My self-summary
I recently left a career in IT to go back to school to study astrophysics, which has been a long time dream of mine. I am thrilled to be at UMD in a great program with awesome teachers. I grew up all over the world and moved around a lot as a kid, and have made a lot of major changes in my life over the past 5 years, but after a long road I I've figured out who I am and what I'm looking for. I like space, science, video games, poetry, Russian literature, classical music, and cheap country radio. I love being excited about things but I am also prone to being quiet and thoughtful. I am an ENFP and I consider this to be a pretty accurate description of myself.
What I’m doing with my life
I study astrophysics at UMD.
I’m really good at
Fixing things. Pool. Listening to people and challenging them. Being ecstatic. Listening to cello music and brooding. Arguing. Certain computer games. Sentence fragments.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Lolita, Pnin, 100 Years of Solitude, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Hamlet, Calvin and Hobbes, The Lord of the Rings, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

Movies: Groundhog Day, Joe Vs. The Volcano, Lost in Translation, Pan's Labyrinth, High Fidelity, Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Shows: Doctor Who, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Futurama, Rurouni Kenshin, Home Movies

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.
The six things I could never do without
The Internet. Dave's Insanity Sauce. Dogs. My computer. Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman. Stars.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My future. The cosmos. Where I'm going to get lunch.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing homework. Interneting. Writing the next great American novel. Gaming. Reading. Sentence fragmenting.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm scared of driving! But I've never gotten a ticket or been responsible for an accident. I just learned pretty late in life so I've never been too comfortable with it.
You should message me if
I feel weird telling you why you should message me.
