What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am currently on an extended break from school, however, the
constant nagging from my mother to go back is starting to take its
toll. I am currently looking to change my major from Business
Administration to Nursing. I love people and I enjoy helping
others. Currently, I spend my time working as a manager for a
restaurant in Seattle. It's not what I plan to do for the rest of
my life, but it will do for now. As far as personal relationships
go, I have some great friends that I couldn't live without. I have
a little brother who can sometimes be a pain in the ass, but I love
him anyway. Mr. Right? Well, I'm sure he is out there somewhere.
Have I found him? I have met some great guys and some not-so-great
guys. I suppose it's all a part of the game.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I dislike answering a question that says, "What are you REALLY good
at...". It feels like boasting. However, if you were to ask my
friends, "What is something that Paul is really good at?", I think
that one common answer would be, cooking. I am
passionate about food. Learning about it, cooking it, and
definitely eating it. If I had to guess, I would say I own very
near 100 cook books >.< I'm very interested in the science
Though I am confident I can beat mayo into an emulsion with more
speed than any of my friends, I am sure that there are plenty of
great cooks out there. This is a dating site, and I'm sure if you
are reading this you are probably gay. Let's face it, the gays love
to cook :p
I guess that another thing I am really good at is, communicating.
It's a weird skill to list under "things I am really good at.."
but, I feel it deserves mention. I am quite comfortable meeting new
people and don't often find myself at a loss for words. I can be
quite humorous, I am told. Not only am I good at speaking, but I am
quite adept at listening. I'm one of those people you can vent
about your day to.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Oh gosh, I have no clue. I might say my lips. They are pretty
"lush" if you know what I mean. Also, I am short [only 5'5"]. After
one got to know me, they might say I am funny, nice, and
thoughtful. I am always putting other people first. I want to make
sure everyone is having a good time and will go out of my way to
try and please people.

Wow, this is gonna be tough. As far as books go, I really enjoy
historical fiction and fantasy. I like to be taken to a different,
more exciting place when I read. I really enjoyed reading, "In the
Company of the Courtesan" and "The Birth of Venus" both by Sara
Dunnant. I also own quite a few** cook books and
books on molecular gastronomy.
**see section "I'm really good at..."
I don't watch too much TV because I don't really have time for it.
However, I do love to have Golden Girls or The Nanny playing in the
background while I am working or surfing the net. [Got to love
YouTube, right?]. I used to love and watch Dexter religiously,
until the finale of season 4. After that, I was so irritated with
the show I couldn't stand to start season 5.
UPDATE: Thanks to my awesome roommate, I have been "sucked in" to a
couple new tv shows. I have been watching Grimm, Once Upon A Time,
Scandal, and Glee.
I love most food. Seriously. Well, I absolutely abhor Miracle Whip,
but I guess that is more of a "condiment".
If I could eat on type of food everyday, it would be Korean food.
It's the greatest. I suppose I am biased though, being that I was
born in Seoul and raised on it for half of my life.
One type of food I could probably live without, would be Mexican
food. I know, its weird. Everyone in Oregon/on the West Coast loves
Mexican food. It just doesn't sit well with me.
Oh, and I am not too fond of beans.
.... I guess I am a little more picky than I think :p
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, Friends, My phone, Internet, A kitchen to cook in, Air
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future. Where do I plan to be in 1 year, 5 years, 10 years? Am
I doing the right thing? Payroll. Schedules/Scheduling. Labor
Reports. Recipes. Do I have enough butter at home? WHY DO PEOPLE
LIKE MIRACLE WHIP??!? What am I going to cook for dinner? Where
should we go out to eat? Sex. Should I go to the gym for a second
round of cardio? How can people HATE cats--they are so adorable.
When will Apple make a phone that is shatter resistant?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Enjoying a glass of wine or ice cold micro brew at home/out on the
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
IF I told you, it wouldn't be so private... now would it?
