My self-summary
Hi! I am a recently moved to Utrecht, 01/11/2014, from Texas. I came here to do postdoctoral research at Utrecht University. I am very social and enjoy meeting new people and exploring new places. As this is my first time not only in The Netherlands, but also in Europe, I am sure that I will have plenty to see and do. My hobbies back in the States included several sports teams and concerts. I am currently looking for new hobbies here in Utrecht, but have had fun exploring the beautiful city. I am always interested in trying out a new bar or museum. I am currently learning Dutch. It is definitely a work in progress, but I can't wait to get better.
What I’m doing with my life
In my job, I am currently working on expanding my expertise in order to obtain a faculty position at the University level. Socially, I am very excited about the prospect of exploring and learning as much as I can about my new home. As this is the first time I have lived outside of Texas, everything is new and exciting to me.
I’m really good at
I am really good at making friends and socializing with people. I have been told that I can make a friend out of a brick wall. I also am good at not taking myself too seriously and having a good time no matter where I am.

The first things people usually notice about me
My sense of humor, eyes, my varying degrees of laughter, and I have recently been told my eyelashes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This section could be updated daily, it won't be, but it could be.

I am always torn between a book or shows. If there is a good book, I won't watch TV. If there is a good show, I won't read. Currently, I am reading the dark tower series by Stephen King. Its great so far. Very different from his other works. I am also watching Battlestar Battlestar Galactica during my lunch break.

My favorite movies are the same ones I can watch multiple times a year including, Good Will Hunting, Sideways, For the Love of the Game, Man on Fire, among others. I love a good horror movie, I love a bad horror movie. I also enjoyed The Godfather 1/2, Star Wars, Goodfellas, Donnie Darko, American History X, Blade, X Men: The First Class,, Star Trek, and most things done by Kevin Smith. There are really countless movies I have really enjoyed. I love going to see movies and do so often owing to the 4 dollar College Station tickets lol.

Sons of anarchy
The Daily Show
Breaking Bad (when it was on)
Dexter (when it was on and good)

I listen to a wide range of music. I used to say I would listen to anything but country music, but College Station has rubbed off on me and I will listen to some country every now and then.

Artist I enjoy listen to are:
Tool, A perfect circle, AC/DC, Bob Marley, Slipknot, Adele, Avenged Sevenfold, Marilyn Manson, Coheed and Cambria, CCR, Eminem, Jimi Hendrix, Lady GaGa, Jay Z, old Matchbox Twenty, Mumford and Sons, Rage against the Machine, Rob Zombie, System of a Down, Volbeat, The White Stripes, etc. My playlist includes texas country to old gangsta' (gangster) rap to Nu Metal to musical soundtracks.

Back in the states, I was a big fan of BBQ and Mexican; however, here I am enjoying trying out all the different food offerings. Something on my list to try is Herring; I hear that it is a "must try" when visiting Amsterdam.
Six things I could never do without
1) Family
2) Friends
3) Internet
4) Humor
5) Laughter
6) As of lately, a phone charger. Thanks iPhone 4s for dying all the time.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Lately, I have spent a lot of time planning trips to places in Europe that I would like to see. I would love to explore Amsterdam; I was there one day, but was very jet-lagged and thus didn't get to explore it much. I would also like to see Paris, CERN, the northern lights, Oktoberfest…the list goes on and on.
On a typical Friday night I am
On a typical Friday night, I am usually hanging out with my coworkers for what is called "Beer Fridays". People bring boxes of beer and we celebrate the end of the week. Then we typically go have dinner together. Thus far, it has been an excellent event and a chance to make new friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a big Smallville fan lol.
You should message me if
I love to chat and learn about new people, so if you are interested in chatting.
