Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I know some people have this notion of what a scientist is in their
heads from grade school; some wallflower who's quiet, submissive,
and shy...well, allow me to be the evidence to the contrary. I'm
loud, implulsive, rash and all around bubbly....and that's how my
friends and family would describe me. Chemistry is far more
creative then people give it credit for....but that's explained
I wish I knew what correct combination of factors will make this
profile be a true representation of who I am as well as what I'm
searching for. What sort of buzzwords and key phrases that will
trigger the correct mental picture of my personality in the minds
of people I've never met. But until I find that perfect balance,
this is gonna be a work in progress; updated in my trademark
train-of-thought type rambaling. Sorry :P
I really don't know what to put here....do I be honest and show my
flaws in the hopes of finding someone who can overlook them?
Do I hold them back till I think they can handle it?
Do I keep them hidden forever?
How many lies-via-omission of myself is it before it's too
When do I tell enough so that I show myself?
At what point do I become someone else?
Should I be assertive?
How much is too much?
When is it not enough?
I may, admittedly, not look like it. But ask anyone who's known me
for more then an hour, and I'm a powder-keg of energy just waiting
for a reason to explode. Are you gonna be that spark?
UPDATE: If you've gotten to this point, I implore you to go check
out my notes before sending me a message, thanks.
CORRECTION:........I can't find the note section V.V; so instead
I'll just post it in the section below
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After graduating Ithaca College with a B.S. in Chemistry, I'm busy
working my way through my first year as a RPI first year PhD grad
student. Basically, right now, that's a fancy title for an Organic
Chemistry baby-sitter twice a week for three hours making sure the
undergrads don't set themselves, or the building on fire...mostly
the building. Since this is my first (and only research-free)
semester, I figured I'd try my hand at seeing if I could find a
serious relationship before I become involved in my studies. Right
now, that's about the only major thing going on around here for me
save for the occasional drink at the Union pub.
*UPDATE* : If any of my past visitors remember that long addition
about going to South Korea....yeah...scrap that. Things didn't work
out as antisipated, and I'm back in Troy till further notice (YAY).
I know I should've updated this alot earlier (i've been home since
Jan.) but school and life kept getting in the way; and for a long
time I had given up on finding anyone. But I'm back, and I do hope
that someone proves me wrong, will it be you?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Chemistry, obviously...it is paying the bills after all (literaly).
But, it's not just in the lab, I think a good chemistry "student"
should be able to, and can, apply chemistry to a wide range of
This leads to the second talent, cooking. All cooking is a long
chemical reaction composed of a mixture of ingrediants or reagents,
some acid/base reactions, and the use of heat, reflux, or
distilation methods. It's the chemistry you can eat!
On the non-scientific end of things, I'm a writer, artist, poet,
and enjoy trying my hand at all sorts of creative outlits (acting
included). I tend to play the fool, and make people laugh, usually
at the expense of my intelligence or physical well-being i.e.
playing dumb when someone makes a suggestive comment/joke or
climbing trees/rocks/buildings/benches/tables/chairs/your mom.
Hense the name, "jester".
Oh....and I enjoy kareoke. I put this seperate cause it asks for
things I'm good at....and singing's not one of them. But that
doesn't mean I don't enjoy it. Get a drink or two into me, and I'll
be belting out Journy's "Don't Stop Believing", Def Leppard's "Pour
some sugar on me", and Bowling For Soup's "1985" with the rest of
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If this was undergrad, I'd probably say my red&white jester hat
complete with bells. I wore it for my orintation and first week of
classes...guess the nickname stuck.
Now though, I'd have to guess that it's probably my long, curly,
brown hair. But after having it for several years, I've gotten used
to some of the sideways looks.....I'd much rather be noticed and
stand out then simply blend into the crowd.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: My childhood favorite has to be "The Phantom Tollbooth". But
since then I've expanded slightly to Piers Anthony's Xanth and
Apprentice Adept series, and Memoirs of a Geisha.
Movies: Airplane, Nightmare Before Chrstmas, The Shawshank
Redemption, The new Sherlock Holmes, Any of the James Bond films
with Connery or Bronson. I'm a big fan of pixar's 6, Shrek,
Monster's Inc., and WALL-E.
Music: For the most part, anything that can get my blood pumping.
Trance, Techno, Pop, some instrumental, Foriegn, and 80's rock (Bon
Jovi, White Snake, Def Leppard, Twisted Sster, Billy Idol)
Food: Basiclly, anything you put in front of me I'll at least try
once, unless it has nuts, peanuts (which is a legume), coconut, or
excessive amounts of seaseme seeds....I'm Allergic. And the same
goes for if I'm the one cooking the meal, I'll use whatever's in
the kitchen some how...not all of it comes out edible I admit, but
either way, it's a good learning experience.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Everyone seems to give the same generic answers of Friends, Family,
Love, pets...etc. So, I'm gonna assume that you'll trust me when I
forgo those obvious answers for a few more creative
1. A well stocked kitchen (not only because I enjoy food, but I'm
also an avid, though amateur, chef; and enjoy cooking for those I
2. The stuffed teddy bear I've had since I can remember. It'd been
with me from home, to college, across Europe, and back again.
3. An excuse to buy someone something to cheer them up.
4. Chocolate. (what can I say, got a sweet tooth)
5. My imagenation
6. Video Games, RPG's mostly.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
basically....a whole lot of nothing. Sometime i have these really
long day dreams about things in my life that "could be"....like if
I got a dog, won a nobel prize, or got caught up in a international
assasination. You know...just every day sorta things. I guess it
comes from the feeling that at times...my life feels pretty
uneventful, and some excitemennt would make it that much better.
On a typical Friday night I am

Usually sitting in my apartment after just cooking dinner and
either playing those aforementioned videogames, working on my

is that I still sleep with my teddy bear from childhood. He's gone
not only to college and grad school with me, but also to London,
and on my tour of Europe. I find him a comforting and reassuring
presence, and on those bad nights, it's nice to have something to
