My self-summary
I'm a linguist, a traveler, and an academic. I love all things social and cultural. I'm outgoing but also enjoy introverted or laid-back activities, such as movies or reading or goofing off. All in all, I consider myself to have a healthy balance of me- and friend-time.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a Ph.D. student in Hispanic Linguistics, so my life might be more consumed by work than I would like, but I still make time for friends and trips. I plan on becoming a professor and researcher, and I hope I accomplish my goal starting with IU. We'll see!
I’m really good at
languages, writing (at least sufficiently well), and having fun.
The first things people usually notice about me
how sociable I can be. However, I do have a shy side. It goes away as soon as a single connection with a person in the room is made, so first dates can be somewhat fifty-fifty. I like talking, but I prefer a guy who can keep up his end of the conversation, too. Showing interest in someone besides yourself is also important. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love a lot of books, movies, music, and food. I really prefer for you to talk to me and find them out. This sort of question takes the fun out of a good conversation.
Six things I could never do without
What a weird question; not a big fan, but I would say (in no particular order):

1. Coffee
2. My cat
3. A wardrobe that makes me feel good about myself
4. Traveling on a monthly or bi-monthly basis
5. Speaking another language daily
6. Working towards a goal

(And, of course, friends and family - but that one's obvious!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
my future. It's what motivates me. I've got the career goals in motion. Other goals, however, need some work (i.e., dating).
On a typical Friday night I am
reading a little bit, watching a movie or a show on Netflix, and then going over to a friend's house or out to a restaurant/club.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that you need to ask me yourself.
You should message me if
You should message me if you're interested in conversation about all things under the sun, could potentially meet me in the near-to-distant future, etc. I'm really upfront about everything. I expect the same. No matter what, though, I'm looking for friendships... or more.

The two of us
