One day I put in a cup-o-noodles (with it's full sodium content) in the microwave and it reached krakatoan temperatures without so much as a warning (as ungentlemanly quick-cook noodles are prone to do). When I reached in to take it out, it spilled all over my hand making it look (temporarily, at least) like something you'd find in a 1980s copy of National Geographic with a special feature on Croatia.
On a slightly less insane note: I'm really energetic, driven, and ambitious. This means that when I find 5 minutes to have fun or relax, I will enjoy it to the fullest (and yes, this sometimes means staying in, cooking, and watching movies- grad school is exhausting!). I really enjoy discovering new things and learning as much as I possibly can about pretty much everything.
