What I’m doing with my life
Law school. I'm also pretty good at budgeting my time, "All work
and no play makes Jack a dull boy" after all.
I’m really good at
things I try
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books? I majored in philosophy, and that I go to law school, so I have and do read. Always classics(otherwise I'd rather sit in front of a screen and get it over with in two hours).
Movies: I prefer something that makes me think or feel. Usually ends up being foreign, classic american, or recently I'm really into westerns. Forrest Gump, The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly, Amadeus, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Annie Hall, The Red Violin, etc. I've also can watch a chick flick and have some nice things to say about it after.
Shows:Curb Your Enthusiasm, Wilfred, King of the Hill, Jeopardy, Reno911!, River Monsters, and lately I've been sucked into the history channel consisting of anything from fascinating historical episodes to the always entertaining Ancient Aliens.
Music:Classical, Opera, Country Western, Blues("the blues ain't nothin' but a good woman on yo mind"), Bluegrass, Calypso, something I can dance to.
Food: Just as clothes are wearable art, food is edible art. When I use my hands to eat ethiopian I think of their notion of utility and how I can incorporate it into my own life. When I get freshly made tortillas I notice how it is pounded so I can see what pride looks like, and then how it tastes. When I eat Korean and get all those little appetizer dishes I am reminded of why I enjoy being a good host. When I drink wine I taste the beauty of the scenery that makes it what it is.
The six things I could never do without
A great book
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Anything and everything. Philosophy=love of knowledge
On a typical Friday night I am
enjoying wine/adventuring/listening to music/etc
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a hypochondriac. Most recently I've been doing some casual
working out, and last friday I had a lot more to drink than a
typical friday night. Upon wakening the next day I felt a bump
beneath my rib, which convinced me that I had either damaged my
liver or kidneys from drinking. This belief went on for a several
days until a friend of mine who goes to medical school assured me
that the bump was in fact a stomach muscle, or "pack" if you will.
