What I’m doing with my life
During the semester, my life consists mostly of reading, writing and grading undergrad essays.

I'm originally from Michigan, but moved to DC a few years back for for grad school.

I'm always up for meeting new people to either chat with online or hang out with. I have far too many hobbies/interests, so chances are we can find something to talk about.

I like being outside, playing games (card, video, board, sports). I waste far too much time on the internet.

My first goal of the summer is to find a used bike and just explore.
I’m really good at
Reading comprehension, pointless trivia, eating cereal, skimming history texts, explaining the infield fly rule.

I'm fairly athletic; I enjoy most any sport. I love swimming. I have a tendency to buy sports equipment that I barely use (i.e. a lacrosse stick), but I have started making use of all those racquetball rackets I have in the closet.

I'm sure I'll think of some other things eventually...
The first things people usually notice about me
I really don't know, you'd have to ask somebody who doesn't know me very well. I'm not really sure what distinguishing features I have.
