Have always loved animals and nature, have a dog named Dresden, am a bit of a technology/gadget enthusiast, have only recently discovered the joy of cooking one's own food, love the snow (which despite what it may or may not have been told, Virginia has not truly seen an example of in the 16 years I've lived here), graduated from Virginia Tech (Animal Science major), can swim (just saying - tv for some reason portrays black people as a fleshy analogue to rocks or something), play guitar (so-so) and piano (less so-so), love foreign languages (am starting to learn Arabic), like puzzles, and hate run-on sentences, which I'm currently debating if this qualifies as. If so, I apologize.
I absolutely love learning, and would just be a professional college student if I could afford it. I'm always trying to better understand the world around me and the inane details that no one else cares about (yes, I was that annoying kid who always had one more completely irrelevant question). If paid learner is out of the question, then I'd rather be a paid experimenter and join the Mythbusters.
I am fairly calm, usually nice, always polite, often sarcastic, occasionally over-analytical, and never cheat at anything.
