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 if 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.
