hmmmmmm.....funny and pretty wild. I'm very sarcastic, so the
sensitive need not apply. I love traveling more than anything in
the world. I've been to 20 countries and have lived outside of the
US. I spent a year directly enrolled in an Argentine university in
Buenos Aires. I often pretend not to "care", but once you get
in....i'm pretty much a puppy dog....but shhhh don't tell
anyone...this tough guy stuff is working :)
No one ever believes that i'm a grad student. I'm just not typical,
in any way. I don't believe in pre-conceived ideals about what one
"should" say, or how one "should" act. I'm really bad at
pretense.....and determining what is and what isn't necessarily
"appropriate" to say.
I am intelligent, unpredictable, and funny
What I’m doing with my life
I have just finished my MBA with a specialization in Finance. I am
planning on Duke's phD program in 2012.
I’m really good at
math, Spanish.....kissing. :)
The first things people usually notice about me
my eyes...or maybe the fact that i'm dancing on the bar ?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books/Lit/authors.: A Fine Balance, Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre,
Turn of the Screw, anything that Poe wrote...anything, Gabriel
García Marquez, Borges, Camus.......i love to read. I also never
wanted Memoirs of a Geisha to end...that book was amazing.
Movies: a MILLION! Y tu mama tambien, amores perros, anything by
Almodovar, L'auberge espagnole,
The six things I could never do without
1) that damn dog and fat cat that follow me everywhere i go
2) financial calculator
4) my grandmother (as you can see these are not listed in order of
5) sex--if so ...this would be closer to the top :)
6) Epitafios....i love Julio Chavez and Cecilia Roth
I spend a lot of time thinking about
people who go to work everyday from 8-5....and never
think......just go through the motions. I'm scared for them.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either studying....cooking...or watching documentaries. Or with
friends.. discussing the iranian political system or ....sex.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really like romance...like ridiculous, sickening romance with
stupid pet names like baby cakes.... :)
I have spent 5 hours working advanced financial theory
applications, but just realized that Thanksgiving is always on a
Also I have a weird relationship with children. I don't like or
dislike them..I'm not sure you can really "like" them if they don't
have developed personalities or thoughts..but they are also very
funny in their honest approach to the world..not clouded by what's
"appropriate" to say. They kind of make me uncomfortable because I
don't know what to say to them..or what to talk about. I'm not
especially well-versed in crayons and such...hmmmm?
You should message me if
you are funny...really funny. You have pretty much accepted the
fact that you're a gardener....and you're okay with it. :) You
really want to hang out, and talk for a while.....or you want to
make out :)
