My self-summary
Please visit the "Photos" tab first for a detailed self-summary. No, I don't sport scruff all the time. It just so happens that most of my photos are of me traveling, when I'm less likely to bother spending time to shave. It's vacation, after all!
Traveling is my primary pleasure. I've visited a few places in the US, mostly in CA, AZ, and western NM for camping adventures, and a few other cities in TX and the DMV area. Some international destinations as well - Canada, UAE (Dubai), Peru, Chile, Singapore, and my homeland.

Upcoming includes:
- Grand Canyon North Rim Aug '17
- Homeland Nov '17

Food is a secondary pleasure. I enjoy restaurants and cafes such as DaoFu and Mission Cafe. Fresh, simple, well-, but not over-seasoned meals elegantly presented are awesome. Once in a while, I try to cook such meals too. Leisurely cooking is relaxation - much like painting. I have a general idea of where I'm going, but I usually cook by sensations (fragrance, taste, appearance) and not by recipe. Not always - there are times recipes are crucial. Of course, this will fail miserably with baking. Needless to say, I don't bake much. However, I was successful baking basic white bread and cinnamon swirl bread - they were both delicious.

And finally, my pets are my joy. There's nothing in the world like coming home after a long work day and being greeted by pets who are happy to see you. Well, at least mine pretend to be. Maybe they're good actors...

Forget about being born a poor black child - I faced much worse. I was born at a very young age!
What I’m doing with my life
Dealing with crap every-single-day. No, really! Wastewater (sewage included) treatment processes and other engineering tasks. But no, I don't typically need to touch the stuff. I have a desk job, mostly. Contractors do the dirty stuff - I tell them what to do.

Paying the bills and providing the basics for my pets and myself. And managing to save a few pennies here and there to indulge in somewhat frequent travel both within and outside the country.
I’m really good at
Being someone else. C'mon! You don't appreciate cliche-bashing?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
- Russell Peters (comedian). Look him up.
- "The Paradox of Choice" (YouTube or TED, watch from 14:00 ish).
--- Apply above to dating. Be happy.
- Greg Palast's "The best democracy money can buy" (book).
- Baraka (Movie. Nothing to do with Barack. But do watch it.)
- Sideways (the movie). Good.
- The Birdcage (movie. RIP Robin Williams). Awesome.

Six things I could never do without
Perfectly complement the other 94. Or perhaps it's the other 994. I think they've complemented but never complimented the other 94 or 994.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- Global warming, lunch, and my next vacation. Thx OKC.
- Whether anyone on here actually responds to messages.
- What's the difference between "wilderness" and "the wild"?
- Can religion and world peace coexist?
- Why I can't find anyone here who hates to laugh.
- What SD singles would do If Potato Chip Rock crumbled. Right? !!!
- zOMG! You're an SD native! How rare! You do exist !!! (Faints a la Santa in the M&M commercial.)
- The number of aunties on this site. I typically don't need to read the caption on your photo. I know it's your niece/nephew.
- Why there are so many cats and tacos on this site.
On a typical Friday night I am
Getting my party on with Netflix and take out.
You should message me if
- You're feeling generous and want to respond to my message.
- You want to comment on my profile.
- You hate laughing - I'd really love to meet you. I'm serious!
- You don't idealize relationships.
- You believe in "friendship last."
- Just because.
- Anything else.

And oh, yes, I am kind and have a kind heart. I know you're either INFJ or INTJ. Yes, I do and I understand you.
The two of us
