I play piano and I sing. I also like to play chess although I must admit I am terrible at it! I enjoy writing, which is good because, as a graduate student I do a lot of it. I also enjoy memorizing poetry. I can recite 150 lines of Paradise Lost from memory, among many other poems. I read Spanish, Latin, and some Hebrew. I can sing in all of those languages, plus Italian and German.
