I am currently working on my Thesis for my Masters in Engineering at the U of A, should be done by the end of the year, just in time for the world to end in 2012.. I think it is pretty interesting stuff, but I am looking forward to rejoining the real world as soon as possible.
During my spare time I like having a pint at a pub or patio. Camping and BBQ's are great also, gotta take advantage of it before winter hits again.
As for TV shows, I like most crime drama type shows, Big Bang Theory, HIMYM, etc. I like movies, but rarely ever go to theatres anymore, if I'm hanging out I'd rather do something social.
