Hey, I'm Andrew. I just spent 3 years pursuing a physics degree in Santa Cruz prior to heading back to Bakersfield.
I'm an introvert that loves people. I bounce between being a little quiet and being overly sarcastic and making terrible puns, but the latter is mostly just one of the ways I show affection. It's correlated to my belief that life is far too short to be taken seriously.
I place extreme value in genuine relationships, whether they be platonic or romantic. We're all busy people with lives to lead, so let's try to make each other better.
What I’m doing with my life
Hoping the bulk of my physics stuff can be transferred to csub's engineering programs, teaching/learning martial arts and introspecting on my future.
I’m really good at
I'm good at what I'm passionate about. Martial arts and science are the current, in the past it was pokemon and video games.
I'm pretty good at making statements that are borderline asinine appear deep and thoughtful.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've got a horrible disfigurement and can't go into public without drawing crowds.

Food: As far as meats go I'm partial to chicken. I love some good veggies and fruit, and nearly live off of cliff bars and bananas. I'm also fond of cheeses (especially camembert), and dark chocolate. I'm a big fan of Thai and Japanese food.
The six things I could never do without
3. Good stories (film/books/etc.)
6. The obvious physiological necessities
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I'm going, what I'm doing, and who I'm becoming. Trying to find a path to grow into who I want to be, but I still need to figure out who that is.
That and what I'm going to make for dinner.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with folks, reading, watching movies, and recovering for the upcoming week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One time I fell on my ass so hard it broke
You should message me if
You'd like to talk about life, the universe and everything with a guy who always knows where his towel is.
