My self-summary
TL;DR:
I live an exciting, adventurous, silly, social, and healthy life. I'm pretty happy with it. I'm looking for someone like-minded/like-demeanored to do random acts of kindness, absurd acts of silliness, outdoor activities, intellectual discussions, and of course, cuddling, with.

Personality traits (Me):
Vibrant & exuberant, friendly, outgoing, extroverted, and welcoming but not loud. I dislike loud people.
Optimistic and Cheerful I am pretty much the embodiment of the word "happy"
Creative/Artistic- I paint, do henna, build trees, sew, make jewelry, sculpt, pretty much everything. (although not particularly spectacular at any of them).
Competitive- I like challenges. Physical challenges, board game challenges, baking challenges. Any challenge! The weirder the better. (Mostly I compete with myself though, so no worries)
Adventurous/Outdoorsy <3 REI
Lightly nerdy I'm on the not-so-nerdy end of the spectrum. Although that's relative to my friends and not to yours... so you might think I'm way nerdy. :p
Confident
Silly Have you seen my pictures?
Oh, and if you're into the acronym things, apparently I'm ENFJ. Interesting, since I used to be an introvert. Also, this means on the Star Wars personality type chart, I'm Padme Amidala. I think this is acceptable, I've even got the outfit. :)

Personality Traits (You???):
...is passionate about what they do (job and/or hobbies).
...is optimistic, and generally happy with their life
...can put up with all my craziness (I tend to coerce my friends into celebrating wacky holidays with me)
...challenges me & challenges himself/strives for self-improvement/continuous learning
...is intelligent
...is interested in science
...is as enthusiastic about traveling as I am (hiking, camping, road trips, international trips, all sorts of travel)
...is outdoorsy hiking and camping are mandatory summer activities that we must share!
...is genuinely interested in bettering society by what they do (that's my main motivation for scientific research. I want to make a meaningful contribution)
...is communicative
...is artistic/open to artistic ventures
Basically, I'm looking for someone intelligent and diverse with a zest for life.

Type of relationship I'm looking for
Despite the implications of my username, I am actually looking for a relationship not just platonic friends. Ideally, I'm looking for something long-term and exclusive. However, I'm finding that being picky can be pretty exhausting and I'm starting to see the appeal of short term, less serious dating. At the moment (this gets updated frequently), I think I'd like to date a few people not seriously while continuing to look for someone to date exclusively. That's how it works these days, right? (but not casual sex- I have to get to know you before I trust you).
What I’m doing with my life
TL:DR: I'm a grad student + starting a business + training for a marathon + lots of close friends in Seattle I see on a regular basis + salsa dancing + hiking and camping. Crazy busy! And I like it. :)

Long version:
Grad school: Regenerating the pancreas! (to cure diabetes)
Outdoor Adventuring!: Hiking, camping, picnics in Seattle parks
Playing board games (see below for list)
Celebrating holidays: I have an upside-down Easter egg tree!
Creating artwork: Digital photography, painting, building a cat tree made from driftwood...
Decorating myself: Henna, facepaint, wacky hair, costumes... :)
Dancing Swing in the past, salsa & bachata now, intrigued by bollywood and tango (but not clubs, I'm super awkward without structure)
Exercising: Just started a marathon training program! It's intense and a little concerning (in terms of the time commitment)
Baking: I like challenging baking projects (i.e. cakes that look like the American flag on the inside & cupcakes that look like rubber ducks, owls, walruses, and aliens.)
Experimenting with this whole cooking thing
Learning some programming!
Starting a speed-dating business
Taking coursera classes I just signed up for 8 of them... oops?

Less frequent (but not less awesome!) activities:
Paragliding, White water rafting, Flyboarding, Flying a plane, Glassblowing, Jetskiing, Skiing, and Snowmobiling.

I generally pack my schedule so tightly that I really look forward to days that I have nothing to do.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
going on an OKC hiatus... I think I'm too busy for dating at the moment. Please bear with me if it takes me forever to respond to your message.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sometimes I squat on the floor and wrap my hands around my knees. Why? Because that's how I roll! :p

(See "What I'm doing with my life" section)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm getting really tired of first dates. Can we just skip the coffee/tea and cuddle?

Deal-breakers! (Because, let's be honest, those are important)
-smoking REPULSIVE! (sorry, but it is)
-getting drunk often drinking sometimes is okay, I drink sometimes... :)

-regular drug use
-dislike of cats I have one! If you're allergic, that should be okay though, my cat is hypoallergenic!
-less than a college degree (unless you have a good reason). I'm an education snob, yes, but... there's a discrepancy between PhD and high school graduate that is too large for my liking.
-children from a previous relationship I have a kitten. That's my max level of commitment right now
-no interest in a long-term relationship
-living far from Seattle I don't have a car
