I never know what to say here. I have been living in Arlington for over five years. I spent about five years in Europe (most of that time was in Germany but I also spent some summers in Italy). My work involves economics and statistical modeling. I enjoy applying the skills I learned in college and learning new skills.
I like meeting new people, especially those with different backgrounds from me. I like having conversations about politics and current events. I spend a lot of time doing professional reading (about math, economics etc.) and when I read for enjoyment, I try to read something in German.
I work out a lot: I weight lift three to four times per week and jog on a regular basis.
What I’m doing with my life
I spent all of August in Germany. I also just transferred
departments at work. My works involves statistical modeling (with
cross-sectional, time series and panel data) to estimate costs.
I’m really good at
working hard, economics, math and foreign languages.

On typical Friday, I like to work out in the gym, have a nice
dinner and then go out to hear some music and meet people.

I don't like beer. I do drink, I just don't like the taste of beer,
even German beer.
One point: I believe this question was put here to help people
start conversations. People seem to take it so seriously. Write
