How's it going? I'm Shuailaowai, and if you know what that means,
please tell me. Ok, I actually know what that means, but it's too
late to change my OkCupid profile name now.
I'm from the Western US, grew up in Portland and lived in San
Francisco for a long time as well. I have been in China since 2010
and enjoy living here because every day is a new adventure!
What I’m doing with my life
I just moved back to SF from China, where I was living for the last
couple years. Let's just say I was "teaching English" and leave it
at that. Disclaimer: "teaching English" does not mean what you
think it means, if that's what you're thinking, so get your mind
out of the gutter!
I’m really good at
In college, I was captain of the Olympic Teddy-Bear Hat
Speed-Walking team (see pics). It wasn't a passion though, just
something I did for scholarship money. Other than that, I like
karaoke, meeting new people and exploring the world around me.
The first things people usually notice about me
-I'm wearing a plad shirt 9/10 times you meet me.
-I smile like "a cat who just ate a canary" [my old boss]
-I casually wear dress socks - no it's not a "laundry day", it's
-I have unusually long eyelashes
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
-Spicy Chinese food
-Flight of the Concords, Season 1 (Season 2 sucks)
-Any live music with a beat
The six things I could never do without
besides the obvious...
-Strong coffee in the morning
-My iPhone...damn you Apple
-The ocean, it's pretty big
-My Black friends (inside joke for those who have read, "Stuff
White People Like."
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-What song I'm going to sing whenever it's my turn to
-When and when not to use italics
-The Portland Trailblazers' next roster move
On a typical Friday night I am
I am sooooooooo random and adventurous, that there is no such thing
as a typical Friday night!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't need a Loufa in the shower, bubbles spontaneously generate
whenever soapy water contacts my body.
You should message me if
you want to.
