Me in short points: I love science, and am highly prone to "geeking out" about it and going on about science popularizing. (Carl Sagan is one of my favorite people to exist, ever.) If anything truly makes me sad about America, it's how low our scientific literacy is. I'm atheist and non-belief is a very important quality to me. I tend to call my lifestyle "evidence based" - I make my big decisions the way the evidence actually points, and I'm not afraid to reevaluate down the line if the data changes! I'm also a flaming liberal and a strong intersectional feminist, but I really think those all go hand in hand. I highly, highly value intellectualism, and if you're the type that isn't able to discuss good literature, or politics, or science, instead of a reality TV show, we probably won't have much to talk about. It might sound cliched, but a brain being put to good use is and can be one of the most attractive things to me.
I am musically inclined - I play flute, sax, baritone, tuba, and piano (Although admittedly not well at the moment - it's been awhile!)
I plan on learning cello in the next few months. I genuinely enjoy classical music and film scores (Hans Zimmer is a genius of our time).
Less seriously -
Things I excel at: force-snuggling my cat, singing songs from Disney movies out of tune, making friends with all the cats in any room I enter instead of the humans, functioning on little sleep, having the attention span of a gnat, spending free time on tumblr, and whining about wanting a kitten. (At least lately.)
I pick up languages pretty easily and I think it's a lot of fun - Currently fluent in two, working on numbers three and four now!
I'm putting more of a focus on fitness and health so in the last year I've lost weight and started toning up. I'm trying to become more of a runner (At this point it's still a love/hate relationship but it's happening on a semi-regular basis), and I enjoy hiking. Last summer I went white water rafting for the first time and had a blast even though I'm generally about as far from an adrenaline junkie as you can get. (It will take a miracle and probably bribing me with pizza to get me on a roller coaster with you. If it goes upside down, forget it.)
If you think feminism is stupid, value a belief in a god, or have conservative values, may as well move on now!
I'm sorry to say that I do genuinely mean it when I say that I will not take the time to message someone back if they haven't taken the time to put in effort, or write in actual, proper english in their profile and their message, so you've been warned.
