Does your idea of a perfect first date involve climbing trees at midnight, finding the strangest restaurant in the darkest corner of the city and ordering the weirdest item, competing throughout the evening to see which of us can make the other laugh more often, and arguing passionately about who would win in a science-off? Then congratulations, you have found me at last.
In spite of studying my brains out to get ready for medical school, I strive to find moments of play like this. My relaxed demeanor may mislead you, though; personal sincerity and integrity is my highest-held value. Consequently, I am a feminist and believe that everyone should be treated with respect.
I am also learning not to take myself too seriously. For instance, I am not without a supreme sense of humor about the fact that I appear to be a quintessential hipster from my outward appearance, but in my defense I'm a sincere believer that wearing a dinosaur button-down shirt or a bow tie has the magical effect of drawing exactly the kind of intelligent, nerdy, quirky kind of people into my presence that I enjoy (and repelling the sort that I don't.) Besides, bow ties are cool.
