My self-summary
Hey, whats up-
My name is Andy, but people call me Andy ;)
I'm a fairly laid back kind of guy about most things. Especially those that don't really matter. If they matter to you, than you can decide. But for the topics that do matter, that are important to me, these are what I would stand and fight for.
I value honesty, intelligence, loyalty (to a degree), and self-confidence without arrogance.
I do try to deal with things in a calm manner and finding humor in a situation always helps me deal with it. I love people who have the one or two word sarcastic come backs, they always make me laugh.

I love people who can make me laugh and know how to cook (lucked out as most of my friends are very good cooks). If you can't do the latter, let me know I'll teach you because people tell me all the time that I'm really good at it (and I have to agree with them).

I really like rugby, baseball, Aussie Rules Football, and I love soccer. I can ski and snowboard, and I'm not sure which one I like better :) have to love fresh powder. Back packing, hiking, camping, fishing (been deep sea fishing once, that's a story in and of itself)...

Teams I support: Portland Timbers, THE Seattle Mariners, Manchester United, Boston Red Sox, Carroll College, THE University of Southern California, Seahawks,
What I’m doing with my life
I used to work too much for far too little money taking care of an old man who no longer has the ability to even remember names of people. I'm finishing my undergrad, volunteer/work with kids, going to get my masters in neurobiology, than get my MD.
Just living the dream while chasing a better one!
I’m really good at
Skiing, snowboarding, directions, finding my way, telling stories (real and made up).
Ochem, biology, anatomy, biochem, molecular...

Movies: Rudy, Gettysburg, Black Hawk Down, Boone Dock Saints, Mean Machine (British version), Band of Brothers, Shaw shank Redemption, Pursuit of Happiness, Chok Dee, V for Vendetta, 13th Warrior, Le Mans, Grand Prix

Music: (I'll listen to just about anything)

Bring on the suggestions-
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Am I going to be able to do what I really want with my life?

... who decided little dogs that never shut up and look kind of like a rat, are not just a rat with a furry tail (sorry if you have one but I can't stand dogs that never shut up)
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to get my homework done so I can goof off Saturday and Sunday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ask me and I'll tell you, it's a good conversation starter =)

... and one thing I will admit to, I think I actually cried when the Red Sox won the 2004 American League Series. It still chokes me up :)
You should message me if
...you want to talk and get to know me. You never know someone until you talk to them ;)
Also... if you have any good stories to tell, can make me laugh, and have a good head on your shoulders, I'd love to hear from you.
