I'm down to earth and even-keeled. I have a good sense of humor that is mainly sarcastic and self-deprecating. If you can't laugh at yourself, then you're taking things too seriously.
I enjoy meeting new people and having good conversations. While talking about where people are from, what they do, and what they do for fun is a good place to start I enjoy talking about what makes people tick. Everybody has a story and things that make them unique.
I'm trying to make myself into a more well-rounded person. I've taken up cooking with good results, I work out regularly, and I always try to learn something new everyday even if it's just random trivia (did you know that the weight of all ants on earth is about equal to the weight of all the humans in the world?).
I like going out on adventures and love the outdoors but I prefer getting together with a small group of friends playing board games/video games/watching movies/cooking food rather than bar hopping and going to clubs.
I'm looking for someone who doesn't take herself too seriously and can enjoy a night of board games and hanging out just as much as going out into world for an adventure. I value honesty, open-mindedness, and kindness in the people I meet.
I'm a second year grad student in Biological engineering. My work focuses on developing cheap and simple diagnostic tests for the developing world. The work can be frustrating at times, but I'm glad I'm working on something that has the potential to help a lot of people who usually don't have access to good healthcare.
I'm an assistant coach for my old school's squash team and try to play as much as I can. It's a great game that I enjoy teaching it to new players.
When I'm lazing around at home after a long day at work I like to read, cook, play video games, and talk with my friends.
