I'm an eternal student who will probably spend the rest of his life in academia. My incessant need to write and read is a pretty good reflection of my personality. I'll admit it right now, I am an intellectual: I read academic paper for ... fun (le gasp). In turn this means I love to talk and discuss and argue. And when I say I like to talk, it's not just about politics (in its broader sense) or philosophy; I like to talk about pretty much anything including boys, love, cats, food, etc. Nevertheless, a propensity towards "intellectual" discussion (whether or not you're versed in it is unimportant, interest makes all the difference!) is a plus. I'm also very patient and love teaching so I'm always happy to explain myself when I'm not clear or regurgitating legal/academic jargon on you. Beside law/politics/philosophy (which are part of my work) I'm also a history nerd. You could summarize this paragraph by my profession is being curious.
This nerdy academic side of me may make me look like a serious person, but I'm far from being a serious person. Ridiculous and silly, and dare I say funny, are words often use to describe me. Laughing is very important to me. There is time to take things seriously, but life is short so the rest of the time is for smiling and laughing. Therefore, my friends and family are very important to me. I'm a social being (although I do like solitude too) and love to interact with other people for play and work (although time makes it sometimes difficult, as I'm a busy bee). This is why I stayed on here after I met my partner. As I've moved a lot over the past years, I find it's a good way to meet people (whether it stays online or developed into in person friendship). My head is often in the clouds as I have quite the imagination. It's reflected in my geeky love of everything science fictionny and fantasy (tv, movies, video games). I guess my work brings me often to the depressing side of real life so it gives me a chance to escape!
To end this summary, I would say I'm an open minded, queer, environmentalist, radical left-wing, academic wannabee, easy-going, friendly, generous, passionate, talkative québécois!
