In three words: curious, intellectual, and vivacious. I love
learning new things, especially languages, and when I have time,
(haha yeah right :]P) I like reading about space, sexuality, and
psychology. I'm somewhat of an introvert, but not super shy. (INFJ)
When I'm totally burnt out for the day, I absolutely love watching
cartoons, documentaries, anime, and comedies.
I’m really good at
Languages! I love writing/reading in English, took some Spanish in high school, and studied Russian, Persian, and Polish in college. I want to learn so many other languages, but I'm finding it hard to be disciplined without the classroom environment. Totally up for language practice with patient native speakers/polyglots!
Competitive Tetris. Think you got game? BRING IT ON.

Food: Well, I love food, and I eat pretty much everything... except meat; I'm a vegetarian. Mushrooms are amazing. I have been known to have upwards of 6 kinds of cheese in the fridge at once... Can you tell I grew up on the border of Wisconsin?
