My self-summary
I’m a really odd bird. I like to think there are a thousand different ways for me to start this, but at least this way we begin our potential relationship, platonic or otherwise, with honesty.

For starters, I spend a lot of time thinking about souls, like if I even have one or not. I've concluded that if I did, it would probably be older than dirt. That's what people who believe in souls tell me anyway, like when they grab my hands, look into my eyes and tell me that the chakra by my bunghole is red and that the one by my forehead is ultraviolet. I try to remind them that testing for radioactive decay on something ethereal like a soul is impossible, and therefore their appraisal is unverifiable. But then they usually just tell me I need to chill out more and do yoga, to which I tell them they shouldn't appropriate other people's cultures for personal gain.

I wonder a lot about my soul's characteristics, what it might sound like if I plugged it into an amplifier, if it's really the translucent paisley color I hope it is, or if it's the same soul I've had from when I was three or whenever, from when I had the cognitive capacity to envision that I have something inside of me that exists before and after I die other than my poop. I wonder if my soul has feelings. I wonder how much it would be worth on ebay, or if it believes in Jesus. I wonder if it ever doubts its own existence, or if it gets disappointed when I'm sad, or when I lie, or when I vote without doing all the research, or if it escapes a little when I sneeze. I wonder if my soul feels shortchanged for inheriting my body, or if it's proud to be my lifelong companion, even at those times when no one else is.

But even after thinking about all this, I don't know for certain whether I really have a soul or not, which is to say, I don't know if I could ever be your soulmate.

But I do know that life is absurd and that it's better with friends, and that I would love to be your new friend. We could keep it at that, and that would be awesome, or even hit it off well enough to someday discorporate together into the sunset.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching English as a foreign language. I love my job as the world often comes to me through my students, who come from as far as Korea, Saudi Arabia, Switzerland, Japan, Spain, Argentina, Italy, Taiwan... and I have a blast in doing so. The best part of my day is learning about the world through them, and finding those little things that unify the human experience (like that everyone hates the DMV).
I’m really good at
Grammar - I have to be. Dangling participles, mixed conditionals, indirect object relative pronouns and their prepositions...
Editing - I am the best set of fresh eyes if you need someone to double-check a resume or thesis or short story or poem...
teaching - people tell me I have a flair for explaining boring things in ways that help people care.
dancing - salsa, merengue, bachata
music - guitar, bass, drums, harmonica. I'm also pretty kickass at karaoke.
The first things people usually notice about me
My nose ring, my bohemianism, my ethnic ambiguity.
Later, that a lot of my friends are from outside the United States.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins is my all-time favorite book.
Most recently I've finished Justice: What's the Right Thing to Do? by Michael Sandel and A Mercy by Toni Morrison, both of which I would highly recommend (Michael Sandel has free Harvard lectures on youtube, and Toni Morrison is just, wow). I'm also trying my best to finish House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski.

The Good the Bad and the Ugly is my all-time favorite movie.
Others include Y Tu Mamá También, Do the Right Thing, Lost in Translation, When Harry Met Sally, and It Might Get Loud.

All-time favorite songs include "Love Has no Pride" as sung by Bonnie Rait, and "Fuck Da Police" as sung by Ice Cube, MC Ren and Easy-Mothafuckin'-E. But my life would be incomplete without Stevie Wonder, Led Zeppelin, Norah Jones, Hendrix... and I spell country KSON.

Mad Men, South Park, Breaking Bad, Parks and Rec, X-Files,

Pescatarian anything. I know the best Korean and Japanese places in San Diego and I would love for you to prove me wrong.
Punjabi Tandoor.

I'm addicted to academicearth.org. Like I would mainline that shit right into my eyeball.

Most recently:
Knowing that I try to be a good person because that's who I want to be, and not because there's some sort of cosmic scorecard keeping track of everything. There probably isn't. No expectations, just be good and do good.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Grammar, food, global news and how it's affecting the people I know.
On a typical Friday night I am
I won't be coerced. On a Friday night I'm at home with netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can't walk and zip up a zipper at the same time.
I can change a flat, write a sonnet, debug a computer, patch a hole, drive a forklift, run a decent mile, carve a turkey (even though I don't eat it)... but fucking zippers, man.

You know the difference between less and fewer.

You don't speak with a rising intonation that makes you sound like you're always asking questions?
