Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I consider myself easy going and non-confrontational.
I also am pretty open; I like to share my interests, and
conversely, want to involve myself with the interests of other
people. I love to try new things.
I love to talk about politics and current events, especially world
affairs. I value someone who can disagree with me but also discuss
it with me without getting offended or upset.
I also love to play board games of just about any kind. My friends
are all into board games and role playing games and I just find
them a lot of fun. I'm not as much for bars and dance clubs - but
again, I always like doing things I don't normally do to 'change
things up' :). Variety is the spice of life.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just finished my M.S. degree at Purdue University in
For the summer, I am teaching at a community college in
Springfield, IL; as an adjunct faculty. My plan is to find either a
community college or a four year college with which I can obtain a
tenure track full time teaching position. Luckily I have a lot of
teaching experience, so I am optimistic in finding one soon! Maybe
even by the Fall of 14, which would be great.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Taking tests. I've a mind for academics, too. I suppose because I'm
into board games so much, I'm good at learning 'new systems' and
'new sets of rules' relatively quickly just by practice.
I'm also good at being sarcastic. Its very much a part of my humor.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm smart; which I think is mainly due to my academic
But I think anyone can get a college degree in whatever they want;
they just have to be persistent. :)

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
4) Diet Soda
5) Treadmills (during winter)
6) Good Food.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What fun things I'm going to do on the next weekend.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Seeing a movie with my family. Or hanging out with friends; playing
board games, card games, video games.. checking out shows.
Generally laid back things, though I'd like to try something more
active and more exciting sometime, too.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I actually like physics and math more than chemistry and have minor
regrets about it. But, there are plenty of jobs out there in
chemistry, so... I shouldn't complain!
