Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Is there anything worse than a blank page? I mean, besides famine,
pestilence, etc... Okay, so maybe it's not so bad.
I'm a grad student/mad scientist/professional internet browser.
You'd be surprised how often you can dick around on the internet
while you're pursuing a graduate degree. Then again, it makes life
much more difficult when you have to get work done, so I try to
stay off as much as possible. So at any given time, I'm in between
writing, journal reading, lab work, and Cracked.com. Also, if you
visit my office, you can typically hear me ask my co-worker: "What
are we going to do tonight, Brain?"
Outside of work, I'm either blinking into the blinding light trying
to figure out how long I've been sitting at my work computer, or
trying to stay active. Soccer, softball, kickball, hiking,
swimming, biking...really anything to give me an excuse to get
outside. Careful though, if you leave me outside too long (ie 20
min) I turn lobster red and burn up. Also, when I'm not
activity-ing, I'm trying to recover from the damage that BBC
television has done to me and of course going back for more. I
should probably come with a warning label...
What about you? Do you like baseball? Beer? Having adventures and
trying to take over the world? Then probably you should give it a
shot and shoot me a message. I also do like to develop new
friendships, so if you have any interest in getting out doors or
trying something new, let me know :D
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm into my fifth year of a chemistry PhD program at the University
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Fitting in small spaces (most convenient- airplane seats).
Baking and cooking in general- kinda like chemistry but you can
lick the spoon.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've got "cute" down really well.
And if you meet me while I'm drinking, you'll probably notice a
slight napoleon complex complete with me challenging guys twice my
size to fight.
Also, it's a toss-up as to whether or not people take me seriously.
Either they find me very intimidating, or assume there's very
little between my ears. Weird, but whatever.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1- good food
2- great friends
3- exercise/sports in the sun (small doses, see above)
4- my car, Brian. Most successful relationship I've ever had
5- my ipod and/or radio
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why does men's deodorant work so much better than women's?
What kind of cereal would I eat the rest of my life?
When will I actually be able to get a dog?
How do tall people see the world?
Is there anyone that actually enjoys a DMV visit?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either having a chill-at-home night or hanging out with friends. I
tend to prefer small group settings over huge parties- maybe that's
why I didn't go out so much in undergrad
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have to chew food evenly on either side of my mouth. I didn't
think anyone else even thought about it but discovered my sister
does the same thing a couple years ago. Oddity must run in the
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think we might hit it off. Honestly, the worst thing that can
happen is it doesn't work out, right? And then no biggie, we say
"that was fun, but this isn't it for us." Part as friends :D
Also, we probably won't get along if you are incapable of choosing
between they're, there, and their. Or you don't know what an oxford
comma is. Or if you don't value education in general.
