My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm the kind of person who takes life seriously. I have my fun, but rather than immediate, easy to obtain entertainment, I'm after adventure and deeper subject matter to get my kicks and feel I am growing as a person and on some sort of path.

I consider myself more left than right, and while I'm totally against TNC's, I don't see why publicly owned companies can't be efficient and innovative. I don't go in for all-encompassing terms like "capitalism" or "communism", as I believe that each has aspects of benefit that can be teased out from within the mangled mess that too many have made out of them to further their own causes.

I see the McDonald's/Tim Hortons workers and I want to cry (I've studied the new "precariate"), I see the beggars and I know of their plight (I've studied homelessness/the history of public housing), I see everyone and I know they are mostly doing the best they can, I see everyone doing this and I can't take it, it's not pure, all our actions are intertwined with systems that are entrenched with corruption and/or consequences that will either harm others or the planet. I've also studied industrialization and the formation of cities, and further the history of technological development (I'm not trying to say that makes me special, or that I'm not just as guilty as everyone else, I'm just saying that I'm not ignorant of why/how we've gotten to where we're at).

I have a conscience that won't allow me to go along with it, no matter the rewards. I can't help but think/see to the ends of all these many actions that form our North American/western lives, and constantly come to the conclusion that all actions are touched by some form of non-purity. I want a family, to raise kids and live within a community that I can be part of. I can't live in a life where the ends (might) justify the means. My goddamn liberal arts education has made it impossible to do anything without seeing the that everything I do is connected to the harm of others or the planet.

Because of all this (and maybe something else I'm not aware of) I've been alone (besides family) and struggling to find my way. Maybe meeting the right person/person will change my outlook/fortitude, but at this point in my life (one term away from finishing my undergraduate degree) I am in critical debt load and the only hope I see is teaching English overseas (most likely in Korea) for 3-5 years (3 to nail down debt, 2 for savings to do something with) so I ask that anyone who wishes to respond to me please only do so if you are also able/willing to do similar.

I'm looking for someone who doesn't have it all worked out yet, but who's started the journey. Someone who wants to tackle big/important things in their time, and who has a big 'ol conscience and plans to make amends for their part in North America's rape of those too vulnerable to defend themselves. I'm looking for someone who doesn't want some big 'ol domestic life (except kids, kids are cool :), but instead wants adventure, to see new places and live amongst different cultures. Someone to bounce wild ideas off of, and to hear them from. Someone who loves to learn and is hungry for knowledge and formulating new thoughts. And also someone to help think up fun/interesting things to do until the money/travel opportunities start rolling in.
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'm currently 4rd year undergrad.

I am consumed with 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 blah.
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

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.
