My self-summary
I grew up and lived in Puerto Rico until I was 23 except for two years I spent in Ohio as a little kid.

You won't hear much of an accent because of the aforementioned time in Ohio and because on my return to the island I went to an American school.

I studied Pre-Med at University of Puerto Rico. I'm not a doctor because that was a terrible choice of major that resulted in grades not good enough for med school. I didn't change to a different major because I was too ignorant, stubborn, and immature.

After college I joined the Peace Corps because I thought it would get me into med school. If you've ever been curious about what this is like, I can tell you all about it.

Then I moved to Texas for some more pre-med stubbornness which resulted in much better grades (I was more mature) but, alas, it became too depressing to continue. However, there was a silver lining because moving to the US expanded my horizons so that I could see more careers besides doctor, lawyer, or engineer! I guess I was hungry to make up for lost time because I worked at a great variety of jobs.

I came to New York because "the grass is always greener..." and have worked at a great variety of jobs here as well.

You may be wondering when I will finally settle down in a career. I'm guessing pretty soon because I'm going through the Johnson O'Connor Research Foundation's set of aptitude tests at the moment (April 2014). This along with the self-knowledge I've gathered from all the jobs I've had should allow me to come up with a list of possible careers that fit my strengths and weaknesses.

I'm actually 5' 6.75", but since everyone claims an extra inch or two it would've been foolish of me not to.

As for my personality, I'm intellectual, analytical, logical, that sort of thing. Essentially, I think a lot and am interested in learning. I defy political correctness and cultural crowd psychology. I take criticism like a champ because I have self-knowledge so I know which is valid, which is B.S., which I can do something about (education, job, neighborhood, etc), and which I can't do anything about (height, personality, age, etc.).

I spend a lot of time thinking about
How come those who say "I love to travel" don't say "I love to learn new languages?"

How come those who say "I love my job" also "love to travel?" Don't they want to spend as much time as possible at their job?

Why are there so many people who say they are good at sarcasm? Is it such an easy skill to master?

Do people who "love to laugh" also "love to be happy?"

How come nobody says "I love to think?" Is it because they are too busy laughing?

Is an "I love to travel and be sarcastic" person sarcastic to the foreigners she meets in her travels or is her mockery reserved for us locals?

If a person from another country who "loves to travel and be sarcastic" were to visit us, would he treat us better than our homegrown "I love to travel and be sarcastic" person? If such were the case, wouldn't it be better to swap them?

What term will replace "passionate" when it goes out of style? Will employers be able to conduct interviews without using this word?

If women only want tall guys, how come so many short babies are born?

Are okcupid women who post photos in their underwear just trying to get the attention of an ex-boyfriend?

Why is it that people who want to help illegal immigrants don't think of falling in love and marrying them? Wouldn't that be the ultimate form of help?

How come everyone wants to "stand out" by doing the same things i.e. getting tattoos, jumping out of planes, being liberal/left wingers, traveling to Peru, and loving to laugh?

Your additions to these questions are welcome.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't watch football, baseball, basketball, hockey, soccer, etc. but - Hispanic stereotype alert* - I enjoy combat sports and I immensely enjoy watching the UFC. Hey, it's a stereotype because it's true.
