On a serious note, I'm a DC transplant and I've been here a couple years now. Looking for someone to explore with.
If I had more free time I would probably start talking to you on the street or in a cafe, but I don't so I'm looking to find you through the interwebs. Although I can be outgoing and talkative I'm also comfortable with silences whether in conversation or in general. I can be very open and I'm up for a lively conversation about anything if it's with the right person.
Things I would like to do more of:
- sleep more than 6.5 hours
- anything outdoors
- read for fun
- play music
- sound less dull/two-dimensional than this list makes me seem
Not religious, but I like learning about religions and have a deep respect for people who submit their lives to a higher calling, whether it be religious, social, or otherwise.
One of the reasons I studied biology in school is b/c it required less writing. Memorizing facts and understanding systems comes easy to me, but writing is work - reminds me of a kid forced to eat vegetables. If we seem to be compatible, I'd much rather meet for coffee and chat than try to distill my entire personality in a few e-mails.
Daydreaming about moving to Montana or India. Getting excited about summer in the city and going camping.

Bonus if you do something to make the world a better place, whether through volunteering, work, donating to charity, whatever.
