In spite of studying my brains out to get ready for medical school, I strive to find moments of play like this. My relaxed demeanor may mislead you, though; personal sincerity and integrity is my highest-held value. Consequently, I am a feminist and believe that everyone should be treated with respect.
I am also learning not to take myself too seriously. For instance, I am not without a supreme sense of humor about the fact that I appear to be a quintessential hipster from my outward appearance, but in my defense I'm a sincere believer that wearing a dinosaur button-down shirt or a bow tie has the magical effect of drawing exactly the kind of intelligent, nerdy, quirky kind of people into my presence that I enjoy (and repelling the sort that I don't.) Besides, bow ties are cool.
I'm handy. I can fix your computer. And build things. So that's a plus.
Climbing things at random. It's a thing.
Handstands. Because, of course?
Science! I can't promise to not occasionally go on a little science rant from time to time.
Puzzles, of the human variety and otherwise.
Cooking. If you ever say "Bitch, make me a sandwich!" I will be very angry. And then -- in the manliest way possible -- I will make you a sandwich to make the angels weep with envy.

The ability to run
Self improvement; I try to do periodic self-checks for the kind of foibles that tend to like to hide in all of our collective blind spots. I have a mind of my own, but I appreciate constructive criticism from the right people.
Whichever hobby I'm currently obsessed with. When I become interested in something, I give it my all until I've mastered it. Current obsessions: brewing beer and acro-yoga.
Haters, and how they are prone to hate. (Client facing jobs are, at certain times, a special hell)
Or, you know, just to say hi. That works too.
