I'm a California transplant who grew up in Orange County. I
traveled across the country for school (Oregon), work (D.C.) and
then eventually made it to NYC. I lived in NYC for about five years
before I made a decision to leave my job, my house, and my friends
for a brief sabattical. Currently making my way through South
America but will eventually settle in Taiwan for a few months.
Looking to find some new friends and great food reccomendation for
a person who is going in to Taiwan without a clue.
-update: I've finished my travels, but now I'm just too jet lagged
to change my profile. Just wanted to give you the "411". Ugh, I
must be tired if I used the term "411".-
What I’m doing with my life
Coming back from my trip, I was lucky enough to start a new chapter
in my professional life. I currently run sales and marketing for a
bridal gown company. So, essentially I turned in my Rye, jiggers,
and shakers for beads, lace, and lots of tulle.
The first things people usually notice about me
I used to have "my smile...(with some amazingly witty prose that I
had put way too much thought in to)". But, every profile I was
reading on here said "smile". So to avoid sounding like everyone
else, I deleted it. Now you'll just have to wonder what the witty
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: From the Mixed Up Files, Of Mice and Men, The Spirit Catches
You, Junot Diaz, MFK Fisher... you get the idea...
Movies: The Sting is still probably one of my all time favorite
movies (I love a good con movie), Gihbli films, you should check
out my Netflix account
Music: I'm really into SoulCycle, so my music listening right now
is whatever the instructors are in to. I tend to go towards the
"classics"; 90's music, old school R&B, and...er...see
favorite food: Kraft Mac and Cheese and Chinese dumplings. And
lengua tacos. And Korean food. Ok, I have a lot of favorite foods.
The six things I could never do without
My iphone. Wait, does that count as six? I have six apps on it that
I can't live without. I won't go into too much detail, but it
involves zombies, music, birds who are disgruntled, books and
whatever is the new tool in the app store.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
food. I love to eat, but more importantly, I love to cook. Things
around me inspire me and I always want to try new things. I also
spend a lot of time thinking about how to save the world through
food. I haven't quite figured that out yet. But, I'm super close.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to own all the N*SYNC, 98 Degrees, and Backstreet Boys
albums. Yes, laugh all you want, but I was rocking out to "digital
get down", "Give Me Just One More Night (Una Noche)", and "I'll
Never Break Your Heart" in my room with my Discman better than
anyone in those clubs at the time.
You should message me if
you can tell me what your favorite cereal is.
