So, I’m a bit of an odd bird. I started my education in math and computer science, and loved it. Didn’t much care for the entry-level work when I started working in the field, however, so I started watching TV (some details may have been omitted here). I saw an episode of Dr. House one day and was like: “I could totally enjoy that.” So I went back to school, got jobs as a teacher and a patient care tech, got into med school, and here I am. I’m a 4th year medical student at SLU, heading into Internal Medicine so I can DIAGNOSE ALL THE THINGS. Will probably do nephrology in the future. Will definitely teach in the future.
I’m looking, generally, for a partner in crime. I’m literally always laughing and joking (even on rounds … not always good) and finding someone with a similarly open mind and positive outlook is vital to me. I stay healthy and would prefer to find someone who took their health seriously, bonus points if you’re into martial arts--I'm proficient in 3 of them. I enjoy strategy games and would love to share that interest in a significant other. Having an academic interest in general is also very attractive—my pet topic would be psychology and human behavior, and I enjoy learning about / from the interests of others.
If you’ve found this at all entertaining, feel free to drop me a line. I do stay busy, but I’ll get to it. Thanks for stopping by!
Conversations. Just going to let this one speak for itself, there.
Humor. I'm one of those who can joke about the fact that he just got snotted on by a kid with meningitis.
Contentedness. I guess it's genetic. I've heard of people having to convince themselves that they're going to be happy when they wake up, any given day. I decide things like whether I'm going to bitch-slap my alarm again. Or whether I'm hungry. Happy? Content? Never a question.
TV: Game of Thrones, Dexter, Sherlock (BBC), South Park, Family guy, Colbert Report
Movies: Iron man, Avengers, Other super hero movies in general, LotR, fantasy movies in general ... I don't seek out RomComs, and it's typically ill-advised for me to watch certain types of horror movies, though I'll do it anyway. As embarrassing as it is to admit, the undead kiddies psych the sh*t out of me. Watching the Ring was a poor decision.
Music: Whatever makes my head bob. Usually pop stuff that I sound-hounded off the radio.
Games: Strategy! Love the time-honored strategy games like Poker, chess, checkers, and backgammon. Also, for some newfangled entertainment, there's League of Legends, Starcraft, and World of Warcraft (account currently lapsed, but I could be persuaded). I'm good at FPS's but I never play them if I don't have someone to play them with.
I also like games with great story--Mass Effect, Dragon Age, etc. Haven't done skyrim yet but I hear it's also very theatric. I prefer the mind-active style of entertainment to television if I'm left to my own devices, typically, but it's not an overwhelming preference.
Strategy games. Like them too. Not as much as girls.
Humor. I find it to be the barometer of the mind; if you've lost your sense of humor, you are in too deep.
Caffeine. Enough said.
My rowing machine, that I have one of.
My Teachers -- from professors to insightful friends. They should be higher on the list.
