My self-summary
Rather than attempt any kind of cohesive story here, I'm just going to list some facts: I write bad prose-poetry vignette description things. I study logic and formal philosophy. I cannot dance. My first word was "cat." A friend bestowed on me the title "the Adversary." I get very grumpy with misogyny, ignorance, and infelicitous verbiage. My favourite word is "Qinghaosu." I am allergic to watermelons. That is all.
What I’m doing with my life
Studying. Procrastinating on my applications. Eating. Lots of eating.
I’m really good at
Formal philosophy, words, filling out OkCupid profiles.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
everything David Foster Wallace wrote
the Brothers Karamazov
Flatland
The Logical Construction of the World

Music:
Classical. Beethoven, Mahler, Stravinsky, Brückner, etc.

Food:
Indian especially, but basically everything so long as it is good.
The six things I could never do without
Air, the internet, the Zermelo-Fraenkel axiomatization of set theory, the laws of physics, words, a persistent sense of self.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Epistemic rationality, words, German - European relations, whether or not the impression of myself created by my words matches the reality, this evening's dinner.
On a typical Friday night I am
Studying. Sigh.
You should message me if
Say, for example, you have a really pressing problem that requires the attention of a logician. Alternatively, maybe you want to eat some good food in the Victoria area while discussing the shift in Ursula LeGuin's politics between the Left Hand of Darkness and the Dispossessed. Or whatever, really.
