I also love to cook. Anything and everything. Nothing feels better than being able to give someone a plate/bowl/mug of their favourite comfort food just like mom made. Also we are literally made of what we eat, and life is too short to put crap food in or things that just aren't good. The best part about cooking is that I can cook something new, three meals a day and die without exploring a quarter of what the world has to offer.
Finally, playing music keeps me sane. I don't think I'll ever stop picking up new instruments either.
The story of my life. Hell, if you're from around Ottawa (especially campus) you've probably already spotted me. In a kilt or on a longboard or something.
