My self-summary
I just moved to MD a few weeks ago for work. I'm still getting acquainted with the area and trying to meet new people.

I'm a huge culture buff which is great for living close to DC. I try to visit the museums and galleries once-or-twice a month. I like to keep up with the changing exhibits.

I've been reading the classics for a few months and I really like to paint (but I'm not too good); I was an art student my first year of college.

I really like history, stories, cooking, and botany.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a mathematician and biomedical researcher.

Not too long ago I volunteered at an elementary school; I taught gifted first graders and loved it. I often think about going back to working with kids in some capacity.

I just started working with a publisher to get a kids story into a book.
I’m really good at
I've got some good chef skills, my technical writing skills (scientific) are on point.

I can see bigger pictures pretty easily. I think this helps me be a patient person.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I like all sorts. I really got into Malcom Gladwell's works. I like anything by Oscar Wilde. Name of the Wind and Song of Ice and Fire are good fiction pieces. The Godfather and Dune were outstanding. I started reading Paul Ekman's psych stuff work work, but I actually enjoyed most of his books. I'm reading Herodotus' Inquiry and Lovecraft's short stories right now.

My movie and show list are too many to count. If it's thought provoking, dramatic, funny, violent, fiction, or historically accurate, I'll probably like it.

Food: I love Italian. Though, I can't say that I dislike anything really. Hmm... that's not true. I once had some kind of Japanese bean... stuff? that tasted like coffee in snot.

Music: Breaking Benjamin, Cage the Elephant, Jimmy Eat World, 3 Doors Down... Love those guys. Banks. MSMR. Misterwives.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I know the word doesn't have any meaning in today's world, but I like the idea of being an 'honorable' person. I sometimes think I was a born a few centuries too late, and maybe it's naive of me, but really appreciate people who keep their word and act with some nobility. Courtesy and kindness are never out of style.
On a typical Friday night I am
One or a combination of:
Reading/gaming after getting takeout.
Drinks with coworkers if we're angry enough.
Binge on TV.
Shooting some shit with fellow shit-shooters.
If it's spring/summer, going to for run or hike.
