Non-science activities

I love to work out and do anything physical/sports related. My favorites are kickboxing, volleyball, fencing, and hiking the mountains of California. As a true Cali girl, the summer by the beach is my favorite place to be. I’ve already traveled the world a bit, but I want to go to so many more places, especially New Zealand, Antarctica, and Ireland. I’m a huge bookworm and try to read at least one book a month. My favorite genre is mystery/thriller, but I also like science fiction (if the actual science is at least plausible!) I also love to cook and bake, and my husband likes coming up with new crazy things for me to try to make for him. I adore all dogs and can’t wait till we move to a house that has enough room for at least two.
