My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've never felt comfortable about filling up these self-summary thingies (how much should I divulge?). But I've procrastinated enough, so here....

I have a diverse set of interests (like most normal people, presumably; probably too many to list here), but science and tech geekery ranks really high on my list. Remember that cliche saying: "curiosity killed the cat"? Well thank God I'm not a cat, or I'd be dead. It's probably fair to say that I have a high respect for intellectual curiosity in general. Intellectual laziness is a big turn off for me; i.e. not bothering to find out something that you should know but don't (and you realize you don't)... this is probably an overbroad definition, but still you get the drift =]

I am quite a mellow person. It takes a lot to get me riled up and angry. Exceptions: bigotry, customer support hotlines, name-droppers, and holier-than-thou attitudes. I like running and biking but don't do much sports besides. Nature is awesome. My vacation destinations are often state / national parks or places with natural attractions as opposed to cities. I can be klutzy and forgetful about the small mundane things, but this is where family, friends, and my smartphone "reminder" feature swoops in to the rescue!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
By day, I work as a research analyst and software engineer for a pharma. By night, I go back to being a physicist. I left academia 2 years ago because the funding mechanism and pressure to publish was as stifling to original thought as simply being told what to do by a boss. Industry pays wayyy more than grad student stipend (duh!) so I guess the choice was obvious. I am seriously contemplating going back to finish up a doctorate in the near future though, perhaps in a different school in a different country. Physics is where my real passion and interest is.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being a helpful friend. I tend to be willing to go out of my way to offer help to friends / family / acquaintances if and when they need it and if it is within my powers. This is most definitely not a unique trait, I'm sure. But over the years, only a few had reciprocated... just saying.

I'm crap at "right-brained" stuff but pretty competent at "left-brained" stuff. That being said, there's fairly recent research with MRI showing that the distinction between left vs right-brained tasks is not as clear cut as we'd like to think. :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Either that I appear to be very shy or that I am really talkative. It's neither (or both), depending on the company around me. As a rule, I don't speak much on things about which I know little. Better to keep one's mouth shut and let others suspect one is a fool than to speak and leave others in no doubt at all!

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- computer with an internet connection
- shelter, food, clothes (banal, but true; these are absolute essentials)
- car (only because I live in Indy where a decent public transportation system is non-existent)
- friends
- my piano
- national / state parks
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Interesting problems.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Curling up on my couch with a decent beverage, a snack, and a good book, a great movie, or a SC2 match. If you understood the StarCraft reference, great! My Battle.net ID is ETlulz. I don't play much and am a pretty crap bronze leaguer but I love watching matches. It's a shame Indy hasn't got much of a BarCraft scene.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have an inexplicable tendency to roll off the bed while sleeping, often with the end result being a fall and a nasty jolt. Yep, go ahead... mock the man who doesn't know how to sleep without hurting himself :)
