I have a sarcastic, self-deprecating sense of humor. I love making fun of my eyebrows (I feel like they're quite substantial) and my skinny legs (which are the opposite of quite substantial). I think it's important to be able to laugh at yourself.
I try to be open-minded. I definitely see the world in shades of gray rather than black and white, and I think that extremism (in either the liberal or conservative direction) impedes progress. I try to be respectful of other people's beliefs, and I hope for that respect in return. So feel free to message me even you think our values are diametrically opposed. I'm sure we have something in common, and I'm sure I could learn something from you.
I'm up for anything that results in a good time and/or a cool story. If that means going to a dive bar and playing pool with old men who have more fingers than teeth, awesome. If it means taking a limo to a club and dancing to EDM, that's great too. Anything can be fun if you're with the right people and you have a good attitude.
I define success by the quality of the friends around me and by how much I've grown as a person. It's not that I don't care about a career and whatnot (I do care, and I'm working hard to become a professor). I just won't ever be one of those people who misses a ballet recital because of work.
