My self-summary
After grinding away at my last 3 years of medschool in Florida, I am heading back home to Jersey for the month of July. After that I will be a wandering hobo living out of my car for my 4th year medical school rotations.

So about me...I guess I am looking for a partner in crime. If you haven't guessed from my profile pictures, I'm kind of weird. But really, who wants to be normal anyway? I sometimes think that when I'm 85 and look back on my life, what is the story I want to tell? Hopefully it'll be some combination of Indiana Jones and Zombieland. But I find that is the best thing to consider when trying to make big life decisions.

So I have a random array of hobbies. I like exploring creepy abandoned places. I can cook.. I know how to ride a horse, I know Brazilian jujitsu, I have performed stand-up comedy, I can ski on both land and water. I used to play lacrosse in college. I recently took up paintballing. Also, I am a certified scuba diver. Hopefully I'll be able to go wreck diving sometime in the near future. Some hobbies I would like to add in the near or distant future: kite surfing, archery, baja racing, and paragliding. But don't let that fool you. I am more than pretty nerdy.

If you haven't guessed my sense of humor is kind of warped. I am a pretty sarcastic person, but really I'm a hopeless romantic at heart. My life motto is do whatever makes you happy and to hell with what everyone else thinks. And don't feel the need to change who you are because of what other people think of you.....unless you happen to be Adolf Hitler. That last part is an important detail. I like to take life as it comes at me, and I really don't like being bored. I am the kind of person who wants to see and do everything. I want to base jump off cliffs, dive the Great Barrier Reef (though unfortunately it might not exist in a few years), trudge through a rain forest with nothing but a backpack and a machete, scale mountains, and wander foreign cities at odd hours of the night with no idea where the hell I am. Guess I need to leave some mystery behind me so I guess I'll end this...........now.
What I’m doing with my life
Attempting futilely to get enough sleep while becoming a doctor.
I’m really good at
Sticking it to the man.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm tall? Apparently guys on here lie about their height? I am actually 6 feet tall. Other than that, I don't know you'd have to ask them. Well, I have been told that I resemble Neil Patrick Harris (See Halloween costume photo)....I have also come to realize that I have an extensive array of photos of me in various tuxedos and tophats.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: World War Z, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Ender's Game, Dune, and Snow Crash...Wait do comic books count? I mean they are in book form! In that case, most things by Warren Ellis, The Walking Dead (Yeah, that's right. I was into the Walking Dead before it was a tv show *puts on hipster glasses*), 100 Bullets, The Boys, Deadpool, and Batman.

Movies: Star Wars (The prequels do not exist in my world), Indiana Jones (the THREE movies), Nolan's Batman Trilogy pretty much any zombie movie, Tarantino films, Inception, Scott Pilgrim, anything made by Guy Ritchie, and, of course, who could leave out Tommy Wiseau's magnum opus: The Room.

Shows: Breaking Bad, Burn Notice, Community, The Wire, Boardwalk Empire, Archer, Game of Thrones, Arrow, Futurama, Rick and Morty, Firefly, Babylon 5, Farscape, Stargate (Yeah, So I like sci-fi).

Music: I've got a random assortment spanning many genres on my computer. I've been desperately trying to broaden my music selections after I realized I listen to the same stuff over and over again. Most recently I've been listening to Muse, the Killers, the Strokes. I have really horrible taste in music, so I don't judge anyone based on what they listen to.

Food: Pizza and any pizza related product
The six things I could never do without
1. Dihydrogen monoxide
2. My eyes. Yeah life would probably suck without those.
3. Being absurd
4. Adrenaline
5. High speed internet
6. My sanity....oh wait....never mind
6. Pizza
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The mysteries of life. How unfathomably large the universe is and how there may be untold numbers of advanced civilizations out there with entire histories we will never see or hear about. What exactly would I do if I had a time machine.
On a typical Friday night I am
I am a firm believer that if you have a "typical" Friday night, you're doing something wrong. On that note, I'll pretty much try anything once, and provided I don't die...twice
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I'm driving my car and bored, I sing along to the radio in a horribly parodied voice of Eddie Vedder, regardless of whatever song is playing. I was also infamous on reddit for like one whole day.
You should message me if
The question "Who shot first?" means anything to you,
If you are the exact opposite of whatever the hell "down to earth" means,
If you think jumping out of an airplane or diving off some cliffs constitutes a romantic evening.
If you understand the merits of having your own zombie plan
If you'd be up for doing any of these
If you do not have/want children (I am sorry but I am in no position in my life right now to be able to handle children or even consider having them in the near future.)
Also typing more than "Hi" or "How are you?" helps.
