I'm also a straight edge hippie. I don't drink or do drugs, but I like sticking it to "the man" as much as the next person. I'm also acutely aware that as a white, heterosexual male who was privately educated since high school, I'll probably end up being "the man" by the time I'm 40. So, I try to keep the self righteousness to a minimum when I challenge the establishment.
I once told my mom I wanted to be a scientist by day and a ninja by night. Now, I have a PhD in biomedical engineering and I Brazilian break dance fight. My inner child is very happy.
I'm an engineer who desires frivolity. I'm a rationalist who revels in absurdity. I'm an idealist who grudgingly admires pragmatism. I'm a_______(noun) who _______(seemingly contradictory phrase). I'm a math nerd who enjoys MadLibs.
