Now, I've found that I'm fed up enough with chemistry research and with academia that I need a break from being a grad student to get to experience being a real adult for once. So I'm dropping out of grad school and attempting to write a Master's thesis while finding a job in the DC area. I'm also hoping to have a bit of the life in DC I didn't manage to have in high school, exploring the city, going on bike rides with friends, and cooking big meals for people. (I really like to do Polish cooking, have experimented some with Indian cooking, and just got a Chinese cookbook that I'm interested to try out.)
Besides finding a career path that's more enjoyable than work in the science mines, I want to get a chance to explore the DC area more now that I get to live in it as an adult. If you have any cool places you want to show me or visit with me, please let me know! Once it's warm enough, I'm planning on going on bike trips as much as I can. I also really like to cook and hope to have weekly dinner parties for friends. In grad school, I managed to get myself quite overcommitted with extracurriculars, like being treasurer of the student government and president of the science fiction club, so I'm kind of looking forward to having free time that's actually free.
My favorite food these days is probably Polish -- bigos, pierogi, golabki, and so on -- and it's what I'm most likely to cook for other people. But, honestly, it's not very healthy, and I've been trying to eat more Indian-style legume-based stews instead. I also need to try making Cornish pasties again, because I really enjoyed them on a trip to see my best friend in England a couple of years ago and have never been able to find them for sale in the US.

And I'll save the sixth for a spare.
History has been an interest of mine for a while. I went into college very interested in the Classical Mediterranean and somehow came out with a minor in Medieval European history. More recently, I've been reading a lot about the Bronze Age and about the history of religion. One of my goals for "when I have some time" is a project to write a world history of an alternate Earth with different geography and cultures.
I also think a lot about new places I can explore, and whether I can get anyone to come with me on long walks and bike rides and such.
You're interested in someone to talk to or hang out with. And perhaps go on long walks or bike rides. Or to cook things with.
You want a pen-pal.
You're interested in talking about alternate histories of various sorts, or world-building. Or about trains and transit systems. (Bonus points if you mention a proposal you have in mind for a new subway line somewhere when you contact me.)
You want to practice Spanish with me: I'm planning on taking Spanish classes at PG Community College this summer, because I want to brush up on all the high school Spanish I've forgotten.
You want to practice computer programming with me: one of my goals for this year is to try to teach myself some amount of programming, since it seems to be the path to employment these days.
You want to talk about gender identity or non-binary gender. Or sexual orientation and things. I'm pretty comfortable talking about my gender identity if you have questions.
