My self-summary
A silly dude currently undergoing that 20-something transitionary phase where he slowly yet erratically settles into static adulthood. Maintenant, (à part créer des monstres de Frankenstein wifis dans mon labo à McGill) ça veut dire que je prends le temps pour déterminer ma place dans ce monde et essayer les choses auxquelles je disais toujours "peut-être plus tard."
What I’m doing with my life
Absolutely nailing this work/leisure balancing act that used to be so difficult. Mornings and afternoons in a lab performing research and learning about office politics in a university setting (you can't buy that kind of segue), evenings spent pumping the gas on several hobbies in an effort to feed that long-neglected creative/spiritual side.
I’m really good at
1) Je m'entendre avec tous. Je suppose que la singularité arrivera dans 20....peut-être 30 années. Qui veut gaspiller leur temps en se disputant quand nos chefs suprèmes robots sont à l'horizon avec les fouets de rallonge?

2) Being MacGyver. Each of my possessions has been viewed as a possible tool to solve a problem at some point in my life. Even my crayons. Especially my crayons.
The first things people usually notice about me
9 sur 10 des Européens sont d'accord que je suis très Canadien and 1 out of 1 mammals agree that I'm somewhat to very goofy. It all plays into this rural dad persona I'm trying to cultivate.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
J'aime mon media biologique. Écrit ce que vous allez écrire, tournez ce que vous allez tourner, joues ce que vous allez jouer, just have a solid hook, avoid skipping steps and don't patronize me.

Examples off the top of my head:
American Beauty (and Pie, for that matter)
The Office
Sticky Fingers
Tame Impala
Indiana Jones
I, Robot (the book, less so the movie)
We Were Born in a Flame
Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Gravity
The Beatles
The Big Short
Jessica Jones
Inside Out
Oryx and Crake
The six things I could never do without
Music
Peanut butter
"Oat" "aboat" "hoase"
Programming
Social interaction
An imagination
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Pourquoi les gens disent ce qu'ils disent et font ce qu'ils font.

How we know that it's silly to let potential embarassment/failure dictate our limitations and yet we continue to limit ourselves anways because that one dude is definitely laughing *at* us.
On a typical Friday night I am
En train d'oublier les 9+ heures de sommeil que j'attendais. Could be because I've hit a whole new level of zen in writing my network simulator, could be because I'm dropping an ethanol hand grenade into my brain in good company.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My instinct has been to err on the side of pessimism in many situations. C'est évident que c'est pas ben le fun, ça. Fait que, je travaille dur à voir le bon côté.
You should message me if
You're a fan of existential conversations during long drives through the country and marathoning terrible tv shows on weekends when you don't feel like getting out of bed.
