My self-summary
I am a self-professed nerd and workaholic, so I don't find too much time to go out and meet people. As such, I am trying the world of online dating (because I am a workaholic, not because I am a nerd... that may not have needed clarification, but just in case, here it is).

I am not the most athletic person you will ever meet nor am I the most coordinated. Hiking is probably my favorite activity, thus I am out and about quite a bit in the summer.

I love exploring the different neighborhoods of Denver (i.e., scoping out the best breweries) but I also love to sit at home and read or bake. I am chronically behind on my favorite television shows, so I sometimes marathon-watch on a few and far between lazy weekend.
What I’m doing with my life
I am beginning my PhD program in Biostatistics and work for the department of radiology doing research. I also recently have begun moonlighting with a group working on external validation of healthcare apps.
I’m really good at
Being unintentionally funny (or so my friends tell me).

Memorizing random facts (including lines from movies, TV shows and song lyrics).

Driving a stick shift car (it was the only thing I had known until my car met an untimely fate and I bought an automatic).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Television Shows: True Detective (season 1 only), Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Girls, Dexter, The Profit, and a few others that I sporadically watch.

Movies: I will watch almost anything with a decent plot. My only requirement is that if a movie is based on a book, I must read the book before watching the movie.

Music: Chvrches, Barcelona, The Fray, Augustana, Bruce Springsteen, The Civil Wars, Of Monsters and Men, Silversun Pickups, etc. My taste is fairly eclectic and I am always in search of new music.

Food: I think I will instead list the foods I do not like. Those would be pickles, peanuts (including peanut butter), eggs, anything from McDonalds, radishes and celery. Other than that, I will try anything once, although sometimes you shouldn't tell me what I'm eating or I'll let my preconceived notions of it get in the way.
The six things I could never do without
1) My calculator... I am a graduate student!
2) My glasses... it would be dangerous for me to drive without them.
3) Music or podcasts... I listen to at least one of almost every day.
4) A good laugh every day.
5) The occasional spontaneous weekend adventure.
6) My friends and family (a requisite on this list).
On a typical Friday night I am
One of these two scenarios is usually what occurs:
1) Working on homework until I accidentally fall asleep on my couch/bed/at my desk.
2) Hanging out with my friends somewhere in the city. We usually don't have a well-conceived plan, which is part of the fun!
