If I had to describe myself in a couple of adjectives, I would
probably say strong-willed, conscientious, and active.
My day-to-day is relatively structured by habit, but I always try
to break the patterns when they get too entrenched and lead to
stagnation. I admire spontaneous and creative people and the energy
to everything they do. I value openness and experimentation,
dynamism, culture, and politeness.
I spend an inordinate amount of time day dreaming. I did study
philosophy. But I also have a bit of a romantic streak and find
motivation in wistful, remote, idealized dreams/visions. Longing is
a permanent feature of my being haha.
What I’m doing with my life
I just got back from a semester abroad in Paris, which was
definitely one of my greatest experiences so far. They say "reisen
bildet", and that certainly held true for my time in France over
the past four months. Maybe it was the exhilarating experience of
living alone in a totally new place, maybe it was the French, but
in either case it was exhilarating and unexpectedly a big culture
shock. Am I more stylish? Alas no. Do I lean further left?
Probably. Now I'm back in Toronto finishing my last semester of
school, and the looming graduation is kind of scary . . .
I’m really good at
Tennis--I like to think I'm a good mental warrior--, learning new
languages, things that require sheer persistence
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my height
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Three Musketeers, The Razor's Edge, The Red and the Black, The
Great Gatsby, Death in Venice
The Spanish Apartment, The Bourne Identity, Beyond the Clouds
Arrested Development, The Office, Girls, Parks and Recreation,
Community, The Wire, Mad Men, Enlightened
Classical, especially opera, trance, techno
As for food, I prefer savoury to sweet, though the pastries in
France were pretty great. Some of my favourite cuisines are Thai
My drinks of choice are craft beer (sounds a bit pretentious and
hipsters, I know) and cocktails. I tried a Negroni on a trip to
Italy, which kindled my love of mixed drinks and led me to start
preparing them at home as well. I recently got a recipe book and
shaker and have slowly been expanding my liquor cabinet.
The six things I could never do without
Enough sleep--I can put up with a lot of physcial discomfort but
not sleepiness--, daily exercise, passport, laptop, intellectually
stimulating reading, city life
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Moving to Europe, self-development, the passage of time and aging
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday Night ROM
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't have a driver's licence.
