Day in and day out, Rachel always has a spot on my "World's Best Persons" list
Currently a graduate student in Biological Sciences at Notre Dame. Graduated from a university in Texas, majored in biology with a minor in the medical humanities. Wrote my Senior Honors Thesis on "Sublethal Responses in Pimephales promelas Following Sub-chronic Aqueous Exposure to Sertraline and Bupropion."
Me: a rather sarcastic, cynical, pessimistic, witty, computer illiterate, news junkie, gum-addicted neurotic intellectual, but, nonetheless, I have manners, and I can be really random at times.
I'm the oldest child.
Character references (according to my brother): Selma Blair's Vivian Kensington in Legally Blonde or Daria
I cannot walk out of Barnes & Noble empty handed.
I ♥ NY!
