For someone who loves to write, I find producing a self-summary
pretty difficult. It always sounds so self serving. So I will just
say that I am a graduate student at UVA, working towards my Ph. D.
I like to have fun when possible, but I also really enjoy my job so
I am often doing something science-related.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a third year graduate student in Astronomy, which means I spend
a lot of time in the office. Outside of that though, I spend most
of my time trying to get back into a few hobbies of mine. Mostly
Martial Arts, Writing, Video Games, and Cooking. (Someday I will
open a bakery, or so I like to think.)
I’m really good at
enjoying life in whatever way I can. Letting myself get bogged down
by whatever negative things life brings me takes too much away from
The first things people usually notice about me
Not sure. I'm not a mind reader, sadly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I love reading, so I have a lot of favorites. And even
though I don't like his books now, Tolkien was what got my started
on my bibliophilia, so go Hobbits! I'm currently making my way
through the Wheel of Time series right now, and really enjoying it.
(Except Nynaeve. She needs to go away.)
Movies: Lord of the Rings (The music rocks, and it has that fantasy
feel to it), Inception, Last Samurai, etc.
Music: Eclectic. About the only genres I don't like are rap and
country. My play list will cycle through most everything, from
Trance, to Rock, and even as far as Gregorian Chants. Music is part
of what makes life great, and variety is a must for me.
Food: I will cook/try a lot of different things. Some strange stuff
has made it to my stomach.
The six things I could never do without
Books, Intelligent Conversation, Activity (Anything, Martial Arts,
Skydiving, etc. so long as I can do something interesting with my
time), Good Food, Friends, and Imagination.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What ifs. I love imagining what I could do if only something weird
were about to happen.
Science. I like science. It's like I'm slowly taking in the secrets
of the Universe into my head.
On a typical Friday night I am
most likely I am studying, but if I have the time, I try to spend
Friday nights with my friends. That, or reading a book at home to
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a freak when it comes to spicy food. I enjoy putting ghost
peppers in my dishes (Hottest natural pepper in the world). The
jury is still out whether I am part bird or not.
You should message me if
you feel the urge to do so. I am always willing to make new
