My self-summary
UPDATE:
I recently got back to Atlanta from a year living abroad in Saudi Arabia and I'm still trying to figure out what I want my life in the States to be. I've definitely given myself permission to step away from things that I've decided where non-essential to my happiness (like drinking and eating meat). As with everything I do with myself I'm curious where it will take me.

I really enjoy trying new things and suffer heavily from guilt associated with wasting time so I always try to be doing something. I read widely, I do random craft projects, I'm involved with campus organizations, I do a bunch of Tai Chi and Improv.

You can boil pretty much everything I do to either a search after an idea that excites me, something that I find hilarious or something that helps someone. That and pooping.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently doing a PhD program at Ga Tech in what is technically electrical and computer engineering but is actually something much more obscure and wonderful. It involves an unfortunate amoun of complicated math but at the end of the day it boils down to looking at how people spread ideas. I'm also trying to balance school with some sort of creative expression, mostly I do improvised theater and I dabble in writing.
I’m really good at
General absurdity. Reading pretty quickly. Telling stories.
The first things people usually notice about me
I think most people find pretty quickly that they just like me, cause I'm genuinely interested in them. That or people be like "who is this guy, he's crazy. Why is he making that face."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I have a large range of books that I love and spread to as many people as I can so it's hard to figure out favorites. Top contenders: Trout Fishing in America by Richard Brautigan, Joseph Campbell, Carl Jung, Dostoyevsky, Brandon Sanderson. I recently read Lines by Tim Ingold and the Art of the Stage by Stanislasvky. I had a good time with both of those books.

Movies: Most of the movies I watch are comedies and typically pretty stupid to balance out the crazy books I read. A lot of Will Ferrell, Kevin Smith. I'm also a huge sucker for kids movies like Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

Shows: Big fan of Parks and Rec, the Office, Brooklyn 99, Psych, Bob's Burgers, Firefly, SNL, The Chris Gethard Show, Monty Python.

Music: My taste in music is pretty eclectic, though it tends to run a little older. Most of the time I'm after something that I can sing along to, the rest of the time I'm pretty much after something to dance to. I recently started listening to The Smiths and I've been super into that.

Food: I love pretty much all food, though I'm adjusting to this whole vegetarian thing. Right now I eat a weird amount of peanut butter.
The six things I could never do without
1. Books
2. Conversation/Laughter
3. Nature
4. Family
5. Some sort of focusing practice, be it enjoying a cup of tea or meditation or tai chi
6. Improv
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Just about everything. How things work. How do I get better at things. How do I be a better me. A lot about people, both in general and specific. Most of my reading as well as my research is focused around people.
On a typical Friday night I am
Most of the time I'm destressing on Friday nights, especially because I'm out almost every weeknight taking classes. And by destressing I mean I'm asleep.
