My self-summary
In a recent poll to see how people know me, I've been described as:

"effervescent"
"a bubbly, inquisitive, and hilarious young lad"
"R"
"dirty-minded, yet deep"
"those pants weren't made for men, were they?"
"a sweet old soul that eats fish"
and
"eccentric"

I also try to live by this: Nothing is either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm studying music and learning how to make a living as a musician. I'm also working towards a better me, a better understanding of myself, and the reconciliation of the reason and passion that is in my mind.
I’m really good at
Calligraphy. Hand copying music scores. Languages. Understanding all sides of the story. Giving advice. Viewing things spatially. Finding my way in new places. Picking up new instruments. Cooking.

Testing the limits of my mind: how far is "too far"?
The first things people usually notice about me
That I can actually speak English, then they get surprised that I'm actually not from around here.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I read when I have to or at a whim. Oh, books on music. Though not really a book, I enjoy Wikipedia surfing. Surprisingly profound children's books are also particularly enjoyable reads. Books on language, I dig those so much.

Movies: Les Parapluies de Cherbourg, Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain, Le Science des Rêves, Les Demoiselles de Rochefort, Jeux d'Enfants, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Amadeus, Shakespeare in Love, The Notebook, LOTR: Return of the King, Chronicles of Narnia series, Moulin Rouge, Amour

Shows: Family Guy, Mary Shelley's Frankenhole, American Dad, Nigella Lawson/Jamie Oliver/Jacques Pépin cooking shows and I don't watch much TV.

Music. It's what I do :). Oddly specific classical genres, though weird contemporary/popular music sometimes works.

Food: Canned foods. Especially seafood. And pickles. I enjoy gastronomical explorations of all sorts!
The six things I could never do without
Canned Fish
Something to blow on (mostly work related)
Good company
Music
A kitchen
Me time
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Hypothetical situations. Also called fantasizing.
Paradoxical situations. This I love.
Time. The past, present, and future. How they interact and how do I fit into it.
Men. Mmmmmm.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably cooking an exotic meal for myself or my friends or sitting on the couch listening to some fabulous music
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Really good burps/farts feel actually really good.
You should message me if
You want to. Go ahead. Just do it. Make it fancy. Entertain me.
