I'm trying to find the word that describes me.. and.. I'd have to say eclectic.
Yeah. Eclectic is a good word. I like going out and doing exciting things (just went paragliding), and never miss the chance to travel or do insane things (the sport of Skeleton, anyone?). I've dipped my toes into several academic fields and hobbies and I am generally just a curious person.
Brains are fascinating and I'm really interested in the intersection between what makes us human and the biology that does so. If you know anything about neuroscience, I'm hoping to study embryology/development of the nervous system. But I guess evodevo biology would be super cool, too.
I also love to photograph aesthetically pleasing things like people and architecture as well as draw, and I worked at my school paper as a designer. Art and science make me happy.
I do photography and freelance graphic design/illustration for extra cash.
All-time favorite shows I will (and have) watch repeatedly: Scrubs, Firefly.
Favorite authors: Ursula K. Le Guin, Orson Scott Card, Robert Heinlein, Matt Ridley, Mary Roach.
Music: I usually listen to electronic music (GRiZ, M Machine, Liquid Stranger) or indie stuff (GEMS, Chet Faker, Sevdaliza, FKA Twigs, SBTRKT, Pomo). Also been known to listen to from everything from Stevie Wonder to Metallica to Madonna to Bowie, so it really just depends on my mood.
Food? Literally anything except some types of fish.
And cats (mine are now sadly thousands of miles away, so if you have a cat, you have an exponentially greater chance of me wanting to hang out with you).
Can I just have 7?
Stuff about brains, stuff about whether or not we absorb calories from our own saliva, stuff about how people become contortionists, stuff about bonobos, etc.
As a side note, I appreciate messages that are more interesting, so feel free to dazzle me with your huge.. intellect.
