My self-summary
Who am I in reality? I don't know the answer to that question but it's certainly worth examining. I like existentialism because it's concerned primarily with the kind of navel gazing everyone should engage in - moderately.

I love being outdoors. Despite my NY affectations, I am still a product of the tree-lined freeways of Puget Sound. If you've never seen a mountain west of the Mississippi then you haven't seen a mountain. (Unless you've been to the Himalayas or something, in which case we should talk.)

If you like "Slacker" and the Mountain Goats, well, we might just have something there.

I read and I write.

I try to push the limits of how "intense" one can be without being "intimidating."
What I’m doing with my life
Gggggggggraduate school at NYU in journalism.
I’m really good at
Speaking and relating to Chinese or other sinophones. Writing premature memoirs. Putting my foot in my mouth - or having someone put it there for me.

I love to take pictures. Photography is awesome because it takes things I like - composition, light, expression - and doesn't demand too much in the way of hand/eye coordination or color perception.

I can talk a dog off a meat truck.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm either under- or overdressed for any occasion.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What is the most important event in my life that I've totally forgotten?

Is this the way the world ends? I think about politics a lot. Sometimes I feel like the whole world has gone crazy. Then I remember that a) I'm not alone in feeling this and b) there are more profound realizations I could be having.

Is there such a thing as social/economic justice and, if so, is it not our duty to pursue it?

The global south.

On a typical Friday night I am
Taking back the night. Drinking.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
In third grade we had to run little proto-capitalist booths. Mine was a psychiatric clinic. I had to admit three patients and did not accept insurance.

“The real marriage of true minds is for any two people to possess a sense of humor or irony pitched in exactly the same key, so that their joint glances on any subject cross like interarching search-lights.” 
— Edith Wharton

You want someone to stand outside of al di la waiting for a table with (it's worth it).
