My self-summary
I would describe my character as laid-back, open-minded, calm, quiet, reserved, introspective, curious, independent, adventurous, nerdy.

The Myers & Briggs personality: ISFP

Random knowledge: "The sixth sick sheik's sixth sheep's sick" is listed by the Guinness Book of Records as the hardest tongue twister in the world.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently working a 9-5 job in Toronto. You break your computer, I'm the IT nerd to see! It's not my passion but it pays the bills. One day I'll break free of this drudgery and pursue something that makes me want to jump out of bed every morning full of zest!

Interests I've been dabbling in include but are not limited to:

Salsa Dancing - Started this in 2008 after a trip to Cuba. It took me a year just to get decent at it. I'm going to try West Coast Swing next.

Photography - People tell me they like my photos but I think they're just being kind. I really should try doing something with them.

Snowboarding - I took this up last year (2012). God damn the first day of learning was painful. I now have something to look forward to in the winter!

Table Tennis I was going to Spin Toronto for a little while to play Table Tennis. Now I have my own table! I'm pretty good at it.

Dj'ing (making mixes) I bought a Numark Mixtrack pro Dj controller a few years ago. When the mood strikes I'll sometimes spend several hours making mixes. I've been lazy lately but a new mix is in the works. You can listen to my mixes here. http://www.mixcloud.com/DAnimawL/

I think I'm going to give Yoga a try. I've been leaning towards Kundalini Yoga. Comments anyone?

I do a lot of reading on the Internet while at work. I have a lot of time on my hands. ;) As such I'm usually current on the latest news/politics, Reddit posts and the weather. Other times I'll research and read about topics that I may have heard on the radio, or podcast or read on another site. I'm an information junkie!
I’m really good at
Procrastinating.
Computers and technology.
Sensing emotional disturbances in others. I'm very sensitive to other people's emotional states.
Knowing random facts. Like I said... I'm an information Junkie.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure how to answer this. I've been told I look younger than my actual age.

There's so much more I've enjoyed.

Music:
I appreciate most genres of music but I lean to Electronica (house, techno, Deep House, Ambient, Chillout) a lot.
My main car stereo presets are 102.1fm, 103.5fm, and 93.5fm.
Right now I'm loving the Virgin Magnetic Material remixes.

Food:
I don't really have a favourite food. I mostly follow the Paleo / Ketogenic diet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The answer to life, the universe and everything.
People and psychology. What makes us tick. Why we do the things we do.
My next trip.
Random stuff
League of Legends

If I should totally re-write this profile. I find it difficult to describe the very nature of my being.
On a typical Friday night I am
Pretty random with this. Could be a pub, chilling at home, at the theater, taking photos of the city...
To be honest I really like staying at home watching movies, tv shows and anime.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't help myself when it comes to people watching. It's fascinating watching people interact. It's like watching a national geographic documentary.

Oh and I've always been interested in spirituality and the paranormal. I've gone ghost hunting several times and took a course on Astral Projection.
You should message me if
you walk the off-beaten path. You're a little weird/awkward or different from most people.
