My self-summary
I am a nerd, through and through. While frequently partaking in a long day studying at a cafe, I also love going out and experiencing new things. I like to cook, particularly while hosting others. I am an introvert by nature, but also somehow very friendly. I value being a genuine, honest, caring, and open person and look for the same in people I seek out.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a grad student, currently pursuing a PhD. Yup, nerd:)
I’m really good at
listening, reflecting, and giving honest advice. I am somehow always the one friend that everyone still talks to after they've all gotten in fights and stopped being friends.

Also, the details.
The first things people usually notice about me
Perhaps my approachability. People always come up to me in stores asking me questions as if I work there. Maybe its the glasses.

The six things I could never do without
Music, books, my MacBook Pro, cafes, friends, and family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what I should be doing versus what I am doing.
On a typical Friday night I am
I certainly spend my fair share of time at the bars with my friends, or going to a music venue somewhere, but am just as likely to stay in watching bad TV.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It's easier for me to work on fixing other people's problems than to try to fix my own, though I'm working on it.
You should message me if
you think we'd get along. Oh, and you're not a creeper.
