Former soldier, future doctor, and currently an overworked medical student. It's been an interesting ride to be sure.
I've lived abroad a fair amount of time. Over that time I've learned that I feel most alive when I am out encountering new people, new cultures, new thoughts. I love traveling and seeing what life has to offer.
My work is important to me as well; I sacrificed a lot to get what I want and to be here. Consequently it means a lot to meet someone who is passionate about their ideas, helping others, or seeking some larger dream they put their effort into. For me, it is wanting to help others through medicine, to be someone who makes a difference.
When I'm not studying or working, I'm as happy going hiking in the mountains as much as I am having drinks on the beach. A quiet night watching movies or a road trip to go explore...I'm interested in living for the moment when it takes you.
Life is for living, not wondering at what could have happened.
Far too many to list. I love reading. This has gotten to be a significant issue in that I can't find a place to *store* all my books (I wish I was joking).

My grandmother's cooking (Hungarian)

The best food is the food that's in front of you!
The meaning of life. What is the purpose of existence, what do people believe and why? Etc.
Wishing I was out backpacking in Alaska, Acadia National Park, or the Kancamagus.
Listening to downbeat/chill music and hanging out with friends.
Looking for the blue bird of happiness.
Working out because I love good food way too much.
Reflecting on the irony of having a headache whilst studying for an exam on migraines and headaches.
You're someone who wants a partner, an equal. You want something more out of life than a white picket fence and caring what everyone thinks...
You see it as perfectly reasonable to say "@#$% it, we're buying cider doughnuts/maple sugar candy/homemade ice cream and taking a drive up to Kennebunkport/Boston/Portland/Montreal."
You would rather do something incredible on a weekend instead of watching a ball game on tv.
If you want a white picket fence or a meal ticket, you may want to move on. If you are someone who is about lots of stuff and less about experiences, I won't be your best bet. If you want someone to be awesome with and do awesome things, I'm your boy, Blue.
If I don't answer a message, I apologize. I don't like to be intentionally mean to anyone, but I am not always able to see things working out. This is in no way a reflection on you, just the situation I am in.
