the next after that. i find other than toronto natives, the only other people who seem to get it are people from new york. i think it has something to do with growing up in an overwhelmingly multicultural setting and learning to take nothing as sacred and making fun of everyone equally. americans think canadians are polite, but for the most part they're actually just passive aggressive and are only nice to americans because they feel culturally superior to them.

I find it remarkable how many women on here describe themselves as "easy going" and "laid back." The funny thing is, in everyday life i've *never* met anyone who is always "easy going" and "laid back." I can only assume that you're lying to yourselves, or are putting forward an incomplete representation of yourselves in the belief that a potential partner wants you to be pacified and not carry any strong convictions. This video offers a brilliant perspective on this:
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For the most part, trying to get out of the way and allowing the universe to unfold however it needs to -- luckily, i've learned that this often leads to a full and exciting life full of wonder, good people, and deeply meaningful experiences. At the moment that translates into a lot of grant writing, slow travel, offering my time/energy wherever it's needed, and figuring out next steps.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
improvising - in the broadest sense of the term
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People who's eyes are too close together would likely notice me eyeing them suspiciously.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
BOOKS: Can't say I'm able to devote tons of time to reading for 'pleasure' when my full-time job is reading for my dissertation, but when I do take a break, I've recently enjoyed "The Song of Achilles" by Madeline Miller, and "Die Wise: A Manifesto For Sanity and Soul" by Stephen Jenkinson.

MUSIC: i listen to a lot of music sung in languages i don't understand, however i hate crappy-fusion-world-music and can often feel personally offended if subjected to it. i think people who name-drop obscure musicians are obnoxious.

MOVIES: i haven't owned a tv in 10 years and i watch movies seldom, when i do its usually a documentary or has subtitles. i did a film degree out of highschool and worked in the commercial tv/film industry in toronto in which i had to work on countless productions whose focus was some combination of well-lit-tits & over-excited-guns. i quit because it was unfulfilling, and i value my time too much to watch anything similar even for the sake of irony.

FOOD: i have lots of views on food and i find people's feelings on the subject to be fascinating. when most people meet me they assume i'm vegetarian, but i'm not, however i lived in a vegetarian intentional community without a problem. i'm much more interested in people who are passionate and well informed in their views than people who happen to think the same as i do.

DISLIKES: Richard Dawkins, sport hunting, people who stop in the middle of a busy side-walk to text, everything on the wrong side of the road
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how to live a fulfilling life. Donkeys. Why johnny marr never did anything memorable after the smiths. St francis. Southern spain. Imagined road trips. Preachy atheists. Anselm Kiefer. Why americans don't have passports. That woman in the gas station in Taos with the sparkle-eyes. Ship wreck ballads. Istanbul. How post-modern continental philosophy is really just a bunch of old white men masturbating each other and being quoted in every dissertation from here to the moon. The influence of early medieval Islamic imperialism in Spain and its manifestation within colonial american rituals of possesion in the 16th century.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
i'm suspicious of people whose eyes are too close together
