My self-summary

You're still here? Color me surprised. Come in-- sit down! I was just sitting down for tea, but I'll pour a second cup. There. Hold it between your palms. Feel the smooth texture of the surface, the heat beginning to spread throughout. Take a breath; the aroma alone is half the experience. Relaxed? Good.

What's that? Something about me? In bulleted format? Certainly!
-I am currently pursuing a bachelor's in bioengineering at Pitt.
-I play the viola in the university's orchestra, as well as the honors college string quartet.
-My true home is in the rocky mountains; Glacier National Park is the most beautiful place on the planet.
-I've been to London, Paris, Rome, and Venice
-I fence Epee.
-I don't watch cable.
What I’m doing with my life
Studying and developing professional skills. I'll be more sure after the PhD.
I’m really good at
Math and music. Oh, and writing, I'm told.
EDIT: Also DM'ing, apparently! One of the players from an old group told me she missed having me as a DM. D'aww.
The first things people usually notice about me
The hair.
Then they're surprised my mind isn't more untidy (again, because of the hair).
I tend to take ideas and run with them.
