My self-summary
I am currently in medical school and love it. I am devoted to education and learning and am especially interested biology and future medical technology. I always strive to be caring and compassionate and hope I can make a difference---my 'mark' on society--by becoming a doctor.

I really enjoy intellectual endeavors. Acquiring knowledge and learning more about the world is a big part of my life. I am forever a skeptic and secularist; therefore, I can safely call myself an anti-theist. I do not dislike religious people--I have many friends of many different religious backgrounds--but am against religion as a fundamental concept and contend the world would be a much safer, more moral place in its absence.

I understand that last paragraph will turn many people away, but that's OK. Being kind, compassionate, logical, and reaching out to others are all things I strive for. For this, I am happy with many of the moral conclusions I have come to thus far. I am always working to become a more caring and understanding person.

Humor is also an important aspect of my life. Sarcasm is fantastic.

In the past year I've become very involved in mindfulness meditation. It has made a significant impact on my life and I hope to share it with others. I am currently designing a mindfulness program to teach medical students how to teach mindfulness to low-socioeconomic K-12 students, as well as homeless shelters, healthcare workers, and just the community in general. I hope to see it flourish within the coming years and spread to other medical schools across the country.

I thought I'd spend this summary explaining mostly what's in my head, rather than what I do. However, a brief list of my hobbies seems appropriate. Besides my academic endeavors, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, playing golf, playing poker, video games exercising, clubbing, snowboarding, as well as pretty much anything that involves having fun ^_^
What I’m doing with my life
As aforementioned, I am in medical school. In addition, I also founded and run an organization called Project Hope--a peer support and social organization for young adults with chronic illness. I have been through quite a lot of adversity for someone my age and created this organization as an outlet for other young adults who are facing similar adversity. Luckily, I am much more 'medically stable' now, but aim to use my experiences and what I've learned to help others.
I’m really good at
Making lists of things I'm good at.
The first things people usually notice about me
This seems like a very odd question that I have a feeling is extremely subjective. I'm not sure how to answer this without sounding superficial or conceited. Maybe the first thing people notice about me is my long, drawn out answers to seemingly simple questions.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am a vegetarian and always will be. Don't get me wrong though, I don't dislike anyone for their choice to follow a more standard American diet. Considering 97% of the country is omnivorous that probably wouldn't go over well anyway. Plus, no one likes an entitled vegetarian.

I'm assuming no one wants to read the usual cliche rant about my likes in books movies or music, although I very much enjoy them all. If your internal organs are just burning with desire to know, ask and I'll let you know :)
Six things I could never do without
The Sun,
Really literal lists.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Morality, philosophy, space, future technology, the myriad perils of the medical field. Especially morality. I spend a significant amount of time thinking about how to act in certain situations, how to properly treat people, how to be more compassionate, how to think, how to learn, etc. Most of my life consists of experience followed by personal, and hopefully at least somewhat objective, analysis. I am always thinking about how to be a better person---a cognitive task I feel like will never end.
On a typical Friday night I am
Trying to memorize all the words to the Education Connection commercial songs.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a pet cow named Erkel who is anti-semitic.
I also lie about things.
