Hi! I've just begun a graduate program at Notre Dame and was
wondering what this brave new, online world might have to offer. I
am energetic, and enjoy reading and staying active. Reading
consumes the vast majority of my waking life--mostly school stuff,
but lately the New Yorker (which I'm excited to, finally, have my
own subscription to), The New Republic, London Book Review, Times
etc. Aside from reading, I've lately been playing a lot of squash,
probing the inner sanctum of Rolfs gym, trundling to and from
campus on my bike, generally trying to eat more ethically (i.e.
food coop and more hours spent cooking). I have a background in
theater, and love trying new things.
What I’m doing with my life
I aspire to become a university professor, or teach in some
capacity. In the meantime I am relishing the wonderful opportunity
afforded by my program to accumulate knowledge and self-actualize.
I’m really good at
rote memory, hockey (atleast compared to Americans lol), reading,
punctuality (losing steam here).
The first things people usually notice about me
People normally describe being arrested, nay prostrated by an
overwhelming sense of, in the words of a recent (unrelated)
acquaintance "breathtakinghandsomenss," Once your senses and bodily
functions gradually return to you, will begin to discern my
lapidary musclature, the saddlebag, rugged quality of my skin, my
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
One of each say, Hamlet (a play but still), mmm Good Will Hunting?
I have an Ipod full of Great Big Sea at present (Newfoundland
folk/rock band). Pizza, of course; however, Oatmeal and whole wheat
pasta, the twin pillars as I call them, are much more
representative of my austere student diet.
The six things I could never do without
I'm beginning to suspect that the site compels me to write
something here as a condition for advancing, thus, in no
particuliar order--the objects that currently surround me: kleenex
box, pen, ipad, cell phone, mouse, post colonial notes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
family, school, being more productive, my relationship with my
teenaged son (played by fred savage).
On a typical Friday night I am
reading or exercising most likely
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am willing to give okay cupid the old college try!
You should message me if
you're an easygoing person who likes to do active things and/or
read and is not interested in a protracted online exchange.
