While I was in a welding program, I would tell everyone I aspired to work on the California High-Speed Rail project that I could continue a long-time American tradition by being a Chinese railroad worker . I enjoy playing into stereotypes. Yes, I drive like an old Chinaman and we all look alike (I even have a picture to prove it!). I do have quite the sarcastic tongue and believe irony to be a great tool for humor.
At work and in the classroom, I'm outgoing and boisterous, but outside of those environments, say a bar or club, I'm terribly shy. I just don't know how to approach someone without context or some established commonality.
I like taking walks, hiking, snowboarding, whitewater rafting, and paintball. I'd go biking more, but have been too lazy to buy new inner tubes for my mountain bike. I long to go camping and fishing. It's been years since I've pitched a tent in the woods or strung up my rod (No, that's not an euphemism, but it probably should be!).
