Food: Pho (pronounced "fuh" and said with an upwards inflection) is
an all time favorite. Ethiopian, Indian, or any other food that's
appropriate to eat with your hands. I grew up eating homemade
Mexican food (my step-mom's from Mexico) and it is my ultimate
source of comfort. I recently started making mole and I strive to
be the king of moles.
Serious Business Times:
I studied opera. I have an affinity for High Renaissance choral
music, especially Gesualda. I love anything "art music" from the
20th century (seriously, I enjoy listening to John Cage, but George
Crumb is off the fucking charts amazing). I was also part of a
modern music ensemble. I write "music" for it on occasion.

the sound. No joke, this is what I do with almost all my spare
Non-Serious Business Time:
Oh, I also happen to like contemporary popular music too. I'm
overly fond of weird sounding singer/songwriters like Regina
Spektor, Imogen Heap, Joanna Newsom, and Fiona Apple. I like
dubstep and dirty hipster music. I once studied Run DMC for a music
class and found myself pleasantly surprised. Music doesn't have to
be intellectually stimulating all the time, though: Ke$ha's
Cannibal is my anthem.
Shows: the Dr. Whoniverse is the shit. I love Buffy, Archer, My
Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Adventure Time, and other geeky
fare. Guilty pleasures include: Abby's Ultimate Dance Competition,
Honey Boo Boo, Spongebob, and Teen Mom.
Don't hate; masturbate.
Also, one of my favorite webcomics just revealed that one of the
characters is trans and I almost died of pure fankid overload. (I
automatically love you if you know which webcomic I'm talking
