My self-summary
I love listening to people talk about the things they find interesting.

I try very hard to be non-judgmental, honest, and kind.

I've been lucky enough to have lived in a few very different places, but after leaving people that mattered to me a lot behind for the fourth time in four years, I've decided I really don't want to move anytime soon.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to figure out what the best way to use my talents to help people is...I'm kind of disenchanted with my Master's of Social Work program and am halfway through the process of dropping it and getting back to doing the work.
I’m really good at
Teaching
Being Supportive
Over-analyzing things
Procrastinating
Being a huge nerd
The first things people usually notice about me
I talk a lot. And I have a strange laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
--Books--
The Word for World is Forest (and other classic scifi with a social science sensibility), The Velveteen Rabbit (and other works of philosophy masquerading as Children's Literature), the occasional Great Book (East of Eden leaps to mind), and lots of comics (Mostly Vertigo, Oni press--things like that)
--Movies--
Fargo, 5 Centimeters per Second, All the Ghibli movies, Pacific Rim, Groundhog Day, Tokyo Godfathers, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
--Shows--
Gilmore Girls, Game of Thrones, Everwood, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Orange is the New Black
--Music--
Great Big Sea, Les Cowboys Fringants, and pretty much anything folky...I tend to let the people around me pick the music.
--Video Games--
Dark Souls, Life is Strange, The Walking Dead, Skyrim, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Civilization 5
--Food--
All the food. Except for meat.
The six things I could never do without
Other People. That is all.

Although I'm pretty dependent on the internet and running water and stuff.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
ALL OF THE THINGS!

Seriously, though, I spend a lot of time in my head. Favourite thinking topics include culture, language, power and violence, rocks, how to imagine other people complexly, grammar, cooking, ice hockey and old friends
On a typical Friday night I am
Either watching guilty pleasure shows on netflix or playing video games, depending on what kind of a week it's been. Saturday night is my going out to have a beer with friends night, Sunday nights I generally have dinner with family. I'm a creature of ritual.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Something no-one ever believes about me, but I'm a pretty anxious person. It's never stopped me from being outgoing and friendly, but I have a lot of sympathy for people who are shy.
