My self-summary
Moving to Berkeley to start an MA program. This has been a long time coming (I went on a 6 year detour after undergrad), so I'm pretty stoked. I've never lived on the West Coast before (previously lived in New York, Boston, Beijing and Shanghai), so I'm looking forward to exploring (and avoiding winter). If I'm not studying, I'll likely be looking for live music, food, or good art. Anyone who wants to join, feel free to message me.
What I’m doing with my life
I graduated from university studying Philosophy and East Asian Studies. Afterwards I moved to Shanghai for 2 years to study Chinese before heading to grad school. Somehow that turned into helping set up a sourcing operation, and then moving back to the US to do sales management. Three years later I'm finally leaving the business world to return to studies.
The first things people usually notice about me
I sometimes get "why do you look so angry?" I'm not. I just space out a lot, and forget what kind of face I'm making.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Either/Or (Kierkegaard); Thousand Cranes (Kawabata); E.B. White (mainly the essays), On Food and Cooking (McGee)

TV: Top Chef, Mr. Show, Battlestar, Stella, Home Movies, Clone High, Portlandia, Workaholics

Music: Recently listening to
Junip / Jose Gonzalez
Andrew Bird
The Lower Dens
Efterklang
The Flaming Groovies
Broken Social Scene
Damien Jurado
Wye Oak
Dan Deacon

The six things I could never do without
I'm changing this to "Things that I really enjoy":

1) Coffee (I worked as a barista for a few years in Brooklyn)
2) Whiskey (Typically rye and bourbon, but lately I've been trying to learn more about scotch).
3) Tea (I currently have a few kilos of tea in my apartment)
4) A really good chef's knife
5) Live music (honestly, almost any kind)
6) GIFs of animals doing funny things
I spend a lot of time thinking about
1) Food that I want to cook and/or eat
2) Papers that I want to write
3) Puns that I thought of too late, and whether or not I should say them anyways
4) Should I get a dog
5) How do I explain what I'm doing with my life
On a typical Friday night I am
Cooking with friends, reading books, or at a concert.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Earlier today I was walking and coughed at the same time a nearby train blew its horn. I paused and then coughed again, to make sure I didn't somehow make the noise.
