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 :)

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 (who knows though...still trying to figure things out).

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)

I suppose what I'm looking for is someone who shares the "familiar ache of age and sadness and wisdom" along with a twinkle in their eye for unencumbered adventure and excitement for those moments in life that find you full of inhibitions and apathy and restlessness, leaving you wistful and romanced and without a care in the world, knowing beyond all doubt that everything will be fine and that there's no sense in worrying, that this moment would suffice to feed ones soul, and there's no need to be greedily pained over when the next will come, and that spring is just around the corner, and summer is but a few more sleeps away.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well, as I take life pretty darn seriously - as up to this point my North American lifestyle has brought a lot of harm to people and planet - I'm trying to access my skills and figure out how best to go about creating a life that has meaning to it.

Here's a blog I just started up recently where I've posted some of the stuff I've been doing: http://pdgnpress.blogspot.ca

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being awkward?

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.
When the hell I'm going to find the others who can see the Matrix...

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...
