Hi and thanks for visiting my profile! I figure the rest of this
page covers a lot, so I’ll give you the bottom line: I’m an
easy-going / low-key person who has more hobbies than I can count,
with slightly nerdy tendencies... =) I'm not a clubber or party
animal, but prefer to hang out with family and friends, travel,
hike/camp, play cards and board games, etc instead. I think life’s
meant to be simple and fun, so I try as much as possible to keep to
What I’m doing with my life
Career-wise, I'm a pharmacist who works in drug safety. I consider
myself very lucky in that I had the flexibility and opportunity to
find a job that I absolutely love!
Non-career-wise, I'm figuring out my place in the world and how I
can contribute to it. Meeting people and seeing different
perspectives is a big part of the process.
I’m really good at
I don't know if I'm really good at it, but I love cooking (anything
veggie)! Given that "the way to a guy's heart is his stomach," I
thought I'd link my blog (http://edgyveggiebytes.wordpress.com
Just think, if we hit it off, you could be a guinea pig... =)
I also love anything art-related (photography, painting, cake
decorating, jewelry making, etc.), but these are completely subject
to my inspiration and mood at a given time.
The first things people usually notice about me
I thought the logical thing to do for this section is to ask people
I know... Unanimously, they said that I love laughing (more often
than not, followed by "we can usually hear you laugh before we see
you"). After all, life’s meant to be enjoyed! =)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: HARRY POTTER!!!!! =) Never too old for kids books! I'm a
HUGE fan of Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Phillip Pullman, John
Grisham, Sidney Sheldon, Enid Blyton, mysteries, pretty much
anything fiction (I think of reading as an escape).
Movies: 100% mood dependent (except scary movies, which I will
never voluntarily watch)
TV Shows: Glee, Big Bang Theory, Psych, Daily Show, Castle,
M*A*S*H, House, Lie to Me, Cosby, Full House, Friends, South Park,
Music: Hindi songs, Soft rock and Rock, Lifehouse, Cold play,
Maroon 5, whatever is on the radio (yes, I still listen to the
radio and do not own an mp3 player or anything like it!)
Food: anything veggie!
The six things I could never do without
Family and friends, a kitchen, my camera, books, chocolate!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything... brains are just like the rest of us, and need regular
exercise! Always up for a good, thoughtful conversation, especially
if we have differing points of view.
More recently, I've spent a lot of time thinking about how to
create/tweak new recipes for my blog! =)
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing whatever seems interesting... hanging out in coffee shops,
reading a book, watching a movie, doing some art stuff or baking,
playing games/cards/etc with friends/family...
Essentially, I'm up for anything as long as it's good company!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You'll have to meet me to find out! =)
You should message me if
you can laugh at life (and yourself), are slightly (or more than
slightly) nerdy, and are passionate about something!
