hi there. people write all sorts of stuff here but I think it works best when I tell you a little bit, and leave a little bit for you to find out. so. I love to live; I love running and hiking and the outdoors and traveling and poems and social psychology and science and nerd outs and live music.
I'm a fourth year medical student and spending the year in all sorts of places; Maine, CA, Argentina, Colorado, Nepal - but I've lived in Portland for the last 1.5 years and consider it my home base.
My thing is only that you, dear reader, are equally passionate about your life. It doesn't have to nearly match what I've said here, only that you also have a zest to get after what life has to offer, you know what you want, and you go after it.
What I’m doing with my life
living. running, hiking, pickup soccer/football, potlucks, live music, craft beer, marathons, triathlons, you name it. I also yoga in unicorn pants. Because reasons.
I’m really good at
coming up with awesome adventure ideas and getting you on board to do them with me.
The first things people usually notice about me
Actually people often don't notice that I'm only five feet tall.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot of social psychology and nonfiction; so books in the genre of Atul Gawande or Malcom Gladwell peak my interest. but don't worry- I've read Harry Potter and GOT; His Dark Materials will always have my heart. *If you're on this site and you haven't read Aziz Ansari's Modern Romance, stop everything and read it. Are you still reading?!? Have you learned nothing?!?
music: in the likeness of The Head and The Heart, the oh hello's, the Lone Bellows. Basically folk.
Shows: can I just say all of Netflix?
The six things I could never do without
Car. for adventures.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
can I do a great job at work and learn lots of stuff AND have the most fun possible all the time?
how can I turn every vacation into the most ridiculous international or woodsy trip ever?
how will I combine this with a Netflix binge?
On a typical Friday night I am
there is no typical night ever, but probably one or more of the
following: dancing, drinking beers, up north wearing flannel,
eating delicious food.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I almost never wear makeup and I've never worn heels. Oh, I really love Jason Mraz. Actually, that's not a secret. Well now you know.
You should message me if
you are down for adventures of all sorts, you like live music, and you grab opportunity. You've figured out what you want in life and you're ready to go for it. Or if this is what you're looking for: http://xkcd.com/150
...or just if you have gifs of puppies.
