I'm currently in graduate school working towards a PhD in Analytical Chemistry. My plans after that include a post-doc (I'll decide where later), then get a job as a professor. If situations work out right (ie. finding a special someone), I might be able to find a part-time faculty position so I can spend time at home to raise a family.
Sometime I find it hard to name genres for some music. I like soft rock and jazz, and I enjoy some of the popular music on the radio. I generally don't like rap and country, but there are a few exceptions.
I play trombone, and I've called myself The Tromboness since high school because it's rare to find a girl that plays trombone. I like to get vocal music and transpose it to play on my trombone; I've performed "Believe", "O Holy Night", and "Don't Give Up (You Are Loved)" from Josh Groban's arrangements and "You Can't Hurry Love" from Motown's arrangment.
I love social dancing, and I continue to learn as I go to social dance club at BYU. I think dancing is romantic like in those Fred Astaire and Ginger Rodgers movies. I wouldn't say that I'm an expert (I've only formally taken one social dance class), but I'm pretty decent at following.
While growing up, my family played classic Nintendo games, and I still enjoy playing video games when I have the time. I love to sing in ward choir. I like to cook, sew, and knit. I also like to see movies with good humor.
About my personality, I'm generally shy and quiet with people I don't know, but when I get comfortable, I can be very friendly. From what I read from others' profiles, that seems typical. Some of my friends say that I surprise them how funny I can be when I say something they weren't expecting.
The basics I'm looking for in a guy that is a worthy priesthood holder that can take me to the temple, he can laugh with me, and he can comfort me when needed. For age range, I'm looking for some one born in the 80's. Some extras for bonus points include musical talent/interest and dancing.
Here's a message from my roommate:
This is a person that you do not want to miss out on meeting! She has a great sense of humor that will keep you laughing for a long time. She is also an extremely thoughtful person, always looking out for friends.
