What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a graduate student in the Physics Department. My research is in
particle physics. Specifically, I am part of the search for dark
matter. Although my research is related, I'm definitely no Sheldon
Part of my job is to teach the freshman physics courses. There are
few things more rewarding than helping a student reach that "Ah ha"
Some people are completely research oriented, but I see research
and teaching as two sides to the same coin. Eventually I hope to
net a faculty position at a large university so I can pursue both
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Everything. Including modesty.
All joking aside, I'm a pretty good cook. I love to try new recipes
and perfect old ones. I make a lot of different types of food.
Everything from Chinese stir-fries to home-made pizza. Right now
I'm working on chicken enchiladas. I also make a mean gumbo.
I'm also really good at ice skating and hockey. I learned how to
play when I was a kid in Connecticut, and I've been playing ever
since. I play in the local adult league. Bar none, hockey is the
best sport out there. Nothing compares to its the speed, fluidity,
and physicality. If you disagree, you are just wrong :P
I wouldn't say that I'm really good at it, but I also enjoy
dancing. I go to salsa night at the Village and two stepping at
Harry's frequently. One day I would like to learn how to
Random projects. I'm currently starting a hydroponic garden. I'll
let you assume what for ;) (It's vegetables)
The first things people usually notice about me

I'm half Chinese. It's definitely the best of both worlds. I am
good at math and driving. I'm also taller than most
Asians; I enjoy reminding my dad of that fact.
I'm pretty reserved. I wouldn't say that I'm shy, but I tend to be
more introverted than extroverted.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In lieu of 6 things I could never do without, here are 6 things I
hate and could do without:
1) Thinking there are more stairs on a flight of stairs. Going up
and losing your footing groping for that last illusory step or
going down and ending up with your hips in your chest.
2) Loosing socks. Especially as sacrifices to appease the gods of
3) Forgetting what I am looking for in the fridge. I get up, walk
to the fridge, look inside, and then forget what I am looking for.
Then, I remember only after walking all the way back to sit
4) Mushy peas. For that matter, any really soft vegetable that has
the consistency of toothpaste. Lima beans also come to mind.
5) Half yawns. When you have to yawn around other people, but it
only makes it half way. So you fake the rest, but then you feel
paranoid because you think everyone else knows. Then you have a
real yawn anyway.
6) Saying "you too" when you shouldn't. It's kind of a reflex, like
when getting change and someone says "have a nice day." But you
feel really stupid when someone brings you soup at a restaurant and
when they say, "enjoy your soup" you reply with, "you too."
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Problems. Both physical and metaphysical. I have a penchant for
puzzles. Things like the Rubik's cube, Towers of Hanoi, and
Words, how we use them, and their meaning. For instance, when a
girl puts her hair up in one bunch behind her head it is called a
pony tail. When she puts it up in two and they hang on either side
of her head it is called pig tails. Pony tail. Make sense. But pig
tails? It should be two curly corkscrews. I want to see a girl with
a scorpion tail.
I don't spend a lot of time thinking about them, but I also enjoy
memes/rage comics. Here are a two online dating memes:
A Girl's Experience on OkC
A Guy's Experience on OkC
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Making trouble and playing pool at Dudley's Draw, then ending up at
Fuego. Seriously though, how awesome are those tacos?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm really bad at multitasking. Once I was trying to put on some
music, put in my earbuds, and eat a french fry at the same time. I
put the earbuds in my mouth and the french fry in my ear. You don't
want to know what happened to the music...
Poop is funny.
