I am very open-minded, intellectual and enjoy discussing and debating.. anything. I have a passion for sciences, especially the medical sciences. I enjoy the news. Reading, watching, listening. In fact if I am in front of a TV it is most likely on CNN, BBC, or Al Jazeera, but also Discovery Channel, Food Network, and HGTV. What can I say, I keep it interesting..
I also enjoy journalism and photography. The latter is one of my latent hobbies. I cook very detail-oriented meals. There is beauty in complexity, and presentation matters. Takes forever, but the gastrorgasm is worth it.
Working with children, teens, and young adults (teaching, tutoring, mentoring etc). I'm a people person so I relate well with people and communicate well with others. I can make friends with anyone practically as long as you are open to new things and new people that may differ from what you are used to. I am very good at making people comfortable and smile.
Exercise. I like keeping healthy and in shape. I am currently looking for somewhere in Baltimore near downtown to do some MMA or martial arts training. It's a good way to meet people, get in shape and have fun.
Debating. I love a good argument (in the intellectual sense, not the annoying bickering sense). I love discussing other peoples viewpoints and hearing my opinions challenged. As long as you pose a fact-based logical argument and don't make up truths, science or statistics (pet peeve), I would loveee to talk it out. :)
Falling asleep standing up. This one is a recent discovery. Turns out I can still practice medicine fairly successfully while inconspicuously somnolent. Life gets exhausting, ya know?
Movies? Lots.. I love film.
Shows? Too many to list.. I binge watch television as my side job.
Music? A variety. From Jay Z to Ludovico Einaudi to Florence + The Machine to the XX.
Food? I am a verrrry picky eater.. literally.. so you may hate me for that. Most importantly I dont eat seafood in any shape or form. The only meat I eat is chicken, beef, and very selective preparations of pork.. dont ask why, I dont really have a good explanation for why I am this way..
Drugs. Not the kinda that you can find in the mean streets of Baltimore, the kind that show up on board exams with long meaningless names like, Bevacuzimab.
a couple less concealed onces. Oops.
You value education and life-long learning.
I'd love to meet someone to do activities with.. eat, drink, cycle, explore etc. I really want new biking partners now that the warmth is approaching.
Most importantly, if you are constructive, productive, and live a goal-directed life. Or at the very least, be interesting... How hard could that be ;)
