My self-summary
I moved to Berkeley last fall to take a full time job as a Microbiologist! Even though I've been here a couple of months, I still feel kind of new to the scene and am looking to meet new people.
What I’m doing with my life
Figuring it out
I’m really good at
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm blonde? Yeah, probably that I'm blonde.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't read as much as I used to, but some of my favorite authors are: Oliver Sacks, Richard Brautigan, Sartre, and Bukowski

Shows: Parks and Rec, Bobs Burgers, Kids in the Hall, Comedy Bang! Bang!, the Inbetweeners, the Ricky Gervais show (and the podcasts it's based on), Black Mirror, Mad Men, New Girl, Breaking Bad, some reality stuff... I watch less TV than I used to, but I still watch a lot of TV. I can be pretty nerdy about it actually.

Movies: Oh so many movies; I have a pretty eclectic taste.

Music: I love going to live venues [like 5-10 dollar entrance fee kinda shows] and discovering small-time bands that have a good beat and are fun to dance to.
On my ipod/at home - I am into rock and alternative type of music for the most part: Kinks, Bowie, the Hidden Cameras, Beach House, the Velvet Underground, Ages and Ages, Cat Stevens, Krautrock, Tinariwen, Erkin Koray... and the occasional Billy Bragg can really reach my heart :)
I've recently fallen in love with NPR's World cafe because I've learned of so many cool bands from David Dye

Food: South East Asian and Japanese! And beer... and liquor.
Six things I could never do without
Podcasts and NPR [So sad when I learned they don't allow us to listen to anything on headphones in my lab!]
Walks [//hours long exploration of an area]
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Finding ways to meet new people, discovering cool stuff to do around the area.

What the hell I'm going to do next.
On a typical Friday night I am
Fridays ain't so typical these days

Nonetheless, it probably involves a little bit of inebriation.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I do not enjoy long phone conversations.
You should message me if
You live in the East Bay and see yourself as a person that wants to go out and try out fun stuff on occasion.

You can say something more than just "hi"
The two of us
