My self-summary
Let's see. I have transitioned to Birmingham a relatively short time ago. I am a scientist. My parents still don't understand what I do and I am beginning to understand only somewhat.

I feel pressured to write more things about myself.

I am at my first real job. Everyday I celebrate another successful impersonation of adulthood ("Clean ALL THE THINGS!!")

I'd like to give a shout out to my students; no, you don't have to point out in class that you ran into my profile online; yes, I am a real human; no, I won't be friends with you on Facebook now; no, this won't be on the exam.
What I’m doing with my life
Making the science happen, one data point at a time.
I’m really good at
- Editing bad student writing and simultaneously maintaining sanity.
- Finding art in people's garbage -- the clean kind of garbage not the icky kind, well, you get the idea.
- Also, working, working a lot, and getting along with other people who work a lot, get it? :) Because, um, I work a lot.
The first things people usually notice about me
A three year old once told me I had "shiny eyes" - then proceeded to try to take them from me.

Six things I could never do without
1. A shower in the morning. Two words: water. pressure.
2. A coffee in the morning.
3. A friend to call.
4. A good nearby coffeeshop. Baristas whose names I know.
5. Climbing walls (literally, you know, in the gym).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Balancing authority and friendliness with students who are pretty much my age.

And food.

On a typical Friday night I am
I initially wrote "veggying" but let's face it, I am either out with friends, or working in a coffeeshop.

Okay, okay, truth: I am writing a grant while clicking cute cat videos on Facebook.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The most private things I'm willing to admit ON THE INTERNET is that my own profile makes me giggle.

If you are looking for good company.
Bonus points if you are a bit nerdy.
Minus points if you are crazy.

It's a complicated system.
