I'm a linguist, a traveler, and an academic. I love all things
social and cultural. I'm outgoing but also enjoy introverted or
laid-back activities, such as movies or reading or goofing off. All
in all, I consider myself to have a healthy balance of me- and
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a Ph.D. student in Hispanic Linguistics, so my life might be more consumed by work than I would like, but I still make time for friends and trips. I plan on becoming a professor and researcher, and I hope I accomplish my goal starting with IU. We'll see!
I’m really good at
languages, writing (at least sufficiently well), and having fun.
The first things people usually notice about me
how sociable I can be. However, I do have a shy side. It goes away as soon as a single connection with a person in the room is made, so first dates can be somewhat fifty-fifty. I like talking, but I prefer a guy who can keep up his end of the conversation, too. Showing interest in someone besides yourself is also important. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love a lot of books, movies, music, and food. I really prefer for
you to talk to me and find them out. This sort of question takes
the fun out of a good conversation.

2. My cat
3. A wardrobe that makes me feel good about myself
4. Traveling on a monthly or bi-monthly basis
5. Speaking another language daily
6. Working towards a goal
(And, of course, friends and family - but that one's obvious!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my future. It's what motivates me. I've got the career goals in motion. Other goals, however, need some work (i.e., dating).
On a typical Friday night I am
reading a little bit, watching a movie or a show on Netflix, and
then going over to a friend's house or out to a restaurant/club.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that you need to ask me yourself.
You should message me if
You should message me if you're interested in conversation about
all things under the sun, could potentially meet me in the
near-to-distant future, etc. I'm really upfront about everything. I
expect the same. No matter what, though, I'm looking for
friendships... or more.
