I’m a Rutgers grad, and majored in Psychology and English while there. I’m not doing much with the English side, but I love working in the psych field, and will eventually be applying to different Psy.D programs. I've still got a lot of work to do for that, but I’m really excited about beginning that stage of my life; it’s the only path where I don’t feel any doubts about what I’m doing. I’m still making preparations for that though, so I’m just trying to enjoy what I’m doing and grow as a person in the meantime.
Work takes up a lot of my time, and I really like my job, but apparently there’s a whole other section where I’m supposed talk about that, so I’ll get to it later. Other than that, I do a lot of exercise stuff (not in gyms when I can avoid it though, I’m not really a fan of them). I really love exploring new places whenever I can. I definitely gravitate more towards nature stuff I guess, but I’m open to other things too. I really just like a peaceful atmosphere and connecting with good people.
I like talking to people, but I’m pretty quiet a lot of the time too. I can be comfortable with either, and like to be around others who feel the same. I really like listening to other people’s stories, and being heard in return. I admire anyone who can be open and self-aware of themselves. I try my best to do that too, though it is a work in progress (I guess that’s kind of true for everyone though).
Re-reading and editing this profile just now has made me realize what a different space I’m in from when I first wrote it. To be honest, between my work and grad school stuff, I don’t have the time or emotional energy to become immersed in a full-time relationship just now. I feel like it’s best if I just stick to connecting with others and maybe even making some new friends. Casual dating could be fun too (I never really tried it). These strange post-grad years have really made me appreciate how nice a good conversation with someone can be, as it doesn't always come around often. I’d like to have some more of them.
Just as a note, I’m pretty bad at keeping up with sites like this. I lose track of responses and just miss them a lot of the time. If I don’t respond right away, don’t take it personally at all, it’s on me.
