When I’m not daydreaming about being a comic book character you can find me hard at work torturing college students and making scientific breakthroughs of tremendous importance. At least that’s what I tell myself. If I allow myself to actually believe that I’m a part time math professor and full time doctoral student, I tend to be less full of maniacal zeal, and become simply content with my life.
People tend to seek out my ideas and opinions on a wide variety of subjects. They claim that I’m a good friend and someone they are comfortable talking to. I think they’ve all realized that I’m full of super and magical ideas, and that they are just trying to pry them from my brain for there own use. I use these opportunities to spread my irreverent worldview, and have a few laughs. Unfortunately reality demands that we all have to be serious at times.
I’ve tried a couple of random dates, and I decided to go about finding a partner in a more selective manner. Last year I dated a girl who thought Herman Cain would make a good president. I’m still traumatized from that experience. At least the nightmares have stopped.
My main hobby is reading. Unfortunately school has cut into my pleasure reading time. I tend to read mostly comics these days, but I find myself struggling to keep up with them, though I can still typically be found in Jim Hanley’s Universe once or twice a week.
