At the moment I am employed as a lab support tech at a local hospital. I like being employed. Not working makes me nuts. I'm in school full-time as a student in KU Med's Clinical Laboratory Science program (Class of 2016, second bachelor's, whee!).
I am a reader. My reading interests don't just include sci-fi. I get onto author jags where I only want to read one author until I'm sick of them or I can't afford any more books. At that point, I delve into the boxes of books I have stolen from my dad (it's like borrowing from a library, only my dad doesn't expect the books back), as we have very similar reading interests.
I sing. Not professionally, but I enjoy singing. People say I do it well. I am highly musically diverse. There are over 700 albums on my iPods/phone.
I don't drink often, and I really don't enjoy going to bars unless there's a specific reason or the bar is unique in some way, like Manifesto. I love the arts, especially dance. In fact, I like to dance. I'm not the world's greatest dancer, but I like to anyway.
Also, you should know that I have a penchant for really, really bad films. I love good films, but love me, love my love of stupid movies like "Bring It On" (the entire series), "Step Up," and others.
When I'm not working I'm reading. A lot. Trying to move more. You can be skinny as hell, but if all you do is sit on your ass playing video games, a blood clot can sneak up and kill you. A hard lesson to learn when a clot takes one of the nicest, most genuine people you've ever met off the planet. I don't plan on going out like that.
I'm a fantastic reader and I'm quite good at being a geek.
I'm incredible at learning languages.
I can micropipette like a fiend, and can whip up a batch of sterile TSA plates in no time flat.
Honestly, I have no idea. Unless you make it stupidly obvious to me, I have no idea what you're noticing.
Books: I'd have to go with authors. Jim Butcher, Christopher Moore, Henry Rollins, Greg Bear, Jasper Fforde, Philip K. Dick, Robert Heinlein, anything sci-fi, not so much fantasy . .. and I'll read nonfiction when it catches my eye. My nonfiction choices are subject to my whim when I'm at the bookstore.
Music, recently: MIA, Mumford and Sons, DAM, Avicii, Gogol Bordello, Nine Inch Nails, Trevor Hall, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Michael Franti and Spearhead, to list a few.
Movies: Wishing I had more time to see them lately. But ones I like are many and varied.
Top shows in my DVR: "Marvel's Agents of Shield," "The Big Bang Theory," "Law and Order: SVU," "Gotham," "Franklin and Bash."
Favorite foods: Pretty much anything from Asia. Three places I will always go if invited: Vietnam Café, Princess Garden, and Ruchi.
Yarn, crochet hooks, knitting needles. All three at once. I have mad Granny-Arts skills.
Lip balm with pronounceable ingredients.
It would be nice if, when you message me, you made at least a minimal effort to utilize the English language in a manner that isn't butchery.
