My self-summary
I have a really hard time summarizing the sum-total of myself in a finite space, but I shall do my best.

I've been alive for more than twenty-five years now and still don't quite know myself, exactly. I recognize my likes and dislikes, of course, but deeper and more fundamental questions still elude me. Am I a good person? Have I done good things? Has my life made a difference? It's really impossible for me to say when I look at the entirety of my existence.

I do know that I am someone who approaches life with a logical, rationalist perspective in many cases. Some have told me this is a positive thing, and others think I live in the realm of boring reality for longer than is healthy. I have a sardonic (sometimes mean-spirited) sense of humour (that is nonetheless fun-loving in nature) and I tend to be a cynic.

I don't know if any of this pap really DESCRIBES who I am. I firmly believe that meeting and speaking to someone will always dwarf any self-written "biography", but that is just my perspective. In any case, I'm always up for a good conversation.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a lawyer. That is to say, I have a law degree and I have been called to the bar. Currently, I work at a firm deep in the downtown core. It's been a great, humbling experience.

My work is balanced with a healthy amount of staring at my computer screen and being horrible at video games.

As well, I do a little blog-writing in my spare time. If you have a few minutes and are interested in bleeding from your eyes, please check it out:

I’m really good at
Hmm, arguing? Though, depending on who I'm talking to, it's not a very valued skill. I have a fairly adept mastery of the English language, but I usually hate most writing assignments. I also am pretty good at getting just about anyone to laugh.

I'm also a very talented actor. I have about 20+ years of experience successfully convincing my friends that I am interested when they talk to me about their problems.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my sense of humour and my walk. I have a peculiar type of each. I'm told I have a fairly noticable smile, too.

Oh, and that I don't drink, I guess. Not even a little bit. I love hanging out with my friends at bars and whatnot, and I certainly do not begrudge people who do drink. It just isn't very fun for me, and thus I don't engage in it. This has some downsides, though, as the drunkenly stupid behaviour of other people is something I have significantly less tolerance for given my own non-inebriated nature. Then, it becomes almost circular: maybe I am the one who has the problem when it comes to drinking (i.e. not drinking is the problem). I actually briefly considered that once.

And then burst out laughing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Movies: The Godfather (parts I and II), Blood Diamond, Gattaca, The Departed, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Old School.

Food: Chicken wings, well-made spaghetti, steaks, McDonald's (I never said I had taste, just that I am honest).
Six things I could never do without

2. My laptop
3. A bout of maniacal laughter
4. Books
5. Sarcasm
6. Logic
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The meaning of life.

No, sorry, that was a joke. It's such a banal and cliched question, when you really look at it. I like thinking about problems, problem solving and how to approach different dilemmas with unique solutions. I know it sounds silly and fake, but I love thinking about creative problem solving and shit like that.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sitting at home and wondering if all this education was worth it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
that I am on a site like this. This should be everyone's answer to this particular query.
You should message me if
you enjoy laughing, cracking jokes and can stand being the butt of some jokes.
The two of us
