I grew up all over the world. Some of my best memories are from diving in the Philippines, hiking in Bolivia, and the nightlife in Quito. I used to work in IT; I was pretty good at it but I wasn't passionate about it. I recently quit my job to go back to school full-time to study astrophysics. I am super happy and excited to be doing so. I am stepping into my favorite phase of my life so far. I'd love to have someone to share that with.
I like rain. I write poetry and am working on a novel which I think is actually pretty good. I love my dog more than anything.
I'm a huge fan of Blizzard games; really looking forward to Legion! I also love indy games, especially ones with a lot of personality. My rig is glorious. I'd love to meet another gamer.
I love Marvel movies. If you're Team Stark, we may have unresolvable issues. Ant Man was so much better than it needed to be.
I like Russian literature and the classics as much as H2G and LOTR. Was recently introduced to Terry Pratchett and I'm a huge fan.
I'm nerdy, compassionate, funny, and thoughtful, but I can be reticent, insecure, and a little hard on myself sometimes. I value communication above all other things, and work best with someone who is open and honest, values their personal space, but also really cares about genuinely connecting with someone.
I think this is my best attempt at a self-summary so far!

Music: I love classical and trip hop. Basically anything without lyrics. I enjoy EDM but I hate dancing (I'd like it if I was better at it and I hope to learn someday). Lately I have a soft spot for bluegrass/country. Anyone in my car agrees to be subjected to country.
Food: Spicy food. Literally, that's the only qualifier. I will eat anything if it is spicy. For example termites are surprisingly spicy. For the longest time I thought eggplant was spicy, until I realized that I am allergic to eggplant and I actually have an allergic reaction that is painful, which I mistake for spiciness. And yes, I still eat eggplants after this discovery.
