Hello.... I'll try to think of something more interesting than 1) my favorite food is probably raw sweet potatoes and raw guacamole... 2) I'm completely indecisive... 3) i've never been the best at making organized lists or practical schedules... ok... um, once upon a time i was obsessive compulsive... i'm incredibly awkward when it comes to questions... i was being interviewed by a panel for a summer internship when they asked me to describe myself... I mentioned INTP (received with blank expressions)... then I mentioned OCD and tried to explain how those anxiety driven habits would lead to a very meticulous lab book... i wasn't hired. I probably shouldn't reveal all of my idiosyncrasies... but after reading through some of the threads on typology... i feel a little more sane (I don't mean that in a negative way at all). For a period of 4-5 months (way before I become vegan/raw) I would only eat sunnyside vanilla yogurt, plain english muffins, and crumpets.... I typically carry some sort of bag of food with me everywhere I go... including Mexico and Russia.
I played 5 sports in high school... was on a marathon team- herniated a few discs... play tennis for my current school... enjoy cycling and hiking. I admire ultra runners.. and wish I had the symmetrical anatomy and time to be one. If anyone knows who Helen Klein is... kudos to you!... I'd rank her above Dean Karnazes any day.
For those of you who tend to isolate yourselves- Solitude: A Return to the Self (by Storr) is one of my favorites Brave New Brain by Andreasen is another favorite, as well as Encylopedia Neurotica.... for fun: Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.
I've changed my major every year... so far I've remained in the sciences... math is my favorite... tutoring calculus was one of the few times I felt outgoing. For a moment I considered majoring or minoring in creative writing... but no. Currently, it's bioengineering.
