My self-summary
I know, I know, everyone says they hate filling these things out, but nonetheless we still fill them out. So yes, I, too hate talking about myself, but here I am, trying once again.

I'm one of those people that confuse you from the get-go. I like going out about town, but I'm introverted. I read things about parts of the world I'll probably never get to. I can stumble my way through two written languages that are not that very useful. A fairly happy person who oftentimes forgets that fact.

I've been told I write well; in fact, I can give speeches that appear lyrical. The sad thing is that inspiration has not hit lately, as you can see by simply reading this.
What I’m doing with my life
Just started a wonderful job as a librarian and moved to Chicago in October 2011. I'm trying my best to make a new friends network and seeing what else will happen.
I’m really good at
Writing. Research. Figuring out new IT systems. Giving speeches. Paying attention to anyone who needs it (unless you're crazy and then, well, good luck).
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm shy. Or I'm smart. Or I'm a smarmy bastard.

It's all about the mood.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
a. Ivan Illyich, Things Fall Apart, Naguib Mahfouz' Cairo Trilogy (or anything else he wrote), Indecent Theology by Marcella Althaus-Reid, Oh, Pioneers!

b. Clue, Chocolat, Firefly/Serenity, The Warriors (original version), Heathers, Batman, Empire Records, Tank Girl, Blade Runner, Elvira: Mistress of the Dark, others I can't think of right now

c. Atmosphere, Amy Ray, Brand New, Mike Gunther, Tom Waits, Fall Out Boy, Kaizers Orchestra, Pansy Division, Matchbook Romance, Motion City Soundtrack, Rocky Horror Punk Rock Show many more...

d. Ethiopian
The six things I could never do without
Books, my laptop, my cell phone, my friends, my enemies, and my family.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Sex. Love. My life in ten years. Friends. Family. The usual.
On a typical Friday night I am
Reading a book, seeing a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love the 1980s "Transformers" and "Rainbow Bright and the Star Stealer" movies.
You should message me if
you enjoy life.
