I'm a work in progress....under construction all the time.
Originally from Michigan, I came here for grad school five years ago and stayed.
I like sarcasm, hiking in Great Falls, and dogs, though I'm only allowed a cat in my apartment.
My nickname is Panda...hence my name here. It is one of my life goals to find a panda in China and hug it (legally, of course). Another is to go to Costa Rica and volunteer for the sloth orphanage (update: though I did not get to volunteer for the sloth orphanage, I did get to go to Costa Rica and pet a sloth...close enough). Yes, I know it is odd.
I have a cat named Sterling Mallory Archer, codenamed "Duchess". If you understand this, and it amuses you, we would probably get along.
I run a lot of races - for fun. No timing. I don't actually like running all that much, but working on it. My favorites this year have been Warrior Dash, The Zombie Run, and the Color Run.
