My self-summary
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.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite books include Catch 22, Crime and Punishment, Les Miserables, L'etrangere, Le Petit Prince, Ender's Game, the Hunger Games series, as well as Game of Thrones, definitely enjoy some sci/fi fantasy things but I don't go too overboard.

My Favorite movies include, The Dark Knight, Sean of the Dead, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Inception, Lord of the Rings, The Avengers, Shawshank Redemption

Favorite Shows at the moment are Arrested Development, Firefly, The Colbert Report, The Daily Show, Modern Family, Breaking Bad, Grimm, Parks and Rec, The Walking Dead, Bob's Burgers (Huge fan of Louise)

Favorite Music: Honestly I'm not picky about music I like just about anything, my friend described my playlist as very random.

Favorite Food: I like food in general if I had to pick a genre it would probably be Thai

Usually out with my friends in the program, or if not that relaxing at home either watching a show with my roommate or reading a book.
