My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Things I like: Aimless wandering, science, quality writing, taking things apart and putting them back together, beer, feminism, gender and inequality politics, music, and photography.

Oh, and cute animals. Those are important.

"I can believe things that are true and things that aren't true and I can believe things where nobody knows if they're true or not.
[...]
I believe that life is a game, that life is a cruel joke, and that life is what happens when you're alive and that you might as well lie back and enjoy it." <-- The ability to believe anything, at least temporarily, is golden.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Getting my PhD and loving it. I play with lasers, build electronics, and generally do science-y quantum things (I swear I can explain this better, but it takes several more paragraphs than would be reasonable here. Ask if you're curious :D).

Otherwise, I spend my time taking pictures (some examples), reading (see below, but longform journalism, literary fiction, and philosophy recently), and going for aimless walks to space out, think, and people watch. Cambridge is wonderful for this, especially since it usually involves stopping for coffee on the way. UPDATE: It was wonderful for this until snowpocalypse 2015 at least. Could really use some spring right about now.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can explain the answer to "Fucking magnets, how do they work?" while exceptionally drunk at a bar to a non-scientist stranger. Empirically tested. I'm pretty sure I can do it sober too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Recently finished books: The Symmetry Teacher by Andrei Bitov, V. by Thomas Pynchon, Trigger Warning by Neil Gaiman, which prompted a re-read of American Gods, and, most recently, Although Of Course You End Up Becoming Yourself (extended interview with DFW by David Lipsky). All highly recommended.

Joy reading: Longform journalism (The New Yorker, The Atlantic, NY Review of Books, NY Mag's better pieces, etc.), literary fiction, well written sci-fi/fantasy

More serious reading: Philosophy of science, analytic philosophy, psychology, physics, and math

John Oliver is a genius. Still missing Colbert. Jon Stewart still has his on nights. That mostly covers my television watching since QI is over until next fall.

Music-wise, I'm on an indie/electronic kick lately. I also have a vinyl collection of mostly 70s rock and classical (that I'm slowly expanding with modern vinyls and whatever I find in thrift shops), which is how I wind down. Otherwise, my guilty pleasures are late 90's/early aughts punk rock and emo
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How ridiculously complicated the world is and how little of it science actually has a grasp on. How much more complicated interpersonal relationships, communication and politics makes it.

Baby animals with derpy faces.
