So, about me. I'm studying for a PhD in math with a plan to go on and teach the subject on the college level. Being a student is, as noted above, more or less a full time job -- about a third of that time devoted to teaching two calculus classes, and the rest is reserved for studying and homework. I'm simultaneously trying to prove a conjecture I came up with that will doubtless revolutionize mathematics -- or at least let me to publish the proof in some journal.
As it stands, I have two Bachelor's degrees -- my BS in math, and a BA in psychology from several years ago. If you know anything about psych, you know that there is NOTHING that can be done with a bachelors in the field, but by the time I realized that I wasn't going on for a masters in psych, it was too late to change majors the first time around. As a result, for the last twelve years I've shuffled from clerical job to clerical job. I've had some fairly interesting jobs. I designed forms for a St. Paul, MN insurance company, transcribed autopsy reports for the University of Minnesota, and for three memorable months worked as secretary to the public defender of Dawes County, Nebraska -- who repeatedly threatened to kill me.
My last major relationship ended in the fall of 2007 -- the day after my birthday, in fact. It was mutual and friendly. We were no longer that much into each other, and I wanted to move back to the east coast where my family lives, and she had a friend who wanted to move out to Minnesota where there were a lot more jobs. We talk on occasion, and I'm friends with her daughter on Facebook.
I am something of a geek -- I'm play RPGs, Magic the Gathering, and occasionally World of Warcraft, City of Heroes or Champions Online, depending on my mood. I have a huge comic book collection. I read a lot of horror novels and mysteries. I love horror movies, thrillers, and comedies. I've written two novels, one of which will be up on Amazon for Kindle in the near future, and the other of which... I still haven't let anybody read. I speak Russian, though my skills are rusty. I play the bass (to one degree or another) and sing in the same clef. I'm in the process of designing a board game -- and have been for, oh, ten years maybe.
I'm liberal possibly to a fault. I picked up the Bush Family Cookbook the awhile back, and was tremendously disappointed. Their recipe for disaster was missing, and there was no information whatsoever on cooking an election.
Yeah, so, if that joke offended you, don't write to me -- we so won't get along. Otherwise, hey, see? I'm funny!
I am totally awesome, super funny, and prone to hyperbole.
