My self-summary
I am a recent graduate looking for his place in the world and someone to take along in that journey.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a recent Neuroscience (Chemistry minor) graduate working as a research associate in the area. My goal is to work for two years and then pursue an MD/PhD in neurology before heading off somewhere else to work in clinical research. Currently, I am three months into an analytical chemistry position that is working off my Chemistry background. I want to see where that takes me for a while before deciding on graduate or medical school.
I’m really good at
Analysis, whether of individuals, situations, concepts/ideas, theories, or otherwise. I have a ridiculous desire to know "everything" and every day I move closer to that intangible ideal. Also, I am pretty slick at learning random computer shortcuts -- mostly to impress myself.
The first things people usually notice about me
The first things people notice are my neat style of dress, my glasses (or contacts if I am feeling adventurous), and my intense/serious demeanor (which is a double-edged sword, admittedly).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Catch-22, Gravity's Rainbow, Stranger in a Strange Land, Nineteen Eighty-Four, Slaughterhouse-Five, Cat's Cradle (favorite), The Bell Jar, and any intelligent, captivating novel.

Movies: Schindler's List, Dr. Strangelove (favorite -- yes, I know its long subtitle), Pulp Fiction, The Ring (original), Kill Bill, and any odd, foreign/independent films.

Shows: I rarely watch television, but I love How It's Made, Monk, Mythbusters, House, and any relatively educational programming available. My guilty pleasures include Shark Tank and random HGTV DIY shows.

Music: I love every genre of music EXCEPT country. My favorites include Pink Floyd, Tool, Meshuggah, Lustmord, Utada Hikaru, Radiohead, Ravi Shankar, and even abhorrent popular music.

Food (cuisines): Japanese, Thai, Indian, Vietnamese, and French in that order.
The six things I could never do without
1. My phone (I love to talk -- thank you unlimited everything)
2. My friends (my support system and an excellent group of people)
3. The Internet (an unlimited font of knowledge)
4. Science (the art of knowledge acquiescence)
5. An education (transcending "necessary")
6. People (solitude quickly turns into boredom)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Morality, mortality, philosophies concerning life's ultimate meaning (maybe nothing -- so it seems), love, and psychology.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing with friends either at home or out somewhere. If not, I am engaged in a quiet activity such as reading.
You should message me if
You "should" (awful word) message me if you are intelligent/not interested in a one-night-stand.
