My self-summary
I have such a difficult time with this!!

Okay. I am a math/physics geek, as you might have guessed by now, but I am not exclusively interested in math and physics! Believe it or not, I am able to talk about things that don't involve the word "quanta," and which don't need to be proved by induction.*

In fact, I am really fond of music! I often sing with a swing band that tours around the country, these days! I really love to talk about music, despite the fact that I am a complete Neanderthal when it comes to music theory. If you can educate me, be my guest!

I also like to talk about books! I've gone through phases of just reading books of religious import (The Tao Te Ching, The Old Testament, Siddhartha, etc), because I think that stuff is really interesting and fun to learn about! I have also done an examination of WWII/ the Holocaust, a foray into futuristic dystopian societies, an exploration of some modern physical theories, and even a short-lived inquiry into the wonderful world of poetry!

So, I'm sure that we can find something in common, even if you don't know why the application of the "universal homomorphism property" is funny** (and if you'd like to know, I can explain it to you, relatively easily!)

*(This is a rare quality in physics people, I have noticed; in my experience, Astro-Phys kids are more well-adjusted, while my particular subset of interests (theoretical/particle/nuclear) tends to be associated with social ineptitude. On that note: if you like really terrible math and physics jokes, I have a few to share!)
**After explaining this to a few people, I have discovered that this is a perfect demonstration of the relativity of qualifiers such as "funny."
What I’m doing with my life
I just got accepted into my top graduate program choice, and will be attending in the fall! I'm (hopefully) going to be getting a PhD in physics, with a focus on nuclear structure theory.

Since May 2012, I have been living off of gig money from touring with a swing band. If you see me somewhere other than VT/NH, it's probably because I am on a gig!! If you see me in St. Louis, it's probably because I am with a juggler!!
I’m really good at
Singing--I do better in the shower, but, then again: don't we all?
Laughing loudly--In fact, I can't do it any other way!
Listening--It beats coming up with something to say, any day.
My work--I am a kickass tutor! I will learn you some Calc or die trying!

I'm sure there are other things that you or someone else would argue should be added to this list, but I don't want to come off as some kind of egotistical jerk! :P
The first things people usually notice about me
My friend Eric says that I must fill this box with (his words) "your ridiculously loud laugh." People often walk into wherever I am and say, "I knew you were here; I could hear you laughing from [insert relatively distant location here]."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Ender's Game, Siddhartha, The Tao of Pooh, Slaughterhouse-Five, Fahrenheit 451, The Hyperion Cantos, Winnie-the-Pooh, Brave New World, Logicomix, Asterios Polyp, Blankets, All things Terry Pratchett, The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ
Movies: Life is Beautiful, The Machinist, Guys and Dolls, The Princess Bride
Shows: Law&Order: SVU/CI (I know this is trashy of me, but give me a break!), Family Guy, The Cleveland Brown Show, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report (I don't watch anything regularly now, but I did when Keene State supplied me with cable!)
Music: Swing and blues are my tops, but I will listen to almost anything. I won't necessarily like it all, but I am game for giving it the Ol' College Try! I have found tunes that I like in nearly every genre, except for modern pop-country and anything that screams at me. I don't mean that in a derogatory way; I really have tried to like it, but it is so scary!!
Food: Thai, Indian, any kind of fancy pastry (yummy and pretty!). I find that my diet consists overwhelmingly of veggies and dairy, which has nothing to do with any kind of moral dilemma and everything to do with taste.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I think about people and human interactions most, these days. I sometimes think about physics, and I am sure I will think about it a lot more, soon. I occasionally think about how scary future plans are, and how scary making plans/commitments, generally is.

I also like to have conversations with people who know far more about a topic than I--I think it is the best way to learn about something. I am not passive, though--I will ask questions, not all of which are superficial! Consider this fair warning :)

Billy Collins:
"...We are all so foolish,
my long bebop solo begins by saying,
so damn foolish
we have become beautiful without even knowing it. "
(It's called Litany - go read it!)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Okay, so I am superficially a dog person, and I love dogs a lot.

Secretly, I also like cats, but few people ever see me express interest in cats, because it makes me feel like I am somehow betraying all dogs, ever.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 20–40
  • Located anywhere
  • For new friends
You should message me if
you have some interesting thoughts to share. I'm going to be honest: unless you send me a message that really has me interested in talking to you as a human being, I am probably not going to respond. I don't want to be blunt, and I'm not trying to be mean - I just don't have the time/energy/interest in exchanging messages unless you give me something to work with.

I'm very happily dating a wonderful boy that I love very much, so I am not interested in any romantic relationships. I do love a good chat, though!
