Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm honestly all over the place interest wise, to the point I've
noticed its hard to invite all of my friends together because they
all think the others are weird. haha.
I'm on here looking for whatever really, if you want to go check
out a new restaurant i'm up for that, if you want to go hiking or
something outdoorsy that's awesome too. Dates are good too, but its
I graduated from Indiana University in Chinese language,
anthropology and religious studies almost 2 years ago >.<. I
visited the Bay Area for a few months moved back, lived in Korea
for a year, lived in Taiwan for 2 years now i'm in Grad school
The rest of the profile I've not updated in awhile, so
chronologically this thing may be a bit off. just a disclaimer

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well, As stated above school and more school is my life. I'm trying
to broaden my social horizons, but sometimes doing well in school
tends to interfere which majorly sucks. Also, I'm big into
meditation/self-introspection (more philosophical than religious,
although I do borrow heavily from Buddhist/Taoist/Hindu thoughts as
well as science, like trying to even understand the
universe/parallel universes/string theories). Basically I do this
to help make myself a more centered, adjusted, and stress-free
I've also taken a certain fondness towards downhill skiing lately
and would like to learn more and mountain biking is pretty damn fun
(both these sports I'm pretty new at).
"Every religion is true one way or another. It is true when
understood metaphorically. But when it gets stuck in its own
metaphors, interpreting them as facts, then you are in trouble."
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
i like to cook a lot (i'm partial to making curries, mostly indian
and burmese influenced) and do some painting/drawing on occasion,
keeping things neat, and decorating oh and worrying too much about
my ideal future job (as in what the hell it'll be) haha :-)
....honestly i'm just a big academic (folks have even called me an
academic snob) so i don't really have time to get really good at
things besides writing papers >.< (In other words "I'm a jack
of all trades and master of none")
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People usually are drawn to my hair for some reason...to the the
extent of "Jimmy's sexy and has awesome hair" shouted at me across
campus. But I really hope that people notice my smile and general
happiness/friendliness most of all.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I'm not usually a big
fan of American, except if its fresh and healthy (somewhat
oxy-moronic I know), but I do love my Italian Beef, Antipasta
Salads, Reuben, Chicago Deep Dish, and Bleu Cheese Fries (what can
I say i group up near Chicago)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Academic Stimulation, Good Friends, Family, Good Food, Tea, and my
Jogging/yoga fits in there somewhere too...maybe i'll consider that
a good friend
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
my future, what I should do with it, if a boyfriend fits in or the
other way around? Also, I think a lot about the true nature of
reality...and what exactly that even means...
I also wonder why people on cupid who claim to be happily dating
are even on a dating site. I wonder if maybe they're really looking
for the the next best thing?
When we yield to discouragement it is usually because we give too
much thought to the past and to the future. ~Therese of Lisieux
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't have typical Friday nights. I just do random things,
sometimes I'll stay in sometimes I'll go out to random events my
friends are into, like concerts, bars, some kind of BDSM gathering
haha (not into it, just go to support friends. :-) I come from the
land of Kinsey Institute).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really like certain kinds of Gospel music especially Etta James'
rendition Swing Low Sweet Chariot...I also like bluegrass
I'm secretly a Wasian. That does not mean Rice Queen in the least
bit. I've been to Asia and had Chinese men pawing at me only
because of my blonde hair, flattering at first, but quickly leads
to feeling objectified and less than human, so I know how it goes.
I simply like Asian food and learn about Asian cultures. I probably
feel more comfortable in a Japanese and Chinese grocery than most
others. Shrimp Chips ya!
Lastly, I have little fantasies of the bajillion spiders in my
house all gathering at midnight and dangling from the ceiling
waltzing with each other to Danse Macabre. (this is based off
reality though, I did catch them all partying in the bathroom one
