Self-summaries are brutal, so i'm just going to rattle off some things about myself that I feel are relevant.
Conversation, learning, observing, and growing as a person are my priorities in life. There is nothing I enjoy more than a good meal, good conversation, and relating to other people on new levels.
My hobbies include museums, music, film, astronomy (mostly in documentary/planetarium form), aquariums, art and all forms of expression that aren't overly abstract / pretentious (i'm specifically thinking of Rothko, etc), walks and hiking, discovering new places to eat, cooking, comedy in all forms, concerts, trivia, board games, video games, bedroom games, camping, i'd like to add fleeing the earth to the list when the technology finally gets up to snuff with my wishes. I really want to add european travel to that list soon.
I'm a very sarcastic and funny person. I'm totally going to throw that out there, and then have no evidence of it for the rest of this profile.
I had five different majors in college and never finished any of them. Checking "some college" on things makes me a sad panda when I have 8 years of college education. I plan to return to college and finish after I gain IL residency.
Alright, so What makes me unique?
I'm a gamer. Not the "ignore everyone for 8 hours a day while i play halo" kind, but the "social gamer" kind. My big games right now are Mario Kart 8, Super Mario 3-D World, and the new Super Mario Bros.
I love food. Show me a new place to eat, and i'll want to go there twenty times so that I can try everything on menu.
My fundamental belief system is best described by Neil Degrasse Tyson: "When I wake up each morning I have two goals. Know more than I knew yesterday, and to reduce human suffering."
