My self-summary
I'm a guitar-playin', mandolin strummin', work-from-home content writer for an education website. I generally love looking for new music, film, reading, art, tennis, and hiking.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm designing online psychology and neuroscience courses, getting better at the guitar, and watching a bunch of movies. I plan on going into cognitive neuroscience for graduate school.
I’m really good at
Watching movies and reading cool books. I have a great attention span when it comes to those things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I generally switch off between being mellow and pretty talkative with the first people I meet. The very first things people notice are usually my skinniness/height, my hair, and my dry sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I actually made a list of these back in the day for a little school art project, so I'll just copy and paste that. Most of this is from high school though, so I'll have to update it some time...

I air guitar when nobody is looking.
You should message me if
If you want to talk about anything I've written above! I've noticed that kind of answer is given a lot, but really, if my interests interest you, there's a pretty good chance we'll at least have a good conversation.
