...I can't make any declarations about who I am; I'm still figuring it out myself, but here are some things I like: I like (love) NPR. Morning Edition on my bus ride to work, Fresh Air on my bike ride back.
If I'm being totally honest, by the time I get home I usually pick up a book and hit the sheets, but occasionally I get a little practice on the piano in. I've been working on Rachmaninov, Debussy. I'd love to learn the Horowitz Carmen variation. CAUTION: If you can play that I will likely want to have your babies.
I read. A lot. Have any good recommendations? Or if anyone has read 1Q84 and thought it was good let me know; I'm too afraid to pick it up. Right now I've been reading a series of books that look into global finance. I think it's pretty interesting, but that's just me!
I do work out, but unlike most people less so when I'm single. If I'm not having sex with one guy, why bother having a six-pack? My friends inform me I should have the opposite psychology, but I figure this really only works in the favor of whoever becomes my beau. If we go out and I become more muscular over time, take it as a good sign. Oppositely if I'm inviting you to chipotle all the time, it may be near the end, but with chipotle as a silver lining who can really complain about that?!
I try to dream big. Like "one day I'll speak on TED," big. Like, "one day I'll have a swanky flat in the Marais," big. Like, "one day I'll perform Rachmaninov's 3rd piano concerto in pajamas, as part of my 'piano and pajamas' wildly successful global concert tour" big. Some of these dreams are more achievable than others...
I collect furniture. It's mostly Bauhaus era or mid-century modern. Eames, Noguchi, Corbusier and the like.
I took that okcupid test and got rated as a bachelor. I don't think that's true; I've been in love, and I'd like to be in a relationship again, but I'm not eager to jump into anything. It's not about being in a relationship with anyone for me, it's about finding someone who's worth being in a relationship with. Maybe that's why I rated as a bachelor?
Want to know more? Ask.
PS--A word to those people who write one-liner messages: I'll be as indifferent to responding as you were to writing.
