I am passionate about everything mysterious and unknown - I love to study and learn about physics because in learning about physics I am learning about everything, on the most fundamental level. I live for that feeling of wonder that the world, in all its strangeness and beauty, can often inspire.
I'm a little insecure about making a profile like this in the first place - I don't really know what to say, and online communication is not my forte. However, I really would like to have this chance to get to know you and make new friends, and if I missed something feel free to ask me questions!
After college I plan to take a year off and find a job in physics - take a break, get some work experience, and pay off some of my student loans. I'll also be looking at grad schools, and the year after I plan to attend to earn a Doctorate in theoretical physics and become a full time researcher or theoretician in quantum physics and/ or astrophysics.
- I greatly enjoy singing and acting, and have a lot of experience in both.
- I am very good at listening.
- I enjoy problem-solving, in almost any form.
- I don't cook a lot, but I am very good at cooking the things that I do cook.
- I am good at gaming, particularly as regards d&d and LARPing.
- I am very good at focusing on one thing, though it is sometimes at the expense of other things I should be spending my time on.
That I am intelligent, calm, and passionate.

- the opportunity to learn
- somebody I care about
- my glasses
And alliteration, apparently...
This does not necessarily mean I would not have sex with a partner, or would not enter a monogamous relationship - it just means there would have to be a strong emotional relationship first.
