My self-summary
Hey, I'm Paul. I'm a laid back guy, quiet and insightful. I live five minutes from the U of A campus. I grew up on a farm outside of Sherwood Park, so I guess I'm a farmer at heart. I'm trilingual. I am also a pretty big fan of video games. As you may or may not have noticed, I typically write concisely.

I am a geek, a good listener, and a llama.
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated from the U of A in 2007 with a BA in political science, specializing in international relations, and a minor in history. I currently work for the federal government. I'm pretty well-established for my age, so I don't have any life-altering projects on the go at this very moment. I'm at the point where I'm looking for someone with whom I can share future experiences.
I’m really good at
I am ridiculously good at video games I've never played before. I'm also pretty good at baseball (the real life kind). In addition, I'm a cunning linguist and a master debater. Lame jokes aside, I like to pretend I'm good at billiards, but I'm really not.

I'm currently involved in a D&D campaign with my friends, and I guess I'm "good" at that, although sometimes, the dice are clearly trying to kill me.
The first things people usually notice about me
I use my eyebrows to express feelings when I talk, and everyone points it out.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
(a) Books: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, any Arsène Lupin, and Richard Dawkins. I read the BBC news tracker more than I read novels, to be honest.

(b) Movies: I like a ton of movies. One notable exception is Ghostrider - wow, that movie is the worst. I am a pretty big fan of space battles, so by extension I like Star Trek, Star Wars, BSG, and Firefly.

(c) Music: I like lots of music but prefer techno, trance, and melodic metal. I hate country music and strive to make fun of it whenever I can. I play the cello.

(d) Foods: I don't like eggs (except scrambled), beets, eggplant, tomatoes, green peppers or artichoke hearts. Anything else is great! I especially enjoy a good pizza.
Six things I could never do without
-My computer/internet
-My bike
-Distractions (vidja games, board games, all with friends of course)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I don't think about one big thing in particular. My mind wanders like crazy, and I think about everything all at once.
On a typical Friday night I am
Not doing too much at all, actually. I don't like bars or clubs. You can usually find me hanging out at home. Pretty boring, amirite?!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can tell you in what situations you might want an A-wing instead of a B-wing or a Y-wing.
You should message me if
I seem like an interesting person to you, and you'd like to get to know me better. You believe we have enough in common to sustain a stimulating conversation.

You should also message me if you're braver than I am. I'm shy in real life, and it turns out that translates to the interweb as well.
The two of us
