When I have time and am in the mood I love to draw - mostly colored pencil portraits. I'm not great, but I find it relaxing and try to improve with each new drawing. I also have started drawing little cartoon versions of the cells I study in lab.
I also, like everyone else it seems, got a DSLR a couple years back and enjoy taking pictures. I like to hang around a party with it until people finally forget that I'm taking pictures, at which point I'm able to capture some nice candid shots. I love to capture a great natural expression on someone's face. No posing please.
I would say that my defining personal characteristics are that I'm kind, caring, understanding, non-judgemental, and extremely patient.
Also, I'm not really into sports, and by that I mean I often forget that sports are a thing. I know that for many people sports are a big part of their social life, so I feel somewhat obligated to add this disclaimer.
