My friend suggested I describe myself as "...a visionary who dwells
in an ivory tower and likes to look at brains. I have baby-soft
thighs." I am not sure where the baby-soft thighs bit comes from
but I think he's jealous.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a grad student in psychology/neuroscience. I'm often
interested in applied work on the clinical/psychiatry side of
I’m really good at
Being a zombie. And making fancy animations in keynote/powerpoint.
Lots of oohs and ahhs are had when prompted.
The first things people usually notice about me
I bought these glasses that seem to have a logo in the shape of New
Jersey on the side (didn't realize this at the time). Anyway, so
this is a recurrent comment.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Listened to the audiobook for Snow Crash recently. It was
good but more importantly it had the best narrator I have heard
yet. Besides that liked Enders Game, Harry Potter, The Lucifer
Effect, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, etc.
Movies: CRAZY (a neat quebec film). Recently watched don jon, the
intouchables, and Django unchained.
Music. Like the XX, Kyte, Grimes, Muse, and AR Rahman.
TV: I like too many things to list. Just to name a few BSG, Parks
and Rec, the Daily Show, House of Cards, and Game of Thrones (read
most of the books too). I recently watched Orange is the New Black
and need to catch up on the now finished craze of Breaking Bad.
The six things I could never do without
Family, close friends, my thoughts/ideas, my computer, music (aka
pandora/spotify/songza), and a sixth thing that shall remain a
mystery even from myself.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Having my consciousness jump back in time to re-live different
parts of my life. I assume that I would have a limited amount of
jumps, so long amounts of time are spent deciding which moments to
More seriously: my research, societal problems, how to apply
science and technology to resolve societal problems (so many cool
things on this front), philosophy/religion, how to be a better /
more productive person, and how to stop thinking too much about
On a typical Friday night I am
With friends discussing ways to change the world.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like this line from the movie The Book of Eli (the movie possibly
wasn't that great), which is "do more for others than you do for
yourself". I liked this line and think it should be a platinum rule
(above the golden rule).
You should message me if
