That's me, condensed.
Two things that may give insight into my personality:
1) I have never owned a driver's license, and there is a good chance I never will. I feel that my tendency to daydream and get lost in thought, often walking off the curb, would be a hazard behind the wheel. Plus, I don’t see the value in purchasing something that pollutes the environment and I will constantly need to feed gas. I work hard enough to feed myself.
2) I own a potted, 8-foot tall ficus that I brought with me from south Florida. I have carried it in my arms, to and from, 4 out of the 5 places I have lived over the past 3 years. On the move from Bronxville to Yonkers, a muscular Hispanic gentleman wearing a white tank top and arms covered in tattoos, who passed by me four times as I was walking, stopped me and said, “You got something strong in you. I would’ve dropped that thing off a mile back.”
Also, I want to be a black swan. (This a more of a Nassim Taleb reference, than a balletic one.)
