When I find things I enjoy, I make time for them. Music, fitness, friends, good eats and brews, those sort of things. I'm extremely experimental, I always want to try something new, and I love to do it with hardy companions. This becomes even more apparent in my romantic relationships, especially when they're going well.
While I do not expect or require daily contact, I tend to schedule multiple hangouts whenever I'm seeing someone I like. I enjoy a variety of reading, music, visual art, film, and Netflix - as much as I enjoy a variety of outdoors, cultural, and artistic activities. All are things that I love to enjoy with a partner, especially when enriched with engaging conversations.
Bits about my attitudes can be summed up in the personality tab. I can be outgoing, though in my natural habitat I'll oscillate between nerdy excitement and calm attentiveness. I'm extremely nice, to a fault, and compassionate. I want my vocation to let me express my empathy and concern for humanity while benefiting from my endless curiosity, currently leaning towards behavioral neurological research. If I can make time for it I do activism, focusing largely on secular, environmentalist, and humanist activities. I'd like any potential dates to find these interests appealing and want to join me in some of my intellectual, natural, or musical adventures.
As far as fitness goes, I'm making a concerted effort to complete a triathlon in the next year or so. I've lost 15 pounds in the last year and a half and got back to 7:30 minute mile pace, so I'm part-way there. Wooh.
Most of my free time is spent doing lab & school related things. Science!
