I'm usually happy :) I like to sing and dance, I'm unapologetically bad at both, and I enjoy being around people who are as excited to be alive as I am. Sometimes that comes off as "weird" or "annoying because I'm trying to work" to other people, but if you don't rock the boat, you'll never get it off the shore. I have a direction in life and I try to dream big. Usually, my dreams are followed by a series of unrealistic and illogical fantasies like being Batman or understanding String Theory, but I think it's important to have goals in life, even if they're absurd.
I enjoy helping other people and I consider myself to be a caring and sincere individual. I'm immoderately nerdy and I have a dry, sarcastic sense of humor that most people just don't get due to my lack of facial cues.
Depending on how the next 15ish years go, I might try to go back to graduate school, but a lot is up in the air (no pun intended, self-five). I may go back to Colorado at some point if the timing works out.
I'm really good at Rubik's cubes, remembering what that one song is called that goes like ..., winking, quantum physics, wearing my hat sideways, shrinking sweaters in the washing machine, Super Smash Bros, skiing backwards into telephone poles, and not swearing.
Music: I listen to just about anything except country which is ironic because I live in Texas. I do have a soft spot for metal which is not ironic, but it is pretty vivid imagery if I do say so myself. I should be a writer. Women who can sing are basically my Achilles heel.
Food: I'm into almost any type of food. Eating is one of my favorite pastimes and I love cooking. I'm pretty good, but I've never been on any celebrity TV cooking shows so what do I know?
Movies and TV: I'd like to pretend that I don't care about movies and TV, but I want the things I can't have, so I tend to secretly binge watch Netflix over the weekend when I'm not studying. I have no idea why; they're not even good shows/movies. I'm fully aware that I'm completely wasting my time and that I should be doing my laundry or studying for my test next Wednesday. I know I have a problem.

I love to discuss physics. It's kind of my thing. I'll do what I can to avoid the subject if I see glazed eyes, but I could talk about it for hours. One of my life goals is to invent teleportation. Also, I have a special place in my heart for Astrophysics and General Relativity so you can't have that piece. I started doing some amateur astrophotography in my free time, and I might try to get a nicer research grade telescope when I grow up (and stop moving so much).
I'm a bit of an outdoor snob. I love hiking and backpacking but I generally balk at camping requests because they colloquially imply simply driving into the woods to sleep in a car (if you're going to sleep in a tent, you should probably be more than 10 feet from your vehicle). I love looking up at night in the middle of nowhere. Sadly, I have yet to make it out to Big Bend.
I'm also really starting to get into philosophy and religion. I'm an atheist, but I've read through the Bible and Bhagavad Gita (working on the Koran) because religion fascinates me. Every once in a while, when I get bored, I'll whip out some Plato or Epictetus and then the party really gets going.
A recent endeavor I've developed is to learn a few other languages. Spanish would be the optimal choice given that I essentially live in Mexico, but I've started in on ASL and Swedish too. I took Japanese in college because it was a "strategic language". Thanks, counseling department.
I'm hypocritical in that I don't carry/own a concealed weapon/handgun for safety reasons, but if lightsabers existed, I would undoubtedly have two.
