And now I'm looking for good company to join me out and about (or staying in with dinner and a movie). What is good company? Someone interested in the world around them and keen to see more of what's out there.
I'm most passionate about my child and my career, but I have opinions on other things, too. My days are consumed with thinking about cancer and digesting the scientific literature, so I love to hear about what's going on with the rest of the world at the end of the day. I like to listen to other people's stories and I love to learn about new things. The world is a fascinating place, and in a parallel universe I'm a historian or political scientist.
Books are great, music is great, TV is (sometimes) great, museums are great, parks are great, movies are great. There's something to be enjoyed in most things and the right company makes all the difference.
I'm not outdoorsy. I go outdoors (willingly!) and I like nature (except the bugs), but I'm not the sort of person who gets antsy if they stay inside all day. I do like bike rides, horseback riding, and driving in the mountains.
I have a fantastic 8-year-old son (I'm not at all biased).
