-- I plan on being in the Bay Area for most of the rest of this year, except for a work week in Shanghai and a vacation week in Hawaii.
-- Except when traveling, I'm now in SF nearly every weekend visiting friends, chilling in Golden Gate park, hitting up museums or the zoo, whatever :).
A friend and yoga teacher of mine recently mused, "Adam, you are one of the most human people I know." I was very honored.
Others have noted that I'm particularly transparent; I'm hardly emo, but I share my thoughts and feelings pretty openly and -- for better or worse -- I'm apparently rather easy to read.
And, like, many of us, I'm full of contradictions. Most people see me as a gregarious extrovert, but in reality there's a lot of introvert in me, and I much prefer small gatherings to large parties. I worry about the human race, yet I generally assume the best of every individual I meet.
Okay, enough of the deep stuff and onto lists!
- DANCE: I love lindy hop (swing dancing)! The music, the people, and the lessons I've gotten in confidence, listening, posture, and more... all awesome!
- MUSIC: I am a longtime albeit somewhat-lapsed musician... a pianist and composer. While sadly all the recordings of my classical and jazz performances are gone, you're welcome to check out some of my medleys, improvs, and compositions.
- TRAVEL: I am grateful to have been able to travel a ton these last few years, and have now visited over 30 countries and taken thousands of photos. Upcoming travels include Portugal, the UK, Spain, and China. I'm also hoping to visit New Zealand one of these days for hiking / kayaking / relaxing. With all that said, I still really crave just curled up with a book at home (currently: "Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell").
- CURIOSITY: I am never bored. There's always too much going on in my head... ideas, dance steps, musical phrases, dreams, and a never-ending to-do list.
- FOOD: I get seriously excited about food! I'm like Remy in Ratatouille (but alas without the same culinary talents). When living abroad, my host mom quickly learned not to ask "How was your weekend?" but "How was the food?"
