I'm from Long Island but I usually say Strong Island to sound edgier.
I want to travel to all the continents while I'm able.

I really like hip hop so you should at least be able to tolerate it.
(*edit: I know and regularly think about "problems" or "flaws" in contemporary mainstream hip hop but divorced of larger context/critical thinking, rap-bashing is useless.)
I am known to go on Wikipedia binges.
Laughter is like a natural painkiller. I love memes and random Internet comedy. I like comedy in general.
I used to think being a realist meant being an pessimist, given the sheer number of how many sucky things there are in the world. I'm slowly changing that frame of mind. I'm starting to realize that true happiness is a choice, regardless of external circumstances. This is a very freeing notion for me.

I love this quote:
“The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation. For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you."
- Neil deGrasse Tyson
I'm not impressed, nor do I think it's cute, sexy, or, different, when people describes themselves sincerely as "nerds." Why?
"…nerds...are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff… Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself love it. ...when people call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is ‘you like stuff.’ Which is just not a good insult at all. Like, ‘you are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness’.”
― John Green
