My self-summary
I'm a law student, born and raised in Toronto, with a love of thinking, politics, and discussion, and a dry sense of humour. I'm affectionate, interested, occasionally amusing, and very occasionally actually witty. Intelligence is a hard thing to judge, but I like learning, have opinions (some of them strong), and try to apply what I do know.

In my free time, I game (and enjoy using it as a verb), doodle (though I think I hit my peak talent somewhere around nine years old), read, and conduct debates against myself (I always win).

I also use too many brackets.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in my third year of law school at Osgoode Hall. It's a fascinating experience, if also slightly (utterly) terrifying when you think about it. I've mostly realized that I don't actually want to practice law, and definitely not in a huge corporate environment, though, so you don't have to worry about annoying, silly things like me making actual money.

I also work at the ROM as a teacher. I get to talk all about dinosaurs, knights, and mummies. It is a great gig and I still don't really know how I got it, seeing as I have literally no qualifications.

I also teach karate, and have practiced it for eleven years. It helps me stay focused and in shape.
I’m really good at
Over-thinking everything, sleeping through loud noises, being unaware of common knowledge, being aware of useless knowledge, moderating debates with Robert's Rules of Order, entertaining children, walking everywhere.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair. It won't sit still on my head. If it's windy out, it will be blowing every which way.

Or maybe that I've turned around on a dime because I just realized I was going the wrong way.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Wolf Hall, The Sound and the Fury, The Golden Mean, Catch-22, Slaughterhouse Five, Leviathan.

Movies: Anything by Pixar, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Dr. Strangelove, Lincoln (and other historical dramas, for that matter).

TV: John Oliver, the Agenda... does watching the news count? TV doesn't feature prominently in my life. I tried watching both the old British and new American versions of House of Cards but got really squicked out really early on.

Food, in no particular order: Steak, shepherd's pie, cake (this one goes without saying), sweet potato, pizza, lamb (but I feel guilty about it), and pretty much anything edible.

Music: I'm not a big music person. Weird, yeah. I find it hard to concentrate with music on. But when I do listen, usually it's to old stuff. Also, if we're being completely honest, to I'll Make A Man Out of You.

Video Games, since it should really be a category: Basically anything by Bioware, WC3, Paradox games, Halo.
The six things I could never do without
1. A pen: so many uses. Sketching, writing, fidgeting etc.
2. A computer: information, entertainment, dating (apparently).
3. A scarf: pretty much from mid-October through March, my neck is cold.
4. Competence: otherwise I would fail at everything...
5. My parents: both in the literal sense that I wouldn't be here, and because they are lovely people.
6. everything on Maslow's hierarchy of needs.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Vaguely-remember statistics.
What I could have said that would have been a much better response to the conversation I had five minutes ago than what I actually said by way of response five minutes ago.
How the TTC will probably not be running smoothly today.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sometimes out with friends. Mostly being an introvert and having a nice evening at home. Shut inside studying during exams.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Inside, I am a misanthrope and a curmudgeon. My soul is ready to be shaking its cane at the antics of the youths.
You should message me if
If you've got a nerdy side to you, however you define that.
If you're not going to end your message with an emoticon.
If you're going to end your message with an emoticon because even a love of properly written English doesn't extend that far.
If you want to tell me that I'm wrong about something/everything.
If you should message me. (Also, if you love tautologies).
