My self-summary
Hey, so I'm Monica. Phew, Glad we got that out of the way ;p

Art teacher by day, secret agent chef by night. Making life more awesome, one creation at a time.

Credible sources have claimed i am bubbly, fun-sized, weird, and surprising.

Other descriptors include:
Open minded omnivore, creative, crafty/ handy, cuddler, dog owner (a boxer pit bull mix), textbook Pisces. INFP. scatterbrained, easy going, and somewhat awkward.
What I’m doing with my life
teaching kids art, reading, drawing, having fun, staying busy, staying afloat, thinking about my next big step, and enjoying the day to day.
I’m really good at
cooking, baking, smiling, my job, giving hugs. driving manual cars, doodling, worrying too much, being nervous, being klutzy, being real, falling asleep, forgetting to capitalize letters. dispelling asian stereotypes, validating them too. wandering around, holding conversations, losing track of time, and laughing at inappropriate moments (i have been told my timing on this matter is pretty impeccable).

oh and procrastinating. yeah. definitely that.
The first things people usually notice about me
that i'm short, asian, and...i like to smile and laugh?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am an avid reader, but now i'm slowing down on my book appetite because of lack of time for my job. I am in an amazing book club that allows me to broaden my literary scope though. Its also a great excuse to drink and eat amazing food and talk to my friends about books. Haha. However I do love all things Palahniuk, Gaiman, Sedaris, Adams. I'm a sucker for a good story.. and I also love comic books too (<3 sandman, saga, preacher, east of west, batman, fight club 2, wicked+divine)

so as far as movies go, i'm a fan of most genres except war related movies (unless it's character driven). i do have a penchant for comedies, scifi/fantasy, or comic/book related. i catch something new every time i rewatch a movie, so I'm down for reruns too.

I'm pretty open to music nowadays. I used to be strictly indie rock, but now I think I like a little bit of everything...maybe except country... i'm still trying.

I love everything that involves food, and spices. I cook a lot so I will try almost anything once ( im chinese, so ive had some weird stuff). There are only a handful of things I don't think I can ever try again. (Even if your taste buds change every 7 years, i don't think i could ever handle eating sea cucumbers or durian again). Oh, and the spicier the better. If there are noodles involved, I couldn't be happier.
Not to mention, I have a major sweet tooth so I bake lots of treats and goodies. I always share though :)
The six things I could never do without
pen, paper, a well stocked kitchen, my car, my glasses, and my dog.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How awesome my dog is.
what I should cook next.
School stuff.
wouldn't it be cool if....
Why sapiosexual sounds so much dirtier than it really is.
stand up comedy material
the past, present, future, and alternate realities.
On a typical Friday night I am
usually relaxing (ok, ok, sleeping) at my house, unwinding after a long week of getting messy in the classroom.

drinking some kind of alcoholic beverage with friends or coworkers is usually not out of the question either. The alcoholic teacher stereotype, I found out, can be all too real when it comes to fridays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I find the personality tab portion of this site extremely interesting. Seeing how we rate against the "norm" and which attributes are strong or weak depending on how we answered questions is fascinating to me. But I guess that's why I "am less mathematical." To me, its more mathemagical how those formulas and algorithms work :p
You should message me if
you actually read all that jibber jabber and liked what you read.

you have something interesting to say.
please no one liners ie."Hi, how are you?"(lets be real, you're more interesting than that)

you can show me something new. (Like how to play the ukulele or build/fix something)
(Skills are super sexy. haha)

Do not bother if you speak ebonics day to day. (Save it for the hunnies.)
