I now go to school at UMD for my PhD in physics, and while I'm not a huge fan of College Park, I do like DC and being further up north... with the exception of not being in Austin, TX. But having grown up in an area full of fundamentalists and seeing some of the follies of ignorance, I've come to really value critical thinking; I champion rationality and open-mindedness as much as I can.
Despite that, I am all for fully embracing my humanity even when it is irrational.
Oh and being a perfectionist; I'm really good at that... much to my dismay sometimes.
Movies: Amelie, V for Vendetta, Big Fish, Pride and Prejudice, and more.
Music: Yann Tiersen, The Killers, Les Miserables, and some more.
Food: I eat to live. I don't live to eat. Though I do like chocolate chip cookies, tomato and basil pizza, ice cream, and did I mention tomato and basil?
-Love from friends and family
-Acceptance from the ones I love most
-A new book to read/learn from.
-The back and forth of emotion and reason.
I think too much -- but have started concentrating more on physics.
Barring that... OK, you can message me if you wanna meet up, talk, play board games, go on an adventure, or just have a gay old time.
