My self-summary
I'm a 26 year old dude born and raised in the Chicago burbs.

I'm kind of dualist when it comes to pretty much everything. I can be totally laid back or super intense. I could be super logical and dry or empathic and warm (equal parts both at work). I could be lazy as hell or diligent, ambitious, and harder working than James Brown (bonus points if you get that reference). It all just depends on what's going, who I'm with, where I am, etc.

More generally, my philosophy is that it's OK to be wrong (and it's actually a good thing sometimes) as long as you admit it and try to find the right answer/path/whatever.

Also, I am brilliant, hilarious, and humble ;)
(sorry for the emoticon...)
What I’m doing with my life
I finally got an awesome job working in clinical psych and am currently honing my skills to move on to grad school in the next year or so.
I’m really good at
I think a good way to summarize me and my interests is the old adage "Jack of all trades, master of none." I'm pretty adventurous when it comes to trying new things and like to learn and experience almost everything. Even if I'm not very good at them or end up not liking them, I'll pretty much give everything a chance.

As far as what I'm "really good at," pretty much anything to do with psychology, science, research, and other nerdy stuff. I'm probably best at everything to do with clinical psych (which is a big part of why I love my job), but I try to leave that at work because it can complicate things when it comes friends and family.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure.

I think that the first thing a person notices about you says more about them than about you.

I'll eventually post a pic, so message me what you notice first about it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books (er, authors):
Mark Twain , Leo Tolstoy, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Terry Pratchett , Vonnegut, Philip K Dick, Jon Stewart ("Naked Pictures of Famous People" is hilarious), Jon Ronson, Sean Carrol, Howard Zinn, etc.

I'll listen to almost anything so I don't really know that I have any "favorites" but I really like Tom Waits, David Bowie, and Operation Ivy. Julia Nunes is pretty cool, too.

I'm pretty adventurous with food as well but I think my favorite styles fall into Italian and Japanese cuisine. Maybe I'll try more German stuff so I can get the Axis Powers trifecta.
Six things I could never do without
1. My cell phone
2. Internet access
3. My car
4. My Dogs
5. My family
6. The Lazarus pits
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-How to get into my top grad school pick.
-What the hell my patients at work are thinking (both from a clinical perspective and "WTF?!?").
-What would happen if the TARDIS went 88 miles per hour
On a typical Friday night I am
It depends on what's going on at work, how lazy I feel, what my friends are doing, etc.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't swim (very well).
Don't judge me.
You should message me if
You got all the nerd jokes and allusions in my profile.
