Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'd say I'm never really sure what to put here, but everybody says
I'm a geek; no getting around that. As soon as you file your
application for a PhD program, your Geek card arrives in the mail.
And I like the usual geeky things - science fiction books and
movies, video games, all that.
I've got a situational sense of humor. Total smartass.
I am impetuous, funny, and bookish
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now, I'm pursuing my PhD in Epidemiology. I like the student
life, most of the time. It keeps me busy and gives me a varied
enough set of things to do to keep from burning out.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Ok, that was just a little bit snarky. Besides the obvious (being a
good student/academic), I'm a good listener, a troubleshooter, a
fairly good pasta cook, able to converse on most things, and
especially being a smartass.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Too many to count.
Movies: I cannot honestly say I have any particular favorite. My
movie collection is rather pathetic, but I don't really have
anything I can watch over and over.
Music? I grew up on classic grunge rock, but I'm branching out. My
music taste really depends on mood; if I'm driving or working on a
problem, then I need music with a fast tempo and a good drum line.
If I'm relaxing, trying to sleep or just chilling, then something
slower, with acoustic guitar and sometimes no lyrics.
Foods? I know fish are good for me, but I'm just not a fan.
Otherwise, I'm pretty much game. I'm becoming a good pasta cook and
eat a lot of salads, but usually have to eat out to get anything
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) The written word. I'm having a torrid affair with the English
2) Music. I'm one of those weird people who just cannot concentrate
if there isn't something on in the background. If I'm without a
radio or my iPod and I'm trying to work, I get antsy. I just wish
they'd let me listen to music on tests.
3) My friends. Cliché, I know - but no man is an island.
4) Sleep. Especially when curled up in sunlight coming in the
windows about 10AM.
5) My car. I like to drive, especially fast and around corners.
Preferably not past police cruisers.
6) Webcomics. I'm hooked on something like six different
I spend a lot of time thinking about

not having a typical Friday night! Some days I'm out with friends
chilling at the bar or just plain goofing off; others I am out on
my own. Sometimes I'm doing absolutely nothing, and loving it. And
at the end of the quarter, I might be thinking about school.
