I'm a guy who is driven by a strange blend of passion and logic. On one hand, I value the idealistic dreams of romanticism and doing what you love, but on the other hand I acknowledge the sharp thorn of realism within the limited existence of humanity and life.
I play violin and piano. I love kids and love teaching! I am in touch with my Chinese heritage, culture, and language. I love to go karaoke. I am self-critical but not in a deprecating or nonproductive way.
...I have urges every month or so to get drunk out of my mind.
I strive for open mindedness and believe that being open minded is one of the most important traits a person can have. As such I am always scrutinizing my life philosophy and making fine adjustments so that I can be the best quality human being possible. Recently I have been applying this to food, and now I am eating mushrooms and avocado in small quantities despite hating them for twenty years.
I define my general outlook on life as "optimistic realism".
