My self-summary
Here's something weird that I've noticed about myself: I don't really have specific hobbies that define me. I prefer doing something completely new and random than doing something I know I like. I spend most of my free time going to the gym (CrossFit, but not in a culty way), running, reading, watching Netflix, traveling to see my friends, pretty generic stuff. I don't fit 100% into any one hobby and like to go out and try new things. Bleh, self-summaries are the worst.
What I’m doing with my life
Working in a genetics lab for a pharma company.
I’m really good at
Turning a normal conversation into a political debate, but in a fun way over beers where you don't end up mad (lived in DC for awhile and picked that up).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: All Paul Theroux train travel books, Norwegian Wood/anything Murakami, John Irving, The Great Gatsby, Watership Down, David Sedaris, The New Yorker

Movies: Clue, Welcome to the Dollhouse, Wet Hot American Summer, Christopher Guest's movies

Music: nothing right now, but I spend a lot of time listening to Podcasts. Marc Maron's a favorite.

Food: spicy noodle soups, real Mexican, can't get through a week without a shawarma or other Middle Eastern wrap
The six things I could never do without
Water (that's serious, I'm obsessed)
Coffee
A long run on a cool night
Chapstick
Something to read
Something to look forward to (vague enough?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What's next and whether I'm making the right choices.
On a typical Friday night I am
Good dinner and early to bed, usually I have a long run on Saturday mornings. Alternatively, having a few beers with friends at a bar/pub.
You should message me if
You like a wide range of things, enjoy working out as much as having a six pack of good beer and a plate of stinky cheese, have an affinity for other things found in a catalog of stuff white people like (but will watch all of Portlandia and laugh about how ridiculous it is to pickle a set of iPhone headphones), like to travel, are contemplating what to do when Colbert goes off the air, and generally enjoy life and new experiences.
