General self-description[edit]

I'm very autodidactic and eclectic and love learning! The world is a fascinating place for me, and I'm so full of curiosity.

I keep myself very busy, am quite active, and rarely ever watch TV or movies. I like to read nonfiction books about topics that teach me about the world around me. I enjoy volunteering and have volunteered many places, including food shelters, mission projects, home restoration, and most importantly a 6-month bout with the suicide prevention and crisis intervention hotline.

Eventually I plan to go to medical school and hopefully practice endocrinology or maybe neurology or urology. I might even try to hybridize my expertise on HF and accident-causation in complex systems with my medical experience so as to help hospitals to be that much safer and reduce any sort of malpractice. I have studied a decent amount of Human Factors, systems complexity, systems safety, and accident-causation, mostly through an aviation paradigm.

While my college education has taught me to always be skeptical and take things with a grain of salt, challenging sources of information and credentials, I usually trust Wikipedia as a source of information for fields that don't require professionally edited, peer-reviewed, and published information. I hope that my additions and edits can help make it even better! So far (as of 02:11, 26 November 2014 (UTC)) I've only created two articles anew, Yentl Syndrome and Pancake sentences

Generally in life I mean well, and try to teach my friends and family stuff that I've learned, but occasionally this makes me come across as an arrogant "know-it-all," when really it's just that I'm a pretty big nerd and super excited about learning.

Among things I've studied and academia that I enjoy are:

  • psychology and cognition,
  • medicine (pre-med prerequisite classes), particularly anatomy and physiology
  • gender and sexuality, both of humans and of primates,
  • linguistics, chemistry,
  • physics,
  • percussion and instrumental music, composition, history and theory,
  • most of all, the interaction of all of the above

Pets[edit]

Including all roommates' pets...

When I was younger my family used to have a few ferrets, guinea pigs, and hamsters. Eventually I'd like to get a skunk, and maybe a few other safe, healthy "exotic" pets as house pets. Nothing stupid like a chimpanzee [1] [2] [3] or capuchin [4] like I used to want but now know is a horrible idea.

  1. ^ "Chimpanzees don't make good pets" [1]
  2. ^ "Why would a chimpanzee attack a human?" [2]
  3. ^ "Chimpanzees Are NOT Pets!" [3]
  4. ^ "The Perils of Keeping Monkeys as Pets" [4]

Languages[edit]

I speak English, French, and German rather fluently, and Hebrew, Latin, and Spanish to a small extent. I'm also working on Korean, Arabic, Russian, and Polish a bit.

Jobs[edit]

I have worked in food service, retail, groundskeeping/landscaping, as a bus driver, and as a dispatcher.
