I studied a lot of physics and a bit of cell biology and biochemistry in school, but it's weird--I think that I've learned more about the field and the phenomenon of science since I started teaching it to middle school kids.
I work very hard at being a good listener, who can genuinely sympathize without offering unsolicited advice. I had a friend do this for me when I was going through a rough patch, and it's the kind of thing that I want to be able to do for other people.
I really like wearing costumes with swords--for the last two Halloweens I was Aragorn and The Dread Pirate Roberts. Next year, I'm thinking Marquis de Lafayette (I need a sabre).
I'm looking for an attractive, intellectual woman who's willing to scramble up a rock wall, take a series of lectures on the Roman Empire, or chill out and watch a baseball game (or at least can deal with me doing all of those things).
