I'm passionate about things close to my heart, I can be a bit clinical when it comes to how to approach a problem, and I love a good plan.
I'm pretty relaxed these days and up for most anything reasonable when it comes to a day out.
I have a cat named Bismarck...I have tattoos and a beard. I still enjoy reading pulpy science fiction when I can. I've moved nine times in five years, back and forth to Asia and back to Canada for work and fun. I'm working a 9-5 job that I really like. So I'll be calling Ottawa home for awhile yet.
I also think I'm a pretty decent conversationalist, if that's a thing. I like to talk but I also like to hear what people have to say, also yak on once in awhile. It's a really important part of a relationship for me, having good and honest communication.
I would say teaching...but since I'm not teaching anymore, maybe not a thing. I'm not interested in having kids myself, but teaching them was an incredible experience.
I love watching movies but I admit to being a bit behind the times with theater stuff, since Netflix has come around. Something funny or something serious, just depends on my mood. Dry documentaries about battleships are a guilty pleasure of mine.
I don't really watch a lot of TV these days, I tend to download more or stream. More comedies though, Archer, China, IL, Sons of Anarchy, Rome, Deadwood, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad. Venture Brothers, Ugly Americans, Rick and Morty, Babylon 5, Blackadder, Futurama. Just as an example, even if that's a big list of examples.
I like a mix of music, I've been listening to more metal recently, but I still like a lot of alternative and rock. I don't really mind what's being played, I enjoy bluegrass and viking metal equally. The last two years I volunteered at Folkfest in Ottawa, it was a blast, but this year I think I'm going to just go and enjoy the music.
I always try to have a book on the go, mostly something to read at work. I tend to gravitate towards historical non-fiction, or pulpy historical or sci-fi.
I game a bit when I can, some tabletop stuff here and there too. Something to relax with at the end of the day, but I find I don't really have time for it until the weekend.
