A Little Bit About Me
Salam! My name is Naved, and I am a graduate student/researcher at the moment - currently in the ABD stage (all but dissertation); so my life pretty much revolves around labs. Being in school this long has been challenging, but I do enjoy it, and hope to teach at a University someday, soon Insh'Allah.
I really enjoy good food - eating and cooking both. I could probably eat pastas everyday. Add seafood to it and I'm drooling. I do enjoy the traditional niharis and biryanis as well. And having grown up in Saudi, the kabsa's and kebabs are also my favorites.
Traveling is fun - born and raised in Jeddah, Saudi; been to India - originally from New Delhi and my family lives there now; lived in So. Illinois for a while, but used to go up to Chicago quite a lot - its awesome! Alabama is kinda boring now, but its nice and quiet at the same time, and since I'm v busy now, it sort of works out. I was in Istanbul for a couple of days - that's been one of my most memorable trips and would love to go back to Turkey for a longer vacation. I'd definitely like to see more of Europe as well, and hoping to do some off the beaten path traveling also.
BTW, Spel chek is mi fraind :-)
What I Am Looking For
Number 5, small fries and a diet coke :-P
Okay, bad jokes apart, I think its hard to exactly specify what you want in a person, :-P. But someone somewhat smart, somewhat funny. Religion is important as well. Having said that, may Allah guide us all to the right path :-)
