I was raised in a very religious, conservative home, but have since removed myself from those philosophies and ideals. I struggle with expressing my own emotions (people open up to me with ease, but I have difficulty reciprocating), so please be patient with me. I tend to be over analytical. I have a cool temper, I rarely get angry, and I can usually handle criticism. I don't smoke or do drugs, but I love to nurse a glass of moscato every now and then.
2 important things to mention so as not to waste your or my time: 1) I'm a graduate student, so I have little to no money right now (and I will remain in this state for several years) I can't even afford to eat out. So, if you're seeking a sugar daddy to spoil you with material gifts and money, you've got the wrong guy. 2) I'm not religious in any way, I have nothing against religious people, and have many friends and family members who are. I'm fine with being friends with or casually dating a religious person, but anything serious or long-term would have to be with someone who is not religious.
On another note, about me... I am quite the nerd. I'm not judgmental. I love to read, learn new skills and concepts, interact with people, draw, do anything outdoors, cuddling indoors, and playing the piano. My favorite types of movies are dramas, tragedies, or documentaries, but I am open to most movies as long as they are unique in some way. I love the movies: Lord of the Rings, Contact, Castaway, Big Fish, the Bourne Movies, and Watchmen, among others. Some of my favorite TV shows include: Breaking Bad, Prison Break, The Office, Arrested Development, Community, Adventure Time, Louie, and others. Concerning books, I really enjoy books based on science and psychology, but I do enjoy some good fiction too (but it's difficult to find fiction that I like).
My long term goal is to get my PhD here at USU (it will take about 4-5 more years), and to become a researcher and professor at a university.
Some of my short term goals are to learn Spanish, perfect my Sign Language, and to learn how to play the flute.
