My friends say I'm carefree and I tend to agree on most accounts. I've been told by a few acquaintances that I'm "surprisingly unexpected" followed by "don't worry, it's a good thing" as if I were the subject of a Yelp review. I'll allow it, but if it comes up again I WANT ANSWERS.
Channeling my inner Tony Stark everyday in the face of exciting new challenges and opportunities. I'll keep pretending engineering is actually as glamorous as it seems in cinema.
-Proper lane changes
-Partially accidental alliteration
-Paying attention to the details that matter
-Proofreading technical documents written in English by Italians
-Paying little attention to the posted speed limit without consequence
I read mostly technical publications. Actually, I read them almost exclusively. I'm a monster, I know... However, I do occasionally read other things. I enjoy my fictions with a healthy dose of magical realism, and I can burn through any good piece of dystopian literature fairly quickly, but I haven't really read any since 1984.
I'm a bit of a film buff and Netflix is my enabler. I'll certainly try to watch anything, but some movies I just can't bear to finish.
Some favorites: What Dreams May Come, Stardust, Gattaca, American Psycho, Gravity, Requiem for a Dream, LOTR, Cloud Atlas.
Battlestar Galactica (reimagined series), Adventure Time, Game of Thrones, That Mitchell and Web Look...
I think I have fairly eclectic taste in music, and my preferences seem to come and go in waves. I enjoy instrumental pieces fairly consistently, especially piano or acoustic guitar solos. A few favorites: Andy Mckee, Kotaro Oshio, Philip Wesley.
I enjoy quite a few artists spanning the many Rock sub-genres , some trance, some "indie", and some more offbeat things...
I'm an adventurous epicure that will try anything twice. No point in a list here, let's eat/make something new!
- Absurdity, levity, bad puns, and humor - Make it so!
- A decent internet connection - Netflix, image marcros, and cat photos
- Hypnagogia and the ability to fly in my dreams.
- Hot showers, warm towels, and freshly cleaned sheets.
- Why is half the IT office Russian?
- Would anyone buy a "lit-match" scented candle?
- What if there were a being that only lived for 10 seconds, but experienced it's life simultaneously through the eyes of every human on Earth?
- The fragile, ephemeral beauty of life.
-Not dying of hypothermia
-Cooking something awesome!
-Tinkering (Trying to make this plane fly!)
-Loathing that there was no daylight when I left work.
-Making new friends and reconnecting with old friends.
-Doing everything I can to stave off entropy's foul grasp.
