Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like cats.
I like cars.
And yes, I twitch a bit. No big deal.
I'd like to think I'm logical, brutally honest, and have a good
sense of humour. Probably mostly true. Maybe.
I have a pilots license (sadly out of currency - engineering is a
I'm double plus ungood at sleeping. Seriously, I'm always
postponing my next bout of unconsciousness because something more
interesting came up. As a result, I'm pretty talented at
functioning with less than 3 hours sleep last night, or five nights
in a row.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a Vancouver Island boy transplanted onto the Prairies. Looking
to meet new people in this new city I find myself in.
Newly minted Mechanical Engineer; working and building a life here
in Calgary as of January 2015.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Turns out I'm kinda good at TSD Rally navigating. Good as in won
the 2014 Novice Class Championship of the WCRA and placed first in
Novice class of every rally I entered last year, with a good chance
of winning Calculator Class for 2015 as well.
So yea, I'm proud of that; ain't every day that you get to be a
champion of something :-p
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Open facial expressions. Maybe a twitch if I'm sleep deprived. I'm
often sleep deprived.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Do people actually bother reading these massive lists? Do they
really tell you bugger all about someone? I recommend you just skip
the whole lot of these blue-tagged eye-glazers; we are not so
defined by the media we consume.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
If I lose these, put me out of my misery with an anvil or piano
from sufficient height. Other things, I can do without, albeit less
A sturdy multitool.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I marvel at the sheer scale of modern cities; thousands of
strangers living completely separate lives bouncing into each other
without so much as a second glance. Sardines in cans of concrete
Massive machines of metal and oil that move us at speeds many
magnitudes more than our malleable mortal forms were ever meant to
go. Every day we commute distances that our ancestors wouldn't
travel in their entire lifetimes. Yet we expect these
incomprehensibly complicated contraptions that convey us to
continue perfectly every time, on time. And they usually do. We buy
and sell them for prices that could provide food to an entire
Bangladeshi village for a month.
Continent spanning networks of transmission lines, underwater
cables stretching across entire oceans, radio waves and microwaves
emitted and received in every pocket; billions upon
billions of dollars and entire adult lives devoted to
maintaining our ability to send a message across the globe in a
split second when those same words would have taken months in our
grandparents time. All so that under appreciative pricks like
ourselves can send meaningless shit like "sup babe wanna hook up"
to girls we've never even seen with our own eyes.
We all experience our own unique slice of this world; but that
isn't good enough for me. I want to know more, to
understand further, to delve into someone apart
from myself. The truest cure for arrogance is to face the infinite
breadth of that which you do not understand; that which you have
yet to achieve. Through that complexity, I cling to humility.
I also think about cute cats, pretty girls, fast cars and sex.
They're nice too.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Covered in grime and motor oil under an old car, schmoozing with
friends, exploring the nooks and crannies of a city, maybe seeing

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't have a spleen, just a badass scar around where it used to

If by some blue moon you also like characterful old cats (or cars)
and want to talk about em.
If you can drive stick, because that is awesome and sexy.
If you can't drive stick, because I'd like to teach you.
