I'm an academically driven 18-year-old guy who will likely pursue a
career in research. Physics and math are my academic
In my free time, I play piano and video games; I read books
(scientific and fantasy mostly.)
What I’m doing with my life
I'm finishing high school and will be heading off (barring
unforseen events) to a high-tech school to study physics.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at math & science; additionally these are my
passions. I am also moderately good at playing the piano, although
I can't read sheet music worth a darn. I can play Nuvole Bianche,
Comptine d'un autre ete, Time (from Inception), and am working on
Bloody Tears (from Castlevania).
The first things people usually notice about me
I am tall, have long hair (for a guy, it's in a ponytail) and I
have pronounced eyebrows. I have a tendency to speak quickly (as in
words per minute, not lack of forethought.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Lord of the Rings, Godel Escher Bach, A Song of Fire and
Movies: Lord of the Rings, anything by Mel Brooks, the Pink
Panther, all the Monty Python movies (Holy Grail and Life of Brian
more so than Meaning of Life)
Shows: Monty Python, Futurama, Doctor Who.
Music: Anything by Ludovico Einaudi, various movie soundtracks, a
lot of music that I am forgetting.
Food: Mexican and Italian food are my favorites.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about physics; I often come up with
interesting situations and problems in my head and devote time to
finding the solution.
I also spend a lot of time thinking about what it would be like to
have different superpowers, or to take over the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
If I am at home, which I usually am, I am doing a mix of studying,
reading, playing games, and playing piano.
If I'm at a friend's house I am doing the same, minus the studying
and with more games than piano.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a slight concave ribcage. Few people I know know that.
You should message me if
You understand why e^(pi*i) = -1
You should message me if you think that I would be the kind of
person with whom you would both get along and enjoy spending time.
