My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I had an inspired sleep in a secondhand fleece turtleneck gifted in the art of warming, so I've come back here to edit my profile.

For your quick info - I'm from Canada. Going to be in Wales in Sept 2015 for school. I'm not necessarily looking for dating. Just people I get along with.

First of all disregard my photos. Have you seen them already? I really don't think they represent me. The most accurate image of me is hunched over reading on the bus with a runny nose.

In Walden, Thoreau makes a valid point about the homes of people. He says any decorative effect that a home shows on the outside is only picturesque and dear (as a homely cottage in the woods) if it is natural extension of the inhabitants' livelihoods and pursuits. I think this is a good way to look at the outward appearance of people too. This isn't to say I'll judge you for having a highly stylized look--as long as your life outside of self-beautification reflects the same level of detail, depth, and commitment, I'm all for it. The only reason I "dress up" is to go running on a cold day.

That being said, I am training to become a Personal Trainer and will probably be working in one of the most most superficial industries in existence, but I believe I can bring some valuable difference to the gym. My interest in helping others get fit was an offshoot of my own interest in the healing powers of running. By running alone, I've managed to more or less achieve the feeling of self-efficacy, not just in fitness but in life. As of this moment, it's the closest I've come to total surrender, but I understand I'm not supposed to be striving for it...

I paint, and I struggle with it. I'm beginning to feel like my ideas are a bit "muddied" by too much rumination and not enough action. If you're a painter too, talk to me!

My long-term, "real" goal is to find a foothold in academia with artistic pursuits on the side.

I love literature. I love film. I love music. I love anthropology. I love philosophy--just got myself a Heidegger on Poetry and a Ziziek on Philosophy in transit for my train rides this winter, (how fitting).

Feel free to ask me anything. Show me your favourite thinkers, musicians, artists and let us delve into their Mysteries...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now? Browsing Etsy for art ideas ^^

Today? Shopping for a good cute mini alarm clock, studying for my BCRPA, probably replaying simian.interface (a bite-sized and wonderfully complex yet accessible little game--try it).

This week? Going to Paris and Lyon!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Does it matter? A Buddhist teaching says a perfect human is one who makes the best of the worst situation, so I'll strive toward that.

But to humour this question, I guess...
critical thinking
absurd humour
creativity
the ability to become hopelessy absorbed in minutiae

I spend a lot of time thinking about

I think about what I read, watch, listen to, admire...a LOT.

For a while I couldn't stop thinking of getting my hands on this book:
http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/676920.The_Consumer

then it was this one:

http://www.amazon.ca/The-Diaries-Paul-Klee-1898-1918/dp/0520006534

Then it was Joshua Oppenheimer's (the director of The Act of Killing) other's films - which I couldn't find online anywhere!

I think about social justice: multiculturalism, diversity of beauty and how our society represses that, ingenuity and invention, how little freedom Canadians actually have, how I should think, how much I should tolerate...the stuff of TEDtalks, basically, though I can only stand to watch a few of those. This one (tied with Hans Rosling on stats) is my fav:
