Forum: Do you prefer talking or listening?
Hey everybody!

Are you more of a talker or more of a listener?

I'm definitely more of a listener. I usually prefer to listen and provide active responses when relevant. However, sometimes I feel like I let myself listen too much and not actually say what I'm thinking. I still prefer listening though.

How about y'all?

All the best,
Matt

Hey!

I definitely prefer lotion! The spray always irritates my skin.

Forum: Favorite Card or Board Game
Hey!

It's really hard to pick just one, but I think I have to go with Risk. Probably because I literally never get to play it so when I do I'm always really excited.

Forum: Age you received your drivers license?
Hey hey!

I got my driver's license when I was 16 and a half. I felt like I was behind, but turns out I got it a lot earlier than a lot of my peers. It was great to have though, even if I couldn't actually drive anyone for a year due to California's provisional license laws...

Forum: Public Transportation
Hey Anna!

When I'm in the bay area, I'll take BART. When I'm at school, I'll sometimes take the busses they have for us but usually I prefer to walk if I can get away with it. I don't take public transportation a ton because it kinda sucks in this country, but I'm grateful for little I do use.

All the best,
Matt

Subject: Day dreaming?

Forum: Day dreaming?
Hey everybody!

Do you daydream often? How have the things you daydream about changed over the years?

I daydream all the time, but I feel like they've become more and more banal as time goes on. For example, today I spent like two hours fantasizing about grad school. Namely, having my own room in an apartment, and being a TA for a class. Thinking about what I would say and do to make the class exciting and interesting. Most of the dream was just me being a good and competent teacher for a discussion section. I used to fantasize about adventures and power and fame, and now I feel like I've gotten boring!

All the best,
Matt

Subject: Re: Parties

Forum: Parties
Hi Anna!

I'm not a huge partier, and I really prefer smaller things like kickbacks. That being said, if the time is right and I'm in the right mood, I really enjoy myself! I just can't do it too often or I get bored haha.

All the best,
Matt

Subject: Paying for tests?

Forum: Paying for tests?
Hey everybody!

Do you think it's fair that college tests cost so much? I had to pay $205 today to take the GRE, which almost everybody who goes to grad school needs to take. And if I want to take it a second time, that's another $205 I have to spend. I get that they need to pay for their infatructure and labor, but $205 is absurd for an ONLINE TEST. I think it's ridiculous. How about you?

All the best,
Matt

Subject: Re: Warm weather clothes or cold?

Forum: Warm weather clothes or cold?
Hi Anna!

I definitely prefer cold weather clothing, but I've been coming around to warm clothes a bit more than I used to. I still prefer to be able to layer and I feel there a lot more options for cold weather clothes for guys than summer where it's basically just shorts and a tee/tank. Plus I like going all out and wearing a bunch of layers that look good. And I have an unfortunate obsession with jackets.

All the best,
Matt

Subject: How often do you get your hair cut?

Forum: How often do you get your hair cut?
Hey everyone!

How often do you get your hair cut? Do you do it at home, or go to a barber or salon?

I got a haircut earlier today. I'm pretty sure the last time was 4 or 5 months ago because I've been trying to grow it out. Typically I go maybe once every three months.

All the best,
Matt
