My self-summary
I enjoy camping, traveling, reading, coffee, and staying active. I generally like to occupy my time with activities so I am always on the run. I am in grad school for geology right now.

And in case you are wondering, yes, I have heard a mountain-load of rock puns and "Jesus Christ Marie! They're minerals!" from people when tell them I am a geologist.

My friends told me I would love John Muir. I looked him up and his quote, "the mountains are calling and I must go" resonated with me.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm studying groundwater sciences at WMU as a graduate student. I am done with my classes so all I need to do is work on my thesis project.

When I am at school I'm work part-time at a museum and contemplate "shower thoughts" such as, "April Fool's Day is the one day of the year when people critically evaluate news articles before accepting them as true" or "the ultimate goal of a good dating app is to eventually delete it".
I’m really good at
I am good at engaging the public. Years of working at a museum helped me get over my of fear public speaking.

My friends have told me I have a good radio voice, so I have contemplated starting a podcast.
The first things people usually notice about me
People say I am friendly and understanding. There is usually a goofy smile on my face after learning something cool in class. When it is colder I wear an obnoxiously long Gryffindor scarf or a large red ushanka. Sometimes both if there is a polar vortex.

The six things I could never do without
1.) My ability to memorize random things.
2.) My active imagination. It keeps me from getting bored.
3.) My pens for taking notes.
4.) My Car
5.) The 24 hour gym (because I am usually busy all day and the WMU gym is packed all the time)
6.) My Kindle.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-Rocks and minerals.

-How as living organisms, we are the universe experiencing itself.

On a typical Friday night I am
Studying, researching, or working. The grad life is totally fun! But during those rare occasions I'm free I'm at a bonfire with friends or stargazing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to hide rum behind a removable soap caddy in my boarding school's dorm room shower. They never caught me.

I'm looking for someone who genuinely enjoys life, has a large sense of humor, and an open mind.
