My self-summary
I grew up overseas in the Middle East, and came to Canada when I was 18. I still regard Dhahran as my home, and I visit whenever I can. I think it definitely gives me perspective on Canadian culture, but also limits my understanding of its nuances.

I like open-minded people who have opinions and think about the world - not only it's problems, but the way it functions and who's in it. I enjoy learning how other people's minds work and how they interpret reality. I find myself attracted to critical thinkers who articulate themselves in a way that permits discussion. I love debates and intellectually grasping how we live now and problems that we face - as a generation, and as a collective contemporary living composite.

I also like shitting about, laughing about snot and criticizing Orange is the New Black's Laura Prepon's eyebrow game.

My hobbies are photography (though unfortunately not of late), horticulture, and graphic design. I freelance my work, and I design for some organizations and clubs on campus.

I'm patient, but still don't take shit; I like the idea of being gender-blind, but I don't think I am; I'm sarcastic and sometimes funny, in a Wanda Sykes meets Liz Lemon kinda way; and I am definitely philosophical in the meandering drunk sense.

I like men who can laugh at themselves, are charming, funny, playful and intellectual. Also dancing is a must. A man who can move his hips is a man who can move my hips.

Message me if you have questions or if any of this interests you ( or if none if this makes sense). I'd much rather meet and talk, than talk and talk. Walk the walk with me.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm going through university, hoping to get a Major in Genetics, and a Minor in Ethics. We'll see how things turn out. If not, I can brush up on my pole dancing.
I’m really good at
using big words.
The first things people usually notice about me
I look white, but I'm secretly not.

MUSIC: I'm going to be honest, I don't really listen to music. (Does that make me souless?). I don't find the endless search for new and great music always fruitful, and it gets tiring. But I usually love tracks by Childish Gambino, Justin Timberlake, Frank Ocean, Sky Ferreira, Beyoncé, Tame Impala, Van She, Spoon, Solange, spazzkid, Metronomy, among a few - if that gives you a sense of my tastes.

FOOD: all of it, except for shit that actually isn't food i.e. soy burgers. It isn't meat - stop.
Six things I could never do without
--a face cloth
--most, if not all, my organs
--a notepad
--beautiful things to look at and contemplate
--central air
--food that makes me hate myself i.e. confit du conard, all-you-can-eat sushi, beignets, ~~
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to live a good life, and my mistakes and regrets.

The future.

My dead dog.

How to teach young men to respect women.

How to speak to a dream celebrity if I bumped into them. ("Hi Tilda Swinton, what lies in the pit of your fears and the peaks of your dreams?")

What I should be doing with my time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a blast - either watching a great movie with some instant noodles, or out on the town with great friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love cartoons. I will go out of my way to watch it on Saturday mornings.
You should message me if
you're looking for someone to beguile.
The two of us
