You are capable of speaking about a topic you love to a stranger with enough detail you fear that you'll bore them. You consider learning to be your life's pursuit, in or out of the classroom. You are tall. You want to hear about farm life. You're proud of your work. You think flakiness is a cardinal sin. You would never dare use "renaissance man" to describe yourself. You have fond feelings for Northwestern. You enjoy the flirtation, but know how to close.
