My self-summary
This is a total mess. Apologies for the lack of editing. Most recent update: just went bungee jumping off the Pacific Northwest bridge, and it was awesome. :D

January 19 update: WOOT! Just graduated with my Doctorate of Physical Therapy! Really I haven't responded to anyone's messages--studying for boards! Don't mean to be rude.

February update: Got a perfect score on my licensure exam!!!

April update: I live in Oregon now. YESSSSSS!

Annnnnd go. I like the outdoors, whitewater kayaking, rock climbing, snowboarding, hitting the gym, reading in the Journal of Sports Physical Therapy, nerf guns, ultimate frisbee, and playing drums and guitar. Update for December 2012: got a beautiful new mandolin for my birthday. Really enjoying learning to play it right now.

I once tried out for American Gladiators. I was in a photo shoot for an Indian beer company and got clown-faced to make me look Indian (did...not...work). I once ate three burritos at Qdoba in one sitting and then experienced a near-permanent food coma.

I was an anthropology major in undergrad. I was in my first year of law school when I hurt my shoulder. I went for physical therapy--first time--and four months later, I left law school to work on becoming a physical therapist. I love what I do. High five to anyone who's ever started over for all the right reasons. I'll graduate with my doctorate in PT in January, and I think I'd like to spend some time out west (e.g. Oregon). I've never been there, but I've met too many people (many of them kayakers) who have told me I need to go explore there. I'm dying to kayak Devils Canyon of the Middle Fork of the Feather in California. I've heard it's amazing. Anyway, when I'm not exploring, I'll be working and hopefully pursuing an orthopedic clinical specialist certification through a residency program.

I'm involved in research with a few professors looking at volitional activation failure in the painful infraspinatus muscle (one of your rotator cuff muscles). It's more fascinating than you realize. And we electrocute people's shoulders, which is kinda entertaining too. ;)

I didn't start playing guitar until I was in college. I didn't start playing drums until even later. Everyone should give playing music a shot--you don't have to be amazing. When I play with friends, the hours just fly by because it's so much fun. I just got back from playing with a total stranger--turned out to be a professor of biological psychology--who was ripping it sitting by the quad at Arcadia. Saw him playing, said hi, and now I've got someone new to play with.
What I’m doing with my life
Working on the job search. I've flown across the country twice in the last week and a half. I seem to live on a plane.

I spent two months last fall in Salt Lake City doing a clinical internship at Intermountain Medical Center. I drove cross country, and when the Rockies appeared on the horizon near Denver, I got chills. Loved SLC and the area. Saw Yellowstone, the Grand Tetons, and kayaked on the Payette River in Idaho. Planning on kayaking the Colorado river through the Grand Canyon in 2014 with friends. They say it's life-changing. Also starting to make plans to see Yosemite. Why?

Starting around 2:30. That's why.
I’m really good at
doing Chewbacca impersonations, whitewater kayaking, fighting zombies, and tying knots.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told I smile with my whole face. If you don't get crow's-feet, it wasn't a real smile anyway.

The six things I could never do without
Exercise
Music...singing and playing, listening, and live shows

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Figuring out how I can have the most adventure once I get out of school, what will be the most satisfying kind of life for me, where did I put my keys, and who can I get to play dodgeball with me?

Was that an anacoluthon?

Someday I'd like to come up with the most fun game ever. I like thinking about the aspects of different sports and playground games that are most fun (e.g. hockey is great because it's continuous play, or sitting out in dodgeball stinks because you spend more time sitting than playing).

I love thinking about exercise routines--whether it's weight-lifting, circuit-training, or plyometrics.
On a typical Friday night I am
- Just getting back from rock climbing at Sport Rock in Sterling
- Going out in Winchester
- Camping out in western Maryland and going whitewater kayaking the next day

December update: most nights I'm just dazed after having spent the day studying for my licensure exam.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think I've ended up answering a lot of the questions that OkCupid throws at you maybe a little too honestly. I can be professional, honest, crude, one of the most polite people you will ever meet, and a goofball.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 25–33
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
...you're the owner of this dog, capuchin, or goat. http://themetapicture.com/hands-down-the-greatest-picture-taken-this-year/
...you need a physical therapist and a date
...you find yourself speaking in a foreign accent at least once a day.
...you think you might like me to give you a whitewater kayaking lesson. I used to teach part-time on the Lehigh river in Jim Thorpe.
...you don't mind that I think this is funny:

If you message me, I *will* write back. Sometimes we won't have a lot in common or make the best match, but if you're taking time out to say hi, I can take time out to say hi back!
