My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First off, I'm really into investigative journalism and the podcast format, so if you know of any investigative journalism podcasts (like This American Life, Serial, Invisibilia, etc.) LET ME KNOW, please :)

Looking for girl next door type.

I spend a lot of time exploring via walking/biking, and as I study geography I'm also very interested in other places. I like to imagine the lives and historical circumstances that these places hold within their bounded spaces. As much as I dislike the politics and much of the culture, I have grown quite a taste for exploring the cities and natural landscapes of America that to me drip with character, and I really look forward to one day (soon) traveling around in a winnebago for a while soaking it all up, while writing to keep an income going, as well as photographing all the beautiful landscapes (another passion of mine I'd love to spend much more time developing). Then there's Europe... And South America... So many places to visit... It would be awesome if you related to this kinda stuff too.

I'm pretty consumed at the moment with studying and thinking about my very near future of (hopefully) becoming a journalist/ non-fiction writer of sorts. But I am aware that I should probably try to breathe some life into my social life, which has taken a backseat for the past few years. But as I dont tend to get much of a kick from hanging out with people I dont share similar interests and/or moral/ethical/societal convictions with, I'm really hoping this site can help me get to some great conversations and fun outings with some similar types of people.

I love nature (I miss living in Vancouver very very much, and hope to be moving back to the Northwest as soon as possible) but also like spending lots of time in the city.

I am interested in researching and writing about major societal issues (mainly having to do with capitalism, innovation, technology and inequality)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
University - Human Geography specialist program at U of T, reading & stuff, I've completed the requirements for my BA, but I'm still taking courses so that I can work on my first collection of articles for publication (fingers crossed).

Ive just created a little blog to house a few of my better essays. They could all use another edit, no doubt about that, but if you can get past that you may find them to be an interesting read (not because of my writing, but because of the fascinating, at least to me, content). Topics include: History of how Haiti is the way it is now (aka fucked); History of Slums (Rio & India); History of Segregated Housing USA; History of US public housing; Foxconn; Gentrification & Parkdale History. www.pdgnpress.blogspot.com

My latest paper isn't up there yet, as I'm just in the midst of working it into a series of articles that I'll hopefully be able to publish soon.

I really enjoy what I study (in school but largely on my own) and this pertains to human capital, innovation/technology advancement and some economic theories. And not in the corpo capitalist way, in the 'lets empower everyone so that they can reach their full potential to have their dreams brought to fruition' kinda way. I am really taken with the works and ideas of Jane Jacobs, Bill McKibben, Steve Jobs and Ken Robinson. blah blah. Just finishing up school and working on a few research papers that I'm hoping to turn into my first foray into paid work as a writer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
the art of deduction, snowboarding, photography & graphic communications (but that's really a matter of individual taste), playing with children (niece & nephew), making a fool of myself? (Im not necessarily really good at these things, but enjoy doing them.....)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
my big brown eyes! (mrowwwww!!!!) and if they get too close, that I stink of garlic (quite often at least - I could eat parsley or take pills, but that's no fun)!!!!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Thai food rules me along with Vietnemese. Japanese whenever the finances will permit the indulgence. Palestinian, Indian, and all the others I've yet to try.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
the ability to appreciate, the ability to extract lessons from experiences, nature, the written word, KITTENS, public broadcasting (This American Life, CBC, TVO), people to share it all with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
First and foremost, my studies (although more often what ISN'T being covered by my classes). Then when I'm not thinking about that - which Toronto neighborhoods I'd should explore next, kittens on youtube, sustainable communities, design, snowboarding in powder, traveling to europe/s.america/southeast asia/japan, how unbelievably beautiful nature is, how awesome the CBC is! how refreshing and interesting it is to speak with people from different countries/cultures, how cool RSA animates on youtube are, permaculture, all the properties of bamboo, how to counteract the Western way of life (i.e. destroying the world), how AMAZING the Bruce Peninsula is, www.marcadamus.com,
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
depends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I was homeschooled by my hippy mom, raised on a vege macro-biotic diet, without cable t.v., till I was 11. Oh, and I'm a dirt-broke student with some social anxiety disorder going on.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are a kind person who's more leftwing than right (I'm fine with center ppl, but if ur rightwing it's not going to work, sorry).

You strive to be a good person (recycling, social justice advocate, help old ladies across the street, etc.)

You must love kittens (let's face it, if you don't love kittens we both know you're a monster. I'm not gonna judge, just crawl back into your cave and we'll just forget this ever happened...)

You strive to be a good person (you recycle, read articles about social justice when you see them, don't judge foreigners based on the garbage media that surrounds you, help little old ladies across the street, etc. etc.)

You'd like to see and know more of the world.

Huge bonus if you like riding bicycles.

Annnnnd, as I'm a touch shy at first, and don't want to bother you ladies before being given the go ahead, send me a message and I will take it from there.
