My self-summary
I am a(n):
- little piece of Minnesota nice in the Big Apple. Came here for medical school and fell in love with the city so much I decided to stay.

-avid athlete. Running is my favorite way to work out stress, but I love doing anything active

-mellowing tomboy. I love football (Go Pack!!), work with powertools and lifting heavy things (that is to say: people), and probably swear more than I should. No room for shrinking violets here.

- aspiring polyglot, currently working on 한국어 (according to my friend, I'm not white, just "Super Sayan Asian")
What I’m doing with my life
Mid-way through my orthopedic surgery residency. I play hard and, unfortunately, work harder.
I’m really good at
engaging on most subjects. I love to talk to people and learn something new.

What I'm really bad at: breaking the ice in the first place.

Food: One of my favorite pastimes is sharing a meal and a bottle of wine. I'll try pretty much anything but favorites are: French, Italian, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, and Vietnamese. Also trying to get better at cooking. I love making 깍두기 but it has the ability to smell up a tiny New York kitchen. If you have a secret to good 미역국, let me know!
The six things I could never do without
a good subwoofer, my passport, running, sunshine, tea, plants
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Operative indications (it's a work thing)

How to improve. Of late, I've been placing emphasis on mindfulness, and old-fashioned social graces like hand-written thank you notes.

All the non-medical books I want to read but don't have time to

Where I want to travel next
On a typical Friday night I am
Assuming I'm not on call? Singing at a noraebang in k-town, out dancing at an EDM show, or snuggling at home with my teddy bear and a good book or k-drama.
