I'm a curator of natural history and a paleontologist. My main area of expertise is raptors and bird evolution. I'm really interested in learning how Chris Pratt trained that team of Velociraptors to work with him. I think that I've got one of the coolest jobs in the world and there are plenty of 5 year old kids who would agree.
I love a good game night and have one every week. Board games are fun. A favorite one I played recently is called Takenoko. There's a little panda who runs around eating bamboo just about as fast as that cranky gardener can grow it. Super fun!
I also like practicing the guitar for the day that someone wants to start a band with me.
I like making things.
There's so much more that I could write here...
I'm going to say it's how awesome I am...?

If I'm over-thinking a situation.
Also traveling. I want to do a lot of it, visit every state and as many countries as possible. Plus, sometimes you just need to get away, even if it's just for the day.
-At or hosting game night
-Out to dinner with friends
You have a mildly unhealthy interest in board games, Star Wars, Doctor Who, and/or Harry Potter.
Or you want to join my intramural Quidditch team. This is a real thing...
