Here's some background music as you read this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOyIJn7uNVM
I'm originally from Maryland (DC area/MoCo), went to undergrad in Rochester, NY, and now I'm living in State College, PA. I'm a science person, and I find something fascinating about everything. I'm passionate for new opportunities, what the future may bring, and for discovery. Love travel (when I can) and I like to immerse myself into a location as much as possible. Nonetheless I haven't traveled too much though.
My personal motto is "לֶךְ-לְךָ/Lekh l'kha." It translates to "Go for yourself!" My secondary motto is "Forward and onward."
I like a guy who can play board games, or I can go out of the house with and walk around the block (I sound a little too city bound at this point), one who enjoys a retreat into nature and not just a park but the actual country. I like guys who can cook with me. I also like men haha... I like men who can get up early and head to the market with me, or walk 30 blocks to a museum, and 20 more for an evening meal. I like men who can appreciate good beer and good wine. But this is what I find to be charming, but I'm really looking for a guy who will have a functional relationship with me. And in case you wanted to know, handsome is my type.
I love music. When I was much younger, I played piano and clarinet. I don't just like music from the classical periods, though a lot of other music too. It is, for me, the best form of escapism, and the only way I could like it more is if I had synesthesia, so music I'm listening to could look as awesome as it sounds.
Life is still very novel to me. I've had a handful of experiences, but I keep looking forward to new things. New friends, perhaps dating, are what I expect here (most definitely friends).
I enjoy technique and process, working with my hands, and I have a reliable ability to learn others. Cooking, home improvement, and lab skills have definitely experienced my learning ability. Mechanics'd be nice to learn.
