I'm from the land of beaver tails and maple syrup (that's right, I'm Canadian), although currently I'm hiding out in the UK until I finish my PhD. I'm about a year into the program and am enjoying it immensely!
When I'm not buried in books on China, colonialism, or the tea trade, I like jogging, attending body balance classes (think yoga + pilates + tai chi), cycling, watching tv and knitting (took that one up just to diversify).
I'm generally pretty friendly and outgoing. Can be quiet, but can also be energetic depending on the circumstances. All around an easy person to get along with.
