January 2013, sitting at my computer reading another article from work and I decide I miss the visual expression of me. Started twisting my hair. So this time next year I'll have a good start on my old locks. I cut my hair because coming back to the USA it's so common and seen negatively but I had them before they were popular and I felt more uniquely me.
OK my Self-Summary......Hmmmm? This is going to require some thought. Gotta love Siri missprinting so much of what I say giving the complete opposite impression of what I meant. Example, I am not a rap fan. Glorification of being a thug? Really? I would prefer hip hop, but I love Alt and country add a little pop. I have my "Metric" pandora channel. Check it out.
But mostly that I look youthful or the fair skin. Living on an island you would have thought I'd have gotten much darker?!?
Movies: I'm a netflix member so Ive gone thru their entire library( just kidding) Juno, Gran Torino, 300, Top Gun, The Notebook, Serenity, Serendipity, Almost Famous, Thank You For Smoking, Up In the Air, Seven Pounds, Avatar, An American Crime. The Breakfast Club, Secret Life of Bees, Reign Over Me, The Queen, Akeelah and the Bee, The Art of Travel, Slow Burn, An Officer and A Gentleman, Pushing Tin, PS I Love You, Driving Miss Daisy, Dead Man Walking, Valkyrie, Sex Traffic, Nothing But the Truth, About A Boy, Sunshine Cleaning, Amistad, Finding Nemo, Second Hand Lions, Holly, Cold Mountain, Couples Retreat,
Music: Pandora, on the iPhone, is my best friend and Live 365 on my laptop....Esthero, Feist, 30 Seconds To Mars, David Gray, Grand National, Paramore, U2( I feel on top of the world leaving their concerts), Poe, Tina Dico, Nikka Costa, Massive Attack, Shout out Louds, Chantal Kreviazuk, Tegan and Sara, Imogen Heap, kate, bush, Leonard Cohen, Morcheeba, Pete Yorn, Rod Stewart, Bif Naked, Journey(I hear they have another lead singer...crap, only Steve Perry can be Steve Perry),Florence and The Machine, Snow Patrol, Lily Allen, Neon Trees, Cold Play, Concrete Blonde, Joy Drop, Oasis, Plumb, Low vs Diamond, Matchbox 20, Pink, The Script, Jay Z, Joss Stone, Sade, Amy Winehouse, Baxter, blonde redhead, Carrie Underwood, The Church, etc...as of late I find some country truly fascinating. Country music is the only music as a whole that tells a story and you can hear every lyric. That's not always the case for most music especially popular and R&B as I hear different versions of songs when people sing with the radio. So funny.
Latest music additions Blanket by Urban Species, Stompa by Serena Ryder, and Stars by The XX.
Depends on my mood....I think Thai and Mediteranian food are my favorites. Add Italian to that list of favorites.

The next tier at work. Tech support is up and sideways. I work with iPhones and pads... learning Flash, Java, and C++
But mostly getting out of the country more or at the very least moving away from Atlanta.
And you have to love books and movies. And music and guy movies too.
Oh and be willing to get out and be active; hiking running, biking, etc.
