The one thing I am passionate about...
I am a nerd. I love science, art, and music. I have memberships to multiple museums as well as the symphony. If I am not learning, I am not happy. I love to travel and enjoy camping. I enjoy cooking, reading, eating really good food and drinking good wine. When I get a chance to share these things with other people is when I am at my happiest.
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy reading, no specific genera. I like to watch science fiction, real science, history, and the occasional kung fu movie. I really enjoy cooking, especially when I get to show off a bit.
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone that is curious and adventurous, that looks at the world with a sense of wonder and excitement. Someone that enjoys learning and does not feel threatened by what they don't understand. Kind, honest, loves to laugh, loves to travel, loves to eat.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Reading Lolita in Tehran
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I live in a time and location where I am allowed to pursue an education, a career and be independent
- I have found friends that appreciate and embrace me, idiosyncrasies and all.
- I have the opportunity to live and work in an area where I can pursue my passions.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Just because I am small, does not mean that I can be easily intimidated.
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Genuine, Intelligent, Rational
A little more about me
I tend to come across as quite and reserved at first. After I warm up to someone, I am outspoken, I laugh easily and loudly. I have a dark sense of humor. I am a feminist and am pro-science. I am a total night owl and have been working nights for the last 10 years. If I am waking up before 9:00am, it better be for something special/important. Also, it means that I return e-mails and messages at 3:00am.In a medical setting, I can speak halfway decent Spanish. When it comes to more mundane everyday topics, I'm worthless.
