Actual life story (abridged):
I grew up in Montana where I learned to love the outdoors. Went to MSU (Montana State, not Michigan) to study biotechnology. Might have been the only one there that prefered hiking to skiing. After college I did the whole "find yourself thing", but instead of backpacking across a continent I applied to grad school. It made sense at the time. Spent about a year and a half in Houston doing medical research, then came to Austin to study astrobiology, or synthetic biology, or forensic biology, or art history. I figured I'd figure it out when I got here (spoiler: I didn't). Right now I'm working on a PhD Biochemistry at UT. No idea what I'm going to do with that PhD once I get it, teach maybe?, I am however really looking forward to being able to act all offended when someone calls me "Mr".
INFP if you're into that sort of thing
