My self-summary
I'm a dreamer, a wanderer, a runaway. There is nothing like speeding down highway 280 from my native San Francisco, lying in the sand and gazing at the stars, reading a book that is so beautiful it makes me cry. I'm a devourer of ideas, of art, of beauty, of meaning, and I'm nothing if not intense. I live my life passionately, fleetingly, exquisitely, yearning for something to move me. I'm human, terrifyingly, piercingly human, and I want to live my life as deeply as I can. I enrich myself with every moment, wonder at the beautiful, muddle through the terrible, and I positively yearn to dance in the Trevi fountain like Sylvia in La Dolce Vita.
What I’m doing with my life
I just graduated with a degree in English Lit from The University of Chicago. At long last, I have returned from my midwestern exile to revel in all the golden beauty that is California, and the eccentric sophistication of San Francisco! In more concrete terms, I'm working at a mobile gaming startup in Palo Alto doing content design, which I absolutely LOVE! I've also recently realized that I have been unconsciously pining for nature for, well, years, and have been attempting to remedy this with extensive hiking, running, and swimming, and I'm debating returning to horseback riding. I'm back in my Ithaca, after far too long in exile, and all of life is waiting for me to feel it, touch it, taste it!
I’m really good at
Thrift shopping, being occasionally impulsive, being mostly responsible, crying in operas, driving really fast, baking elaborate braided breads, daydreaming, writing (hopefully), anything involving children, reading really quickly, reading a book in one sitting, drawing, knitting, playing the same song on repeat for weeks, making last minute decisions that magically turn out fantastically, finishing what I start, noticing beauty, falling asleep on Caltrain and missing my stop, thinking poetically, thinking with my emotions, not being rational, spending hours in museums, getting scared by spiders, wanting to run away, staying anyway, getting lost, refusing to get a smartphone, surprising people, surprising myself, being restless, concentrating on something for a really long time, appreciating the golden light at sundown, being impatient, yearning
The first things people usually notice about me
I am never what they first thought.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My life is characterized by obsessions. I never do anything halfway; I make no compromises with possibility. Currently, I'm devouring Cormac McCarthy, seeing how many visits to the opera is too many, and listening to whale sounds every night as I fall asleep, so I dream about the sea.

The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life moves in patterns, in circles, and those moments of intersection, of completion, fascinate me. Those moments so perfect they are a death, a caress, a confession, an agony. Where you're so complete that you're not even whole anymore, and the world shatters around you into a thousand falling stars. When beauty thrusts you outside time and into something beyond, an other formed by perceptions and reactions and the haunting voice of the earth and the sky and the sun. And the primeval knowledge laps at you with the gentle passion of a kiss and holds you in impossible perceptions which in that moment, destroy every sense of being.
