My name is Chris, I'm a 29 year old graduate student, working on my PhD. I'm originally from Texas and moved here to the Durham area for school.
I generally am pretty easy going and have a somewhat eccentric personality at times. I spend a lot of my spare time these days playing intramurals with other Econ students but am always looking to branch out and meet new people. For the most part, I enjoy spending time with friends and am of the opinion it doesn't really matter so much what you do but more who you're spending the time with.
What I’m doing with my life
Right now I'm working on my Ph.D in Economics, after that I look to
be gainfully employed. Also playing intramurals and doing trivia as
much as possible to keep myself sane.
I’m really good at
Cracking wise, I'm told Trivia, Mario Kart on the Wii (but not
usually with the steering wheel that thing is so imprecise!),
making chocolate truffles and pound cakes.
The first things people usually notice about me
One friend said my calm demeanor. I'm a pretty quiet guy at first
but once you get to know me you'll find I can be kind of goofy in
what I firmly believe is an endearing way.
