I have a B.S. in Physics, but I suspect I have unlearned quite a lot of what I knew in the years since graduation (or misunderstood it in the first place, when I was in school). I'm still good at math, though. Oddly (perhaps), my main motivation for studying Physics was to become a better writer. Many of my favorite authors are physicists.
Here's a few things about me that I was going to put in the "Most Private Thing I'm Willing To Admit" section, but instead am sticking up here:
1. I enjoy Ayn Rand's writing, but am afraid that admitting that will make people think I agree with her philosophy.
2. Only once in my life have I ever asked anyone out on a date. I have been the one asked out all other times.
3. My natural tendency is to talk a lot, but, once I started actually listening to the idiotically embarrassing inanities that poured out of my brain, I learned to shut the hell up and think things through before speaking. Still, the desire to talk continuously and without filters is always there, and it sometimes leaks out if I'm not careful.
4. I am easily talked into doing things I didn't think I wanted to do beforehand.

Adorable animals who want to play
The entire range of human emotion for me to explore
Free time in which to take deep breaths and just relax
Friends who surprise me
I've learned how to convince myself that I enjoy the things I do, retroactively. For instance, I'm sure I had a horrible time being depressed, moody, annoying, awkward and sarcastic as a teenager in high school like everyone else, but I have retconned my past to remember it as being a lot of fun.
