I believe that we should always be learning something in life, so I am constantly cultivating my interests, and seeking new ones to explore. I tend to have fairly obscure academic interests, and I love to ramble on about them. Lately I've been getting really into archaeology and ancient literature, so I frequently give unsolicited opinions on those two things. Of course, I want to learn about whatever is important to you, and you should be willing to rattle away at that. I collect first editions and primary source books from the early 20th century. I'm something of a film buff, everything from silent films to this year's Oscar bait. Of course, I enjoy my talkies as much as anyone else, and you should be eager to go into film analysis mode as soon as we get out of the ten o'clock showing of Dallas Buyer's Club.
I am in my second year of law school and I love it more with each passing day. My plan is to go into either intellectual property/high tech or health law. I am very interested in fair use and regulatory issues. Topics like human gene patenting and rare disease drug manufacturing obligations get my juices going. I'm very active in student government and the law review, but I would have no problem carving out time for the right woman.
Music is a passion of mine. My favorite bands are probably Bloc Party and the Smiths. Right now my iPod is spinning a mish-mash of Broken Bells, Kendrick Lamar, The Decemberists, Tokyo Police Club, and that Liberian song I heard last week in New York. I am also a pretty big Kanye fan. Of course, I can also be seen (or heard?) laughing at the latest Nerdist or Comedy Death Ray podcast, or anything NPR or ESPN put out.
The first thing I look for in a girl is that she is a good person. Intelligence is 1(a). There's nothing I like more than a sophistacted girl who can carry on a conversation.
I like shows, I like bars, but above all I like having a conversation and learning about other people. I can be lively and talkative, but I live for those still, quiet moments in life where you just feel happy and at peace.
Although I'm currently disgusted with the malfunctioning of our political system, politics are important to me, and should be to you. Political science was one of my majors. Even if we disagree, that's 100 times better than one of us not having a stance at all. I can be civil and cool-headed and still get butterflies around you.
