My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My friends like to joke that I'm a New Yorker at heart even though I've lived in like 6 different places at this point. (It's true, I do love that buzz of living in the big city - it's like at any given moment you always feel like you've just had a cup of coffee a few minutes before.)

I'm doing my residency in psychiatry - so close to being done with licensing exams - and in a couple of years I'll be able to get a real job with regular hours! Honestly though, I don't mind working a different rotation each month with demanding schedules. (Right now I'm working 12+ hour days doing my ER rotation, 2 days on, 2 days off. It's pretty awesome once you get the hang of it!) Those 2 days off are golden and give me time to work out, go for a hike and just chill out.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
By day I'm becoming a psychiatrist (slowly). During my down time I'm surfing (though the last time I've surfed regularly was about a decade ago) and generally staying fit (I dabble in mixed martial arts).

I also love how much fun my group of fellow residents is - we get together and play board games once a week, and we also get out and explore new restaurants, lounges and stuff.

I could still use a recommendation or two since I've only been here for a few weeks. What's your favorite place to grab a bite or get a drink? :-)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Multiplying numbers in my head (no autographs, please).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I remember reading those for fun back before I decided to become a doctor! :-) I remember LOVING The Phantom Tollbooth when I was a kid. And then there was this long period when all I read were medical books for school/residency. Nowadays I've been reading stuff that is decidedly more zen - The Way of the Peaceful Warrior and the Tao Te Ching - in between the odd medical journal.

Movies: I usually never remember when someone asks me point blank, but if I can just consult this handy reference... I really enjoyed Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Ex Machina (despite the creepier aspects), Alien, and I loved Frances Ha (who wouldn't love a fairy tale about hipsters in New York?). Limitless was a blast, and so was I Am Legend, and I couldn't stop laughing during Inherent Vice. :-)

Shows: Honestly, I rarely watch tv, but if I had to name a show it would be Archer. I used to watch the Simpsons religiously, but they had more stamina in making that show then I had in tuning in!

Music: I actually listen to a lot of classical music including "modern classical" (if that exists), like Steve Reich. Bach is always an option. And I really like Boards of Canada (EDM) and Medeski Martin and Wood (jazz/funk).

Food: I'm a sucker for diverse and unexpected food options (Cuban-Chinese?), and who can say no to fried chicken!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Variety! When I lived in NYC I belonged to this crazy-huge (epic really) gym in Chelsea that had literally everything. I did some boxing, Krav Maga, yoga, rock climbing, pretty much anything you could think of because it was there and I was curious. (I get antsy with the same old routine. Maybe this is why I can handle the ER better than most residents!)

Seasons. So far Honolulu has always been 85 degrees which is pleasant for sure, but I miss autumn and the smell of burning leaves. It's probably more psychological than anything else, since autumn always held the promise of a new school year which meant meeting a whole new group of people to get to know.

Which brings us to friendship, I guess? :-)

There's this app on my phone called Medscape (Doctors only, sorry!) that is ridiculously helpful for looking up detailed medical info like drug dosages, side effects, etc. (Beats carrying around a stack of textbooks!)

Comfort food. I'm a sucker for anything fried (shameful to admit, especially coming from a physician). It's a good thing I work out...

Including pullups - in many ways, the perfect exercise.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What's going on in the world. I read Google News every morning, and I still find myself reading local news of stuff going on in NYC. I read a lot of financial news too (I'm a personal finance geek, if such a thing exists).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Given that I could be working in the ER or lounging at a barbecue on any given Friday night, there is no typical Friday. If the question is "How do you spend your free time?" it would probably involve discovering a brand new cuisine and hanging out somewhere where my friends and I don't have to yell at each other in order to be heard. :-)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-You can tell me about a delicious new restaurant I have to try!

-You know a cool spot where I can re-learn to surf (away from the crowds).

-You find it more charming than dorky that I have two tattoos... of physics equations. ;-)
