My self-summary
If I had to describe myself in a couple of adjectives, I would probably say strong-willed, conscientious, and active.

My day-to-day is relatively structured by habit, but I always try to break the patterns when they get too entrenched and lead to stagnation. I admire spontaneous and creative people and the energy to everything they do. I value openness and experimentation, dynamism, culture, and politeness.

I spend an inordinate amount of time day dreaming. I did study philosophy. But I also have a bit of a romantic streak and find motivation in wistful, remote, idealized dreams/visions. Longing is a permanent feature of my being haha.
What I’m doing with my life
I just got back from a semester abroad in Paris, which was definitely one of my greatest experiences so far. They say "reisen bildet", and that certainly held true for my time in France over the past four months. Maybe it was the exhilarating experience of living alone in a totally new place, maybe it was the French, but in either case it was exhilarating and unexpectedly a big culture shock. Am I more stylish? Alas no. Do I lean further left? Probably. Now I'm back in Toronto finishing my last semester of school, and the looming graduation is kind of scary . . .
I’m really good at
Tennis--I like to think I'm a good mental warrior--, learning new languages, things that require sheer persistence
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my height
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The Three Musketeers, The Razor's Edge, The Red and the Black, The Great Gatsby, Death in Venice

The Spanish Apartment, The Bourne Identity, Beyond the Clouds

Arrested Development, The Office, Girls, Parks and Recreation, Community, The Wire, Mad Men, Enlightened

Classical, especially opera, trance, techno

As for food, I prefer savoury to sweet, though the pastries in France were pretty great. Some of my favourite cuisines are Thai and Greek.

My drinks of choice are craft beer (sounds a bit pretentious and hipsters, I know) and cocktails. I tried a Negroni on a trip to Italy, which kindled my love of mixed drinks and led me to start preparing them at home as well. I recently got a recipe book and shaker and have slowly been expanding my liquor cabinet.
The six things I could never do without
Enough sleep--I can put up with a lot of physcial discomfort but not sleepiness--, daily exercise, passport, laptop, intellectually stimulating reading, city life
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Moving to Europe, self-development, the passage of time and aging
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday Night ROM
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't have a driver's licence.
You should message me if
You're a socially rebellious lifehacker
