Yep, I'm nerdy, but I'm aware of it, so I think I do a pretty good job of keeping it in check. If I'm not doing research (trying to finish up my PhD) or teaching (I lead a series of workshops geared towards learning the math and sciences in a collaborative environment), then I'm probably biking with my friends to sample some LA cuisine. Or I could be playing the occasional video game.
I recently forced myself to take the Myer's-Briggs test. Apparently I'm an INTJ. Whatever that means.
Biking almost everywhere to offset the fact that I unfortunately drive a gas guzzler.
Chopping vegetables and then transforming them into something delicious.
Movies: Mad Max, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, In Bruges, Her, The Big Lebowski, Apocalypse Now, The Royal Tenenbaums, Life of Brian, What Dreams May Come, Citizen Kane, Brazil, The Shining, Alien, Toy Story, Lion King, WALL-E, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
I don't watch much TV anymore, so most of these are pretty dated: Archer, Bob's Burgers, Trailer Park Boys, Futurama, That 70's Show, Scrubs, The X-Files, Wilfred, Titus, Fraggle Rock.
Music (Whew, now I'm really going to date myself!): Bob Dylan, The Band, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, Daft Punk, Cake
Food: Probably either Indian or Mexican, but, really, its all good.
That it feels unfair to me that 2 is a prime number.
The differences between how people express themselves through the written word and via speech.
Lately, as in the last week or so, I've been trying to teach myself French. Ce que je fais bien?
You'd rather bike somewhere than drive there.
