I'm kind of an Amy Pond. What I really want is a Rory.
Also I have an extreme appreciation of big words and I love to combine them in non-traditional ways so you may occasionally hear me refer to my sleeping roommate as my hibernating habitation partner.
I guess I come off a little serious here, but I can assure you that my silliness is often commented upon. I laugh really loudly. Like... really. That kind of laugh where people turn and look at you. I can't seem to help it.
I love to tell stories about my life. Some of them are cautionary tales. One of my friends from school once told me that she was going to cancel her cable and just listen to my stories. That made me giggle.
About a year and a half ago I started doing pole fitness. It is seriously the best thing that's ever happened to me. I've never enjoyed working out but this is something that I can be passionate about and enjoy while getting in shape. It is amazing and I love it. Yes... I can do a striptease. No... I don't take my clothes off for money... but I have thought about trying it.
My new favourite chemistry related pick up line: "you're what happens when copper and tellerium form a compound."
Eventually I want to become an instructor/professor. I used to teach high school and junior high and I really love teaching but hate the public school system.
I'm still getting used to Van. I like it so far but I'm still feeling a little out of place because I don't have all the furniture I need and I don't have a vast web of social connections with constant things to do. I'm sure that will come with time.
Movies: I don't really have favourite movies. I mean... I see movies and like them but probably the movies I remember most are the ones I saw when I was a kid... Disney movies... and Star Wars... and Back to the Future...
Shows: Firefly... Community... Doctor Who... How I Met Your Mother... Archer... Sherlock... House... But mostly Doctor Who.
Music: Well, anything really. If you put my iPod on shuffle you might hear an indie song, metal, classical, pop, country... all in a row really. I grew up playing music and singing and I love it all.
Food: I like to try new things but I don't get to very often because I am a grad student (synonym: constantly broke). I love to cook though so sometimes I try new stuff at home, but cooking for one is no fun.
I think the only thing that I would not be able to survive without is sarcasm.
... how fantastic the world is and how amazed I am that it works the way it does
... how to apply nanomaterials to chemotherapy drugs to make them safer for consumption
... the fact that most of the stars we see at night are already dead by the time their light reaches us
... many other deep and intelligent things
... why the hell my cat can't cough up his damn hairballs somewhere without carpet
... what would happen if I randomly dyed my hair pink
... how many more times I can hit the snooze button before I'm late to class again
... how long I can avoid calling my mother for before she starts to freak out
... many other random things that are neither deep nor intelligent
-Hanging out with some friends
-Aimlessly surfing the internet
-Cooking dinner for some friends
... you really like sarcasm.
... you're the kind of person who would call me up to go for a walk around the city or a drink or a coffee at midnight on a Wednesday just because you couldn't sleep.
... you are going to write something more than "hey" or "what's up"
... you're okay with something a little more casual and seeing where things go.
... DON'T message me if your idea of a pick-up line is "I wish I was your homework so you would do me all the time."
