I've been in Austin for about three years now, originally from WA
state. I'm loving the sun and heat. I love being active and
outdoors, but also just hanging out with friends. I like bars where
I don't have to shout to be heard, and I love exploring new places
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to finish my PhD. I'm told it's always this frustrating.
I always make sure to balance work with fun though. In my free time
I enjoy soccer, running, pub quiz and reading anything not work
related. I'd like to start hiking more now that it's not hot enough
to burn the soles off my shoes.
The first things people usually notice about me

later on in the conversation.
