My self-summary
I'm curious and analytical, but with a sentimental streak. I've been told that I'm funny when I'm trying to be, but even funnier when I'm not. I'm a mushy bag of feelings that thinks anything that can be analyzed should be. I experience a sense of existential calm when I know I have enough leftovers in the fridge that I don't need to make lunches this week.

My favourite non-Earth solar system planet is Jupiter, as it's like its own tiny solar system nested in a bigger one. I love all colours equally, but cyan is on thin ice right now. My favourite Monopoly piece is the hat, but Monopoly is terrible anyways.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in the third year of my Master's in Biochemistry at Queen's University. THE END IS NIGH.

When I'm out of the apartment and being sociable I enjoy swing dancing, improv comedy, and playing pen-and-paper RPGs. In my private time I read, cook, and listen to a lot of podcasts.
I’m really good at
Remembering details, getting excited, word games, explaining stuff, making quiches.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have a lot to say. About everything.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My musical tastes are pretty eclectic, but my go-to genres are usually folk, metal, alternative hip-hop, classic soul, indie rock, and contemporary big band jazz. I've been trying to dip a toe into punk lately with mixed results. This is my current favourite song:

I try to read a mix of fiction and nonfiction, but I naturally gravitate towards science fiction and graphic novels. My nerdiness is pervasive and inescapable.

Some of my favourite movies include:
Porco Rosso
Django Unchained
The Blues Brothers
Groundhog Day
Black Dynamite
Mad Max: Fury Road

I watch a lot of cartoons - I generally prefer stuff in the vein of Archer, Adventure Time and Rick and Morty. Favourite live-action series include Community, Parks and Recreation, and Mad Men.

I'll eat anything and I love to cook - planning and preparing meals is how I clear my head after a long day. Savory and spicy are my preferred coordinates on the flavor spectrum.
The six things I could never do without
1. Something to read
2. A sweater to keep my arms from freezing and falling off
3. My battle-hardened cast iron skillet
4. Game sales on Steam (to teach me the financial costs of hubris)
5. A fine-tipped sharpie with which to label tubes
6. Weekly dance outings
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I'm always cooking up lame story ideas that I'll probably never ever follow up on. I daydream a lot - mostly about robots and kung-fu. Occasionally robots doing kung-fu to each other. Sometimes when I'm bored I walk myself through my internal model of something broad like say, gene expression, and look for gaps in my understanding that I can try to fix later.
On a typical Friday night I am
Playing board games with friends, congealing in a pub somewhere, attending one of the myriad campus clubs I've affiliated myself with, or out on the prowl for some 1 a.m. udon noodles.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was little, I liked assigning personalities to things that typically do not have personalities, including abstract concepts like numbers. Five is a troubled loner, Six is well-meaning but clueless, Seven is a bumbling eccentric, Eight is a greedy miser, Nine is a cocky asshole and Ten was the austere patriarch. I decided the lower numbers were "younger" and therefore hadn't developed into clearly defined personae yet. In addition, I've always found something weirdly comforting and even spiritual about the number 72.
