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.
Oh, and answering okcupid questions is something I find compelling in a rat-in-a-Skinner-box sort of way: it's opinion after opinion as fast as you can press the button! So apologies in advance if you decide to check them out.
I 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.
My long-term plans currently involve passing my exams and articling.
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.
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.
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.
Politics and ethics.
How the TTC will probably not be running smoothly today.
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).
