My self-summary
Heya all.

I'm a law student at the University of Western Ontario, pursuing my dream of becoming a lawyer. I also work as an artillery soldier in the Canadian Army Reserve. I love my country and am proud to serve it.

In my free time, I generally prefer quieter activities, particularly reading. I go through about a book per week, a mix of fiction and non fiction, touching many genres. I have a very active and inquisitive mind, so I also spend a great deal of time trying to learn various things for my own personal enjoyment.

Beyond that, I have many interests that I struggle to find time to devote to. I have been practicing yoga for about three years. I love following baseball, and in particular love the history of the sport. I enjoy gaming and board gaming, in occasional, but intense bouts. I've also never given up my love of superheroes, so I try to read the most important comics published by Marvel and DC.

Ultimately, though I believe family is the most important thing in life. My family is very close, and I could not have achieved the success I've had without their support and love.
What I’m doing with my life
I am attending law school at the University of Western Ontario. My goal, like most law students, is to become a lawyer.

My BA is in Classical Studies, and I absolutely love history. I visited many archaeological sties in Greece as part of my undergrad program, and would like to visit other countries rich in history and archaeology.
I’m really good at
I am a dedicated student, I worked hard though my undergrad to get accepted to law school, and look forward to a new challenge, and an exciting career in law.

I also have a wide general knowledge, and a good knowledge of Greek and Roman history, as my BA is in Classics.

The six things I could never do without
In no particular order:

My Surface Pro 3: Great tablet/laptop that I do most of my schoolwork on

Tea: Life without tea would not be worth living

Family: I would not be where I am without their love and support

iPhone: Without the GPS in this, I would probably end up lost in a swamp somewhere

Kindle: I do most of my personal reading on this. It's a lot easier to take places than a stack of books.

Canada: I owe so much to the rights and freedoms guaranteed by Canada
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a great deal of time thinking about my courses. Beyond school, I actively follow world affairs, and think about the issues facing our world, and how they fit into an historical context.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually working on school work. When I'm not, it's typically because I'm working with the army.

When I do have some free time, I'll often read for pleasure, or watch a film, or play a game.
You should message me if
You are an ambitious, intelligent woman, living in London, Ontario, who would prefer a night of reading and intelligent conversation to drinking and clubbing, and looking for a partner with similar values.
