What I’m doing with my life
Masquerading as a productive member of society during the day, working a job whose definition I can't quite define at a tech company that is pure awesome. I also recently picked up the piano again, and I'm sure my neighbors don't appreciate me slowly working off the rust. I play kickball sometimes in an amateur league. And when I can I try to squeeze a few hours writing a novel. Very rarely, I sleep.
I'm trying to make every day an improvement- sometimes I succeed, sometimes I fail. But I just have to keep trying, right?
I’m really good at
I specialize in getting song lyrics stuck in your head, referencing
pop culture, and making jokes that make you visibly wince at how
awesome (read: terrible) they were.
The first things people usually notice about me
My ambiguous features which don't quite fit any one demographic.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've always loved reading, and have been since I was a kid and picked up the Count of Monte Cristo off the bookshelf in class one day. I love all kinds of books, from history texts to philosophy, but my all time favorite genre will always be Fantasy.The Kingkiller Chronicle, Harry Potter, The Wheel of Time, the Dresden Files, The War of Art, A Song of Ice and Fire, The Charisma Myth, and Tigana are some of my favorites that I recommend to everyone and anyone.
The Prestige, Training Day, and Ace Venture 2: When Nature Calls are probably my favorite movies of all time and anything similar to those 3 I'll happily watch and rewatch. I also enjoy watching stuff get blowed up real good everywhere like in Expendables 2.
TV wise - The Wire, Hannibal, Archer, the Simpsons, Flight of the Concords, Once Upon a Time, How I Met Your Mother, Doctor Who, Sherlock, Mad Men, Battlestar Galactica, Supernatural, Breaking Bad, and House of Cards.
Musically, I'm always listening to something different- the Black Keys, Reel Big Fish, Billy Joel, Eminem, the Eagles, Muse, My Chemical Romance, Green Day, Maroon 5, the Aquabats, Fall Out Boy, the Fray, etc.
The six things I could never do without
1. The bear necessities- H20, O2, and the people who make up my
social support group (aka friends/family). I swear this counts as
2. The look on someone's face when I've made a terrible pun.
3. Caffeine. Legitimately I might die without it.
4. The internet. I get paid to do things with it.
5. Rice. I'm Asian- stereotypes exist for a reason.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
, bad puns, planning out my next trip abroad.
I just came back from Europe and I'm already planning my next
adventure (East Asia sounds nice). And having a travel companion is
never unwelcome. :)
On a typical Friday night I am
Enjoying nights in half the time, the other half doing my best to be social and not fall asleep standing.
You should message me if
-If you like traveling alone but think a travel companion would also be pretty neat.
-If you've got a favorite board game and you need a willing participant.
-If you want to grab a drink and talk. Good conversation is a treasure that money can't buy.
