A little about my past: As I stated above, I lived in Washington state for 20 years. I went to the University of Washington, where I studied anthropology and history, as well as some Russian. While there, I did a study abroad in Prague. After graduating, I went overseas and taught English in the Republic of Georgia for a while. How I wound up in Kansas is a bit convoluted, but the point is that I'm here now, and I'd like to familiarize myself with people in the area.
I'm often described as being on the nerdier side of things, though I don't use the term "nerd" to describe myself. I like science, history, and other academic things. Is "semi-nerd" a word? If so, I guess that'd work. Also, I have something of a strong opinion on the use of "nerd" vs "geek," so interpret that how you will.
