I work long hours in a lab as a grad student and I wouldn't be a scientist if I weren't constantly looking to have my mind blown by some new insight about the universe or by the stories of the lives of people around me. This probably explains my skeptical worldview. Who needs magic when fact and human experience are so often stranger than fiction?
I am hard to offend and don't consider too many things to be sacred. For me an educated irreverence is a better sign of maturity than learned propriety.
Looking for someone who agrees that new experiences are the currency of life and will join me in accruing them. Someone who doesn't shy away from thinking and discussing "the big questions" of life, understands the various stresses of being in gradschool/academia, shares my love of books and radio, and is working towards some important goal in life, whatever that may be.
