I'm a grad student/mad scientist/professional internet browser. You'd be surprised how often you can dick around on the internet while you're pursuing a graduate degree. Then again, it makes life much more difficult when you have to get work done, so I try to stay off as much as possible. So at any given time, I'm in between writing, journal reading, lab work, and Cracked.com. Also, if you visit my office, you can typically hear me ask my co-worker: "What are we going to do tonight, Brain?"
Outside of work, I'm either blinking into the blinding light trying to figure out how long I've been sitting at my work computer, or trying to stay active. Soccer, softball, kickball, hiking, swimming, biking...really anything to give me an excuse to get outside. Careful though, if you leave me outside too long (ie 20 min) I turn lobster red and burn up. Also, when I'm not activity-ing, I'm trying to recover from the damage that BBC television has done to me and of course going back for more. I should probably come with a warning label...
What about you? Do you like baseball? Beer? Having adventures and trying to take over the world? Then probably you should give it a shot and shoot me a message. I also do like to develop new friendships, so if you have any interest in getting out doors or trying something new, let me know :D
Baking and cooking in general- kinda like chemistry but you can lick the spoon.
And if you meet me while I'm drinking, you'll probably notice a slight napoleon complex complete with me challenging guys twice my size to fight.
Also, it's a toss-up as to whether or not people take me seriously. Either they find me very intimidating, or assume there's very little between my ears. Weird, but whatever.

What kind of cereal would I eat the rest of my life?
When will I actually be able to get a dog?
How do tall people see the world?
Is there anyone that actually enjoys a DMV visit?
Also, we probably won't get along if you are incapable of choosing between they're, there, and their. Or you don't know what an oxford comma is. Or if you don't value education in general.
