My self-summary
Not finished with my profile at the moment, check back later
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a full-time student at USF majoring in Computer Science with a minor in Psych, hoping to one day become a research professor and study artificial intelligence. I figure I'll get work as a software developer or ethical hacker until I can afford to go back to school for my doctorate.
The first things people usually notice about me
Isn't it a little nonsensical of them to include this section? If you're getting any information from it that you didn't from the rest of my profile... then those aren't the first things people notice about me.

That being said, probably the hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Science fiction, fantasy, and even some of that "classic literature" you learned to either love or hate in high school English. Old-school SF authors like Ray Bradbury are my favorites, and the cosmic horror of H.P. Lovecraft has a special place in my heart. I think George R.R. Martin's talent for creating characters makes Game of Thrones (ASoIaF) an even better story than Lord of the Rings, and Terry Pratchett is the Douglas Adams of fantasy. I also find Ayn Rand's writing to be beautiful, unpopular opinion that may be.

Music: I like a wide variety of music - everything from metal to electronic to classical to indie - but Rush is my favorite band. Everything about them resonates deeply with me; the music, the lyrics, the way they responded to their record company's demands for a more commercial direction with a 20-minute dystopian sci-fi epic as the only track on the A-side of their first platinum album... Their music never fails to lift my spirits or inspire me to live my dreams.

TV/Movies: Game of Thrones is the best show on TV right now, with Breaking Bad as a close second. Adventure Time is wonderfully surreal, and the style of humor in Archer is pretty close to my own. As for movies... cult films. All of them. Especially ones that make me laugh, think, or both. I also have to mention Firefly/Serenity; if I had to choose any fictional universe to live in, it would be the Firefly 'Verse. Just me and my crew, more or less a family, living out of a spaceship and taking jobs as they come, always staying one step ahead of the oppressive, totalitarian Alliance. That's the life.

Food: I am a pizza snob. I grew up on Long Island, a block away from a little pizza shop called Tarrallo's where the owner would greet everyone by name. My parents and I took the train to the city every couple weekends, and I would get pizza from street vendors who hand it to you already folded in half, because that's the only way to eat a true NY pizza. Living in Florida is a perpetual and futile quest to find a pizza that can compare.
Six things I could never do without
Epigrams (non-poetic), jazz solos, oatmeal raisin cookies, lucid dreams, puns, and dark chocolate.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
This is the Hubble Ultra-Deep Field. It's a photograph of a very small area of our night sky, magnified to a ridiculous degree. It's the farthest we've ever seen from Earth. Every speck of light in that picture is a galaxy. Not a star, a galaxy. Imagine every person you've seen over the course of your entire life. The stars in that speck probably outnumber those people. Now imagine how many of those people know your name. That's about how many of those stars have planets. The next time you're outside at night, hold up your hand. The Hubble Ultra-Deep Field takes up less of our night sky than your pinkie fingernail.

Yeah, I get pretty excited about outer space.
On a typical Friday night I am
Spending time with my friends - playing games, debating which fictional character would win in a fight, going to a concert, or even some hitherto unknown activity that someone's suggested.
You should message me if used to get in trouble for reading in class. like to share good music with your friends. wish The Big Bang Theory and The IT Crowd would acknowledge the existence of female nerds. don't have any preconceived expectations and want to see where things go.
The two of us
