Currently, I'm working towards a PhD in petroleum engineering. Fingers crossed, I'll be done in a couple of years. On the other hand, we all know how "done in a couple of years" turns out. But that's not so bad when you're paid to stay in school in Austin.
Otherwise, I love traveling and wish I could do it more often (but then, who doesn't?). My favorite cities that I've been to are New York and San Francisco. I enjoy meeting people and kicking it with friends, whether its at a bar or over dinner or on the basketball court.
And board games. I play lots of board games with my friends. Lately we've been playing Settlers of Catan and Dominion.
And swing dancing. I'm actually just OK at this, but whatever. It's a lot of fun anyways.
