My self-summary
I am a leaf on the wind. Watch how I soar.

My absolute favorite word in the English language is:

cal·li·pyg·i·an [kal-uh-pij-ee-uhn] adj. having well-shaped buttocks.

True facts. That's some Merriam-Webster shit right thurr.
Seriously, how great is English?

I want to be a bear when I grow up because WHY NOT.

I guess I'm just as "weird" or "different" as any other twenty-something drifting through life while seeking self-identity and individuality.
What I’m doing with my life
I'd like to get into journalism, but I'm not sure what exactly I want to do just yet.

Referring to myself in the third person as "that dirty old sod".

Currently I'm working on my bachelor's degree in Sociology and Communication Arts. Very slowly.
I’m really good at
Not panicking. I'm generally phlegmatic. Stolid, even. I'm not insensate by any means, I just try to keep calm mostly.

"Writing is good. Thinking is better. Cleverness is good. Patience is better."
The first things people usually notice about me
"So...are you Chinese or Japanese?"

I'm American, you're an asshole.

"No, really, what race are you?"

Human.

You know all that crap that people say upon introduction where they think they're being awfully clever, but the audience has actually heard many times before? Like if a person is tall and the other person says, "How's the weather up there?" and other really lame icebreaker type comments. Let's skip all that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I absolutely love T.S. Eliot and I enjoy Ogden Nash. Sometimes I think James Joyce's Portrait of the Artist As a Young Man and F.S. Fitzgerald's This Side of Paradise are eerily similar to my life in certain respects. Musically, I really like the Airborne Toxic Event, but I listen to a lot of different things depending on my mood, John Prine, Johnny Cash, Leonard Cohen, Jack's Mannequin, Feist, A Fine Frenzy, Sara Bareilles, The Heavy, Childish Gambino, 2Pac, and The Pogues, just to name a few. Also, Jenny Lewis can do no wrong. So far as television shows go, the only thing I really watch regularly are certain comedic shows like Community, SNL, Archer, and Workaholics, although my newest obsession is HBO's The Newsroom. Currently I'm following Archer Vice and Community. Planning on finishing the last season of HIMYM all at once when it's over.

"If you only read the books everyone else is reading, then you can only think what everyone else is thinking." -Murakami
The irony is that almost everyone I know have read Kafka on the Shore.

The Bridge over the River Kwai and Shoes of the Fisherman are two of my favorite movies. The books were very good as well, they actually complement each other quite well. I don't know when it started, but movies based on books apparently used to be just as good as the books were. Lawrence of Arabia was probably the most powerful (English-speaking) movie I've ever seen. Peter O'Toole's lines in that movie were so quotable. Star Wars (the original trilogy of course) will always remain sacred to me.

(Me watching a movie)
My brother: What's going on? Why's everything so fast?
Me: Everyone's on crack.
Brother: What? What's wrong with you?
(I usually watch movies in 1.5-2x speed.)

Jeff Lebowski's got his shit figured out.

I've seen a ton of foreign movies too, and a lot are worth mentioning. Shintaro Katsu's Zatoichi series is brilliant, but Takeshi Kitano's 2003 version was just slightly better, 2006 Johnnie To film "Exiled" is powerful, and Sergei Parajanov's 1968 "Sayat-Nova" is probably the strangest "trippiest" movie ever, I don't care how weird you think your favorite youtube video is, Sayat-Nova is mindblowing. Biographic depiction of the Armenian legendary poet's life as a traditional Armenian poem-song. Utterly fantastic.

It feels a bit odd to talk about Chinese movies as "foreign" when mandarin is my first language.

Also, did you know that in China, Chinese food is just called "food"?
The six things I could never do without
Ummm, mostly just the one thing, my laptop. I'm an information junkie, I'm always reading something.

I can often be found reading something on my laptop (or writing a paper) while listening to British or Canadian radio comedy shows on my ipod. I have the attention span of a squirrel on crack and massive amounts of simultaneous stimuli help me stay on task.

My most prized possession is a CD I burned of Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger". It's seventy-three minutes and twelves seconds of pure awesome.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If I'm really "less experienced in love". Maybe it's true? Maybe it isn't? Why do I care what some computer program says I am?

How much money goes into funding talking cat research? I hope it's a lot.

"Not bloody likely!"
-Her Royal Highness The Princess Anne Elizabeth Alice Louise, March 20, 1974

Hacker koans. Sometimes zen koans, but mostly the other ones.

Would I like to have been an incroyable or a muscadin during the Thermidorian Reaction? I think I would have liked that era, modern conveniences not withstanding.

I'm constantly thinking, evaluating, analyzing, re-analyzing, over-analyzing, &c., &c. Squirrel on crack. Right craic.

I live constantly between confusion and exasperation. It's quite tiring.
On a typical Friday night I am
Derping around. Derp derp derp.

Eye of the Tiger is on, but NOT on repeat. You can't repeat Eye of the Tiger.

Shomer shabbos by sundown.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really hate cliches and repeating myself.

Sometimes I suspect that I've lost any semblance of a real personality under a mountain of affectations and cultural-historical trivia. In plainer terms, sometimes I think I'm just a chimera-esque creature made up of crap that I like. Then again, who isn't? The only thing I can point to with certainty that I am is cynical and skeptical.

I'm a ginormous cock-up.

You can be tolerant and understanding of an old tired bastard like me.

If you think a tolerant and understanding old bastard is just your cup of tea.

I actually quite like being single. There are some manageable negatives, but generally I like the independence and freedom. I have time for my own interests and to develop myself as a person and I love that. I'm not opposed to a relationship, but I'm also not a sad and lonely man sitting around longing for romance to magically materialize. Let's face it, you ladies are ace, and I'm sure you'll make some lucky person very happy one day, but is that person me? Statistically unlikely.

But personality tests and "window shopping" is such a guilty pleasure of mine...

If you want to break my heart, then do it.
