My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm from a small town. I moved to Austin about two years ago to go to graduate school for chemistry. I'm enjoying the experience of living in a bigger city with a greater variety of people to meet and things to do. I'm a work in progress. Among my more annoying habits that I'm trying to quell is the tendency to cut myself off from finishing one idea and abruptly transition to another. Sometimes I get back to the main point, and sometimes I just forget. For this reason, I'm looking for a patient, tolerant person.

I don't like to add to that pressure by being extremely judgmental about how we spend our time.
