My self-summary
You're probably as tired of reading long, excessively detailed paragraphs about people as I am, so here's a nice bulleted list about me:

- Born in Alaska, moved to Florida in 4th grade, moved to Nashville the same year.
- Got my BS in molecular biology at UT-Chattanooga
- Got my MD from UT, now working as a resident physician with UT internal medicine.
- Love traveling, and have already marked Canada, Italy, and Russia off of my list.
- Likes: tennis, Russian language/culture, reading, bad movies, artsy people, big cities
- Dislikes: football, country music, intensely rural areas, pushy religious sorts

I think that about sums it up from a "summary" point of view. I'm an open book, so feel free to message me with any questions or clarifications!
What I’m doing with my life
Healing the sick, saving lives, the usual...(but seriously, mostly working)
I’m really good at
Sarcasm, knowing useless trivia about random topics, tennis, playing guitar, pretending I know what I'm doing in the hospital...oh, and sleeping. I am a champion at sleeping.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hm, the only thing I've been told someone has "noticed" about me right away are my eyes, I guess. Or my laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Short Story Collection of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tender is the Night, Snows of Kilimanjaro, World War Z, The Divine Comedy, Watchmen, The Things They Carried, too many others to name.

Movies: Night Watch, Day Watch, Goodfellas, Casino, 28 Days Later, 28 Weeks Later, Outbreak, Contagion, Romeo + Juliet, Clerks, Clerks II, Clue, Dr. Strangelove, Top Secret, Stiff Upper Lip, Hunger Games, and a ton others.

Shows: Arrested Development, Always Sunny in Philidelphia, The League, Absolutely Fabulous, Brigada, Black Adder, Father Ted, The Daily Show, Star Trek: DS9, Battlestar Galactica

Music: Dresden Dolls, Orion Rigel Dommisse, Birdeatsbaby, Cake Bake Betty, Terabrite, The Tiny, David Bowie, Glukoza, No Doubt, Yulia Savicheva, Kate Nash, Noize MC,

Food: General Tso's chicken, chow mei fan, enchiladas, chicken vindaloo, naan, vegetable samosa with tamarind chutney, various other odds and ends.
The six things I could never do without
1. iPhone/iPad (not a Macbook fan, but love these two)
2. Wifi
3. Someone to joke around with
4. Music
5. At least SOME of my books
6. A plan for surviving the zombie apocalypse. I mean, come on...what are you going to do without one when hell is full and the dead walk the earth? (Okay, admittedly, I just couldn't come up with a 6th).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How interesting physics would be if I wasn't so awful at math. Or how much longer I can procrastinate and still get 4 or 5 hours of sleep.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hm, depends on the month. I'm either hanging out with friends/watching a movie, or waiting for the pager to go off, telling me there is a new admission in the ER.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I silently judge people who think they are "nerdy" because they bought black-framed glasses at whatever hipster-clothes-depot kids are going to lately. I worked hard for my nerdiness, damn it!
You should message me if
Well, I imagine you have your own criteria for whom you should or shouldn't message.
