I'm a former competitive ballroom dancer, and have recently taken up Krav Maga and Kickboxing, both of which I absolutely love.
Staying active is important to me, as is being able to switch back and forth between stupid/random and intelligent conversation. Because who doesn't enjoy a little randomness in their life?
I'm in the middle of a 1-2 year postdoc right now, but looking to eventually move to the Boston area to work for a small to mid-sized pharmaceutical company.
I also enjoy riding my motorcycle on the weekends, but I'm not really a fan of riding alone so haven't been out much lately.
I can sing along to almost any classic rock song, but don't ask me to name the song or the artist because I will definitely fail at that.
I'm also a really good critical thinker, and I like poking holes in arguments. Sorry in advance if I do that to you, it's a bit of a bad habit...
Music, anything but rap really. I grew up on classic rock, I love 90s alternative, and I find progressive metal great for focusing at work. I also enjoy country, but need to be more in the mood for that!
For books, I love fantasy and historical fiction. I'm a huge fan of world building, especially when done without being super expositional about it, and I'll always give a book a chance if recommended by a friend! I'm also a huge Harry Potter nerd. I've never met someone who has read them more than me. Go on, try me!
I'm not a particularly picky eater. I have a few random aversions, but honestly I'll try most things at least once!
2) something to stimulate my brain
3) a non-work physical hobby
5) a pet (currently 2 bunnies!)
6) blue-spectrum/cool light bulbs
And why on earth the instruments at work behave better after a good night's sleep. You're a machine. You shouldn't need a nap.
