My self-summary
Due to unforseen circumstances I came here on an airplane when I was eight years old. Here used to be Taiwan, then it was Connecticut, then Canada. Here is DC for now. It's all right here. There seem to be an awful lot of people whose livelihoods depend on facts and not thinking too hard about them. They seem pretty satisfied with their lives. Maybe I'll become one of them. They're always having barbeques.

I've just returned from year of compulsory national service in Taiwan. It's what you have to do if you don't get into graduate school. That's how it works over there. Fascists. Just kidding about the fascism. I get universal healthcare. It's like five bucks to go to the dentist's.

My grandmother doesn't have to go to the dentist anymore. No teeth left. She had a stroke when she was 68, then she grew smaller and smaller and then impossibly smaller. It's been ten years, and she is dry skin draped over brittle bones now. A wind could carry her away like a kite whose string has broken, my grandmother kite.
What I’m doing with my life
Over the past couple of years I have come to really understand two things: I am not a genius, and I fear death. Yet sometimes in my sleep I am still a mathematical genius. In these dreams I walk very slowly because I have about twenty professors hanging on my pantlegs begging me to work on their research.

I studied computation in school and received terrible marksbecause I did not realize I loved it, or I could not admit to myself that I loved it, because I was not a genius at it. Now I study it in my spare time. I write a good many stories that don't have endings. The people just stop talking one day and the cats wander off through blank pages.

I've been working on a concept for a movie. The work is going really slowly, like an iceberg. That's how you know it's going to be really good. All the good parts are under water, invisible to the Titanic of your judgement.
I’m really good at
Picking out books you'd like, beating children at Tetris, pretending to read in a cafe, making you orgasm with my hands, memorizing facts about marine life.
The first things people usually notice about me
My indefatigable spirit and lack of faith in the future of humankind.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
This is something we can talk about on a walk to the bagel shop, unless you're into raisin bagels. If you like raisin breadstuffs I'll unfortunately be obliged to push you into oncoming traffic.
The six things I could never do without
This section is now about

THE THINGS I DESPISE:
1. People who try to enter an elevator before people get out.
2. DHL Canada.
3. Mayonnaise in my sandwich.
4. Laptop speakers at full volume.
5. The cat ate a mouse on my bed. Why. Don't do this.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Reasons for staying awake, touching, breathing, quantum gravity, P vs NP, machine consciousness, my regrets, the accumulation of the infinitesimal, how to write down this moment, girls, the structure of time, the structure of violence, bureaucracy, fractals, evolutionary biology, the logistics of spending the entire day in bed.
On a typical Friday night I am
Are you?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The cat and I drink from the same glass. I don't wash my jeans all that often.
You should message me if
You are sleep deprived. You like the sea.
