My self-summary
Hello there! I hope you're having a fantastic day.

I was born and raised outside of Pittsburgh. Yes that means Sheetz > Wawa, Steelers > Eagles and Penguins > Flyers. I will watch just about any sport, please just don't have too high expectations about a Philly themed basement.

BS from Penn State in Psychology and Information Technology; Psychology because it's interesting, IT for the $

Moved to Southern California for work post-undergrad. Lived there for a little over a year. Loved every minute of it, but it never felt like home.

I came back East to Philly about 3 years ago. I know my way around but I still look to uwishunu for fun activities.

By day I work in IT Logistics for a manufacturing company.
By night I am in grad school and all the ridiculousness that comes along with it.
Update: Masters #1 ✔

I'd like to go for my PhD in Human Computer Interaction eventually, I love the city but miss the grass and trees, I love to stay active and I always enjoy exploring new things.
What I’m doing with my life
IT Logistics, MS in Information Systems, learning, exploring, and growing.
I’m really good at
Procrastinating, Listening (or so I've been told) , Jigsaw Puzzles, Back Squats, Chess, Killing plants, Goldeneye.
The first things people usually notice about me
Eyes. They're blue and change occasionally, though I have not yet determined the exact cause of change.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, The Eight, the Dan Brown books, xkcd, Wikipedia. The Picture of Dorian Grey (reading it now, but enjoying it so far)

Movies - The Game (watch it, I promise you'll love it), James Bond, The Matrix, Robin Hood Men in Tights, Monty Python and the Holy Grail... Really anything that has lots of guns, jokes, or really bad puns

Shows - Dr. Who, Family Guy, South Park, Sponge Bob, Game of Thrones, White Collar, CSI, HOUSE, Criminal Minds, Leverage, Elementary

Music - Evanescence, Cascada, Girltalk, Guns and Roses, 3 Doors Down, Green Day, Benny Benassi, Symphony X, The Beatles, AC-DC, Outkast, John Williams, Lindsay Sterling, Fun (dot), LMFAO, Daft Punk, etc. Anything except death metal.

Food - I have a slight obsession with Coca Cola. Otherwise, trying to eat somewhat healthy. I make meals every Sunday, though cooking for 1 can be a bit wasteful. Giving soylent a try for when I can't/don't want to cook a full meal. And no, not soylent green.
The six things I could never do without
Family,
Friends,
Sarcasm

Oh no, I didn't list 6 items. Whatever shall I do?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Those questions that aren't supposed to have an answer (which came first the chicken or the egg? If a tree falls and there's no one around to hear it does it make a sound?).
Also, random thoughts like what's the purpose of cursive anymore? Why do people insist on saying PIN Number? Are we going to blow ourselves up before or after we discover artificial intelligence?
On a typical Friday night I am
Out, in, or around
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If it's on the interwebs, it's no longer private
You should message me if
You've read at least one xkcd comic, have seen at least one Dr. Who episode, have had a fight over Coke vs Pepsi, have ever been to Pittsburgh and/or Southern California, or you have found something you absolutely need to tell somebody.
