My self-summary
High point of my life: back when I had longer hair and a beard, I looked like Dave Grohl if Dave Grohl used a volumizing shampoo/conditioner combo. I was walking down 'the drag' across from UT Austin and was passing by the homeless church when one of them slurs "Yo dude its Dave Grohl" and without missing a beat I deadpanned, "Easy for you to say" right back at him. That was my finest moment. It's all really been downhill from there.

The most flattering things ever said to me:
-"You remind me a lot of Bill Burr"
-"Mr. P, you are WAY too smart to be a high school teacher"
-"And now for the ads brought to you by the ever-sonorous DJ Stirbar" (DONT JUDGE ME IT WAS A SCIENCE TALK SHOW)

As to what I'm doing with my life right now, just hanging around College Station finishing my Chemistry PhD (it is as time consuming as it sounds), but I'm still finding time to retain my sanity. I've got a dog who is big, great, and lazy (St Bernard mix). I'm ENTJ or ENTP depending on how I'm feeling that day fwiw.
What I’m doing with my life
I guess I should read headings since I answered this in the last section. Oh well.

But outside of labbing and the usual social things to do in college station, I've started lifting instead of just running. Thanks to this last week, I have a newfound love for running in the rain.
I’m really good at
Teaching! Well, more specifically, talking and making it seem like I know what I'm talking about.

Apparently I speak with authority and confidence or something like that.
The first things people usually notice about me
if its there, the beard

Or my voice, my voice is a bit deeper when it's allergy season. Drinking makes my deep east Texas accent come out a little bit, but years of theatre have hidden it quite well
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Man, I really wish I paid as much attention to music as I did when I worked at KVRX (college radio). Just to rattle of a few bands/DJs I'm still really fond of: DFA1979, Dan le Sac and Scroobius Pip, Erol Alkan, QotSA, Cut Copy, Justice, Black Keys, Beck, Fleet Foxes, stuff like that.

Books wise... Well, in the last month or so it's really just been me reading as much as I can from Marvel Unlimited. So good!

I will pretty much eat anything that I'm not allergic to (shellfish and tree nuts).

And really, I just have a list of TV shows that I've been told that I need to watch, but I have started watching Game of Thrones.

It.
is.
so.
good.
The six things I could never do without
Schlenk line, bike, coffee and something to make it in, Duke! (dog), cellphone, the fam.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to work puns into everyday conversation
On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with some grad school people, and if not that, probably sipping on some wine binging on some Netflix or whatever the entertainment du jour is.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
If you've looked at my orientation, I guess that counts?
You should message me if
If ya feel like it? I dunno. I can't tell you your business.

Or if you wanna grab coffee/beer and are thinking, hey this guy seems kinda cool.
