I'm intermittently goofy and intense. I cope with third semester
calculus by bombarding my professor with dad-grade puns-- I

-dancing: generally more reserved. To a newbie I seem like a good
swing dancer; to a more experienced dancer, I'm technically a bit
sloppy and overemphatic, but very fun to watch.
-out and about: I may have just made some goofy/snarky/punny
comment, or vocalized some observation about my surroundings.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
