My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in the Midwest,* and I moved out to California in 2009. I've been told I'm more polite and sweet than most guys. Whether or not that has to do with growing up in a small town, I don't know. I really enjoy doing outdoorsy stuff like hiking and bouldering at Joshua Tree NP, but sometimes I also like just sitting around and watching movies.

*Here, "Midwest" means South Dakota, and since I've been asked (not even kidding), no, we didn't ride horses to school.**

I'm on here to meet people who I otherwise might not get to know. Offline, you'll meet lots of different people, but learn very little about them. On here, we can find people who have something in common with us and with whom we might actually like to talk. The way I see it, (almost) everyone on here exists in real life. So if you're in the area, there's chance we could meet in real life on accident. Sites like this just give us a head start for finding people we might like. So if you found your way to my profile, there's already a better than average chance we'd get along. Read on and if you like what there is, send me a message!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently doing graduate work in biology at UC Riverside. Basically, my research is looking at how microbes in the soil can impact greenhouse gas levels in the atmosphere. I like the work and I can talk about it for hours (luckily, since I literally have to do that), so I'm purposely keeping it brief here. I love to talk science, so if you're just interested in the research itself, let me know and I'd be more than happy to talk about it!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Problem-solving (which comes in handy both in science and in life), cooking, and mixing/inventing new drinks. I'm also pretty musically inclined. I've been playing music of some kind since I was 5, and I've been playing the flute since 5th grade. I also started teaching myself guitar about 8 years ago, but that's mostly just for my own fun. I've lost touch with it all a bit recently, but I still try to play every now and then.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(While I know these aren't things without which my existence would end, I figure I'll take the question in the spirit it's intended. :P )

~ My family and friends
~ Humor, especially nerdy humor
~ Music
~ Books
~ The Internet
~ Everything on this list twice (including this)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Life, the future, science, whatever work of fiction I'm currently enthralled with, whatever just happened ten minutes ago...I actually spend a lot of time thinking in general.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Depends on my school/research schedule, but mostly I might be going out for dinner, a movie, and/or drinks. Or when my friends and I have the time and inclination, going out to Joshua Tree and scaling random large rock formations. (It's a lot of fun, we just drive until we see something cool, park, and climb to the top, lol. A little tougher in the middle of summer because the rocks burn your hands, but most of the rest of the time, it's great.)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You meet at least two of the following:
-- You want to go out for coffee/drinks/dinner/etc.
-- You believe that smart = good
-- You want a tennis/other sport/workout buddy
-- You want to climb stuff in Joshua Tree (or go on other random adventures)
-- You want to go to Mars with me
-- You feel like it. Seriously, don't be shy. :)
-- You enjoy these comics (double points if you've read them before!):

P.S. I've talked to more than a couple girls on here who have said that sometimes they don't reply to some messages because they feel it's been too long and it would be awkward. If this is you, try not to worry about awkward...if I wrote to you, it's because I read your profile and liked you. "Better-late-than-never" definitely applies. :)
