My happiest place

Rachel Maddow,MSNBC
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!
