Bus Stop Hooligan #2
8 May 1987
I'm 23, male and a recent college graduate with a degree in biology. I am also an atheist vegetarian who likes science, history, books, buildings, and other complicated or pretty things. I grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan, went to college in Chicago, and currently live in northern California. Unlike many Midwestern expats in this state, I like the Midwest and want to go back. I stay in a suburb, which I hate, and frequently go to San Francisco, which I can't make up my mind about.

My journal is filled with ramblings about whatever's on my mind. Occasionally it is interesting, and most of the time it probably isn't. I only post friends-only when I'm talking about other people, which I usually do not.

My username is derived from the Russian name I picked in first-semester Russian. I no longer study that language, although I would like to go back to it someday. I am certainly not Russian myself.

Feel free to talk to me. I actually somewhat like talking, although I'm not very good at it.
