My self-summary
Perhaps a poorly chosen name for a dating site, picked it out of habit don't read too much into it.

I've always liked to describe myself as a socially-competent nerd. Most aspects of my personality and life have a dual nature. I spend my days in the lab but my nights on the hockey rink. I've gone to war but now I focus my effort on trying to make lives better. I make jokes that often cross the line into ridiculous hyperbole while attempting to stay firmly grounded in reality.

In a less serious light I'm working on figuring out the best way to live my life. So far that has resulted in a very odd work schedule, a wardrobe that consists almost exclusively of t-shirts with science jokes on them and jeans, moderate amounts of exercise, a habit of going far too fast on my motorcycle, a group of friends that I wouldn't trade for the world, and an almost inappropriate dedication to the Oxford comma.

I find that it's extremely important to have a goal in life and to be in constant pursuit of that goal, otherwise what are you really doing with your life? In that vein I'm always trying to learn new things, understand opposing viewpoints, and make myself a better person. Any belief or idea that I have is open to both internal and external sources of criticism or questioning and those that don't hold up are replaced. It's important to me that I hold a justifiable and defensible set of morals and standards. That being said I'm very happy with who I am and I'm really looking for someone that complements my life as opposed to feeling like I need someone to complete it.
What I’m doing with my life
Being a grad student, whatever that means. Lately it has meant 3am trips into the lab. Luckily I just finished the last of my classes so things might turn around soon. When I'm not in lab I've been coaching Junior Gold hockey which has proven considerably more time consuming and frustrating/rewarding than I had anticipated.
I’m really good at
Doing science to things, trying to cook, and making inappropriate comments.
The first things people usually notice about me
Currently it's the ridiculous beard that I'm cultivating, been going since August 11th and I'm not sure when I'll stop. (see the second picture of me for an idea, that was last year's but the current one is pretty similar)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: For a long time I've been reading non-fiction ranging from science to politics and current events. My favorite fiction books are 1984 and Fahrenheit 451, for some reason I'm drawn to novels about dystopian societies.

TV: I get stuck on a new show from time to time, lately its been The League. Futurama, Frisky Dingo, and Arrested Development have to be my favorites. In that same vein Archer has burst into my life. If you've seen them then you have a pretty good idea about my sense of humor.

Music: The Black Keys, Tool, Florence and the Machine, Mumford and Sons as well as almost anything on the Current.

Food: I'm not picky at all when it comes to food, Pho is my biggest comfort food at the moment.
Six things I could never do without
Things to do science to
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Science, my future, new foods to either wrap in bacon or put nutella in and/or on.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends, every once and a while I really do enjoy just sitting on the couch and relaxing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really want a pair of yoga pants, I figure if you ladies can pull them off then I have a shot.
You should message me if
You want to, otherwise why would you?
The two of us
