My self-summary
I grew up in a small town in the northeast, moved to New Orleans when I was 22, and evacuated to Austin after hurricane Katrina. I recently received a PhD in molecular biology at UT Austin. Now I read and write science papers all day for my job. It's pretty cool. I make my own hours and read a lot of clinical papers, so I think I'm going to become a "freelance surgeon" as a hobby ;)
I love science, animals, art (I like to paint and sketch), keeping physically fit, traveling, and new experiences.
Someone at the gym described me as "a librarian looking girl with tattoos and a really calm personality." haha! I had just finished working though. I'm very mellow, but definitely not always. I go to see rock shows around town and dress up, I suppose that is a hobby of mine, watching people play loud rock music :) By the way, I love SLAYER. You will score extra points if you like them.
My nickname is "cupcake" by my friends, I think because I'm sweet and colorful. I also love baking cupcakes. But I'm gonna be honest, I basically suck at cooking otherwise. Except manicotti, that is the one thing I can make.
I think life's too short, and I try not to take it too seriously. I like to laugh, and be playful, look fear in the face, seize the day :)
I come from a big family, so being family-oriented is important to me. I have 4 sisters and 2 brothers. They mean the world to me. I am the oldest of them. My youngest brother is 13.
What I’m doing with my life
see above
I’m really good at
teaching, pencil sketches, loving animals, baking cupcakes, writing
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My absolute favorite song is Little Wings by Jimi Hendrix. I like a lot of different types of music, but my favorite to see live is by far metal. My favorite band I've seen live is Slayer and also Megadeth (that show in San Antonio where they played the entire Seasons of the Abyss and Peace Sells album was the besttttt). I also love PJ Harvey. Wendy O William. Fiona Apple. \m/
My favorite food is sushi. and pizza. I eat a lot of health food and smoothies.
I read for my job. I guess in my spare time on the rare occasion that I read, I like to read new agey books like Deepak Chopra or stuff about energy work and directing your energy because I think its very useful and helpful and has gotten me far in life.
Its hard to say what my fave movie is unless u break it into categories. I grew up on horror movies and love them. My favorite is Hellraiser. I own the life-sized Pinhead robot from Spirit Halloween and display it year-round. I sometimes dress him in hats or wigs or outfits because it makes me laugh :p I also like girlie movies like the Notebook. Comedies. Anything too serious tends to bore me (dramas).. Unless it is a forensics show or educational documentary, I like those.
The six things I could never do without
1. Music 2. My pets 3. exercise 4. Life 5. sushi/sake 6. laughter
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Hmmm music, nature, art, new workouts or physical feats I can accomplish, sunshine, animals, positivity, and the list goes on and on :)
On a typical Friday night I am
With friends somewhere.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
my favorite color is rainbow ;)
You should message me if
If you want to, then do it!! Also, a plus if you want to have a family someday because I would like to have a little family to bake cupcakes for someday :) However, if you have a headless picture of your chesticles (that is my word for male boobies) as your profile picture and ask if I want to chat, you have about a 0% chance of getting a message back ;)
