My self-summary
I learn and travel.
What I’m doing with my life
Life-time student. That being said I'm doing what needs to be done to pursue med school.
I’m really good at
Words.
The first things people usually notice about me
Generally my eyes and my ass.

My voice is very trans-atlantic.

I appear "non-threatening".

"Your mouth. It always appears contemptuous. Even when you're smiling. Even when you're being tender. (Which is actually a lovely juxtaposition.)"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
In no particular order these are some things that consistently resonate with me.

Milan Kundera, Röyksopp, Radiolab, Tori Amos, Mad Men, Anthony Jeselnik, Jason Webley, Neil Gaiman, Margaret Atwood, Irvin Yalom, Rick and Morty, Röyksopp, TTC, Hayao Miyazaki, Above and Beyond, The X-Files, Damien Rice, Lelouch of the Rebellion, INK, Bourbon, Frank Underwood, Marc Maron, Richard Wagner, Conversations With Other Women, Bjork, House, MD, Damien Rice, The Last Five Years, Frank Sinatra, TedTALKS, Le Nozze di Figaro, Randall Munroe, Friedrich Nietzsche, Porcupine Tree, Lost, The Gotan Project, Dylan Moran, Tim Minchin, Richard Linklater, Amanda Palmer, Texas Holdem, Wine.

I very much enjoy good food but to me it seems cliche and perhaps even unnecessary to make a list involving tapas, sushi, etc. I'm allergic to onion and most peppers that being said beyond the scope of limitation inherent in those categories I'm in favor of adventure-eating and dining for pleasure. I'll throw down.

Burlesque (or anything tastefully charged with sexual tension), stand-up comedy, lectures, (especially with ones that touch closely to existential thought, human relationships, or the many nuances of healthcare) and fully immersive art exhibits or performances (think Sleep No More, Then She Fell, etc) are all excellent ways to spend one's time and am dutiful to that end often.

Anything tender, anything ruthless, anything that makes me feel infinite.
The six things I could never do without
This question bothers me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Merely, everything.

I spend many conversations with people wondering if I'll ever be tolerant enough to truly accept other opinions that are different from my own. There's a lot of hypocrisy that goes along with being intolerant of people that are intolerant.
On a typical Friday night I am
I spend a decent amount of time at Andy's (the jazz bar in river north). However I am not in love with their drink selection. (Why is the Green Mill cash only?!)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I prefer to reveal who I am through conversation.

But I am the sort that chooses Atonement over The Notebook. Furthermore, Gone Girl ahead of them both.

Also, I negotiate with my alarm clock.
You should message me if
you consider yourself self-aware.
