I hail from Kansas and moved here from Arizona. Where I end up after I finish my program is anyone's guess.
I'm a PhD student at PSU
I'm an introvert
I'm kind of a serious person
I'm highly independent
My humor is generally limited to the occasional witty one liner (I try to be wittier than "that's what she said..." but sometimes it just suits the moment)
I enjoy beer and food (who would have thought?)
I'm an all-weather cyclist (I don't own a car)
I usually relax by watching movies or TV shows, but I also enjoy some time in nature or doing some other random activity with friends.
But what does any of that really do to set me apart from the hundreds of other choices you have on this site? Nothing, right? So how about this?
I have a layered personality in which only those closest to me get to see certain aspects of me. It leads many of my friends to be surprised by those moments I reveal new sides of myself.
I am driven by my passion for knowledge and knowing that with that knowledge I can and will make a difference for some segment of the greater population. Although that knowledge also comes with the price of becoming a bit negative about the world.
I have a tendency to have random bouts of spontaneity. What happens during those bouts is anyone's guess, but it's pretty unlikely to lead me to jail (I do have a tad bit of risk aversion after all).
I am deeply loyal to the few I bring into my "circle of trust", but I never refer to it as such.
I'm not religious but I guess you could call me spiritual and rarely pass judgement on someone who is religious/spiritual unless they are clearly delusional. If you're interested, I enjoy talking about it. In fact there are few subjects I won't talk about (though, if you wanted to talk about the Kardashians or other celebrities/shows that can be grouped with them, I may slap you).
So who am I looking for?
Someone who can keep up with me on intelligent conversation and willing to ask the challenging questions or call me out on my bull shit.
Someone who enjoys to spend downtime just camping out on the couch watching Netflix but is also willing head out to play pool or go bowling or have a game night with friends.
Someone who can expose me to new things whether it be ideas, activities, places, etc and is willing to tag along with me for some spontaneous adventures.
Someone with a romantic heart, enjoys corniness, and won't mind that I probably watch more chick flicks than they do.
Or just anybody. I like to be surprised by the unexpected.
