* Update: I graduated school, and am now working as a general
dentist. I still get crazy hair sometimes, but mostly it happens
while I ponder over the long notes I have to write between each
I am a full-time graduate student, which means--during the week--I
can often be found buried up to my elbows in books in some corner
of a library, bearing a disheveled look and slightly crazy hair
(yes--I am a fidgety studier). In my free time, I have many
interests, from reading and writing, to expending some of my excess
energy through sports (soccer!) and outdoor activities. I love
learning about different cultures, traveling, and exploring new
interests, and hope to find someone who can say the same.
Ultimately, I'd like to find someone I can have a long-term,
meaningful relationship with.
What I’m doing with my life
Finishing off school, then on to my career.
I’m really good at
Writing, believe it or not, when I have my rare moments of
creativity. I'm also pretty open-minded, and a good listener. And,
while I love most sports, I can't say I'm very good at them--but
I've got a competitive spirit that usually gets me through most
things ok. That being said--don't worry, I'm usually a good sport.
The first things people usually notice about me
They probably see me frowning, and think I'm contemplating
something serious--when I'm most likely just daydreaming. Beyond
that solemn look and slightly ironic sense of humor, I honestly
care about people--and that's what I'd like to think my friends
notice about me most.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, the Hunger Games, the Heir
trilogy, The Da Vinci Code, and many, many more. I love
recommendations in whatever genre, but I'm partial to
fantasy/science fiction. I like all types of music--but the kind I
can dance to stands above all rest. I love spicy food, and I've
recently discovered just how much Indian food challenges my taste
The six things I could never do without
My family and friends
Sunlight (and so I wither away in winter...)
Toothbrush and floss
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Traveling. There are so many countries I'd like to visit and even
live in for a while. I hope to hit all continents one day, even if
I have to brave the cold in Antarctica for a while.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having dinner with friends, watching a new movie or kicking back
with a good book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
What can I say, I'm a private person. Ask me this question later.
You should message me if
...you think we're a good match! I'd like to date with the
intention of eventually entering a serious relationship. Oh, and
please honor me with your humor! Laughing much and often really is
the way I'd like to spend my life.
