I love cooking and trying to learn new recipes. I love cooking for others to enjoy and as my friends have told me, "You are a bitchin' cook!" I take that as a good sign!
I used to be a music major and traveled a bit. I was lucky enough to visit Shanghai twice for a parade as part of a group representing the Tournament of Roses Honor Band and loved getting to see the extreme differences between pre-modernization and post-modernization. Both trips fed into one of my degrees, History with a focus on Asia.
I'm looking to explore the sights and sounds of LA, especially since I haven't really done so, despite living here for most of my life. Places on my list include the Science Center w/ the new Endeavor exhibit and the Hollywood sign, but chances are if you can name a place, I still haven't been and want to go!
My best friend Cristen also wrote a short blurb about me:
"Ben is one of the friendliest, and most optimistic people I've ever met - I'm surprised that he always sees the silver lining in the worst of situations. He's a big-time lover of animals, sports, and a good movie, he's quite an easygoing guy. He's loyal to a fault, as my panicked mid-night calls can attest to. He's helped me get through some really rough patches and I don't know where I'd be without him. I can always count on him."
Oh and I am Homestuck :) if you get this, woohoo!
